Facing a Great White North sweep, surely Tony La Russa would put together a coherent lineup, efficiently using all the player tools at his disposal.
Or, you know, maybe not.

OK, well, at least our color commentator, whose job it is to connect with the fan base through the shared experience of watching the White Sox, sympathizes with the plight of fandom.
Or, again, maybe not.

Sox fans, starved for anything to get excited over, still love Johnny Cueto.
At least Johnny Cueto is really fun to watch— maxo (@WhiteSoxChirper) June 2, 2022

Aaron Bummer is all of us.
He never even makes eye contact with La Russa. pic.twitter.com/m7V9c5GemU— Patrick Nolan (@SoxMach_pnoles) June 2, 2022
I’m just gonna leave this here.
It sure be nice if the Sox could have had Kendall Gravemen pitch here— Tyler (@RegionRat14) June 2, 2022
José Abreu extended his hitting streak ...

We are so tired of losing.
I would enjoy a single win for the White Sox sometime this month— Jiolito (@Jiolito93) June 3, 2022
I think we were all legitimately having a better time during the lockout— Luis Robert’s Butt Cheeks (@CheesySox) June 2, 2022
Fans are left with no choice but to wonder: Can the White Sox turn it around in time?

I’m not holding my breath.
The hill the White Sox have to climb is becoming a steep one, no matter the division they reside. According to Elias, only 12 teams have made the postseason after reaching -50 in run differential at any point in the season. Last year's Cards did it....by winning 17 in a row.— Jesse Rogers (@JesseRogersESPN) June 2, 2022

At least one good thing happened today. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Trooper!
