"The AL Central is home to some disappointments. It's surprising that the White Sox are still struggling as much as they are, but their pitching is old and only getting older. Even offensively, with Jim Thome, Paul Konerko and Jermaine Dye, the core of that lineup is old." ----Per John Kruk.
Apparently Mark Buehrle, John Danks, Gavin Floyd and Clayton Richard are the starters who are old and only getting older.
What a moron.
Buehrle is 30-years-old and in the prime of his career having an all-star season. Danks and Floyd are 24 and 26-years old respectively while Richard comes in at 25-years-old.
Dinosaurs I tell ya!
Look, I realize Jose Contreras may be well into his 40's but by no means does he speak for this rest of this pitching staff.
Just awful research Kruk. Awful.
Is the core of the lineup old? Yes it is.
But what Kruk fails to draw upon is the fact that the younger players have to keep up their production or build upon it if the Chicago White Sox win the AL Central.
