Chomping at the bit for some action on the South Side

Chomping at the bit for some action on the South Side
Let’s see..the Dodgers sign Zack Greinke, the Angels surprise everybody by bringing in Josh Hamilton, the Yankees sign Kevin Youkilis, the and re-sign Ichiro, the Tigers reached a deal with Anibel Sanchez, the Royals trade for James Shields and Wade Davis and so on and so on. In the name of Jeff Keppinger and Angel... Read more »

The White Sox's bottom line: 10 games left, 1 game ahead

The White Sox's bottom line: 10 games left, 1 game ahead
As disastrous as the Royals/Angels road trip was for the Sox, it could have been a whole lot worse–which makes you think that somebody up there likes us. The Sox, losers of two of three in Kansas City and swept away in Anaheim by scoring a grand total of five runs in the three games,... Read more »

White Sox dilemma as lead dwindles to a 1/2 game: Where's the pop?

White Sox dilemma as lead dwindles to a 1/2 game: Where's the pop?
Giving up four runs in the first inning to the Angels didn’t have to sink Jose Quintana last night, but it did. At the absolutely worst time, the resilient  2012 White Sox are missing. These must be their “bizarro world” cousins. Since the exhilirating 5-4 victory over the Tigers last Monday which extended the Sox’s... Read more »

The White Sox march to the postseason: You didn't think it would be easy, did you?

The White Sox march to the postseason: You didn't think it would be easy, did you?
Three straight losses. After five straight wins. Such is the current reality of White Sox baseball as the South Siders try to hang on to what is now a game and a half lead over the Tigers, who after their postponement with the Twins last night will play a doubleheader on Sunday. I’m not ready... Read more »

With 13 games to go, here are some questions White Sox fans are asking...
As the White Sox made their way to Anaheim last night to face the Angels of Albert Pujols, Mike Trout, Torii Hunter and Jered Weaver this weekend, they certainly tried to put another lost series to the Kansas City Royals behind them. But will they be able to erase the bad memory so quickly? That’s... Read more »

Sox sweep Twins, extend lead over Tigers to two games as rivals meet Monday at the Cell

Sox sweep Twins, extend lead over Tigers to two games as rivals meet Monday at the Cell
How impressive were the White Sox on Sunday? Well, they scored so many runs and had such a big lead in the 9-2 triumph over the Tigers that even Pedro Lopez, Ray Olmedo, Dan Johnson and Jordan Danks all got at bats. And to make it a perfect day, the Indians overcame a Miguel Cabrera... Read more »

The dreaded scenario: Sox have to beat Verlander to hold lead over Tigers

The dreaded scenario: Sox have to beat Verlander to hold lead over Tigers
It’s come down to this. If the White Sox want to maintain their lead in the A.L. Central and don’t want to fall into a tie with the Tigers, they have to beat Detroit and last year’s MVP/Cy Young winner Justin Verlander tonight in the series finale. The positive for the Sox is that Verlander’s opponent... Read more »

White Sox lose another heartbreaker to Royals, get ready for Tiger showdown

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 »

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 »

The Final Stretch Begins at the Cell with a Royal Flush--Mendoza, Chen and Guthrie

The Final Stretch Begins at the Cell with a Royal Flush--Mendoza, Chen and Guthrie
If the White Sox are to do this–win the A.L. Central–they’ll have to do it the hard way. Down the pennant stretch, the South Siders will be facing hot teams, teams striving for their own survival, teams they haven’t been able to beat and teams out of the race trying to be spoilers. To paraphrase... Read more »
