'24 White Sox vs. '62 Mets
« Topic Start: June 12, 2024, 11:04:26 AM »
White Sox are 17-51, a .250 win pct, same as the '62 Mets.  Will be interesting to see how historically bad they can be, and if they can break the record.  Their runs scored-runs against currently predicts a .255 win pct, so not like they're unlucky.

Among other historically bad starts to a season, the 1988 Orioles were 19-51 on June 22. They ended 54-107. So I guess that gives the Southsiders something to shoot for.

And the next year the Orioles were 87-75 2 games behind the Blue Jays.

So wallowing in the gutter 5 years out from a WS, that sounds familiar

The most humiliating part of this is that due to the new draft rules, the White Sox will at best have the #10 pick in the draft.

Won two in a row, up to 23-61.  The .274 win pct is actually 10 points higher than what their runs scored-runs against would predict.

How did the White Sox collapse so completely?
