This was the only positive news that came out of an otherwise miserable weekend of White Sox baseball. I was stunned to see Sale get pounded by the Indians yesterday.

I am also in the camp of those that does not want to see the Sox lose 100 games.

Yeah, Robin ain't going anywhere.

If it makes you feel better, the Sox wouldn't have been a good team this year even without Robin and I don't think having Ventura as the manager of this team is going to make or break them in 2014 either. This team has such a long way to go to become a playoff contender again that I really don't see JR and KW doing anything to oust their good soldier Ventura.

Hire someone like Terry Francona? LOL - that's for teams that are serious about contending. My guess is that Kenny Williams knew the Sox were totally cooked for several years to come when it was time to replace Ozzie and they just went with someone who is a classy fan favorite who would take his lumps as the losses piled up without lashing out at the media, the fans, and a very untalented crop of players.

Any word on how the logistics of the ticket exchange works? Just go to the Box Office with yesterday's tix?

By the way, the Marlins seem to be on their way to losing most of the rest of their games too. So, the Sox aren't likely to catch them for the #2 pick despite their best efforts.

Houston 51-98
Miami 55-94
Sox 58-91
Cubs 63-86
Twins 64-84
Brewers 65-83
Mariners 66-83

There's still a shot to catch Miami, the race for no. 2 is on!

Once 2014 tickets go on sale, fans simply need to bring their ticket stub or mail it to the U.S. Cellular Field Ticket Office (333 W. 35th Street, Chicago, IL., 60616) where it will be redeemed for a best available outfield reserved or upper level seat to one of 12 games of the fan's choice. Those games include series against division rivals Minnesota (April 2-3), Cleveland (April 10-13), and Detroit (April 29-30), and the Tampa Bay Rays from the A.L. East (April 25-28).

I've been a fan since 1964, and have never attended as few games (only 1) as I did this year. I've usually averaged 10-15 games per year, including last year when my mother died on opening day (PLUS several road games each year). I pledge here and now that I will not attend another game until there is someone other than Robin Ventura managing this team.

Beckham has come crashing back down to earth after having a good 1st half. Post All-Star Game, he's hitting a whopping .198.

And he is one of two current position players (other is A. Garcia) that this team is building around. Danger here cherie.

Sums up my feelings about this organization, which is why the only money they got out of me was on opening day.

Why isn't he hitting cleanup? (I know this should be in teal, but with this organization maybe it's a fair question.)

Whether it's triple digits or not they will still end up in a very deserved last place:(

I keep telling myself that. Hope it's true, even though it completely ****s over Robin in the process. Which blows too.
