Olt/Crede and Shuck/Quentin bringing back some memories of 2008 with jersey numbers at least...

 

We're already 25% of the way to the Royals' stretch of no playoffs for 28 years. Yay!

Want to bet we won't make it that far?

LaRoche, Saladino, Sanchez and Olt in the same infield will sell about as well for Brooks Boyer as Wil Cordero, Steve Sax, Royce Clayton and Chris Snopek playing together.

 

Akexei will be back.

Better trade our most underrated asset for an absolute haul to fill many holes on a terrible roster.

 

Fixed it for ya.

I'm probably the only one who thinks Anderson will be given a shot at winning the SS battle in ST if Alexei doesn't return (which I think he will).

 

I'm hoping they pick up Alexei's option. They can't go into the winter with question marks at 3/4 of the infield.

yes they can and they absolutely should, but they won't and it'll probably work as well as it did this year.

I'm starting to have my doubts that Sale or Abreu will ever see the playoffs in a Sox jersey.

 

Partly because that would require a new manager...and that might not happen for another 2-3 seasons at the rate they're going.

And that's a full decade if not for Hahn's kid guessing right on the coin flip...because the Twins would have clobbered the Sox in the MetroDoom in 2008.

Avi strikes out again on a high fastball. What else is new?

Whoever Tweeted that to Avi ... that's pretty funny cause you know he thought of that offensive tweet when he got owned on that last high fastball.

True. Sox had no chance in the Dome.

He needs to get better, plain and simple. He's playing like a scrub right now and that won't cut it for next year.

Offensive in the sense the White Sox can never check the scouting box of finding a single hitter capable of turning around a fastball other than Jose Abreu?

Woof. As a die hard, just like everybody else who is in here right now, that is badddddd. My overall excitement for next year is about as low as it can be too.

I don't even know how you fix it.. In years past I had ideas. This year? I don't have any.

If you already bought season tickets, you can always find people who will take freebies.
