Ugly loss ... again

CLEVELAND - Chicago, we've got a problem.
And manager Ozzie Guillen wasn't afraid to be right upfront about it after the 9-3 loss to Cleveland on Tuesday.
"I'm more concerned about the guys going out there and [playing] with better energy and seeing a better ballclub on the field,'' Guillen responded, when asked about his team's slide. "It seems like we are tired, it seems like we are dead. I don't see any energy. I don't see the grinder, I don't see a lot of things.
"A lot of things are missing right now. Maybe because we're not scoring that many runs, maybe because the starting pitcher [John Danks] goes out there for four innings and that's it. Maybe because we don't coach them right, maybe because I make the wrong decisions. Something's missing, and that's what we have to find out right away.''
Guillen also issued several warnings, starting with Danks and his current status in the starting rotation.
"We're going to give him another chance and hopefully he does better,'' Guillen said of his southpaw. "If not, we're going to think about skipping him and we'll see what we can do to help him.''
