This past weekend was one of the worst of the season for the Chicago White Sox, and it brought back memories of what happened last year where the White Sox were one of the worst teams in all of baseball.
Looking back at this weekend’s series against the Kansas City Royals what stands out the most is the White Sox had just six total RBIs and 10 walks in the three games combined.
Take away those three players … the rest of the White Sox players went 12-for-73 including Tyler Flowers going 0-for-7 in two combined starts, and Dayan Viciedo going 2-for-13, including an 0-for-5 day in Sunday’s loss.
Of those 10 aforementioned walks, four were forced by Eaton, with three of those on Friday, a game where he was 2-for-2 with three walks.
Jose Abreu played all three games, finishing 3-for-11, with games of 1-for-4, 0-for-3 and a 2-for-4 game, Sunday.
There were others who did or didn’t produce, but the players who are mentioned above are the ones who stand out the most.
Maybe the overall play offensively will improve this week, but what happened this past weekend can’t continue to happen if they want to be contenders in the AL Central or for one of the two Wild Card spots.
Something will eventually have to change.
