On a day when the Orioles surpass the Sox record, it's easy to overlook the many positives:

1. Jose got better as the game went longer, and again demonstrated the ability to pitch inning after inning. He would look good on the Mets.

2. 2 home runs for Dye. Any of those NL West teams could use him.

3. Uribe flawless in the field and picked up a hit. Boston needs a SS.

4. Cintron demonstrated his value as a pinch-hitter. He would look good in a Cubs uniform.

5. Flawless inning from Bukvich. The Cubs or Mets could use an arm like his.

6. Torrero patrolled CF like a pro.

I think ultimately Dye improved his trade value. I'm not so sure the Mets are looking for a guy to just eat up innings while giving up ten hits and five earned runs. It could very well be he'd do well in the NL but if I'm a scout I'm not exactly clammoring over this guy. I think the most we could get for Jose from the Mets right now is a one time use of Mr. Met at the White Sox next Family Function.

1. I can't believe Konerko popped up that hanging breaking ball from Baez in the seventh. Paul has been our best bat lately, and he got a great one to hit. He should have tied the game right there.

2. Contreras did little to increase his trade value. His next scheduled start is in Boston. I can't imagine him shutting the Red Sox down with the stuff he's featuring. Dump him now.

3. Hopefully, Dye keeps it rolling for another week or two, maximizing his trade value.

4. I'm sick of getting my brains beat in by horse**** Corey Patterson. Four HRs all year, three against us.

5. We make Chris Ray look like the second coming of Dennis Eckersley.

The only thing that could help us is a time machine to send us to the first week in October. Then, the season would be over, and we wouldn't have to live this nightmare anymore.

Only saw a few innings of today's extravaganza because we were busy making preparations to attend tomorrow's life and death struggle against the Tribe. You can't imagine how I'm looking forward to it -- the spectacle of Cleveland fans giving Ozzie the choke sign all night (we're sitting behind the Sox dugout), the unbearable tension of waiting to see whether it's the bats or the bullpen that will let us down . . .

Lip - You are a poster of much common sense, so I have a question for you.

How much do you think the obvious woes are due to injury? Forget the fact that we obviously went into the year with far too thin a roster (I don't think anybody could debate that), but how much difference do you think would have been made with a healthy Erstadt and a healthy Posednik and a healthy Crede? They've basically lost two outfielders and a third baseman for the bulk of the year. Again, I totally realize there was almost no back-up contingency for these guys going down (and you had to figure that Crede and Posednik would spend some time on the DL when the year started).

I know that they aren't healthy - and Posednik rarely is - but I honestly think they were starting to hit their stride a little bit before the first series against the Cubs, and then the bottom fell out. I'm not sure if this team needs a major rebuilding or if they simply need to get healthy (bullpen aside).

I'd like to get your take.

Right Sox fans?:

The Sox currently stand at 8,142 losses and would have to have more than 11 winless seasons in a row to reach 10,000 losses. At the franchise average winning percentage of .506 and assuming 162 game seasons, the Sox won't be looking at the 10,000 loss milestone until 2030. All the original NL teams will hit 10,000 losses before any AL team does. The first AL team to reach 10,000 losses will probably be the Orioles but even they are probably 15 years out from doing so.

The Braves are next closest to 10,000 losses with a total of 9,681. They are probably a good four or five years away from hitting the mark.

As for the 10,000 win plateau, only the Giants have accomplished that feat. The Cubs will be the next team to do so sometime next season.

It was the early 1900s that did them in. They had nine 90-loss seasons IN A ROW from 1904-1912. There were SIX 100-loss seasons in that stretch including four in a row from 1909-1912. From 1903-1913, they didn't even crack .500.

Those are some [histrotically] awful numbers for a franchise...

... I remember the 80s when the Braves were the NL punching bag year after year, despite great offensive players like Dale Murphy & Bob Horner. They were terrible, like Kansas City & the DRays are to the AL right now.
