Someone at Fangraphs thinks the Sox play "great defense."
Dave Cameron of Fangraphs thinks that the 2013 Sox have been "pretty great" at defense.* He made that point twice in this article: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/pitch...-can-also-hit/
It is quite obvious that he has not watched these Sox play this year, or at least not enough to criticize Hawk's comments about the Sox' defense this year. Yet, he seems to think he is informed on the subject.
"I have the ultimate respect for White Sox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Red Sox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country." Jim Caple, ESPN (January 12, 2011)
"We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the (bleeding) obvious is the first duty of intelligent men." — George Orwell
