The White Sox Outdated Philosophy

The White Sox Outdated Philosophy
By the end of last night, I was pretty done with the whole Machado situation. I had run through the stages of grief that being a White Sox fan necessitates. I had reached acceptance. Then, before retiring for the evening I saw a tweet from Bruce Levine that told us a great deal. Not so... Read more »

Another Soxfest In The Books

Another Soxfest In The Books
I wrote six years ago about Soxfest and pretty much everything I wrote then kind of still applies. The whole point of Soxfest and any fan fest for a sports team is to drum up excitement for the coming year. Like 2013, I don’t see the 2019 edition of Soxfest doing much drumming. If anything,...

Baseball Teams Makes A Lot Of Money

Baseball Teams Makes A Lot Of Money
I wrote this a couple of years ago and I still like the idea. If you don’t want to click the link, it’s basically my outline for discouraging tanking. It still hasn’t caught on and after seeing the revenues reported recently, it probably won’t any time soon. I’m not exactly sure how that $10.3 billion... Read more »

Better Than Baines: A New White Sox And Stuff Feature

Better Than Baines: A New White Sox And Stuff Feature
Sometimes inspiration trickles in, sometimes it hits like a thunderclap. The announcement Sunday night that Harold Baines (and Lee Smith) was elected to the Hall of Fame was such a bolt from the blue. My first reaction was, “What?” Next, “Is some White Sox fan trolling the internet?” Alas, no. The election of Harold Baines... Read more »

So Long Hawk!

So Long Hawk!
It comes as no surprise to followers of this blog (and thanks btw!) that I was not the biggest Hawk Harrelson fan. He was more than a homer, he was a company man. He hinted at conspiracy theories about the umpires having it out for the White Sox, perhaps the first conspiracy to keep a... Read more »

Michael Kopech is debuting for the White Sox tonight. I don’t want to put too much pressure on the kid,... Read more »

Road Trip! Washington Nationals Ballpark

Road Trip! Washington Nationals Ballpark
So, when you have a 6 hour layover in Cincinnati, what are you to do? Write a quick review of your visit to Washington Nationals Park from the night before, of course! I was in DC (Arlington to be more specific) for a work conference and is my habit for years on end, I check... Read more »

Help Wanted!

Help Wanted!
So, I’ve got a lot got on. I work full time. I’m a pretty active parent. Recently I started writing freelance. Getting paid to write has been a great experience. Blogging is great, but it don’t pay the bills. Speaking of not getting paid, including this blog, I have the Phishy based blog, a couple... Read more »

Father's Day!

Father's Day!
OK, a post a month isn’t really what I signed up for, now is it? Neither did you if you subscribed. However, I’ve got some ideas about that, but more on that in another post. Not next month, probably later today or this week. Stay tuned.  Father’s Day! What an awesome day at the ball... Read more »

Wednesday Sucked
I know where we are at as White Sox nation. We are in that place where winning doesn’t matter, in fact it is seen by many to be detrimental to the overall rebuilding plan. We are decidedly in that group of teams in Major League Baseball not trying to win this year. Still, on a... Read more »
