Can't argue with anything there, though I'm sure someone here will.

He spelled Buehrle's name wrong multiple times. There were some Buerhles and even a Buerle, but no Buehrle. :dunno:

That he would be a she. That's what's wrong with the article.

Too bad... Deadspin's previews are usually pretty good, but that wasn't a great read. Was it supposed to be funny? Overly silly?

:dunno:

The Buehrle spelling and the "baseball is 80% pitching" B.S turned me off. Is pitching important? Yes. But it doesn't make up 80% of the game.

:rolleyes:

I love Deadspin, but that was not funny, entertaining, insightful or informative.

It read like a long preview from a 14 year-old kid. There were a lot of generalities, terrible organization and nothing that resembled an in-depth preview at all.

Summation: The offense was bad last year. Pitching is important. We need Contreras to be better. We got two new guys in the bullpen. And then some stuff about people in love with Konerko and Rowand.

zulkey says "winning is 80% pitching" I think this % is high.

I read this earlier and I was kind of just shocked with how terrible it was.

Lady: "Hey pops, whatcha think about them White Sox?"...

Dad: "Mark Buehrle, Mark Buehrle, Big Truckssss, Pitching wins baseball good"

Lady: "Got anything else?"

Dad: "Ask yer Uncle".

Uncs (played by Frater): "were gonna trade PK for Figgins and Santana".


Note to Deadspin: Next time you are going to have someone write a preview on a team, make sure they watched at least one game after June of last season. Also, it would be nice if they knew who Danny Richar is.

A sexist could have a field day with this one... it is too bad. Women don't get nearly enough chances to cover sports; it is a shame to see this writer fit the stereotype.
