What's happened to the White Sox we've grown to know and love?

What's happened to the White Sox we've grown to know and love?
It’s not over. With seven games to go and a game behind the Tigers, there’s still time to recapture the magic that has made this White Sox season–up until losing seven of the last eight games–so enjoyable. But you know as well as I do that it sure doesn’t look good. After almost six months... Read more »

White Sox vs. Indians, Game 2: So much for momentum

White Sox vs. Indians, Game 2: So much for momentum
Expectations were high yesterday afternoon after the dramatic events of Monday night. So much for momentum. An errant throw by Gordon Beckham in the fourth inning that prevented the White Sox from turning a routine double play resulted into a 4-0 Indians lead–a lead that the Sox couldn’t overcome against a pitcher named Corey Kluber...

White Sox menu of "Veal Well-Dunn" cooks Tribe; And is last night's Crede-Riske moment a good omen?

White Sox menu of "Veal Well-Dunn" cooks Tribe; And is last night's Crede-Riske moment a good omen?
Last night’s “homecoming” game had the familiar look of the past five White Sox contests–inning after inning of lost opportunity. When the Indians took a 3-1 lead in the top of the sixth, the prospect of the Sox halting the losing streak seemed dim at best. Then, in the bottom of  that frame, the recently dormant,...

The White Sox's bottom line: 10 games left, 1 game ahead

The White Sox's bottom line: 10 games left, 1 game ahead
As disastrous as the Royals/Angels road trip was for the Sox, it could have been a whole lot worse–which makes you think that somebody up there likes us. The Sox, losers of two of three in Kansas City and swept away in Anaheim by scoring a grand total of five runs in the three games,... Read more »

White Sox dilemma as lead dwindles to a 1/2 game: Where's the pop?

White Sox dilemma as lead dwindles to a 1/2 game: Where's the pop?
Giving up four runs in the first inning to the Angels didn’t have to sink Jose Quintana last night, but it did. At the absolutely worst time, the resilient  2012 White Sox are missing. These must be their “bizarro world” cousins. Since the exhilirating 5-4 victory over the Tigers last Monday which extended the Sox’s... Read more »

The White Sox march to the postseason: You didn't think it would be easy, did you?

The White Sox march to the postseason: You didn't think it would be easy, did you?
Three straight losses. After five straight wins. Such is the current reality of White Sox baseball as the South Siders try to hang on to what is now a game and a half lead over the Tigers, who after their postponement with the Twins last night will play a doubleheader on Sunday. I’m not ready... Read more »

Sox sweep Twins, extend lead over Tigers to two games as rivals meet Monday at the Cell

Sox sweep Twins, extend lead over Tigers to two games as rivals meet Monday at the Cell
How impressive were the White Sox on Sunday? Well, they scored so many runs and had such a big lead in the 9-2 triumph over the Tigers that even Pedro Lopez, Ray Olmedo, Dan Johnson and Jordan Danks all got at bats. And to make it a perfect day, the Indians overcame a Miguel Cabrera... 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 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 »

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 »
