Random Sunday notes: Peavy, Youk, A.J. and ex-White Sox in the playoffs
A few observations while I’m watching football, old movies and the “other guys” in the baseball playoffs: 1. It was very disappointing to watch the Tigers open up the ALDS vs. the A’s–and win. I would have liked our chances against the young A’s. 2. I count 15 former White Sox major and minor leaguers... Read more »

A two-run blast, a Sox-killer returns and "Oh, those bases on balls"
The White Sox played to recent form last night except for one thing–they didn’t come away with a win. The Sox fell behind 1-0 in the second inning, then came back to take take a 2-1 lead in the top of the sixth on the power of Kevin Youkilis’s 16th homer. The Orioles quickly tied... Read more »

As Sox Begin Road Trip in St. Louis, Here's a Mini-Preview of the World Champion Cardinals
Are the White Sox of “First Place” caliber? During the recent nine-game winning streak we would have said a defiinite “yes.” Now, after a disappointing 4-5 homestand in which we faced the Mariners, Blue Jays and Astros, we’re not quite so confident even though we still enjoy a slim 1/2 game lead over the Tribe....
