Thursday's throwdowns

More news the Obama administration won't like:
"The number of Americans filing for initial unemployment insurance jumped last week to the highest level in 3 months, the government said Thursday. There were 479,000 initial jobless claims filed in the week ended July 31, up 19,000 from a upwardly revised 460,000 the previous week, the Labor Department said. The weekly figure is the highest since the week ended April 10, when 480,000 initial claims were filed."

White Sox 4, Tigers 1: the Tigers still aren't hitting, still have injuries...and the season begins to drain away.
Rangers 11, Mariners 6: the Rangers have an owner, finally. And they have a win, with the big news being they got some big home runs and finally scored some runs. That needs to continue.
