Why the White Sox probably won’t be particularly competitive in 2012

I accepted an invitation to start writing once a week at Southside Showdown, and started things out by telling my new audience that the 2012 team would probably be pretty bad.  Not definitely, not almost definitely, just probably.  Hooray for first impressions!
