    Comparison to the Bears

    For some reason, this White Sox team this year as opposed to last year draws quite a resemblance to the Bears of this year as opposed to last year. Think about it...The White Sox offense last year was abysmal, not saying the Bears offense was quite as bad but we had our stinkers of games. The only reason why we were in games last year was both the pitching for the Sox and the defense of our beloved Bears. This year the roles seem reversed. The Sox are now the leagues highest scoring, average, on-base, etc. team and the Bears were top-5 in about every offensive category. Now all of a sudden we can't pitch to save their lives just like the Bears couldn't stop the run or open-field tackle to save their lives. I've never seen so many walks issued in my entire life..we could easily be 8-5 or 9-4 if we just had a mediocre pitching staff. Just like the Bears could have cake-walked to the postseason if we just had a mediocre defense. Just my 2 cents as a disgruntled Sox/Bears fan.

    So, the Tigers are going to win the division even though Miguel Cabrera misses half the season?

    I definitely see the similarities. We 100% need to take a close to MLB level starting pitcher in the first round of the draft. Don't want to hear any talk about high school players that won't be ready for 3 years. We need good right hander who can step in and make the rotation next year.

    Agreed. I wanted a bat but now seeing our teams new make up both in minors and pro level.....we need a college sp that can come in ASAP.

    We need to make a move to shore up the bullpen...that's for damn sure...I watched that game against the Red Sox the other night and what an abysmal performance...FIFTEEN WALKS! FIFTEEEN!????

    Just pathetic...It really makes me wonder why traded Addison Reed for Matt Davidson...that move to me was a real head scratcher...

    Um did you think the Sox were going to be good this year? Even if they had never made the Reed/Davidson trade.

    Because they weren't, there is no reason to have a closer if you are not going to be in many games to begin with. Also the Sox farm system has a lot of good young arms that will soon be ready for the majors.

    If you're a young team not contending you do that trade 10/10 times.

    because daviodson will be an everyday player ,and probably end up being better/more valuable than reed.

    IF the offense continues to be top 5 by June and the bullpen still sucks, I really think we should consider being buyers at the trade deadline. We need two more arms for the bullpen at least, maybe we can get one of them from our farm system?

    this month is basically our make or break for the season..but honestly i dont see us being buyers by any stretch of the imagination and realistically..i see Alexei being the guy to get traded..if we can get back some relief help and maybe a right-handed starter for him, that would be fantastic. which would then turn the left side of the infield to Davidson/Semien for 2015.
