Everything that can go wrong for the 2022 Chicago White Sox does go wrong. To be honest, it is surprising that they are even somewhat close to a playoff spot. However, their chances continue to dwindle with each passing day.
On Friday night, the White Sox came home to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks. It is a team that they don’t play against very often so this was a chance for Chicago fans to check out Arizona in an American League stadium.
It was Elvis night at Guaranteed Rate Field and the White Sox honored him by letting the Diamondbacks dominate the game. They won the game by a final score of 7-2. Johnny Cueto was on the mound and had a very rare tough start.
He has only had two or three bad starts all season long so nobody is going to get mad at him for it but it did hurt the White Sox in this one.
The Chicago White Sox had a bad loss on Saturday night and are back at .500.
It feels worse because of where they are in the standings. If Cueto had a rare bad start and the White Sox had a 10-game lead in the division, it would be no big deal.
Once they went down because of one bad inning, you knew the game was over because the offense is so pathetic. You can’t count on them to make a one-run comeback on most nights let alone six or seven.
Now, the White Sox are back down to .500 and it is well deserved. It has proved to be a very flawed roster which is on the general manager. They are also poorly managed and have a pathetic offense which is on Tony La Russa and Frank Menechino.
Everyone who makes decisions for this team should be ashamed of themselves and needs to be held accountable. Nobody seems to want to make an adjustment either which makes it even more frustrating to watch.
The White Sox still probably believe that they have a chance so they are going to keep battling. That will come on Saturday night against the Diamondbacks again.
Davis Martin is going to get the start as it would have been Michael Kopech if not for injury. It will surely be interesting to see if the White Sox can take a step toward saving their season in the final weeks.
