Sox fans: Try to remember the good old days (before September 19)
Ah, the good old days…Remember September 18? After a 3-2 victory that night in the series opener in Kansas City, the White Sox had a five-game winning streak and maintained their three-game division lead with 16 games remaining. It’s been all downhill since. Today, with three games to go the South Siders are three games... 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.

The White Sox's bottom line: 10 games left, 1 game ahead
As disastrous as the Royals/Angels road trip was for the Sox, it could have been a whole lot worse–which makes you think that somebody up there likes us. The Sox, losers of two of three in Kansas City and swept away in Anaheim by scoring a grand total of five runs in the three games,... Read more »

With 13 games to go, here are some questions White Sox fans are asking...
As the White Sox made their way to Anaheim last night to face the Angels of Albert Pujols, Mike Trout, Torii Hunter and Jered Weaver this weekend, they certainly tried to put another lost series to the Kansas City Royals behind them.

Pennant race anxiety: Try to enjoy it
Fellow White Sox fans, the next couple of weeks won’t be for the faint of heart. From this point on, through the season’s final day on October 3rd, each of the 14 remaining games will be the equivalent of a “must win.” The two-game advantage over the Tigers is somewhat of a luxury, but we...

Miggy and Trout appear to be favorites for the A.L. MVP, but let's give Alex Rios some love

Miggy and Trout appear to be favorites for the A.L. MVP, but let's give Alex Rios some love
From the start of the 2012 season, when his ninth-inning home run in Texas gave the White Sox their first victory of the year, Alex Rios has been the South Siders’ most consistent and clutch offensive weapon combined with his superb defense in right field. It’s a season that seems light years away from his... Read more »

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 »

The dreaded scenario: Sox have to beat Verlander to hold lead over Tigers

The dreaded scenario: Sox have to beat Verlander to hold lead over Tigers
It’s come down to this. If the White Sox want to maintain their lead in the A.L. Central and don’t want to fall into a tie with the Tigers, they have to beat Detroit and last year’s MVP/Cy Young winner Justin Verlander tonight in the series finale.

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.
