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,...

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 »

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 »

It's the best of times for the White Sox as they hit the road to Baltimore and Detroit

It's the best of times for the White Sox as they hit the road to Baltimore and Detroit
A fellow White Sox fan commented to me tonight that you know it’s your year when you score two runs in the 7th inning to take the lead, it starts to pour, the tarp is put on the field and after a long delay the game is called–and you win. The Sox experienced exactly that... Read more »

Story of 2012 White Sox: They Never Give Up

Story of 2012 White Sox: They Never Give Up
Note to self: Don’t give up on the White Sox too early in the game. They have made comebacks time and time again. It doesn’t mean they’ll do it every time, but there’s always a chance. Having witnessed so many Yankee wallopings of the Sox over the years, I admit that my first tendency last... 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 »

Danks but no Danks...with Jordan sent to minors, Donnie Veal is recalled

Danks but no Danks...with Jordan sent to minors, Donnie Veal is recalled
News Item No. 1:  Jordan Danks optioned to Charlotte on Sunday. News Item No. 2:  Lefty reliever Donnie Veal recalled from Charlotte on Monday. I haven’t consulted the Elias Sports Bureau so I’m not 100 percent sure it’s unprecedented, but at the very least I’m confident that there haven’t been many players sent down to... Read more »

Every youngster's dream comes true for White Sox's Jordan Danks

Every youngster's dream comes true for White Sox's Jordan Danks
It was a wonderful new experience for the 26-year-old on multiple levels. Promoted to the major leagues in June, it was his first home run in the show. It was also his very first walk-off homer anywhere, of any kind, ever. And the best part is that the solo blast vaulted the White Sox to... Read more »

Should the White Sox be looking for more quality off of the bench?

Should the White Sox be looking for more quality off of the bench?
It became strikingly apparent last night that if the White Sox are going to hang in and win the A.L. Central, they’ll need to avoid major injuries. I’m not breaking any news here, others have made the same observation. But it really hit home during the 5-2 loss to the Royals as the Sox had... Read more »

10 Things That Didn't Happen in Last Night's White Sox Win Over the Royals

10 Things That Didn't Happen in Last Night's White Sox Win Over the Royals
Let’s look at last night’s 4-2 Sox victory over Kansas City in a “bizarro world” perspective. Here are some key things that didn’t  happen: 1. Chris Sale, who was masterful on the mound in eight innings of work, didn’t show any ill effects from the nine-day layoff prompted by a tired arm. 2. Thanks to Sale’s... Read more »
