Eric Fedde, is not smiling

Pitcher Eric Fedde, 31, who won the KBO League MVP award last year and is enjoying a successful return to the major leagues, is not smiling. That’s because the White Sox are on the verge of becoming the worst team in baseball history. They’ve lost a franchise-record 14 games in a row, the most in a single season in franchise history.

The White Sox are coming off a 2-14 loss at home to the Boston Red Sox on April 7th. The losing streak, dating back to last month’s 23rd game against the Toronto Blue Jays, has now reached 14 games.

This is the longest losing streak in franchise history in over 100 years, surpassing the 13-game losing streak from August 10 to August 27, 1924. The longest losing streak in Major League Baseball is 23 games, held by the 1961 Philadelphia Phillies. The 1988 Baltimore Orioles’ 21-game losing streak is the longest in the American League (AL).

The White Sox’ 15 consecutive losses over two seasons from 1967-1968 is the longest losing streak in a single season. With a 1-18 record in their last 19 games, 스포츠토토 it wouldn’t be surprising to see the losing streak extend.

Their performance against Boston on June 6 was just as lethargic.

Starter Jake Woodford was knocked around for seven runs on 10 hits (two homers) with three walks and three strikeouts in four innings. The bullpen was overwhelmed, allowing a whopping 24 hits. The offense also struggled until the fifth inning, when they were held to one hit off Boston starter Tanner Hauck in a no-hitter.

The White Sox are now 15-48 on the season and have the worst winning percentage (.238) among all 30 major league clubs. They are the only team in the majors with a winning percentage below .300 and are on pace for their lowest winning percentage in franchise history. The White Sox’ lowest winning percentage season was 1948 (51-101-2, .335). They’re even on pace to summon the 1916 Philadelphia Athletics (36 wins, 117 losses, 1 tie, .235 winning percentage), who had the lowest winning percentage in the modern era of baseball since 1900. They are on the verge of becoming the worst team in baseball history.

The White Sox rebuilt after trading ace Dillon Sizemore to the San Diego Padres a season ago, but they didn’t expect to fall this far. 토토사이트 순위 After opening with four straight losses, they’ve lost five, six, seven, four, two, two, two, four, and now 14 in a row.

The offense has collapsed, ranking 29th in ERA (5.09), 30th in batting average (.216) and 30th in OPS (.613). They have a -152 run-scoring margin. In the starting rotation, Peddy and Garrett Crochet have been a one-two punch, but the rest of the pitching staff has averaged over five earned runs per game. Closer Michael Kopeck has already lost six games and has an ERA in the 4-run range (4.21). He has 22 walks. The offense hasn’t had a hitter with an OPS over .750.

Injuries have also been bad.

There are currently 13 players on the disabled list. Starting pitcher Mike Clevinger, reliever Stephen Wilson, infielder Yoan Moncada, and outfielders Eloy Jimenez, Andrew Benintendi, and Tommy Pham have all been nursing injuries, and the team hasn’t been able to operate at full strength.

In the midst of this, Pedi has been struggling. After winning the Triple Crown with the NC Dinos last year and being named the KBO League MVP, Pedi is 4-1 with a 3.27 ERA and 72 strikeouts in 13 games (74⅓ innings). However, his luck hasn’t been kind, with five of his wins coming from the bullpen, including the last three games in a row.

The White Sox, who are effectively in “tanking” mode, have placed Croce and Luis Robert Jr. on the trade block. Peddy, who is in the first year of his contract, is also likely to be used as a trade chip as the demand for starting pitching increases. 온라인 슬롯 White Sox manager Pedro Griffol said, “We make contracts to win games. When we don’t win, there’s more speculation and more chances for change,” said White Sox manager Pedro Griffol, lamenting the team’s reality.
