The previous four-game series with the Minnesota Twins was a major letdown for the Chicago White Sox, but the team proved they just aren’t that good right now. They have to regroup quickly with the Baltimore Orioles waiting for the next three games at Camden Yards.
If the White Sox pitch like they did against the Twins when they take on the Orioles in this upcoming series starting this evening, well all of us are in for more losing baseball.
Sure losing happens, but being swept by the Twins the past four games, showed the glaring weaknesses the White Sox have with most of their starting rotation.
Jose Quintana allowed just two runs in his Thursday night start against Minnesota, and on Sunday, John Danks had his first bad start in a month (six earned runs), but Hector Noesi and Andre Rienzo continued to put together forgettable seasons over the weekend. I think Rienzo would be better served in the bullpen.
If the White Sox get in another big deficit against the Orioles in the next three games, that probably means there will be more losing on the way.
This game on Monday will be the seventh straight game for the White Sox, the seventh of 16 straight games of baseball.
