Nah, every season it's just the Sox who can't hit in April and then turn it around.

I hate that April refrain.

I suspect this year will be different.

The only respectable thing Dunn can do is retire.

I was surprised to learn that the 2012 Sox, like the 2013 Sox, started the season 13-17.

Maybe, this team can find its stride, too. I sure hope so.

You may be right....
When you say early 60s, the 60 team hit .275 as a team, thats good but as the decade went on the hitting went downhill but the pitching was fantastic as we won over 90 games 3 years in a row in 63, 64 and 65. As for 67 and 68 the hitting was horrible but the pitchers dominated the game in those years and MLB to increase hitting lowered the height of the mound in 1969. Sox hitting picked up in 69 with Melton and May helping the offense, Carlos might have been ROY if he hadn't lost part of his thumb while on National Guard duty in August. They batted .225 in 1967 and .228 in 1968 and .247 in 69. Because it was a pitchers game in 67 and 68 I will stand by my original statement that so far the 2013 White Sox are the worst hitting team since I started following them in 1953.

The 2010 season also had a bad start ( 8 games under .500 on May 20th) but got hot as a pistol in June and July and was 14 games over by August. I don't think that's going to happen this year.

It wasn't exactly bashing the coaches directly, it had more to do with praising the Padre coaches for teaching him things he never learned when he was with the White Sox.
While perusing older threads, questions need to be asked.

Everyone would want Sale, and he's the guy we can least afford to deal.
We aren't going to get a ML ready young hitter. We are going to get prospects. And I'd prefer younger ones, as when we get AAA players for our players, we usually get he counterfeit types, on their way down.
But Peavy and Rios should yield a couple of quality prospects. Especially Peavy - he'd be a hell of a playoff starter for some team. Don't sell him cheap, by any means. And any of the 3 veteran relievers - Crain, Linstrom, Thornton (who has been effective for years) will bring something back, especially if we hold out and really bargain and negotiate. No giveaways to "friendly" teams anymore.

The emergence of Santiago as a legitimate ML starter, pitching top 1/2 of the rotation quality, really helps our pitching depth.
