    4/21 Gamethread - Astros @ Sox - 6:10pm / WGN

    The 4-14 start actually isn't the worst in team history through 18 games. The 1948 club went 3-15. So they've got that going for them! Seriously this is beyond bad even in a rebuilding year, now you've got guys not hustling (Moncada tonight which was why he was pulled) and the manager saying earlier in the week the team's "focus" isn't where it should be. A.Garcia has reverted back to his bad self meaning if he doesn't turn it around he'll have zero trade value, Giolito seems to have left his control in Arizona, the pitching staff may be worse than the staffs from 1968-1970 and tonight they tied the team record, four straight games 10 or more runs (50 allowed in the last five games). 1-7 start at home (wonder when the last time that happened?) Nothing you can say I guess save the 106 loss season of 1970 could be broken this year.

    Infante Up, Smith to Charlotte, Farquhar to DL

    It could have been worse I guess. They could have called back Minaya (not that Infante is THAT much better.

    Rodon/Hansen/Fulmer news

    I take from the comment about Hansen "needing to get back to feeling completely healthy" that there are still some issues. Sox are being very, very quiet about him and the fact that after all this time he may still be dealing with something is very concerning to me. He had "forearm soreness" in spring training after throwing in one game as I recall and then was put on the shelf. Eerily similar to Rodon last year in many ways.
  4. I didn't think it was possible but these guys could lose at least 100 games this year. Sox pitchers have given up 40 runs in the last four games.

    Adam Engel -- how much longer does he have as a regular?

    QUOTE (Jose Abreu @ Apr 18, 2018 -> 09:59 AM) Because he's 27 and there's no point in giving him ABs that could go to someone who might have a future here (Leury, Tilson, etc) L. Garcia is an infielder trying to play the outfield. I suspect he really has no future here either. Tilson can't stay healthy and until he does over a longer period of time he's probably not in the Sox plans long term either.

    Outfield Overload - the Dash Five

    If they can stay healthy that's a talented group of potential impact players at the big league level.
  7. The Sox "Turned Back the Clock" with the 1968 uniforms. They also played like that garbage team did. 95 losses that year, a MLB record 44 by one run.
  8. QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Apr 17, 2018 -> 11:15 PM) 46,028 White Sox should try that for some of their weekday APRIL/SEPTEMBER games. With lousy weather in April and school in session in September it'll never work. And JR isn't going to give anything away for free.

    Adam Engel -- how much longer does he have as a regular?

    Anytime you play an infielder in the outfield (L. Garcia) you are looking for trouble.

    Interesting story from CBS Sportsline: https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/mlbs-big...-worse-in-2018/
  11. QUOTE (flavum @ Apr 14, 2018 -> 05:13 PM) Open date June 4th. 6/4 (2) 6/5 6/6 (2) 6/7 I give the Twins credit they were not going to force fans and players to attempt to work through this weather. Kudos to them, unlike some other teams. Even Maddon of the Cubs in his postgame today came out and categorically said they should have never played the game at Wrigley Saturday.
  12. QUOTE (Wanne @ Apr 13, 2018 -> 05:27 PM) And then you have for the 2nd week in a row all the warm weather teams playing each other...AGAIN. I get it's not easy to make these schedules...but for the love of cripes...it can't be rocket science to figure out how to mix it up so teams are playing in warmer weather climates at the beginning of April. There's enough teams. Nah...that would make to much sense! I'm glad the entire weekend may be cancelled. These guys are going so bad right now they need to step away and take a break mentally.

    White Sox @ Twins 4/12

    This offense is starting to remind me of the Ventura years when they were scoring three runs or less 45% of the season. They need two or three days of snow/postponements to get their heads out of their asses and start fresh. Guys look absolutely lost right now including Moncada although he's not the only one. Bummer by the way has allowed six of his eight inherited runners to score and Giolito seems to have no control right now (weather could be a factor). Anderson continues on his way of making either a mental or physical error at least once a game. You just hope 2020 comes along fast and things work out.

    Joe McConnell R.I.P.

    Eddie Einhorn was right in 1983 when he stated that the Sox could never get fair coverage as long as the Tribune Company owned the Cubs (I still think they have 5% of the team), the Tribune, WGN-TV, WGN Radio and (at that time) CLTV. It was in their best interest business-wise to promote the Cubs as much as possible.
