This is the worst start to an offensive by the White Sox in 56 years. Listen up:

Aside from injuries, the White Sox's offense is the main problem with this squad thus far this season.  

So far in eight games, the White Sox have managed to score thirteen runs. Since 1968, that is the fewest runs they have scored in the first eight games. Also, the Sox have lost three in a row, the most recent being Saturday's 3-0 setback to the Royals.  

The Sox's injury problem has persisted in consecutive seasons. And it, too, has persisted. The Red Sox are now nursing two injury lists: one for Eloy Jimenez (right adductor strain) and another for Luis Robert Jr. (right hip flexor strain).  

Having two of your top hitters out with injuries reduces your team's chances of scoring runs. Injuries do occur, though.  

The White Sox also lack depth in their hitting lineup. Andrew Benintendi (.094) and Andrew Vaughn (.185) are still not here, despite being expected to bat.  

In Friday's game against the Royals, the Sox managed just two walks and three singles.  

Current team statistics show that the White Sox have the worst batting average (.177), fewest hits (43), fewest RBIs (12), and sixth-fewest home runs (7) in the league. The South Side are currently 1-7 on the season, so clearly not much is going their way.

Before heading to Cleveland for another AL Central clash against the leading Guardians, they play one final game against the Royals on Sunday.
