Such a shame to continue wasting quality starts...

We're not a good baseball team. Simple as that. I don't think we're this bad, but we are certainly not good.

4 games under with 15 out of the next 18 on the road, this isn't good.

I get we're not a great offensive team, but the defensive lapses are quite alarming.

When you think about it folks this was pretty much a typical Sox performance this season:

Three lousy runs...
Six lousy hits...
Two costly errors...
12 more strikeouts...

Frankly I was shocked the Sox actually got three runs off Price considering they ran out a triple A lineup.

It is what it is and probably won't get much better even if the injured guys make quick recoveries.

Talk about going from the frying pan and into the fire... Definitely a "character building" or "capitulating" next stretch.. We'll see.. Time to break out the Talismans...

Just saw this comment from Robin: "There are opportunities that guys need to take advantage of. If it doesn’t happen for us, there are other teams that are looking at them when they get opportunities.”

My impression is that Robin is preparing everyone for what could be (probably??) a fire sale come July.

Oh Heath also looks as bad as Septimo (and that's about as bad as you can get...)

I know Hahn said "let's wait and see" in regards to a firesale but you really have to wonder if we need to move now before things gets worse. Floyd's value is already diminished. What if Peavy or Rios gets hurt? We are lucky enough to have a few guys that other teams might want so I hope we are least testing the waters.

The offense is one big mess. Not really set up to score other than homeruns, and there is no flow to it at all.

Maybe these 15 road games coming up will somehow be a positive turning point going forward. All we can hope for.

Darvish might strike out 15+ on Tuesday

Floyd's value is zero right now, Konerko will get hot in June then the phone will start ringing. Rios and Peavy are the only movable pieces right now.

Yes, only insofar as if its a reliever it determines who will squander the next quality start.

After Jones pitched an easy seventh inning, he struggled with his control in the eighth and Robin left him in two batters too long. Thornton was ready in the pen but he left Jones in to face Joyce and Zobrist who got the big hit.
