You're right that it would be have dumpster diving but it seems like other teams are much better at it than we are.

I can't ever recall being this upset so early in the year. Even the horrific start of '11 was more bearable to me because I really felt like we had tried to improve the team in the offseason and it just wasn't working. This feels like no one really gives a damn.

The reason why this team sucks is the same reason that saying exists, the one that sais you're an idiot for repeating the thing that didn't work for you the firs time. This sox team has tried this and has finished as well as it could last year. That's it; there is no magical potion or addition that would have taken this team into amazing levels. Nope, we did nothing, tried the same formula and hoped I would work. This team will do horribly, and everything will suffer. The white sox have no farm system and an aging club. A dark time in baseball might be ahead of us.

Greatest Arsenal goal I have ever witnessed. Chills to this day watching it.

Did Alexei have a play at third though? There was a runner on second at the time.

Well, there was one year not that long ago where the Sox were out of it by Memorial Day. I am in no mood to look it up to revive those old memories.

The pitching has been pretty solid, but the anemic offense has been magnified by the pathetic defense so far. A home run in the first inning, and NOTHING the rest of the way? Pathetic.

I did this before I saw similar thoughts in this thread.

It worked when I said Fire Lovie. Adam better contact a moving van company......

Dunn's performance has been unacceptable for 80% of the time he's been here, at some point you have to start blaming the management for insisting to keep playing him.

The 2012 Sox over performed, this team is playing to its (low) potential thus far.
It's frustrating, but no one can say they didn't see it coming. Throw in a few injuries and this is a bad team.

With Adam Done and Keppinger not hitting, and factor in the injuries to Beckham and the Tank, its easy to see why this team is struggling offensively.
Hahn said today now is not the time to panic. I wish I could agree with him. The team has lost 2 games in the last week because of a lack of hitting. We have wasted 2 good pitching outings by Quintana and Peavy. I hope something is done and like quickly to help this offense.

It is hard to tell because I was watching the game on TV.

You mean other than the incessant ranting about Ozzie's insistence on playing him in 2011 -- which was evidence Ozzie had quit on the team? And by the way I am sure glad we have new management that emphasizes fundamentals during spring training.

We've seen Ramirez **** up at key times before. He's not going to change just like he refuses to bunt.

Crying shame to keep wasting good pitching performances because the offense is absolute dog****. 6th time in the last 10 games three runs or less.

Even more embarrassing they couldn't solve a pitcher with a sky-high ERA.

13 more strikeouts today.

White Sox baseball...a swing...and a miss!

I don't know if I would say throwing over to first to get the second out is a **** up. I thought it was a good throw that a good first baseman makes.

Dunn hasn't had a hit since April 11 and is in a 0-for-29 slump. 6 hits and 23 K's on the season so far.
