White Sox-forever Buehrle to find it lonely in Toronto without his "best friend"--and, I for one, understand
Art of the Pale Hose is regularly devoted to opinions and observations about my favorite sports team. Sometimes, though, it’s necessary to bring to life a story about a former member of our extended baseball family. Today, the focus is on all-time fan favorite Mark Buehrle.

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 »

Baseball is full of surprises.

After Royal debacle, White Sox look to rebound at home against the Yanks
I never thought I’d say this, but it’s a relief to leave Kansas City and come home to face the mighty Yankees. The White Sox just endured a weekend of futility against their new chief nemesis where they were flat in every phase of the game, getting swept by 4-2, 9-4 and 5-2 scores. The... Read more »

10 random White Sox thoughts on a Sunday morning: The Royals, Dunn's 400th, Paulie's return and a Yankee invasion, etc.
Thoughts from here and there as the Sox try to salvage the final game in K.C.: 1. It’s official. The Royals are the new Twins. Kansas City has been building up to this for years, but after last night’s four-error, 9-4 disaster, they are clearly the team that’s the most frustrating to play. Thanks, though,... Read more »

White Sox unveil new lineup, but to paraphrase an iconic political adage, "It's the pitching, stupid"

White Sox unveil new lineup, but to paraphrase an iconic political adage, "It's the pitching, stupid"
Throughout what is becoming a very memorable season for White Sox fans, we’ve gotten used to a consistent everyday lineup. There’s De Aza in the leadoff spot, Youk in the second hole, Dunn hitting third, Paulie fourth, Rios fifth, A.J. sixth and so on. But skipper Robin Ventura has realized, and rightly so, that maybe...

Wise Move: Sox promote Dewayne to replace Konerko on 25-man roster
The following is the July 1st  Art of the Pale Hose. I thought it was appropriate to re-post in light of Dewayne Wise rejoining the White Sox today, replacing Paul Konerko on the big league roster: It’s time to pay tribute to Dewayne Wise, a man baseball people refer to as a “journeyman.” Since he...

Should the White Sox be looking for more quality off of the bench?

Should the White Sox be looking for more quality off of the bench?
It became strikingly apparent last night that if the White Sox are going to hang in and win the A.L. Central, they’ll need to avoid major injuries. I’m not breaking any news here, others have made the same observation. But it really hit home during the 5-2 loss to the Royals as the Sox had... Read more »
