It’s like lifetime baseball fans have never paid attention to more baseball than was right in front of them.

The team result was certainly more than adequate. The Sox probably would have won if they hadn't scored after the seventh. Fortunately, we'll never know. Sanchez drove in as many runs through seven as the Jays scored all day. The Jays meanwhile gave the White Sox an abundance of opportunity in the last three innings, and the five runs in the last three innings proved the difference in the game.

My initial statement wasn't even a criticism, really. It was an observation that the Sox wasted scoring opportunities. I think you not caring about wasting scoring opportunities is ridiculously misguided, but I really only mention that in response of your defense of wasting scoring opportunities.
Your standards are unrealistic. Hitting a baseball is really hard, and hitters are going to fail at it a lot more often than they succeed at it.

Apparently so is running the bases, playing defense, throwing to the right base and pitching.

Pitching: (WHIP, BB, WP & ERA)

Team Fielding: (# errors, fld %)

Baserunning appears to have improved, albeit for a partial season, when compared to last's years results:

Agreed.

Who would we rather have now - Narvaez or McCann & Colome? And note that McCann is only a little less than 2 years older than Narvaez.

I'll take Narvaez and McCann by a mile.
