We already have our own stats thread, so here's one that's a little more simple.

Just further evidence that we not only suck, but are the whipping boys of MLB. No backbone on this team whatsoever.

There are more than enough stats that can draw up this train wreck. The bullpen and batting average are the ones that stand out the most.

There is a nice WSI mention there for the poll. Hopefully the Adam Dunn numbers follow what they did last year and his bat helps us rebound and work our way back to .500.

They will have to play .600 ball to win the division (80-50). Doable, but only IF they get their heads out of their asses very soon.

More than one, but lots of unhappy facts there.

Peter Gammons was on M & H this morning, and he's truly dumbfounded with the Sox' performance. He stated all the GM's in the Central feel the Sox will snap out of it, but they're hitting .202 in the last 15 games. He said he's never seen anything like it from an "on paper" power lineup.

They are actually hitting .202 in their last 20 games and .204 in their last 21.

Words cannot express how much I loathe the phrase, "but they look great on paper!" Check the box score on the newspaper, the numbers leave little to interpret. It has been a dismal start.

Rios seems to be getting out of his slump. Now it is time for Dunn to follow.

Hopefully, this will be our worst stretch of the year and we rebound. Just need to cut a few games off the lead each month. Still plenty of time left.

Last year, we were 9.5 games out on June 9th and by July 9th I believe that we were in first or tied for first.

And then we promptly faded when we went back to playing the AL.

Red Head:

I assume eventually they will break out of this. However it doesn't look like they are going to have any kind of a chance at the postseason.

In years like this I especially go back to my "bottom line"... at least have a winning season. 82 wins means while the season would still be an extreme disappointment and would be one of the biggest downers in franchise history, at least they would have won more than they lost. That's something (not very much but something...)

The better question to me is, can they even do that?
