Sale ought to find a tube sock, stuff it with baseballs, and pound the hell out of every position player on this pathetic excuse for a team.

And when Sale is done, he should hand said baseball-stuffed tube sock to Quintana, to repeat the procedure, just for good measure.

Seriously!? What does Sale, or Q for that matter, have to do to get a win these days??!? This team is just pathetic. #Ugh.

- Rios, Dunn and Flowers stranded 11 runners combined tonight. The team stranded 7. Keppinger had the lone XBH (a double).

+ Beckham's 2/3 night brought his average up to .336. It's time to move him up in the order.

+ Sale.

Not much else needs to be said.

I can't recall in my lifetime a White Sox team that has turned out this way. In other bad years you usally saw the bad year coming. I figured at worse, this would be a 500 team. This team has become a total train wreck. I don't think too many people saw this type of season coming. When this team is a couple of runs behind you realize that the game is over. I just wonder what/if anything Hahn is going to do.

I liked Tampa's hypothetical throwbacks tonight...kinda like a combination of the 70s Padres, Expos and Brewers. Too bad the Sox couldnt have worn the sweet powder blue '72 road unis instead of the red homes.

Lots of empty blue seats took me back to somewhere. The team's play takes me back to 1970 in particular. Would they be any better if a Rah, Rah, Gung Ho, baseball lifer type were managing? They look like they could use a good shock of some kind.

Glad I went to The Jungle Book downtown tonight instead of watching more crappy baseball.

I don't think this team could beat the 1970 team in a 4 game series.

I liked them, too, although with the Sox wearing their home red/whites I thought it looked odd. In other words, the Rays last night were wearing throwback uniforms from a decade in which they did not yet exist against a team wearing throwback uniforms from a decade in which they did. And they were doing so in their home park wearing road uniforms playing a team wearing home uniforms, and yet the park was built for the road team wearing home uniforms and not the home team wearing a road uniform.

Maybe Baloo can be the next manager.

9 replies (before me) can attest to the enthusiasm that this team brings to the table.
On a side note, I would appreciate if you would bring that trade value up Rios.

Missed the Sox game to go watch Kane County play. Felt like a Sox game, though, as the Chicago-area team got shut out on a three-hitter.

There's no reason why Beckham should still be hitting 8th.

He should bat second. But that would require shaking up the order...might hurt the confidence of him and this team. Certainly can't risk that.

For those who watch the games, is Beckham actually looking better at the plate, or is it just that his doinks and grounders are experiencing a period of falling in? I notice he is honoring the tradition of not walking much.
