I'm trying to be patient, but Keppinger and Dunn need to get their heads out of their rear ends.

Dunn is useless.

Have the balls to bench him already, please!

It was good to see Sale's velocity rebound. He isn't the kind of pitcher that can be effective without it.

I think my offseason prediction of 72-75 wins was way to optimistic. This team is hitting like it wants to challenge for 100 losses.

Sale didn't help himself either. We might be going to extras without the HBP and error in the 5th. Dunn and his hands of stone didn't help.

Sadly, SPs are going to need to realize that giving up more than 2 runs and you are not going to win.

Anyone think Gavin Floyd is capable of this? He'll give up 2 runs before warm-ups.

Ventura pinch hits for the hot Viciedo.
He pinch hits for the .364 hitter Gillsespie.
But he lets one of the worst hitters in the majors, Wise, hit with the game on the line. Pure clown managing.

Wise must have something on the Sox. He shouldn't be on this roster at all with his career .260 OBP (I had hoped Hahn would rid this organization of love of low obp hitters), much less leading off and allowed to hit in clutch situations.

Otherwise, just a poorly played game. Dunn looks like he's dun.

Viciedo hurt his oblique on his AB. What game were you watching?

DL trip coming up.

Adam Dunn needs to hit in the bottom three.

In the 5th, he hit Bonafacio and then threw the ball away when he had him picked off, resulting later in another run (no way Dunn throws him out at the plate even if he fields that ball).

Unfortunately with this Sox offense, you can't make any mistakes.

This is what has driven me crazy since this started to become an issue in 2001. Typical Sox performance...score seven runs one night, look good hitting the ball...24 hours later, they look totally impotent. Measly four hits. Make two more errors to boot and lose.

They just can't seem to find any consistency. Guess that comes with the territory when it's basically 'home run or nothing...'

4-5-6 hitters in the lineup now batting .241, .105, .229

Dunn looks even worse right now than he did in 2011 if that's possible.

Eight more strikeouts...only one walk.

Maybe they'll hit better at home, guess we should be grateful they got three wins on the road trip...could have been worse I guess.

Regarding Dayan, if he's out for any period of time (third Sox player to possibly go on the DL and this season is less than a month old...) that means his "replacements" in the lineup are either Wise or Jordan Danks. Nice having a quality bench isn't it?

Don't know if this was mentioned during the broadcasts or the road trip but Hahn was with the club for the entire 10 games getting a first hand look at what he has.

I think that's actually good since Kenny especially in the last few years didn't go on the road much.

Having Hahn around enables him to talk directly with his on field staff as well as talk directly with scouts. (And there were a bunch watching the Sox already on this trip - especially Floyd - although I can't understand why anybody would want him. Maybe the scouts are being sent by other teams who already have an idea the Sox could be big sellers by mid June...)

"You don't care what the weather is like. You just want to go home. It has been a long, rough trip." -- Robin Ventura.

Dunn went 1-33 on the 10 game road trip. 1-33! http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...,2609620.story

Dayan says he's feeling better and doesn't think he'll go on the DL. We'll see.
