Sox: The Clean Slate Award

<p>Anyone who has seen <a class="runtimeTopic" href="#" data-topic-id="ENMV0001841">"The Dark Knight Rises"</a> knows this award goes to the person or people most deserving of a fresh start, where the past is erased. While many of the players on the Sox roster would qualify for this distinction, this award goes to those who deserve it most: ALL WHITE SOX FANS. After having their backs broken by a Cubs sweep earlier in the year and enduring many heartbreaking defeats, this season has been the Bane of the Sox fan's existence. Unfortunately, while the Sox have a Robin (Ventura), there hasn't been a player this season whose offensive numbers would warrant calling him a Batman. So the Clean Slate Award likely will materialize in the form of white flag trades and roster retooling. Be patient, people of Soxtham, we shall rise again.</p>
