Amid a busy offseason, how about bringing another Hairston or two to the South Side?

Amid a busy offseason, how about bringing another Hairston or two to the South Side?
We all miss baseball, but the offseason always provides a lot of entertainment and intrigue as well. As Sox fans, so far we’ve seen: Kenny Williams promoted to Executive VP, Rick Hahn to Senior VP and GM and Buddy Bell to VP and Assistant GM. Jake Peavy signed to a two-year extension and Gavin Floyd’s... Read more »

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 »

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 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 »

The happy White Sox wrapup and what it may mean the rest of the way

The happy White Sox wrapup and what it may mean the rest of the way
There are 19 games remaining on the White Sox schedule after last night’s 6-0 Chris Sale whitewash of the Twins–and the lead remains at one over the Tigers.

A Sox fan's fantasy: 10 things I'd like to see in this week's showdown vs. the Tigers

A Sox fan's fantasy: 10 things I'd like to see in this week's showdown vs. the Tigers
Please indulge me while I fantasize about this week’s four-game series with the Tigers. 1. Jose Quintana rebounds with a solid outing tonight, the Sox win the opener and take a three-game division lead over their A.L. Central rivals from Motown. 2. Brett Myers returns to being Brett Myers and gives us uneventful eighth innings... 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 »

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 »

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 »
