White Sox Seek Winning Answers In New York

The White Sox have lost 10 of their last 11, and just got swept out of Detroit. Their 8-14 record is their worst after 22 games since 2001, the year after a division title season.

Wait, it gets worse. The 2001 team fell to 14-29, after which they decided it was batting coach Bill Buckner's fault; they fired him and replaced him with Von Joshua... which is exactly what the Cubs did in the middle of their failed 2009 season, firing batting coach Gerald Perry and replacing him with Joshua.

The good news is that the Sox have hitters who should be hitting who aren't, and you'd think eventually the bullpen issues will get solved. And the 2001 team turned it around and finished over .500 at 83-79. Last year's Sox got off to a bad start, too, and then turned in a June and July to remember.

Yankee Stadium is a tough place to win no matter where you're coming in as a visitor; tonight, Philip Humber faces the Yankees' A.J. Burnett.

It gets underway at 6 p.m. CDT and tonight, can be seen on WCIU.
