Thornton, Ventura respond to Leyland

After Sunday's series finale loss to Detroit, Tigers manager Jim Leyland went on a bit of a rant about prognosticators who picked the White Sox to lose 90 games. His words were strong: If you picked the White Sox to lose 95 games, you don't know baseball.

Even the most pessimistic Sox fan shouldn't think 95 losses is realistic -- at worst, the Sox are somewhere in the range of 88 or so defeats, which would mean quite a bit went wrong.

Matt Thornton and Robin Ventura weighed in on Leyland's comments and the preseason projections prior to Monday's game against Baltimore:

White Sox mourn passing of former pitcher Daniel Webb

Former White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb died at the age of 28 in an ATV accident on Saturday night, according to Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis.

Davis called it a “tragic accident, and we should rally around the family.”

Webb, a Paducah, Ky. native, was with the White Sox from 2013-16 and went 7-5 with a 4.50 ERA.

The White Sox released this statement:

Daniel left many friends within the Chicago White Sox organization, and we are all shocked and stunned by the news of last night's terrible accident. He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him. All thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends as they deal with today's tragic news.
