CHICAGO (WSCR) It’s has been a tough season so far for the Chicago White Sox and their fans. Both thought the team would have a good chance to win the division and make a deep run into the playoffs, but through 32 games Chicago is stuck in last place.
“This is the most inexplicable team in the Major Leagues right now, I really believe that,” Peter Gammons, of the MLB Network, said on the Mully and Hanley Show. “Talking to other managers and general managers in the Central Division, they’re completely perplexed. They still think the White Sox are the best team in the division.

“But the bullpen failed them early, and then they’ve gone in this stretch where they haven’t hit. I mean, .202 [batting average] for 20 games, I mean that’s really hard to fathom. I realize [Adam] Dunn was sick and so forth, and he hasn’t started to hit, but its really hard to understand with [Gordon] Beckham and [Paul] Konerko and all the guys that they have, it’s tough to figure.”
But despite all the team’s struggles, there remains a glimmer of hope that the White Sox can pull off a similar comeback to what they did last season.
“Every passing week is another week,” Gammons said. “You take it off the schedule and you go ‘OK White Sox, when is this push going to start to come?’”
