White Sox Baseball is back as SoxFest 2013 gets underway

White Sox Baseball is back as SoxFest 2013 gets underway
So, what did we learn from the first day of SoxFest 2013? * New General Manager Rick Hahn felt it was best for the long-term that the Sox parted ways with A.J. Pierzynski and said once again the club has confidence that Tyler Flowers can succeed as the everyday catcher. The point was also made... Read more »

Are the White Sox better off with Dunn out of the lineup?

Are the White Sox better off with Dunn out of the lineup?
The question itself may seem odd. After all, Adam Dunn is among the major league home run leaders with 38 and despite his .208 batting average, his on-base percentage is a decent .340 as a result of his 96 walks–which is tops in the majors. Also, his propensity for the long ball poses a constant... Read more »

Sale returns to form, Reed escapes in ninth and White Sox defeat K.C. and nemesis Chen

Sale returns to form, Reed escapes in ninth and White Sox defeat K.C. and nemesis Chen
A win is a win. It’s hard to complain about a 5-4 victory over the Royals, who went into today’s game with a six-game winning streak over the White Sox. But I could have done without the ninth inning theatrics as shaky closer Addison Reed, who retired the first two batters in the inning, surrendered... 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 »

10 random White Sox thoughts on a Sunday morning: Comebacks, "Mad Dog" Ventura, DWise and the week ahead, etc.
Thoughts from here and there as the White Sox go for a sweep against the Mariners and their sixth victory in a row… 1.  In years past when the Sox found themselves down by multiple runs in the early innings, the feeling was that the game was pretty much over. Not this year. A 3-0... Read more »

10 random White Sox thoughts on a Sunday morning: The Royals, Dunn's 400th, Paulie's return and a Yankee invasion, etc.

10 random White Sox thoughts on a Sunday morning: The Royals, Dunn's 400th, Paulie's return and a Yankee invasion, etc.
Thoughts from here and there as the Sox try to salvage the final game in K.C.: 1. It’s official. The Royals are the new Twins. Kansas City has been building up to this for years, but after last night’s four-error, 9-4 disaster, they are clearly the team that’s the most frustrating to play. Thanks, though,... Read more »

Captain Konerko is back, and Sox aces look to overcome those pesky Royals
The good news is that Paul Konerko is scheduled to be in tonight’s White Sox lineup, the South Siders just won their four-game series in Toronto and increased their division lead over the Tigers to 2 1/2 games. The other news, potentially not so good, is that the  Sox begin a three-game series in Kansas... Read more »
