The 1910 Chicago White Sox hold the record for the lowest BA of an AL team in one season.....@ .212

The 1906 Chicago White Sox hold the record for the lowest BA of an AL Pennant winner @ .228

The 2010 Chicago White Sox, @ .220 currently have the lowest BA in MLB....

.008 from either of those records (provided they win the AL Pennant)

GO GREG WALKER!!

Those were different times.

The 1908 White Sox hit only three home runs. That was the dead ball era, sure, but no team has ever hit so few home runs in a season. The league's per-team average that year was fractionally more than 14. Eliminate the White Sox, and the average was over 16.

One home run was hit by a pitcher. Another was hit by the manager.

Their .224 batting average would have been the worst in the league if the A's hadn't hit .223.

In the important 1908 stat, the third-place White Sox led the American League in attendance, although they drew about 19,000 fans less than the Cubs, who would hit 19 home runs and win their second straight World Series that year and appeared to be established as a permanent dynasty.

So every team that employs a pitcher in their lineup has a better BA than the Sox. Embarrassing. I know there's a lot of sacrifices in the NL, and they don't count against the average, but come on. Let's pass at least one NL team soon.

That was the 1906 White Sox who beat the mighty Cubs in the World Series.

Complain about the offense this year, but this White Sox team has a winning record if the starting pitching shows up.

And that was supposed to be the least of our worries.....

Lets Hope the Royals bats stay in the rack this series... They've been just as impotent with the lumber and choking out some quality starts by their Powder Blue pitchers..
