    Big Deal

    Post by Cream1953 on Tue Sep 17, 2013 7:59 am

    I basically shut this team down long ago and only watch a game every now and then...tired of wasting my time on this outfit. At any rate, I scanned the box score of last night's game this morning and thought...wow...how impressive. Big fucking deal. They can't score a run for weeks and then blow their load in one inning. How many times have we seen this happen over the past 3 or 4 years? The mark of a really bad team is when they go out and play a good game and instead of enjoying it or giving you hope for the future all it does is piss you off and make you wonder why this couldn't have been done on a more consistent basis. I can recall some pretty crummy White Sox teams from the past but this one might take the cake. That's saying something. I've never been so fed up with a White Sox team and those associated with it.

    They hit HOME RUNS last night.

    HOME RUN OR NOTHING OFFENSE.

    Defense a disaster all season.

    THEY SUCK.

    I just hope Reinsdorf has to pay Stadium rent to the State.

    Did anyone read the column in the Sun Times today about the disastrous defensive numbers and how badly the Sox D has hurt them?  Seeing them on paper compared to a good defensive team really was a staggering dose of reality.  I believe the D has cost the Sox, by sabermetric standards, 59 runs surrendered more than the normal expectation.  I read it quickly, so I may be erring in my comprehension of the points it made.  I believe there are some teams that are 50+ runs on the other side of the norm....or 100 runs better on defense than the Sox.  That's fucking staggering.

    In fairness to my departed sparring partner, FRAAAAZAH, the OFFENSE SUCKS, TOO!!!

    But Pitching and DEFENSE kind of matter.

    When they all go out after the ballgames, I hope the pitchers at least make the defense pay for their beers.

    If you need sabermetrics to figure out that this horrible defense is costing them runs...affraid

    True.  I knew it was bad.  It was just that seeing these numbers really painted a more concise picture of the level of BAD they have achieved.

    It's like the old joke...What do the White Sox and Michael Jackson have in common? They wear a glove on one hand for no apparent reason.

    JR gives that information less than 5 seconds of thought.  If he can make money by emulating the Astros model he'd be just as happy as he was following 2005.  Win at all costs owners are far and few between, especially among the Washington Generals teams.  Mark Cuban comes to mind.  Anyone else?
