Way to send the home crowd into the offseason, guys...

The best we can hope for is a Game 163; it is now impossible to win the division outright.

Didn't get a single hit after the 4th inning.
Well, after the FAs we won't sign, there really isn't a corpus left in this bunch that can be expected to contend. I guess we'll be breaking it down. Hope we do it judiciously.

The biggest problem that is facing this franchise is that they are content to settle for mediocrity. And the reason they draw so poorly is that while the organization is content with mediocrity they continue to charge fans for a premier product. It is a simple as that and until that changes the problems this organization faces won't. And I see no reason to believe that mindset will change as long as the current ownership is in charge.

Dunn with 3 more Ks. 2 years is enough of this guy.

It's 3 too many and I am ever so tired of seeing him. I'll take any and all rips that may come my way.

Watching the White Sox is like observing a large wounded game animal, as it slows after the initial run, to a limping gait and staggers deliberately on to the unavoidable end ...

At least that baby in the commercial will have seen a September collapse.

Huh? I disagree with all of this. Unless you mean to suggest that if the organization would price their product appropriately all would be well. Or if they would spend the kind of money they are spending on Dunn, Rios, and Peavy all would be well? Nobody is content with mediocrity. They (KW) just don't know how to do any better.

After Rios, Konerko, De Aza, A.J. and Ramirez, the rest of the roster (10 players each with over 40 AB) hit .227

We need at least two more good hitters in the lineup next season, and there's no guarantee A.J. will be back either.

All the Sox need to do is end the season with a little four game winning streak!

Really glad I chose to stay home and save my money the last two days. It's really sad watching them limp to the end of this season like this.

I'm on your side SI.
I don't ever want to see a .204 hitter with 208 Ks batting 3rd again.
