After the successful road trip in Milwaukee and Oakland which got the Chicago White Sox back to .500 the team suffered another face plant, going 2-5 during a 7 game home stand against divisional rivals the Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins. Now at 19-22 and completing the quarter mark of the 2015 season, the White Sox have a lot of soul searching to do if they are going to make a run at the play-offs.

@SouthSideSox why are we so happy with Steverson? The offense has never been this bad. Bring back greg walker. He looks handsome still.— KenWo (@KenWo4LiFe) May 24, 2015
@SouthSideSox which is more beneficial: $ relief from trading shark early to maximize return & pitching Johnson or holding out hope on '15?— Andrew Segall (@acs624) May 24, 2015
@SouthSideSox if you had to use a beer as an analogy for this team thus far what would it be and why?— Scott P. Hadley, Jr. (@sphadley) May 25, 2015
