They can't hit. They can't field. They can't run the bases. If the bullpen was a real fire brigade, the bodycount would be astronomical.

Men are reluctant to mention them by name. Mothers shield their children's eyes when they walk by. Local and national sports media piddle on the franchise and their fans...oh wait, that was happening BEFORE this season!

Yes, our 2007 White Sox are bad...really bad. Which one of the words in the poll capture the atrocity this season has been? Have a word of your own? By all means, please share while we wait for the fire sale to begin.

I will second "embarrassing" and add "nauseating" and, well, just heartbreaking.

It would be funny if it was all kids or some ancient All-Stars signed to have an impact on the gate and the payroll was $50 million. A payroll over $100 million (4th highest) and established vetrans hitting 30-40 points below their career averages is not funny.

But I still love the White Sox. And I will always hope against hope.

I cannot recall a worse White Sox team in my lifetime. 1989 at least showed signs of life. 2002 wasn't THIS bad. This is just...oh my, it's awful.

Sorry all mighty one. I should have figured you would be the one to make a comment. Obviously I don't think it is ha ha comedy funny. I will just retract even saying it instead of explaining.

Embarrassing is probably the best word out there. Pathetic is also a solid choice.

I dont know how old you are but we have had worse teams. 68,69,70.75,76,late 80s. What makes this tough is that 2 years ago we were World Champs and its seems impossible to be this bad. 1968 was very hard to take because the Sox had 17 straight winning seasons and for me personally because I had never seen a losing season on the south side.

So PAINFUL to watch I have to turn away sometimes.

A feeling of HOPELESSNESS. Anyone can beat us at any time.

I didn't even go to Sunday's game because I had no hope we could win and didn't want to be around drunk, slaphappy flub fans sporting pathetic smirks.

You must be very young. Or maybe I'm just old. I watched from what used to be my season ticket seats at Old Comiskey as the 1970 White Sox lost 106 games. If the 2007 sox continue at thier current clip, they'll lose 96. That's bad, but not as bad as 1970.

Stages:

1. Angry
2. Pissed
3. Apathy

Close to #3 now... Funny how you can go from so much emotion to not even giving a damn really... Knowing this team will prolly not even sniff the playoffs is upsetting, but its to the point now you just want to see the trades and play the kids to see how they do.... Not gonna get excited about them playing knowing what could have/should have been but....

APPALLED! :o: How can they consistenly be this bad????

HELPLESS!! :(: I've been praying, wishing and hoping that the Sox come out of this death spiral and go on a winning streak but it hasn't done any good.

IRRITATED!!! :mad: It's like wearing rawhide underwear everyday.

It's a dog-eat-dog world out there, and the Sox are wearing milkbone underwear.

I voted clueless because that is how the team(sans the rotation and Bobby) looks out on the field. I wonder if the bullpen knows what a strike is sometimes, and that you're supposed to throw them to be successful in the majors. I have also never seen a worse baserunning team. I'd compare some of the guys to a little leaguer who is standing at first after the ball has already been picked up by the outfielder and the kid who hit the ball is yelling at the kid standing at first to run. I also voted disgusting because embarassing is not on the poll. But that is what this team is. This team is the biggest waste of talent since the NY Knicks. Before I've never seen a team have so much talent and have so few wins. I'd compare the 2007 Sox to the 05-06 Knicks. However, Injuries play a HUGE part in the offense sucking, but it wouldn't be enough to overcome the pathetic bullpen. With full offense and the sucky bullpen I think we'd be a slightly above .500 team. Without the offense we're going down like the Titanic or the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.

I'd compare some of the guys to a little leaguer...As soon as someone breaks out the Little League comparisons when talking about Major League players, I tune out. It ranks right up there with the "I could do better..." posts.

Agreed.

It feels like getting a date with a really hot girl, taking her out somewhere nice, slow dancing with her, and then blowing a huge fart that stinks up the dance floor and sends everyone, including your girlfriend, home angry. Sure it's funny, but it's gross, a waste of time, embarrassing, shameful, pathetic, and frustrating.

I don't ever pack it in until elimination. Some older fans reminded us of some VERY bad seasons that I endured. I voted disappointing because I expected WAY more from this group. Still, I'll let it play out. I have before.
