Random Sunday notes: Peavy, Youk, A.J. and ex-White Sox in the playoffs

Random Sunday notes: Peavy, Youk, A.J. and ex-White Sox in the playoffs
A few observations while I’m watching football, old movies and the “other guys” in the baseball playoffs: 1. It was very disappointing to watch the Tigers open up the ALDS vs. the A’s–and win. I would have liked our chances against the young A’s. 2. I count 15 former White Sox major and minor leaguers... Read more »

Some Trouble in Paradise, but Sox Still in First Place

Some Trouble in Paradise, but Sox Still in First Place
The euphoria over the White Sox’s nine-game winning streak in May/June has pretty much disappeared now that the Sox have lost their last four series after claiming the rubber game vs. the Mariners on June 3.  And, with the disaster that was last night’s 12-3 hammering by the Cubs, a fifth straight series loss will...

Sox Bullpen to the Rescue in 5-4 Triumph over Dodgers

Sox Bullpen to the Rescue in 5-4 Triumph over Dodgers
Through their first 65 games, The White Sox have demonstrated a resiliency to come from behind and stay in almost every game. It’s a quality that every contending team has to have and it’s primarily a result of a persistent offense and a stellar bullpen. Take last night, for instance. The Sox jumped out to... Read more »

White Sox Limp into L.A. to Face the Best Team in Baseball

White Sox Limp into L.A. to Face the Best Team in Baseball
White Sox fans are running out of patience with Gavin Floyd. With the Sox having a chance to win the series against the Cardinals and increase their A.L. Central lead to 2 1/2 games over the Indians, Floyd failed again last night. In just 4 2/3 innings, he gave up five runs, eight hits and... Read more »

A Classic Pitchers' Duel, but the Wrong Team Won

A Classic Pitchers' Duel, but the Wrong Team Won
A pitching duel between two aces doesn’t often live up to expectations. Many times the 1-0, 2-1, 3-2 game that is predicted turns into a slugfest. It wasn’t the case last night, however, in the 1-0 St. Louis triumph over the White Sox. The matchup of the Cardinals’ Lance Lynn, now tied for the major... Read more »

Maybe the White Sox Should Play All Their Games on the Road

Maybe the White Sox Should Play All Their Games on the Road
Now that’s the way to start a road trip. After dropping last weekend’s series to the Astros, which included a very messy 11-9 loss on Sunday, the White Sox were back on their game last night with the impressive 6-1 victory over the Cardinals in St. Louis. That gives the South Siders a major league-leading 18-9... Read more »

As Sox Begin Road Trip in St. Louis, Here's a Mini-Preview of the World Champion Cardinals

As Sox Begin Road Trip in St. Louis, Here's a Mini-Preview of the World Champion Cardinals
Are the White Sox of “First Place” caliber? During the recent nine-game winning streak we would have said a defiinite “yes.” Now, after a disappointing 4-5 homestand in which we faced the Mariners, Blue Jays and Astros, we’re not quite so confident even though we still enjoy a slim 1/2 game lead over the Tribe....

Lowly Astros Too Much For Sox; World Champion Cardinals and First-Place Dodgers Up Next

Lowly Astros Too Much For Sox; World Champion Cardinals and First-Place Dodgers Up Next
If losing two of three to the youthful, lowly Astros this weekend weren’t bad enough for the White Sox, consider three things that make matters even worse: 1. They were beaten by Sox castoff Lucas Harrell, who never showed enough to stick in Chicago. 2. The scores of the two losses were of the embarrassing... Read more »

Cy Sale, The Big Donkey, De Awesome, Brother Jordan and Altogether a Happy Day on the South Side

Cy Sale, The Big Donkey, De Awesome, Brother Jordan and Altogether a Happy Day on the South Side
Random notes from today’s fun 10-1, 17-hit victory over the Astros on a hot afternoon at The Cell: * Chris “Cy” Sale was magnificent. In chalking up his eighth victory vs. just two losses, he followed up his first career complete game in his last start by pitching eight shutout innings, allowing just four singles,... Read more »
