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 fans: Try to remember the good old days (before September 19)

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 »

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 »

What's happened to the White Sox we've grown to know and love?

What's happened to the White Sox we've grown to know and love?
It’s not over. With seven games to go and a game behind the Tigers, there’s still time to recapture the magic that has made this White Sox season–up until losing seven of the last eight games–so enjoyable. But you know as well as I do that it sure doesn’t look good. After almost six months... Read more »

The White Sox's bottom line: 10 games left, 1 game ahead

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 »

The White Sox march to the postseason: You didn't think it would be easy, did you?
Three straight losses. After five straight wins. Such is the current reality of White Sox baseball as the South Siders try to hang on to what is now a game and a half lead over the Tigers, who after their postponement with the Twins last night will play a doubleheader on Sunday. I’m not ready... 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. But will they be able to erase the bad memory so quickly? That’s... 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 »
