The homer-happy White Sox left the Boston-Detroit road trip in the rear-view mirror with a dominant series against the once-troublesome Twins. The Sox outscored Minnesota 26-10 in the three-game sweep and smashed eight home runs–a sight for our sore eyes. It was the middle of the lineup and some major help from the Cuban connection...

Anibel and Omar Who? White Sox Fight Back into First-Place Tie, Let Their Hitting Do the Talking
It remains to be seen if the Tigers’ acquisition of starting pitcher Anibel Sanchez and second baseman Omar Infante will put them over the top in the A.L. Central.

Every major league team knows that at certain points during the long summer either the pitching isn’t going to click or the hitters are going to go into a collective slump–or both.

White Sox Need a More Consistent Offense to Compensate for a Pitching Staff in Flux
No mystery here. If you don’t pitch and don’t hit, you’re not going to win many ballgames. So it was on Wednesday night as the Sox, the White version, got pummeled 10-1 by the Sox, the Red version.

Youk and Humber and a Guy Named Pedro
Philip Humber has pitched in just 67 major league games over a seven-year span, but compared to eight of his White Sox rookie mound teammates he is a grizzled veteran at age 29. The big news from last night’s 7-5 Sox victory in Boston was Kevin Youkilis’s three-run, fourth inning homer against tough lefty Jon... Read more »

Youkilis, White Sox Head to Boston After Taking Two of Three From Royals

Frankly, as the Sox failed to score in the final seven innings after plating their runs in the first two, I was waiting for the proverbial roof to cave in as we’ve seen many times at Kauffman Stadium. But “Cy” Sale, despite giving up... Read more »

Pivotal Week for White Sox Begins with Rubber Game in Kansas City

Pivotal Week for White Sox Begins with Rubber Game in Kansas City
While a heavy workload is looming this week with four games in Boston and three in Detroit, a White Sox win in Kansas City today would give the South Siders a series victory over the Royals and provide a happy plane ride into Beantown–and hopefully a little momentum.

South Siders will Benefit from Youkilis's Change of Sox

South Siders will Benefit from Youkilis's Change of Sox
On Saturday, with rumors running rampant that the White Sox were in the driver’s seat to acquire Kevin Youkilis from the Red Sox, I couldn’t have been more clear in my opinion: Youkilis was the right man at the right time for our Sox. Within about 72 hours of the post, my wish became reality... Read more »
