The season couldn't have gone worse for a Chicago White Sox club that stepped up its payroll above $127 million and then did a belly flop before the first week of April was complete.

Adam Dunn and Alex Rios were heaped with the most criticism, but this was a team failure all the way from the top. There was Kenny Williams' flawed roster, Ozzie Guillen's inability to get anything out of it and an incredible lack of consistency that prevented a winning run.

The White Sox finished the season with a 79-83 record, their second sub-.500 season over the past three years.

So with that in mind, we offer grades for every player, with an opportunity for readers to give their own assessment. Agree or disagree, it's your choice. Share your thoughts in the comments section.

This could get ugly.
