I’ve been on the Alex Rios bandwagon since the bandwagon was originally constructed. However, I have to dangle one leg off of the back of the bandwagon for a second and admit that Rios has been brutal at the plate during his time in Chicago. He’s hit .162 and has only drawn three walks, which comes out to an astounding .182 OBP!
His range in the outfield has been great (2.57 RF/G)—the best of his career, actually. But he’s also committed two errors, so I can’t even cling to his fielding as a reason for hope for Sox fans.
Bottom line on Alex Rios is that he will improve.
However, his performance this year has been worse than forgettable. If there was a team picture of players who hurt this team down the stretch, Alex Rios would be the one holding the White Sox sign.
Time to get back on the bandwagon. Plenty of room on here!
