White Sox's first offseason move a no-brainer: Ray Olmedo is outrighted

White Sox's first offseason move a no-brainer: Ray Olmedo is outrighted
When the White Sox took a flyer on Francisco Liriano, they gave up what looks like an up and coming infielder in Eduardo Escobar. As we all know, Liriano didn’t pan out the way the Sox had hoped and it’s very unlikely they will sign the free agent pitcher. So, that leaves us without Escobar... 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 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 »

Here are a few of my favorite things...from last night's White Sox victory over the Tigers

Here are a few of my favorite things...from last night's White Sox victory over the Tigers
Eight memorable moments from a very satisfying 6-1 win over the Tigers, which has moved the Sox to three games ahead of their rivals from Detroit: 1.  The poise of Jose Quintana as he emerged from a rough start to allow only a run, seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven...

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 »

White Sox lose another heartbreaker to Royals, get ready for Tiger showdown

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 »

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 »

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 »

After Royal debacle, White Sox look to rebound at home against the Yanks

After Royal debacle, White Sox look to rebound at home against the Yanks
I never thought I’d say this, but it’s a relief to leave Kansas City and come home to face the mighty Yankees. The White Sox just endured a weekend of futility against their new chief nemesis where they were flat in every phase of the game, getting swept by 4-2, 9-4 and 5-2 scores. The... Read more »

A.J., "Cy" Sale and more of my favorite things from today's series win over the A's

A.J., "Cy" Sale and more of my favorite things from today's series win over the A's
My favorite things about today’s 7-3 win as the White Sox take the series from the red-hot A’s: 1.  A.J. Pierzynski: Both his 23rd home run of the season, which put the Sox ahead, and his heads-up baserunning which saw him score from first on a ball that never left the infield. It’s no coincidence...
