2014 White Sox: Not As Bad As You Think

2014 White Sox: Not As Bad As You Think
From a post at the end of the 2013 White Sox season: Lastly, looking toward 2014, don’t expect too much.  The White Sox definitely have begun an austerity campaign.  They are going with youth, shedding payroll and I can’t imagine they will be spending much on free agents, and really why would they? I don’t... Read more »

Paul Konerko: The End of The Most Successful White Sox Era

Paul Konerko: The End of The Most Successful White Sox Era
There he goes, off to Arizona and life beyond baseball.  I’m glad I got to go to Paul Konerko’s last game on Sunday.  The official Konerko night was the game before, with all of the hoopla that one expects from a pre-game ceremony.  The parting gifts, the old players and the family all out in...

Series Recaps: Knowing When to Say When

Series Recaps: Knowing When to Say When
So there I was, being the dutiful homeowner and dad.  I was priming the house, cleaning up the porch and doing various other chores around the house.  I noticed the collection of cable wires going this way and that on the side of the house and earlier in the summer I managed to get a... Read more »

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...

    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.
