The End is Here: A Glass Half-Full Perspective as the White Sox are Eliminated from the Postseason

The End is Here: A Glass Half-Full Perspective as the White Sox are Eliminated from the Postseason
The end has come. Before the season began, I told friends that more than any other year I can remember I couldn’t figure out how the White Sox would be. On one hand, if everybody came through, I thought we could be very good. If the comebacks didn’t happen, we might be as bad as... Read more »

It's the math: Can the Sox find a way to win and get some help in their last six games?

It's the math: Can the Sox find a way to win and get some help in their last six games?
It doesn’t come as a surprise anymore when the White Sox don’t deliver with men in scoring position. In fact, we’ve reached the point where Sox fans have more angst when the bases are loaded and nobody out than any other scenario because there’s likely disappointment right around the corner. Last night against the Rays,... Read more »

White Sox menu of "Veal Well-Dunn" cooks Tribe; And is last night's Crede-Riske moment a good omen?

White Sox menu of "Veal Well-Dunn" cooks Tribe; And is last night's Crede-Riske moment a good omen?
Last night’s “homecoming” game had the familiar look of the past five White Sox contests–inning after inning of lost opportunity. When the Indians took a 3-1 lead in the top of the sixth, the prospect of the Sox halting the losing streak seemed dim at best. Then, in the bottom of  that frame, the recently dormant,...

Sox Win! Sox Win!: My favorite things from a memorable day on the South Side

Sox Win! Sox Win!: My favorite things from a memorable day on the South Side
It was a crucial game that was played in a playoff atmosphere with playoff implications. In the end, the White Sox prevailed before a large and enthusiastic crowd at the Cell. My favorite things about today’s beautiful afternoon on the South Side: 1. The 5-4 Sox victory expands their A.L. Central lead to three over... Read more »

Today's White Sox Report: The Good, Bad and the Ugly

Today's White Sox Report: The Good, Bad and the Ugly
The Bottom Line: White Sox 5, Twins 3…A.L. Central lead is 1 1/2 games, awaiting result of Tigers-Indians clash in Cleveland. The Good: * First and foremost, the victory. With 18 games left every game is a “must win.” * Former Twin Francisco Liriano,  who seemed to be working faster perhaps to avoid thinking too... Read more »

Are the White Sox better off with Dunn out of the lineup?

Are the White Sox better off with Dunn out of the lineup?
The question itself may seem odd. After all, Adam Dunn is among the major league home run leaders with 38 and despite his .208 batting average, his on-base percentage is a decent .340 as a result of his 96 walks–which is tops in the majors. Also, his propensity for the long ball poses a constant... Read more »

Worst Sox loss of the year? If not, it's pretty close

Worst Sox loss of the year? If not, it's pretty close
It’s getting harder and harder to watch the White Sox play the Royals. If it’s not Bruce Chen, it’s Billy Butler, if it’s not Jeff Franceour or Alex Gordon, it’s (gulp) Lorenzo Cain. K.C. keeps pushing and pushing, like they did in the demoralizing 7-5 defeat last night. A night that was only brightened a... Read more »

Look at it this way: The White Sox have a bigger division lead than the Yankees

Look at it this way: The White Sox have a bigger division lead than the Yankees
It happens over the course of a 162-game season. There are walk-off wins, walk-off losses that make you toss and turn all night and blowouts like the 18-9  pummeling the White Sox took from the Twins last night. With every game important from this point on, how did the Sox react to the humilitating loss?... Read more »

The win assured the Sox of both the home series and season series advantage. In order of their... Read more »
