The bad karma of DeAza should have been left in the clubhouse last year. I don't know how you bunt back to the pitcher to end the game.

Yep - just beyond belief.

What, 1 hit after the 3rd inning? Stymied by that Twinkie pen.

It is 7/9ths of a lineup that lost 99 games last year. April was unsustainable and there were only 0.500 in April.

Disgusting getting swept by Minny. The way Danks has pitched lately I thought we could avoid the sweep, wishful thinking.

Still so many holes on this team, we only have one outfielder, hopefully Garcia makes a good recovery from his surgery. I like Gillaspie but he has yet to hit a homer, we need 2 more starters, some better relief pitchers and a catcher. Hahn still has a lot of work ahead of him.

Jared Burton and his 5.64 ERA close out the game. That's a fitting exclamation point to a series characterized by Sox hitters making bad pitchers look good.

I know De Aza is the whipping boy around here, but Viciedo and Flowers are two guys the Sox need to move on from. I was glad to see Viciedo's ass on the bench to start the game today, but then he appeared in the ninth inning to swing at bad pitches and give away an at-bat like usual.

Garcia's injury was huge, and we're seeing the effects of that loss more and more as the season progresses. It's been a long time since the Sox were this bad at the corner outfield spots. Sierra is no answer either, unless the question is, "Who is going to suck as the White Sox fourth outfielder for the rest of 2014?"

It was huge, but he'll be back and hopefully get better. I'm very happy we didn't wait until this year to move Peavy, with his value at basically zilch. We should have moved De Aza last year too though.
Sierra/Danks/Wise - pick your poison - all bad 4th outfielders.

Yes with 6 of the 7 hitting above their heads early and other being a real knucklehead. Losing streaks were just a matter of time.

Yeah, for all the bad defense and baserunner blunders De Aza has had, last year he set some career highs hitting-wise. Might have had some value then as a fourth outfielder to a contender. Now? No chance. He'll likely play out the rest of the year with the Sox and be let go at the end of the season. If not for the lack of outfield depth in the organization, he'd be a DFA candidate.

Viciedo was given a second chance to play every day as a result of Garcia's injury, and he is blowing it -- one big swing and a miss at a time.

Done with DeAza. Not all on him, not at all, but he's not the answer. Well beyond the time to move him. Danks isn't the answer either but he'll give the Sox nearly the same offense and better defense.

Glad I boycotted the game today.

I think the Sox had the lead in all 4 games. The Twins are probably having a good time laughing at and mocking the Sox. Embarrassing.

I notice that the Sox pitching staff leads the majors in walks by a large margin; also 4th to last in strikeouts.

Nauseating getting swept by the Twinks...the sooner I put this Totally Disgusted and Biased Game Report to bed, the sooner I can forget it. I'll update it with the Pick to Click later.

John Danks is awful. Everything else has pretty much been covered.
