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

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.

The unfortunate part is that the offense has no help on the way. Gordon, while hurt, has been below average at the plate since after his rookie year.

I don't really know what to say. Is Hahn really the answer, IDK but it's probably to early to tell on that.

I have been saying it for the last 3-4 seasons now. There is nothing worse than having a team that can't hit.

I would take the no pitching all slugging Jerry Manuel teams over this crap all day any day.

Didn't win ****, but at least kept me interested to watch every night. Tired of 5 hit 2-3 run performances every night. I rather watch Soccer.

Again the lack of offense is giving the pitching staff no room for any mistakes.

Sox have now failed to drive in a runner in scoring position in their last 10 opportunities. Now 17-104 on the year (.163)

Sox have now scored three runs or less in 10 of their 19 games (53% -that's high even for the Sox)

Defense is awful, hitting is worse. The good thing I guess is that unless they snap out of it (or get healthy) by June it's not going to matter. Easier on the fans.

Peavy and Rios will get them something. Ramirez not much, Konerko nada.

Way way way too early to know that. Guy was given nothing.

The Sox will never do that.

At the very least, bench him for good. Piss him off so much he negotiates a buy out/deferment with the Sox as opposed to riding the bench the entire year.

Not sure if it's allowed with the CBA, not an expert in that department.

The problem is, I am not sure I have faith in the White Sox scouting department to identify talent worth getting back from those guys. Aren't a lot of the guys who thought that Wilson Betemit was the next Juan Uribe and Jeff Marquez was the next Jon Garland still around?

I think Konerko could get you a busted prospect in need of a change of scenery. Plenty of teams have those guys lying around. Early returns on Gillaspie seem positive.

Nice thing about the expanded playoffs is there are going to be more contenders, which means more buyers, which means it's a seller's market.

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.

FWIW, I don't know if it was Ozzie or the Sox, who seem to be black hole for talent lately, but since he moved on from here, he's actually been a pretty productive player. 2010-2012 his line is .280/.346/.459 while playing about 100 games per season.

That weird moment of serenity after puking.
