White Sox News & Notes: Blake Tekotte, the Loss of a Bullpen Coach and "Who's on Third?"

White Sox News & Notes: Blake Tekotte, the Loss of a Bullpen Coach and "Who's on Third?"
The latest from SoxWorld: Who is Blake Tekotte? The most recent White Sox move, acquiring 25-year-old outfielder Blake Tekotte from the Padres for minor league reliever Brandon Kloess, will most likely will receive lukewarm response from the faithful. But GM Rick Hahn obviously sees something in the former 2008 third round draft choice by San... Read more »

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 »

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 »

White Sox benefit from "Rios Factor," climb to within a game of Tigers

White Sox benefit from "Rios Factor," climb to within a game of Tigers
Make no mistake about this. If there is one White Sox player who has deserved praise from the day the season began to today, it’s Alex Rios. Rios homered to win the Sox’s first game of the year against the Rangers, has been stellar throughout the summer and last night, in the most desperate of... Read more »

It's the math: Can the Sox find a way to win and get some help in their last six games?

It's the math: Can the Sox find a way to win and get some help in their last six games?
It doesn’t come as a surprise anymore when the White Sox don’t deliver with men in scoring position. In fact, we’ve reached the point where Sox fans have more angst when the bases are loaded and nobody out than any other scenario because there’s likely disappointment right around the corner. Last night against the Rays,... Read more »

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,...

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 »

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 »
