Sold.

That's one of six series wins in two months. And only one of TWO TOTAL series wins against a team with a winning record.

I'm not sure this isn't the WORST team in baseball, period.

Caller on Rongeys show said Konerko was too worried about the Hawks game tonight. I guess Dionar Navarro doesn't like hockey.

Hockey's been on Konerko's mind for a while.

You're like a minstrel show of pessimism.

Come on now, it's not like my facts were wrong. We've been pretty ****ing pathetic all year and our run differential suggests we'll be fighting for last all year too.

Yeah, but I really miss that unique batting stance Rios had under Walker.

Cub catchers have hit 4 homers in the last 10 innings....Sox catchers have about 4 passed balls in that stretch.

Gasp!

Getting outscored 18-2 in 21 innings is bad enough, but against this bunch of rabble?

I am close to saying...blow it up....or maybe trade DWise for Ryan Sweeney, move Dayan to first,and trade Pk for prospects.

You know what? They could even be worse than the Marlins. The Sox don't even have the excuse that they are forced to trot a pitcher out there 11.1% of the time.

A .293 OBP. I'd be annoyed if more than one starter had an OBP lower than that. The Sox have a .293 OBP as a team. They have a bottom-5 OPS, a bottom-2 OBP, and are bottom-3 in the AL in slugging.

In his last start, Santiago gave up 2 ER and struck out 9 against Boston.
Why is he relegated to middle relief, again?

Not that he pitched well today.
But that's 0/2 for Danks.

This team's not much, but my concern is that we're going to use July 30 as a time to give players away to cut payroll and make friends, as per recent times, rather than engineer tightly negotiated trades to reload this team with young players.

For once, glad I was at work instead of watching more pathetic offense and a loss to a garbage dump team.

With their prospects and farm...I'm not sure I wouldn't switch rosters. In fact, I can't imagine I wouldn't. They'll probably end up with a worse record, but they've got a lot of pieces to build around for the future. We've got like one.

Danks is just another example of a stubborn organization thinking they know better than everyone else.

Experimental surgery? No problem, he'll be ready for the season. No control or velocity? No worries, Danks at 60% is still worth the price of admission!

It's debatable whether Danks should have had the surgery to begin with. But there's really no good examples of both guys that did or didn't having a successful career afterwards anyway. And Danks, unlike most, has youth on his side. But acting like things would be fine in year one, and building the roster around that notion? Someone needs to get canned for that one.

All that because this big market team has been run like a small market team for years. It's time for JR and his gang to sell. Except for 2005 his ownership has been a bust. Making the post season only 5 times in 32 years is pathetic.
