You're not going to believe this considering the White Sox have gone 2-5 since last week's Hitters Poll, but there weren't exactly a lot of points scored by our South Side Hitmen this week.
In fact, only two Sox players even managed to break the 20-point mark this week, and it was from that bastian of power hitting, the White Sox middle infield.
Here's the latest.
|5||Alejandro De Aza||369||5||8|
Yeah, Alexei Ramirez continues his hot hitting of the last few weeks -- you know the old saying, when the weather warms up, so does Alexei three months after the weather warms up -- but the biggest surprise here is Gordon Beckham.
Is it nice to see Gordon having such a strong week? Of course, it's better than the alternative. The problem is that when Gordon Beckham is your biggest bat in the lineup for a week you're going to go 2-5 and watch your division lead shrink rapidly.
Another problem is having Alejandro De Aza out-produce Adam Dunn, Kevin Youkilis and A.J. Pierzynski in only two games.
