Every Game! The Wrong Time

Every Game! The Wrong Time
White Sox 1 Rays 0 4/15/16 (streak at 2) So I tuned in a little late in the game tonight, but it was still 0-0.  The White Sox didn’t do much in the top of the seventh and the Rays didn’t do much either.  However, the bottom of the seventh saw one of the worst... Read more »

Every Game! The First Streak Ends

Every Game! The First Streak Ends
4/13/16 White Sox 3-0 I was brought down by two werewolves.  Well, actually we brought down the werewolves but I didn’t catch any of the White Sox game on Wednesday.  I was playing Dungeons and Dragons with a majority of Cubs fans listening to their game.  I did track the game on Gameday, but that...

Every Game: Home Opener

Every Game: Home Opener
4/8/16 Indians 7 White Sox 1 I’d have to look at my old ticket stubs, but it’s been a few years since I’ve hit the home opener.  After seeing the weather for today’s game, I’m not sorry.  I’m sure at some point I’ll go again, but snow and baseball are not the best mix.  Checking... Read more »

Every Game!

Every Game!
Yep, you read right, I am going to watch or listen to at least one inning of every White Sox game this season.  I feel pretty good already, having gone three for three to open the season.  I’m pretty sure four for Oakland is doable because the game starts while I’m still at work and... Read more »

Gearing Up For the 2016 Season: Blogging Goals

Gearing Up For the 2016 Season: Blogging Goals
I try and keep up with my fellow White Sox bloggers, I really do.  There is a lot of good stuff out there.  Thank God I’m not a Cubs blogger.  I’d probably just sit at me computer and weep at all of the information to take in on a daily basis.  Even with my smaller... Read more »

Gearing Up For the Season: Shortstop and Third Base

Gearing Up For the Season: Shortstop and Third Base
Making our way around the horn* we get to the big upgrade and the big question mark. In the off-season the White Sox made a significant upgrade at third base by acquiring Todd Frazier in the three-way trade with the Reds.  Last year Frazier hit .255/.309/.498 with 35 home runs, a career high.  He is...

Gearing Up For the Season: First and Second Base

Gearing Up For the Season: First and Second Base
Well, since Adam LaRoche left the traffic at first base got considerably lighter.  It was always Jose Abreu at first with spells from LaRoche, now Baseball Prospectus has someone named Jerry Sands as a possible backup, along with Tyler Saladino.  Tyler is going to be a super sub if the PECOTA depth chart is accurate....

Gearing Up For The 2016 Season: Catchers

Gearing Up For The 2016 Season: Catchers
Spring training is almost over and as the teams ramp up for the regular season, it’s time for all of us bloggers in the basement to start getting ready as well.  In year’s past, I entitled these posts Fun With the Bill James Handbook, but I decided to take the plunge and subscribe to Baseball...

Whither Robin Ventura?

Whither Robin Ventura?
In the whole Adam LaRoche saga one question that keeps coming up in my mind is, “Where is Robin Ventura?”  He spoke recently about how the team will get past the situation. I’m not quite sure how that is going to happen under Ventura’s leadership.   According to Barry Rozner the 2015 White Sox were, “Without... Read more »

Todd Frazier? Could This Mean... (The White Sox Cycle: The False Hope)

Todd Frazier? Could This Mean... (The White Sox Cycle: The False Hope)
Well this is a bigger deal.  Bringing in Todd Frazier is the type of move that gets the media buzzing a little more, talking a little more about the White Sox.  It is also the type of move that hasn’t really panned out for the White Sox in recent years, see Dunn, Adam; LaRoche, Adam;... Read more »
