“We Are Just Not Fun to Watch”

White Sox fans reached a boiling point at the Cell last night as they heartily booed their beloved South Siders, who lost a 7-0 decision to the Twins. The defeat gave the Sox the dubious distinction of being shut out a major league-leading 13 times this season.

Frankly, I have run out of explanations of how a team with such established major league hitters can perform this way. It’s especially hard to understand when you look at the stats and the Sox pitching staff has the second lowest team ERA in the American League.

While Ozzie went on record basically saying he can’t blame the fans, Gordon Beckham offered his assessment.

“It’s a pretty frustrating time for the White Sox,” the rookie said. “We are just not fun to watch.”

To say the least.
