As Jim Thome gave his post-game interview and wiped the shaving-cream from his face I felt as let down as an ugly girl at prom. I wanted to blame someone for this loss. Anyone. But as I gave it some thought I wasn’t sure exactly whom the blame should fall on.

The candidates appear to be:

  1. Ozzie Guillen
  2. Matt Thornton
  3. Bobby Jenks
  4. Kenny Williams
  5. Paul Konerko


So I’ll outline the suspects and you can decide for yourself. Because just like the ugly girl, I still want to go dancing, and if finding a scapegoat for this gut wrenching loss is the only way to move on then that’s what I’m going to do.
