Why is LoMo still in the lineup nearly every day?

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

Remember when Kenny Williams declared that the White Sox were "all in"? 

 

I think we can safely say that we are all out!

Why Sano is not playing? Is he hurt?

Is Logan Forsythe destined to replace LoMo as the power guy in the line-up?

Bring up Austadillo!

LOFO at number 4.....wow. Imagine thinking that would happen for any team this year.....ever....

I remain hopeful on Buxton and Sano.....but I'd not bet the franchise on them.

To keep the other team from pitching around Garver, i think.

At least that is what he is doing today.

Does it increase his trade value?

We wouldn't have traded Dozier for anyone less than a clean up hitter, now would we?

Austin has poor numbers vs RHP. He'll start Saturday Sunday

Sano getting a break early tonight to prep to face lefties Sat/Sun

Sano’s absence from the lineup is extremely odd.

Forsythe 8 game hitting streak. PH in debut 0-1 hit ever game since. AVG raised 27 points with first inning hit.

I was hoping for some small indications that Santana was getting his velocity back, but I'm just not seeing it. I think Santana would have some trade value if he could consistently throw 90-91 instead of 88-89.

Still getting a kick out of the ads for Sheboygan Sausage giveaway, to hang out in Sept with Byron Buxton.

Fortunately for Buxton, AAA season will be over so he can be back for the event.
