9/4 White Sox at Twins

Melky, Abreu Nd Frazier still battling. All with two out hits

For the most part, the offense has been OK recently. What is killing them is 40% of the rotation and the amount of guys who should be in Charlotte in the bullpen.

They lose 13 in a row and into town comes Dr Ventura and his cure-all remedy team. Division record is beyond rational comment

Dodgers.

Preaching to the choir.

But that will be a heavy, heavy excuse used by the FO.

Really, you think the Sox should and could be be like the Dodgers? That may be the craziest thought ever.

Good point.

Well this FO, indeed it is crazy to think there could be the least bit of farm depth or decent talent sitting in AAA.

The Los Angeles Dodgers lost Clayton Kershaw for what, 1/2 the season, and are still in 1st place?

 

I never want to hear how losing Zach Putnam and Jake Petricka totally doomed this franchise while the Dodgers lost Kershaw for 1/2 the season and are still in 1st place. And he was only like 20% of what they've lost to injury.

 

Good teams deal with injuries. The White Sox whine.

 

Hell, the team that is going to win the AL Central lost their #3 hitter coming into the season for the entire year and had another OF get caught. And somehow, they had a good enough roster to overcome that. But we'll never match the Indians payroll, they're juggernaut.

The Los Angeles Dodgers can also throw many around like no other team. While we all fret about the $20 million the Sox have to pay Shields the next 2 years, they can piss that away and no one thinks twice.

 

It may be the dumbest comparison ever. Take away Kershaws $30 million and they still have a significantly higher payroll than the White Sox.

And that payroll is not the main reason they withstand injuries.

They have organizational depth.

Heck, it was they who passed on Frazier,preferring Sox prospects.

 

Petricka and Putnam are average at best relievers; Lawrie is avg or below at 2b; same with Avilia and Jackson. The Sox didn't exactly lose high talent.

Well then I guess you make a strong case why we need to be happy with 4th place.

BS. They had a $249 million vs.. $114 million payroll advantage. If you don't think adding $135 million to the payroll won't increase depth, you are high. That doesn't even count the signing bonuses and penalties they take for international signings.

And the reason they passed on Frazier was because they ha a 3B.

 

And they traded Montas for Rich Hill. Hero worshipping.

 

The current White Dox with half the roster AAA talent, should be your wet dream.

Your argument is ridiculous and you know it, the White Sox can't compete with the Dodger financially, and that extends to the minor leagues.

All three AL Central teams have lost more significant pieces for a longer amount of time than the Sox...

 

The Tigers are going to get the wild card after losing JD Martinez for half the season. Castellanos has been out now as well. They lost their CFers. Zimmermann. Etc.

 

The Royals were making a charge until they lost Lorenzo Cain this week for the second time this season. They've missed Davis, Cain, Gordon, Moustakas, etc., for long stretches of this season.
