Pick 6: What's wrong with the once-mighty White Sox offense?

Tuesday, August 11th

Mike Mulligan and David Haugh conducted the Pick 6 segment, debating a variety of questions.

-- What's wrong with the once-mighty White Sox offense, which has managed a meager 11 runs combined in the last six games? Will shortstop Tim Anderson’s return spark a revival?

-- What did you think of White Sox left-hander Dallas Keuchel calling out his teammates after a 5-1 loss to the Tigers on Monday by saying the team came out "flat" and that some teammates are "going through the motions." Was that good leadership or a newcomer crossing the line by publicly criticizing teammates?

-- Given that the NBA and NHL bubbles are operating well, should MLB begin exploring bubble possibilities for its playoffs? What destination makes the most sense to host a bubble?

-- Do you believe this is the final playoff series together for the Blackhawks’ championship core? If the Blackhawks are to upset the top-seeded Golden Knights, who will be the player, outside of goalie Corey Crawford, who puts the team on his back?

-- The New York Rangers were swept by Carolina in their qualifying-round series, then won the No. 1 pick in NHL Draft lottery on Monday and the right to select top prospect Alexis Lafreniere, who has been compared to Sidney Crosby. Do you wish the Blackhawks bowed out against Oilers and had that pick?

-- The divisiveness continues in college football, with Big Ten coaches like Michigan's Jim Harbaugh and Nebraska's Scott Frost advocating to play amid the pandemic this fall while the league is expected to cancel its season. Meanwhile, the SEC and ACC are still looking to proceed with games this fall. Who’s right and who’s wrong – and who's putting what’s best for the players first?
