After an uninspired performance on Saturday against the St. Louis Cardinals losing both games of a doubleheader, the White Sox bounced back in a big way on Sunday. However, with an 11-11 record, White Sox fans are calling for Rick Renteria’s job. Is Renteria performing poorly? Or are fan’s anger misdirected to the real cause for the White Sox inconsistencies?
What should help the White Sox is a four-game series against Detroit, which starts on Monday. The Athletic’s Cody Stavenhagen joins the show to provide insight on where the Tigers stand today after losing five straight games.
In the end, we answer your questions in P.O. Sox.

After reading Jim’s article on Leury’s injury, pointing out the Sox complete lack of depth in their system on the left side of the infield, I was wondering if you think the Sox will look outside their org to add someone with more upside than Ryan Goins and Cheslor Cuthbert? If you do, who might be some plausible targets besides Yolmer Sanchez from San Francisco?

Is there a player in the organization who could make better use of Zach Collins’ roster spot? I don’t understand his purpose on the team.

How exactly have the White Sox ended up with SO MANY hitters without plate discipline? Have there been other organizations that have taken notably bad plate discipline hitters and gotten progress?

I listened with great interest to your interview with Chris Rongey about the Sox/Cards series — specifically, the truncated double headers. I would be interested to hear your thoughts about these shortened games. It seems to me that these games are very different in multiple ways from traditional games — forcing teams to rethink their line-ups, their pitching staffs, while requiring in-game decisions that potentially deplete rosters in ways that longer games might not. Do you think that these games should be factored differently in the end-of-year records? Should they be assigned some sort of weighted average, or perhaps some kind of handicap — to be more fair in the end of season playoff consideration? I would appreciate your thoughts. Thank you.

I haven’t seen this brought up anywhere yet but I’ve wondered if you’ve been noticing Jason Benetti’s new home run call he’s been trying out this year; “Bring him home.” Personally, I’m a big fan but also because he seems to recognize that properly avoiding overuse is what enhances an already good home run call. Some good calls can become stock pretty quickly when broadcasters feel the need to force them in to every home run announcement. Jason seems to know the appropriate time to use it. I’ve wondered if you’ve not only noticed the call but if you’ve liked it, as well as his usage of the call and any other thoughts in general?

Through a third of the 2020 season has your outlook on the efficacy of the rebuild changed at all?
