Chicago White Sox Are In A Losing Free Fall
Chicago White Sox lose 3 in a row to the Houston Astros.
First of all thankfully this route of the Sox was about 8 years too late. If you recall the White Sox swept the Astros in the World Series in 2005. However Houston has one more to go, can they make in 4 in a row?
This season has been at times a tad bright for the Sox. They had a nice win streak in mid may that saw them scrape back to 4 games behind the division leaders. The bats were heating up a bit anyways. 10 wins in 14 games gave me a slight bit of optimism.
Then the bottom fell out, BIG TIME!
In the next 18 games since that nice run the White Sox are 4-14. Highlighted by an 8 game losing streak and a sweep by the Juggernaught Chicago Cubs.
That’s right the Astros team that under spent the Sox by 100 million dollars (124 million to 24 million) just beat them 3 in a row.
Houston has the worst record in the American League, and the Cubs are tied for last in the National League Central.
Coming soon an article by me talking about blowing it up and starting over. Rick Hahn the Sox GM was dealt a cruddy hand and he has no choice but to play it.
Raise your hand if you know who Dallas Keuchel is, my hand is down. He was the latest pitcher to own the White Sox. Yesterday for Houston he went 6 1/3, 4 hits, 2 earned, 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. Closer Jose Veras tried really hard to give the game away but after giving up 2 earned he got Alexei Ramirez to ground out to end the game.
So there you have it White Sox fans, dead last in the division, swept by the Cubs, owned by the Astros and a $124 million dollar payroll. With little to look forward to this year it’s tough to find any reason to watch the games right now unless Chris Sale is pitching.
