White Sox benefit from "Rios Factor," climb to within a game of Tigers
Make no mistake about this. If there is one White Sox player who has deserved praise from the day the season began to today, it’s Alex Rios. Rios homered to win the Sox’s first game of the year against the Rangers, has been stellar throughout the summer and last night, in the most desperate of... 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.

White Sox lose another heartbreaker to Royals, get ready for Tiger showdown
After Friday’s loss to the Royals, I posted that it might have been the worst White Sox loss of the year. Never mind, today was worse. A non-existent offense against a red-hot pitcher in Jeremy Guthrie, a lineup that included a couple of JV performers in Jose Lopez and Ray Olmedo who failed to deliver,... Read more »

Sale returns to form, Reed escapes in ninth and White Sox defeat K.C. and nemesis Chen

Sale returns to form, Reed escapes in ninth and White Sox defeat K.C. and nemesis Chen
A win is a win. It’s hard to complain about a 5-4 victory over the Royals, who went into today’s game with a six-game winning streak over the White Sox. But I could have done without the ninth inning theatrics as shaky closer Addison Reed, who retired the first two batters in the inning, surrendered... Read more »

Story of 2012 White Sox: They Never Give Up

Story of 2012 White Sox: They Never Give Up
Note to self: Don’t give up on the White Sox too early in the game. They have made comebacks time and time again. It doesn’t mean they’ll do it every time, but there’s always a chance. Having witnessed so many Yankee wallopings of the Sox over the years, I admit that my first tendency last... Read more »
