I think I've made everyone here feel just a little better about the 2013 White Sox
I still have nightmares of him being brought in to face Alex Rodriguez with the bases loaded.

In a down year like this one I'll take that over watching Andy Gonzalez, Luis Terrero and Danny Richar any day of the week.
Seriously, how does a big market franchise ever let a year like that happen, much less so soon after winning a World Series?

Reinsdorf and Hahn watching from the suite. I'm sure their presence is a motivating factor for Dunn.

Yes they did. Even the scrubs they brought in to replace the guys who got injured got injured.

edit: Also, the bullpen got dismantled and imploded simultaneously.

That was Kenny's bunch of young dudes who throw hard out experiment wasn't it? IIRC it led to the infamous, "greatest bullpen in league history" thread in early May or something. Shortly after that they fell off a cliff and just kept falling...

They did, but the plan to start the season was Jerry Owens and Darrin Erstad 1-2 no?

Yep. Sisco, Aardsma, Bukvich and MacDougal, among others.

I think Owens was one of the replacements, but I might be wrong.

That's right, I remember now, Ozzie initially planned to use Pods (or Erstad, I can't remember which) in CF, then when that didn't work, he went to Mack. And that led to Owens and Terrero.
