What's new with the White Sox? Here's a Thanksgiving weekend update...
If you’re like me, there’s been a little bit of football plus pro and college basketball occupying your time lately. So, in case you’ve been ignoring Hot Stove news, here’s the latest from the White Sox: * One of the feel-good Sox stories of 2012 was the return of outfielder Dewayne Wise, who hit .259...

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 »

Sox-Rays Saturday matinee: They would have stopped it in Little League

Sox-Rays Saturday matinee: They would have stopped it in Little League
If the major leagues had a mercy rule it would have sadly applied this afternoon as Tampa Bay held a 10-0 lead over the White Sox after 7 1/2 innings. Yes, that’s right, 10-0 in the latest “most important game of the year” while the Sox dropped to two games behind the Tigers with four... 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 »

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 »

Are the White Sox better off with Dunn out of the lineup?

Are the White Sox better off with Dunn out of the lineup?
The question itself may seem odd. After all, Adam Dunn is among the major league home run leaders with 38 and despite his .208 batting average, his on-base percentage is a decent .340 as a result of his 96 walks–which is tops in the majors. Also, his propensity for the long ball poses a constant... 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 »

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 »

White Sox's "musts" fall short in tough loss to Tigers

White Sox's "musts" fall short in tough loss to Tigers
Yesterday, I listed six “musts,” six things, the White Sox needed to do in order to win the series in Detroit. How’d they do? Well, not so good in the disappointing 7-4 loss to the Tigers that narrowed the South Siders’ division lead to two games. Let’s review the list: 1.  Sox aces need to... Read more »

6 "musts" for the White Sox as they look to win the series this weekend in Motown

6 "musts" for the White Sox as they look to win the series this weekend in Motown
That loud thud you heard yesterday was the White Sox losing three of four from the Orioles, an even more disappointing development after our postseason hopes escalated following the 6-0 homestand against the Yankees and the Mariners. The news isn’t all bad. Despite the results in Baltimore, where the Orioles proved their chops as a... Read more »
