Adam Dunn and Gone: What Might Have Been

Adam Dunn and Gone: What Might Have Been
It took a little longer than I had hoped, but the day has arrived, Adam Dunn has been traded.  I was hoping last year that it would happen, but no soap.  So, for the last month on a disappointing turn, Dunn is shuffled off to Oakland for a second rounder Nolan Sandburn.  I doubt there...

Series 39: White Sox v. Blue Jays: Old Home Week

Series 39:  White Sox v. Blue Jays: Old Home Week
Well, look who came through town — The 9th highest player in WAR ranking of Chicago White Sox History, Mark Buerhle.  On Saturday the 16th he pitched well against his former team and continued their slide to oblivion.  I was listening to Ed and DJ during that game and what struck me most was how...

Another Shot At History

Another Shot At History
I wrote a few times last year about the rarity of the 100 loss season.  How a 90+ loss season is bad, but 100 makes it historic.  The White Sox haven’t had 100 losses since 1970 and they have had some really bad teams in that time, but still no soap.  They came dangerously close... Read more »

Series 38 White Sox v. Giants: Replay Doesn't Fix Everything

Series 38 White Sox v. Giants: Replay Doesn't Fix Everything
Who says the new rules and replay are taking away from the game?  What is baseball without a little controversy?  It is as big a part of the history of the game as the records and memorable games.  There’s Merkle’s Boner, the Homer in the Gloamin’, The Pine Tar Game, The AJ Pierzynski Dropped Third...

Beckham: He Gone

Beckham: He Gone
How often is a headline so good at SEO and a horrible play on words?  Sorry I just couldn’t pass it up.  Alas, it does sum things up pretty well.  Beckham is gone from the White Sox, looking for a fresh start in sunny California.  It is safe to say, for the White Sox anyway,... Read more »

Series 37 White Sox v. Mariners: A Bad Road Trip Begins

Series 37 White Sox v. Mariners: A Bad Road Trip Begins
Kids are off to Camp Nini and Poppy, time to make some blog hay!  Would that be blay? So much to write so little time, a week probably isn’t enough to get everything I want to get finished, but what the hell, I really want to try.  I’m just going to start drafting like a... Read more »

Series 36 White Sox v. Rangers: Good to Get Out of Town

Home had been a decent place for the White Sox this season.  They had been a few games over .500 at the Cell, 27-23.  After this 2-5 stint that record is down to just 29-28.  The series against the Rangers was just as bad as the previous one, the bullpen was pretty horrendous and a... Read more »

Series 35: White Sox v. Twins Can We Get a Mulligan?

Series 35: White Sox v. Twins Can We Get a Mulligan?
The definition of a .500-ish team: maddening.  I know that .500 isn’t particularly good, but compared to 2013 it would be amazing.  At the start of this home stand, the White Sox were three games under .500.  After losing 2 of 3, the White Sox fell back to four games under.  Looking at August, the...

Whither Dan McNeil?

Whither Dan McNeil?
During the radio broadcasts of White Sox games, you can still Dan McNeil saying that if you want to talk about White Sox his show and the Score got you covered.  Of course if you’ve been listening to the 670 the Score lately, you know of course that Dan McNeil has not been on the... Read more »

Series 34 White Sox v. Tigers: Detroit Rock City

Where the hell does the time go? It’s August for god’s sake.  I’m behind again too!  How the hell did I get two series behind again?  Part of it, I know is that keeping up with White Sox baseball is a little like a chore at this point of the season.  It didn’t help that... Read more »

    I like to write. I like the White Sox. Sometimes I like to write about the White Sox which is kind of the point of this blog. Even if you don't like the White Sox or my writing, chances are, if we met you'd like me. I'm very charming.
