Thornton is worse than worthless.

Maybe we can get a contender to give us a prospect to send Thornton to their closest rival.

Who did the Sox trade to get Garza? *plenty of scouts at the game*

It seems among the position players, only Phegley and Beckham actually give a damn. Maybe Gillaspie as well, but he appears not to be adjusting to pitchers' adjustments to him.

Just watching the scoreboard is like having ammonia mist sprayed in my nose.

Left in the eighth. Don't think I can subject taking friends and family to see this horrible show anymore.

That awkward moment when a loss to the Cubs in which Matt Thornton pitched like hot garbage to crack the game wide open doesn't stir up any semblance of desire in the fanbase to even give a ****.

What's Phegley look like to you? Backup C/DH type? Nice to see Cooper instructing him and Santiago after letting Soriano waltz to 3rd base. That's when a great organization teaches this stuff. In the dugout at the major league level after you've been pantsed.

Thornton has been on an expert slope with one ski ever since he blew the All-Star Game a couple years ago. And yet, he still has enough to fix and some team may take a chance on him. Not for immediate help, of course. That ship has sailed.

1) This has to be another low in our 2013 season. We can't beat the Cubs at least once this year. Of course every game and every series is the same. This White Sox team CAN'T HIT. I have no doubt in my mind if Phegley keeps hitting, he'll be batting either 4th or 5th in our lineup by the end of the year.
2) The Cubs manager is a low life *******. He brought in a left handed pitcher to face Dunn in the ninth inning when his team was up by 6 runs and there was already one out in the inning. He obviously was rubbing it in the White Sox face by doing something like that. After he gets fired by the Cubs somewhere down the line, I'll be glad to see him in the unemployment line.

I thought it was odd as well when they brought in Russell, but the Cubs are in such a "selling" mode they may be throwing him out there for one of the 300 scouts who were evidently at the game tonight. Russell is poison for left handed hitters, but righties hit something like .350 against him.

It was strange - but who knows.

This is about the lowest I've ever felt as a White Sox fan. I won't be watching anymore games this season. These bums aren't worth my time. Time to catch up on my reading.

Could it be he would rather not have had Blake Parker, a recent recall who is rumored to be a possible closer, get taken deep by the biggest threat to do so? I really don't think it's a big deal at all. He's also likely on the market - Russell that is.

What more can be said about our bad team. It's just a dumpster fire right now. We might lose 100 games. Phegley is at least a bundle of energy so far. On a different and somewhat odd note, what was the deal with Garza strutting on to the field during the first inning while the game was in progress thus holding up the game. At the risk of sounding like Hawk, "in all my years watching this game, I have never seen that before." When he did finally get out there in the bottom of the inning, he took something like 3 min to throw his first pitch to De Aza. Very odd behavior from their ace.
