... that the Sox could set an all-time loss record this year, but even if they go 0 for the rest of the season they can still lose only 105 games, one less than in 1970. This could still turn out to be one of their all-time stinkers because they play mostly winning teams in September:

1931: 56-97
1932: 49-102
1934: 53-99
1948: 51-101
1970: 56-106

Life will go on. Wait till next year.

I witnessed 1970 but this year is worse because we have the talent. Very depressed about this year but they cant take 05 away from us. Its like we are in The Twilight Zone going from best to worst in 22 months.

Its like we are in The Twilight Zone going from best to worst in 22 months.You're so right on. This year's play is a mind set. With injuries and some over-rated talent, this team still should compete to be .500. The Sox don't simply just suck. There is an internal problem I hope they solve. But nothing, nobody, no where can take away 2005.

Yes, I agree. This team has more talent than its record indicates; that is what's so infuriating about this season.

As a veteran of these types of seasons.... it ain't that bad. Take solace that the team is not that far away. I'm not just trying to be polite. If my team needed wins to make the playoffs I'd rather have them play Cleveland, KC, and MN than the Sox. With Buehrle and Garland it's a nice 1/2 punch.

If by Garland, you mean Vazquez, then yes. Garland has been terrible in the second half.

In terms of winning percentage, 1932 was the worst in White Sox history. However, the Red Sox lost 111 that year.

My dad says he's never seen a team take a tumble like the Sox had. I brought the Marlins after their '97 championship, but he listed the circumstances for that. Seriously, has anyone seen a team like this go from first to worst in such a hurry?

I sort of remembered the Yankees back in the mid 1960s having a meltdown like the Sox are having, so I looked it up and sure enough in 64 the Yanks had 99 wins(lost WS), 77 wins in 1965 and 70 wins in 1966. I was stationed near NYC and watched a lot of Yankee games and actually felt sorry for Mickey Mantle hobbling around with a really bad team. Bottom line; a meltdown like the Sox are having can happen to any team even the Yankees. Lets hope this is only for 1 year.

The Sox have turned into the Washington Generals.:redface:

I expect them to lose every day and they do. :whiner:
They should be so good. Even the Generals won once in awhile.
