The Chicago White Sox are enduring yet another miserable season, and now the frustration seems to be spilling over into the locker room as well.
After the Sox got thumped by the Cleveland Indians 12-0 on Wednesday, righty Reynaldo Lopez, who started and took the loss, vented to reporters.
“It’s unacceptable for us to look the way we looked today,” said Lopez, per MLB.com’s Scott Merkin. “Nobody is happy about the way we looked today. Honestly, we looked like clowns there, starting with me. But I know we can do better. It’s a matter of us to keep grinding, improving and working hard.”
The 24-year-old’s remarks were sharp, and they apparently did not sit too well with some his teammates. On Friday, Steve Greenberg of the Chicago Sun-Times revealed the reactions of multiple White Sox players who sounded unhappy about Lopez’s comments.
