This team is not very good at playing baseball.

The first five months of the 2012 season was the aberration. This is the 2011 team. I really think Dunn is single handedly wrecking this franchise.

The best thing they could do right now is to release Dunn tomorrow. . .would make the lineup better and make a statement to both the team AND the fans that this performance is unacceptable.

Glad I didn't watch this one. I'd have been mighty depressed otherwise.

I truly think that Ventura has already checked out and doesn't want to manage next season. Can't say I blame him, the offense was abysmal before he got here. An absolute disgrace.

Adam Dunn is unwatchable, unproductive for weeks on end. I'm sick of his stupid bubble gum. Keep it in your mouth for gosh sakes. We could of had Giambi or Hafner for LH DH for less money/commitment.

That the Sox management thought Adam would be fan popular because he couild hit 40 HRS, is a affront to all true Sox fans. We know Donkey Crap when we see it.

I am waiting for Robin to assert himself and move Adam down in the lineup. Dont' make me turn on you Robin, you played the game the right way, don't become a ***** now.

Teams are not paying high dollar/long term contracts for DH's. Once again the Sox are behind the learning curve. From the TV broadcasting booth, radio booth, front office, minor leagues, the Sox are a laughing stock of incompetence. It starts at the top and our fearless leader Jerry, can sit in his office with all his memorabilia and feel fufilled.

If Robin had balls, he would move him down to eighth or ninth in the lineup.

Please eat the money and release him, show the fans that someone in this organization has a clue.

I agree. When he comes up, he sucks whatever life is in the crowd out of it. But, keep running him out there every day in the 4 or 5 hole. I know the team is short-handed, but at least TRY something different. Make it look like there's an effort. Move Gillaspie to the 2 hole. Bat Keppinger lower, bat Dunn lower. Yeah, it will be like the bottom of a national league team order, but what they're doing now isn't working either.

How? No one would take any of these guys. This is a bad baseball team playing bad baseball, a result of years of bad moves and totally neglecting the farm system.

You could probably fetch a nice return for Rios and Peavy. Maybe Konerko. Maybe Alexei.

The rest? Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh....

Peavy could probably get something, I still think Rios' contract is prohibitive. Konerko has 10/5 rights (though why he would want to stay), Alexei might get something as well.

Rios only has one more year at $12.5 million and then a $1 million buyout for 2015 which is very reasonable for a guy whose hitting .313/.387/.597 and 3 stolen bases already.

Hopefully he stays healthy and productive for a few more months, I really do think some contender looking to add a bat would add him at this point. The nightmare of 2011 is long in the rear view mirror.
