Default The Race is On: Your 2013 White Sox vs. 1970 White Sox

2013 White Sox 34-52 --
1970 White Sox 29-55 4.0 GB

July 8, 1970

White Sox beat Milwaukee and Al Downing 2-1, Tommy John with the complete game 5 hitter.

I'd take C.May, K. Berry, B. Melton, L. Aparicio, E. Herrmann over the current starters, 2013 team as the edge in starting pitching.

Ventura vs. Gutteridge? Toss Up.

Default To be the Worst Sox team ever .

With respect to TomBradley72 and his 2013 vs 1970 thread (which reminds me of various comparison pieces the Trib used to run in seasons of contention)I decided to point out this fact in a separate thread.

As terrible as the 1970 team was {Their only winning pitcher was 1-0) it wasn't the worst team in terms of winning percentage.

The 1970 team went 56-106 for a .346 percentage

The 1932 Sox went 49-102 for a .318 percentage

To post a worse percentage than 1932 over a full season, the Sox would have to go 51-111 for a .315 percentage.

You should reverse the standings. The 2013 team is 4 games behind the '72 team for the purposes of this thread.

I think there are fewer people here who remember the 1932 team.

28-48 to lose 100:

Det 5-14
Min 5-6
Cle 4-6
KC 4-6
NY 2-4
Bal 1-3
Bos 1-2
Hou 2-1
Tex 1-2
Phi 1-2
Atl 1-2
Tor 1-0

That's pretty generous too. Wouldn't be surprised if they don't win 60 games.

49 / 151 = .325 (.3245)

That 1932 team wasn't the worst either. Yikes!

We haven't even played Detroit yet, and our record is awful.

The Sox traded Berry and Aparicio after the 1970 season, I believe.
It's looking more and more like we're going to have to move some players we don't want to move like Santiago, Quintana, Reed, etc. if we want to remake this roster.

Post trading deadline + all those games with Detroit- they could really give the 1970 team a "run".

Imagine an OF of De Aza, Tekotte, Danks (post Rios)

You're overly pessimistic. Wise is already making his rehab starts, and will come to the rescue after the All Star Break.

But, just last week Hawk kept reminding everyone that the Sox still had 19 games with Detroit.
I had to laugh, did he really expect the sky to open and a ray come from the heavens go into the Sox dugout and turn **** into gold?

This is the worst Sox team I have seen ever in my life. Worse than the 1989 Sox.
