5. The White Sox will be more inspired this series … I hope

I believe Robin Ventura is really going to do something if this team doesn’t play with a little more inspiration, because if they don’t play with some hustle against the Athletics in the series, we might be seeing some different players in the lineup soon.

Can you really blame him?

Though I see the White Sox struggling in this upcoming series, I do believe they will play with a little more spark starting Monday night … at least I hope for their sake, because I think the grace period of Ventura being patient is about over.
