Default How stupid is this team?

I never thought a Major League team could be this poor at grasping baseball fundamentals until I saw this team. What happened to this bunch? It's like they all took an oath in spring training that they would look nine-year-olds regularly. Amazing how the same group that had the fewest errors last season could turn into this. How could baserunning turn into one of our worst traits? Worst of all, they just don't seem to care. Some of these guys are clearly in the wrong line of work.

This product is beyond unwatchable. And the worst part is, you know it's coming each and every game. I can't remember ever seeing a team that is this inept.

1962 Mets but they have an excuse, they were an expansion team.
What Casey said about the Mets applies to the Sox; "Can't anyone here play this game."

Dumbest team I've ever seen. They could screw up a one-car funeral.

I salute those of you who can still watch this team. I tuned in today to watch Rienzo, and I'll still watch every time Sale pitches, but other than that I just can't justify spending three hours of my day watching a team that is not only terrible but fundamentally inept.

I've been a die-hard Sox fan since 1992 and I can't remember another squad that raised my ire quite like this one. It's embarrassing to watch.

Same reason I tuned in today. I find myself tuning in every night out of habit, but quickly have to change the channel as I start to get angry. It's just not worth the time or headache.

We need at least 15 new players on this team for next season.

I love our young pitching rotation (including Jones &Reed), Beckham defense, and Avisail Garcia

We need a starting catcher, 1B, SS, 3B, CF, LF, and bullpen help

De Aza not tagging on a ball hit to deep center field is the icing on the cake for me. Unbelievable. I think you learn what to do in that scenario in little league.

Beckham might be the most expendable as he has legit prospects behind him. Well, Rios too.

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).

So, gameday said Rios lined out to center. I thought it was a tough break; was it deep enough for De Aza to score?

It wasn't a deep fly ball, but it was deep enough for him to tag. At the crack of the bat he took off from 3rd, instead of going straight back to tag like he should of. Real dumb and par for the course for this season.

How stupid is this team? What other team can mess up 2 rundowns and not tag on 3rd base to tie the game on 2 different opportunities in a span of one week?

Rather than stay home last night and watch the garbage team on TV, we decided to go see the Joliet Slammers. Better fundementals on Joliet & Windy City!

I'll save the marketing department the time and effort and give them the slogan for the 2014 White Sox: "Dead Men Walking".
