Wins hard to come by at two levels

The White Sox farm system is still having trouble generating escape velocity from the cellar.

The good news? Well, it’s not good for Birmingham or Winston-Salem, but the 2017 season shows a big divide between haves and have-nots. The Charlotte Knights are a respectable 22-21, and Kannapolis shook off a dismal start to improve to 24-20.

The Birmingham Barons (15-30) and the Winston-Salem Dash (14-33), have combined for a .315 win percentage. The Barons have had a hard time finding traction the last couple years, but the Dash have surged past them in terms of sadness. They’re 5-18 in May, and without consecutive wins during the month.
