I’ll just go ahead and say what everyone else is thinking. A tee ball team can hit this White Sox bullpen. I mean LOOK at some of these ERAs.
This is pro baseball, it’s insane some of these guys are getting paid more than I will be in a 5 year span.
But there is a silver lining to having the worst bullpen since 2013. Remember those days? Where Ronald Belisario would make you want to blow yourself up with TNT. Great times I tell ya. But that was back when the white sox would just throw money at free agents and pray to God they could compete every year. Those days are over.
We are in the 2nd year of a rebuild that should take 3-4 years to come to full fruition. The very LAST thing any team should piece together to finish off their rebuild is the bullpen. You need those blown games to get you higher draft picks and prevent your young team from winning too many games too fast. It sounds odd. But you need that.
The white sox bullpen will continue to be unbearable this year and maybe even next year depending how some of the young guys progress. But unlike 2013 this has a rhyme and reason so we don’t have to get angry and want to call for people’s heads. It’s all part of a plan, that sometimes can be painful. But it’s the right way to do it.
