Golden:

To answer your question:

No on all points with Robin. Not going to happen. Period.

Regarding player movement...give it a month, you'll see guys shipped out.

Same ****, different spin...game after game after game. He'll be saying the same stuff probably on September 20th.

I think at this point the Sox are trying to wipe the same permanent stain.

Only the pitching distinguishes this team from that horror. But they were both clowns on the field and on the basepaths. We have players who will give Syd O'Brien a run for his money.

Both of those guys in their prime would be the best player on this team hands down. You could bat those guys three-four in this lineup.

edit: forgot about Rios. Just shows how bad the team is, I can't even remember the one decent player. they'd probably go 4-5 in this lineup.

If trades are not coming, I would think we might see a new manager soon. Now that I have giving this more thought, the Royals just changed their hitting coach. Maybe the White Sox will come up with a new hitting coach. I don't think it would do any good if they replaced Ventura or any of his coaches. This team simply can't hit. There are too many outs in this lineup.
No point in firing Robin. He'll walk after the season, and we can get a manager with actual coaching experience. Not that I blame Robin for this abomination.

Ventura continues to log major innings on our young starters, leaving sale and Santiago out there for 110+ innings. Ridiculous for this team. Hahn needs to tell him to stop it.
