    I hope that veteran presence in the dugout is all they hoped, because outside of that, I don't know what value they could be getting from Beltran.

    Huh? The White Sox pitchers were garbage ! Outside Stroman they really haven't faced many good pitchers

    Beltran should be ashamed of himself ! He reminds me of when Buster Douglas fell to the mat when Holyfield barely touched him. He was suppose to be defending his heavy weight belt he got from Tyson but instead he just smiled on the mat listening to the 10 count and counting all the millions he made

    Maybe. I think the targets been there for a while. Injuries are the biggest part of it. Even if fully healthy we were likely to hit a rough patch. It seems that patch has timed itself with some tough injuries.

    Hinch should get thrown out and maybe that gives the team a spark...that's if he can manage to get himself past the level of "slightly angry but polite."

    Look at the bright side. Boston coughed up the lead. Maybe we get 1 additional game stay of execution.

    I definitely had a feeling this team would have a hangover after the deadline, but this is pretty embarrassing.

    The veteran presence that is leading this team through tough times right now? Is that the leadership we are getting from Beltran?

    Reality is we are getting robbed by him
