Chicago White Sox Morning BP: Returning Home


The Chicago White Sox return home after losing five straight on the road and now host the Pittsburgh Pirates for two games, following losing two straight to the same Pirates at PNC Park to begin the week.

In their past two games, the White Sox have scored zero runs and tallied just six hits, including four hits on Tuesday in a 3-0 loss. The past two games, the White Sox have been outscored, 14-0.

The question I have is will the front office ever shake things up? That could mean a change with coaches or manager, or even start making the players be held accountable for their lackluster play as of late, especially their road play in 2015 as the Southsiders are 12-23 away from U.S. Cellular Field.

Staying pat isn’t working and won’t work as the front office waits out this storm that is the first 63 games of the season as the team is 28-35 headed into Wednesday’s game.

With the White Sox now in the comforts of their own ballpark, maybe they will improve their play as they are 16-12 at home, even though they’ve been outscored 103-97 at The Cell.

In trying to snap this losing skid of five games the White Sox are sending John Danks (3-6, 5.29) vs. Jeff Locke (3-3, 4.90). Danks in his past three starts is 1-2 with nine earned runs, including four earned on eight hits in his last start on June 12 at Tampa Bay against the Rays.

Thus far in ’15, Danks has pitched 68 innings and struck out just 49 batters.

Tonight’s game will be interesting, for sure.
