    RICK HAHN quoted in both papers today saying the Sox are MIRED IN MEDIOCRITY.


    No more quick fix trades.


    No more RENT A PLAYER for some imagined Playoff charge!!!

    "Mired in mediocrity" is a good way to put it.  The Sox had so many problems to fix from last year (C, SS, 2b, 3b, DH, RF, LF plus 2 starting pitchers and the bullpen) that in the end it's no big surprise that the half-measures taken (Frazier, Lawry, Avila/Navarro, Jackson, Latos, Gonzalez, etc) didn't move the needle much.   Particularly when Abreu, who was still somewhat above average last year has sunk to somewhat below average. Yeah, it appeared this was the "new look Sox" for the first 6 weeks but reality set in by mid-May.
    Realistically with a total teardown this team won't compete for another 3-4 years, just like it took Epstein.   And yes, that's how long this franchise will continue to play 2nd fiddle to the Cubs.

    It would take some improvement to be "mired in mediocrity".  It gives them something to aim for.

    Yep, they were forced to play other teams.  Otherwise, they could have went undefeated.

    You guys seem to forget the UMPIRES have been deliberately fucking the Sox over for years.  Look at all the Pennants that should have been won during the Hawk announcing era!!

    Is Kenny finally leaving????  No July WE ARE NOT THAT BAD AND ARE GOING FOR IT rant this year.  Plus, Hahn saying he will trade anybody now.
    Hahn admits the team is a pile of crap.
    Williams NEVER did that.

    Frankie Montas is working his way back from an injury but he's got some real potential, and Trayce Thompson turned out better than expected this year although his longterm future is basically as a 4th OFer.

    Funny how a AAAA player on an AL team can go to the NL and be "better than expected" and a star from the NL can go to an AL team and barely hit above the Mendoza line...wonder why??

    RIGHT NOW FRAZIER IN TIED FOR 2ND ON THE TEAM WITH A 768 OPS.

    YEAH, THE 210 AVERAGE IS TOUGH TO SWALLOW, BUT ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, HE IS DEFINITELY BETTER THAN AN INJURED ARM AND A 4TH OF TYPE.

    FRAZIER IS TH LEAST OF THE WHITE SOX PROBLEMS

    Frazier also solidified 3B defensively.  And it seems that he gets a lot of clutch hits and homers.  He may be the "best .210 hitter is baseball"... clown

    Thompson actually hit better in the AL with the Sox (.295) than with the Dodgers (.225) but his power is what has been better than expected with LA (13 HR's in 260 PA's).  Been the opposite for Frazier.  He's hit for better power in the AL ( 28 HR's in 400 PA's   v. 35 HR in 620 PA's in the NL)  but his average has obviously  been worse. 
    I agree that AL is tougher, but not not so dramatic than it diminishes a guy's value tremendously. Frazier had 4.0 WAR last year and is on pace for 3.2 this year, which seems about right in accounting for the differences between leagues.
