I won't reveal his name to protect him from slings and arrows.
If we had last year's team from February (with AJ, Konerko not coming off a season he didn't look completely finished, Danks not injured), I'd feel a lot better now too. We're not as good as last year, and the young pieces (like Dayan) have not given reason to be optimistic.
Being optimistic for the sake of being optimistic is fool-hardy. That's exactly the kind of stuff that makes White Sox staffers look at our fan base and not feel like they're doing something wrong. This is a bad team as currently contstructed. You should be angry.
