The White Sox announced on Sunday that Miguel Gonzalez would be starting on Monday night in Toronto, and that John Danks would be getting skipped in the rotation. It came as something of a surprise because, if skipping Danks was going to be the decision, with Erik Johnson already on the roster after he was called up last week following Carlos Rodon's horrible start against the Angels, the easiest thing to do would have been start Johnson on Monday.
Instead Johnson will end up receiving a week's worth of that MLB money without having to do anything, which is a great way to go on vacation to Chicago for a week.

White Sox fans have taken a lot of shit over the years. Tune into any typical White Sox home game on television, and you're bound to see plenty of empty seats.

You need to be told that you are a Bad Fan. You are not like the Good Fans on the other side of town, who for years forked over a bunch of their personal money to watch the Good Team no matter how shitty they were.
I didn't originally plan on nearly a week passing between my Worst White Sox Position Players post and the pitcher's version going up, but, hey, sometimes life just works out that way.
Fret no longer, though, my friends, for the list is finally here.
The worst White Sox pitchers of my lifetime (1981-present) ranked! In order! By bWAR! Relive the terrible memories of hanging curveballs, and 8-1 losses. These were the pitchers who strengthened your resolve as a White Sox fan, and helped mold you into the strong, loyal fan that you are today.
