    Cue up the fat lady’s mic; we’re toast.

    How embarrassing, getting swept at home by Arizona.
    Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.

      I hope those of you still attending games in person will bring more “Sell the Team” signs.

      Reinsdorf deserves every steaming pile of scorn dropped right on his head.

        This season is dead. Keep on believing if you must, but there's no reason for hope in 2022. At least we'll all save money on playoff tickets and merchandise this year.

            Very disappointing season, one of many since '81. I sure wish the other guy could have purchased the Sox back then. It might have been an entirely different outcome than things like this, over and over and over.

            I can't wait until TLR leaves the team, even if they bump him 'upstairs' to save face for JR. The hitting coach might want to start looking for alternate careers, because he's brutal.

            This team is painful to watch. I usually watch almost every game, and miss watching them when they miss the playoffs. I won't miss them this year. It will be like a mercy killing when the season ends, unless a miracle happens.

            And then, come spring, hope will spring in the chests of Sox fans everywhere.

            If I had the chance, every member of the coaching staff, with the possible exception of Katz, would be gone this afternoon. Pack your bags and hit the bricks. With the current front office, though, it won't be much of a change. Some player who had a cup of coffee with the Sox will be given the manager's job with zero experience. Rinse and repeat.

            This is supposed to be entertainment, and they're not entertaining at all. It's an unlikeable bunch for the most part. It's hard to believe the team is worth $1.5 billion.

              I've gone from anger to apathy, wandered around a bit, and ended up lost in a deep sadness . you would think all of the years of bad White Sox teams, would make you immune to this, but it doesn't.

                I guess September is the Apology Tour.

                    At this point, shut down TA Moncada Eloy Robert Grandal for the year. Introduce them to a weight room and let them know you expect them to be stronger next year. Guys like Romy And Sosa and Zavala may not be major players but Atleast they ****ing try.

                    I am not gonna lie, I know it’s gonna be a long off-season of hearing it locally, so in a way I’m Glad those guys got bood off the field. Even Abreu today, not scoring from first on Vaughns double to the corner, Eloy not even jogging in the 8th on a ball where he would have been the tying run. All of these lazy ass stupid plays have added up this year.

                      You really think that more time in the freaking weight room is the answer to all the soft-tissue injuries these guys have had?

                        The DeBartolo what if…. taking the 49er’s as a case study, things may have turned out in a more victorious and positive way.

                        Farewell to this season of superior suckitude from the top on down.

                            Yeah, I know. But it's been one **** show after another for too long. No accountability it seems.

                              These words seem hollow now after many of us expressing them since the season began but this is the single most disappointing season I've experienced as a fan.

                              For what seemed like the billionth season in a row we lost a key piece in ST (Crochet) and then found out TA would be suspended to start the season. Then we blow the first game not once but twice, and in the second game lose Pollock. The carousel of injuries snowballed from there and through it all the managerial decision making never improved. The GM never took steps to improve the team. The team doesn't hustle, makes errors, has the worst baserunning I've seen (hello 8-5 triple play) and play the most uninspired brand of baseball in the league. They also don't hit home runs. I don't know how this gets fixed. I do not blame the fans reactions this weekend.

                              I go back to 2020 when we fired Renteria and the hope I felt as a fan. Thought surely we are going to hire a guy who would be a massive improvement and would start this true contention window. Instead all we have to show for it is getting our asses handed to us by Houston in ALDS. We weren't even real competition for them. Brutal.
