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 »

Jake Peavy is true to his word as he signs extension to remain on South Side
We’ve heard it many times before. Player X  expresses his desire to stay with his current team and then bolts for a better offer.  Not so in the case of Jake Peavy, who has opted to sign with the White Sox instead of fielding offers as a free agent.

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.

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 »

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 »

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?

Thoughts from here and there as the White Sox go for a sweep against the Mariners and their sixth victory in a row… 1.  In years past when the Sox found themselves down by multiple runs in the early innings, the feeling was that the game was pretty much over. Not this year. A 3-0... Read more »

Be still my heart: Resilient White Sox get the job done after top of the ninth nightmare
Adam Dunn’s two homers and three RBIs, Alexei Ramirez’s two-run shot and Jake Peavy’s outstanding seven-inning outing for his 10th win of the season paced the Chicago White Sox to a  7-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners last night at U.S. Cellular Field. The win widened the Sox’s lead to 2 1/2 games over Detroit... Read more »
