 CHICAGO (AP) -After watching the Chicago White Sox's bullpen blow leads in consecutive games to the Chicago Cubs, general manager Kenny Williams sounded off Sunday, saying the team's overall play has been ``embarrassing.''
The bullpen gave up nine runs in a combined 2 1-3 innings Friday and Saturday, squandering seventh and eighth inning leads respectively in back-to-back losses at Wrigley Field.
``Everything is irritating me,'' a visibly upset Williams said. ``I hope something changes. I hope we go out there and play to our capabilities to a much more consistent level. This is embarrassing.''
The White Sox, who won the World Series in 2005 and then missed the playoffs a year ago despite a 90-victory season, were 20-19 before Sunday's series finale against the Cubs.
In the 10 games before Sunday, the White Sox's bullpen was 1-3 with a 10.64 ERA and three blown saves, giving up 15 walks and 36 hits in than span.
``When we have a lead, we're not able to hold it,'' Williams said. ``That's not what we're about. We've got better pitching than that.''
Williams said he wasn't afraid to shake up the roster but said that isn't the problem right now.
``It's not about the talent,'' Williams said. ``This is about playing, to a greater degree, up to our capabilities. ... We need to start picking it up now and start playing like the team that we're capable of playing.
``I'm not afraid to shuffle the deck if something isn't working,'' Williams said. ``The veteran guys, older guys knows that. But I think the new guys, somebody needs to put something in their ear.''
