White Sox need more from Beckham, Dunn and Rios in 2012

adam-dunn

The three big albatross contracts on the Chicago White Sox are those belonging to Adam Dunn, Alex Rios and Jake Peavy. They are the three most overpaid underachievers on the Sox; at least in 2011 anyway. They are three players most Sox fans point the finger at for what went wrong last year. I agree on the first two, but think the third biggest problem is Gordon Beckham.

Peavy however, does actually have a winning record during his stay on the south side, believe it or not. And he’s 1-0 with a 3.55 ERA this young season; making a very positive statement with his strong showing versus the Detroit Tigers on opening day.

White Sox Adam Dunn: WORST. SEASON. EVER. Fire Ken Williams!

Manager Ozzie Guillen was let go by the Chicago White Sox last week, but the man who should have been cut was GM Kenny Williams. Williams has made so many bad trades, and HORRIBLE free agent signings that he was the one who really deserved to be cut.

Why? He wasted all that money on Adam Dunn, Alex Rios and Jake Peavy– all ludicrously overpaid underachieving wastes of space that you can squarely point the finger  at for what a pathetic season it was on the south side.

“All in” my ass! We’ll touch on all these individuals, but let’s focus on the big FAT ASS Adam Dunn. Showing up horribly out of shape in spring training (after signing a four year $56 million contract) is one thing, but being unable to streamline your lard ass even though you’re a professional athlete with  access to the best exercise equipment and nutritionists every day?

White Sox Adam Dunn is Hitting .029 vs. Lefties this Season

Much has been made of the Chicago White Sox Adam Dunn, and just how pathetically incompetent he’s been at the plate this season. Yes. it’s been analyzed and over analyzed, but the numbers are still STUNNINGLY BAD! Think about it, it’s almost August. So nearly four full months of the season has gone by and Dunn, after going o-2 last night with a K and a BB against Detroit Tigers lefty Duane Below, Dunn is now 2-68 on the season versus southpaws.

Two freakin’ hits! and 31 strikeouts, that’s pretty close to almost half of his at bats. With his $12 million annual salary, that means the Sox have shelled out $6 million per hit versus left-handed pitching. Just call him Steve Austin (or Lee Majors).
