A-Rod to White Sox? Fuggedaboutit!

A-Rod to White Sox? Fuggedaboutit!
After Alex Rodriguez’s disastrous postseason, where he was both benched and pinch-hit for as the Yankees were humiliated in four games by the Tigers, the media exploded with speculation that the one-time “best player in baseball” had played his last game in New York. Now that cooler heads have prevailed, the conventional wisdom is that... Read more »

The Tigers are World Series bound, so where did the Sox go wrong?

The Tigers are World Series bound, so where did the Sox go wrong?
It wasn’t easy to watch the Tigers dismantle the once-mighty Yankees on their way to the American League Pennant and World Series. All I could think about is our 117 days in first place and that it should have been us. But as tempting as it is to think our Sox would have gotten by... Read more »

Random Sunday notes: Peavy, Youk, A.J. and ex-White Sox in the playoffs

Random Sunday notes: Peavy, Youk, A.J. and ex-White Sox in the playoffs

White Sox fans hoping that Sale can outshine Verlander on Sunday Night Baseball
The “musts” I posted on Friday and reviewed on Saturday were things that I felt the White Sox needed to do to win this weekend’s crucial series against the Tigers in Detroit. That’s all moot now as the Sox have to just find a way, any way, to salvage one game and break their streak... 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 »

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 »
