After the 1976 season the White Sox acquired 3 good hitters,(good not great hitters) Zisk, Gamble and Soderholm. The 1977 White Sox won 90 games. The only thing that team could do was hit. It couldn't pitch, catch or throw. If the 1977 White Sox had the 2013 White Sox pitching staff they would of been in the playoffs. The point I'm trying to make is I'm optimistic about the White Sox future. With this pitching staff the team needs at least 3 more hitters to contend next year. Their in much shape trying to obtain hitters than what they would be if they were trying to obtain 3 starting pitchers. The only thing keeping me going the rest of this season is I'm hoping they bring up Garcia and Johnson sooner rather than later.
Thank you for taking me back to 1976 and 1977. I enjoyed reading your post and appreciate your optimism, especially right now. And to answer the original question, no I did not see this coming.

October26 - Thank you to the 2005 World Series Champions Chicago White Sox!
October26 - Twenty-SEVEN years ago, I married my husband on October 26. Since that day, we have been blessed with a wonderful family. Then, on October 26, 2005, when the baseball gods bestowed their good fortunes upon us, we saw the White Sox win the World Series. An incredibly talented team of grinders made every Sox fan's dream come true. My family and I celebrated with reckless abandon. And now, we look forward to that day when our White Sox will once again be World Series Champions!

We need 3 or so run producers on this team. But if the rest could be league close to league average hitters, or even a few below, but could run the bases (and I don't mean steals) that would help immeasurably and we could be respectable.

The White Sox are 14th not 4th in OBP according to ESPN

All it tells is a really bad sox offense has been pretty good in a small sample size with RISP. That's it.
