4 runs in 3 games, not going to win too many series' doing that.

Other teams must salivate when they see the White Sox on their schedule this season.

Congrats to Josh Phegley on his first major league home run.

Great question. Maybe they're waiting for the All Star break.

In order to have a firesale, don't you need to have something someone would want?

I'm sure other teams would want Beckham, Sale, Danks, Rios, Crain, Alexei, and Peavy.

Have my fingers crossed that some teams are willing to take Dunn, DeAza, Thornton, Keppinger and Konerko.

Now may be a good time to trade Rios. He's starting to resemble a little bit of the listless Rios we saw in 2011. He's hitting around .250 with 1 HR over the last five weeks. Aside from that, probably the worst hitting Sox team since I became a fan as a kid in '81.

Danks has pitched well the last three starts and Beckham looks good at the plate. That is all.

What a precipitously steep tailspin this season has been. You go from bored to angry to just plain laughing at the spectacle. It's very sad when most fans are still watching the team only for some twisted comedic value, whether it be on the field or from the broadcast booth.

I'm a younger guy at 26, so I don't remember any of the bad teams from the 70s and 80s. I had considered the 07 season to be the ultimate low point in my life as a White Sox fan. Until this season rolled around, that is.

I hope Crain can come back healthy for a couple starts and showcase himself. I'd be looking hard to see if teams will bite on Rios too. No one other than Sale should be considered safe from being traded. I would trade a guy like Dunn for prospects even if you have to eat the salary to sweeten the deal.

For free perhaps, but I don't know that anyone wants to take on Rios, Danks, Alexei and Dunn unless the Sox eat a large portion of salary. I don't think what they offer production wise, currently, is equal to the price in money teams would owe these guys down a stretch run.

Peavy, Crain, Thornton and Keppinger may be you most easily traded pieces. Beckham and especially Sale would garner interest, but there's really no guarantee that what you'll get back, especially with Sale, will even be remotely close to as good as they are now, so why trade them?

Danks has been pretty encouraging. I figured he would be a lot more up and down, but he has shown pretty good command of his secondary pitches. Whenever Rick wants to, he can go ahead and sell some pieces and hope Crain gets back at a reasonable time.
