Mike Pelfrey allowed six runs on eight hits in 5.2 innings. The White Sox dropped their sixth straight after a 6-3 loss in Boston.

The Chicago White Sox are glad to leave Boston. Mike Pelfrey continued to struggle allowing six runs on eight hits in a 6-3 lost to the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. Pelfrey is now 3-10 with a 5.31 ERA. In fact, the right hander hasn’t had an ERA under 4.00 since 2012 when he had a 2.29 ERA in three games with the New York Mets.

Pitching continues to haunt the White Sox during their six-game slide. Rick Hahn gutted the pitching staff to add more promising youngsters to the mix. However, that puts the team at a disadvantage the rest of the season. They just don’t have any pitchers. Carlos Rodon is the most reliable starter they have and he’s been inconsistent but is showing progress. And there’s just no one left in the bullpen.

This team is going to be mostly bad for the rest of the season. They will probably lose 100 games. They will be bad next year too. It could be another 100-loss season. But by 2019 they could hopefully be contenders. They may not contend for the World Series but they should be a much improved team. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. It just can’t come soon enough.

The important thing is for once the organization has direction. It’s strange to think a team this bad would garner as much interest as it does but they really do.

This team is actually kind of fun to watch. They lose a lot of games but they never seem to quit. And they have a lot of young, exciting guys. With a lot more in the farm system. Give it time and we’ll be looking at a competitive team on the South Side. It’s never easy to watch a losing team but it shouldn’t last for long.
