"Chalk it up as a bad year."

Jermaine Dye believes a little too deep of analysis might be in play for what really has just been a miserable season for the White Sox:

"Chalk it up as a bad year. A lot of things went wrong as far as injuries. With us winning the World Series two years ago and having a year like we did this year, it makes it bigger than it really is. It's a learning process for everyone, and if we feel like we are getting into a rut, we have to find a way to climb out faster than this year."
