Pennant race anxiety: Try to enjoy it

Pennant race anxiety: Try to enjoy it
Fellow White Sox fans, the next couple of weeks won’t be for the faint of heart. From this point on, through the season’s final day on October 3rd, each of the 14 remaining games will be the equivalent of a “must win.” The two-game advantage over the Tigers is somewhat of a luxury, but we...

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 »

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 »

10 random White Sox thoughts on a Sunday morning: The Royals, Dunn's 400th, Paulie's return and a Yankee invasion, etc.

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 »

Captain Konerko is back, and Sox aces look to overcome those pesky Royals

Captain Konerko is back, and Sox aces look to overcome those pesky Royals
The good news is that Paul Konerko is scheduled to be in tonight’s White Sox lineup, the South Siders just won their four-game series in Toronto and increased their division lead over the Tigers to 2 1/2 games. The other news, potentially not so good, is that the ┬áSox begin a three-game series in Kansas... Read more »

K.C. pitchers Chen and Guthrie a Royal pain to White Sox

K.C. pitchers Chen and Guthrie a Royal pain to White Sox
You could understand if it were C.C. Sabathia and Jered Weaver, two of the games’s premier aces who seem to consistently dominate the White Sox. But the past two nights at the Cell, in 5-2 and 2-1 losses to the lowly Royals, the mound opponents were Bruce Chen and Jeremy Guthrie, a pair of journeyman... Read more »
