The Sox on the other hand are bottom dwellers. They had their shot to bulk up their record on the teams in the AL that cannot even manage a 400 or better winning record. Now the Sox are stuck playing out the season against teams that are actually at least in the running for the 3 wild card spots.......with......the expected results it would appear.

    So now I am stuck with recognizing that my own projection made at the start of this season of woe that the Sox would be a 500 team in a sea of crap was very likely........OPTIMISITIC.

    They have 6 games against Texas (10-17 in the last 27) and the White Sox (56-91)…

    Which they will likely be lucky to play 500 ball against while getting whacked silly by the likes of the O's, Rays and in these remaining Jaya games.

    The guy could throw a perfect game, and I still would not count on him for even 1 IP, next year.
