A Trip Around the Ballpark!

A Trip Around the Ballpark!
It took a little while longer than usual, but I finally got to a game this year.  It was a bit of a spur of the moment thing, which when the White Sox are concern is a definite, if not best possibility.  I could have gone to the ticket window and got a ticket, but... Read more »

This Week in White Sox: Good Feeling Gone

This Week in White Sox: Good Feeling Gone
Well that didn’t take long. After coming off a successful road trip and  stretching their winning streak to six games, the White Sox went back to what we’ve seen thus far in the season. Currently the White Sox are 29th in runs scored per game, 3.50, and during the Cleveland series they were even worse... Read more »

This Week in White Sox: .500!

This Week in White Sox: .500!
Now that is what I call a good week! Two series on the road, one loss against five wins, a sweep in the devil’s backyard and a general feeling of good tidings. Things got off to a bit of a bummer in Milwaukee, Samardzija did not have a great start and the White Sox came up... Read more »

This Week in White Sox: Home Is Where the Wins Are

This Week in White Sox: Home Is Where the Wins Are
Well this is turning into bit of a trend.  The White Sox are a much more bearable team to watch when playing at home.  Two series wins, one within the division.  In the Detroit series we got an excellent start by Jeff Samardzija and an excellent comeback win.  What made the comeback a little sweeter...

These Weeks in White Sox: Getting Caught Up

These Weeks in White Sox: Getting Caught Up
Had to miss a week and almost this one, but let’s just compress what we know after a scary weekend in Minnesota and a decent two of three from Detroit.  We pretty much got the best and worst that White Sox baseball has to offer.  My last post focused on how, yet again, the White... Read more »

They are doing it again

They are doing it again
They are doing it again. The White Sox are well on their way to becoming an afterthought for the entire summer.  I know we haven’t hit my own “it’s no longer early” deadline, but after a month of underwheming baseball  the excitement of April 6 is long gone. The most egregious games were the last... Read more »

This Week in White Sox: Lots of Off Days

This Week in White Sox: Lots of Off Days
Luckily, the White Sox had two off days during this week because they are still not looking particularly sharp.  They did manage to extend their winning ways on Tuesday, taking their first meeting with Cleveland, 4-1.  It’s always good to get a win, but in three starts, Jose Quintana has pitched in 5, 6 and...

Is There Something Going On? Kris Bryant Debuts

Is There Something Going On? Kris Bryant Debuts
Don’t know if you heard, but Kris Bryant is debuting today at Wrigley Field.  I’m sure if I went lurking around the White Sox corners of the internet, there would be the requisite bitching about how this is a Cubs town, people forecasting his failure, in fact hoping for it, and the general little brother...

This Week in White Sox: Simmer Down Now

This Week in White Sox: Simmer Down Now
Opening Day! Opening Week! The new baseball season is here! Aaaand, it was not a good week for the South Siders. I’m not going to try and convince anyone otherwise. Starting out 0-4 is just not the way to build on the excitement that this team generated over the off-season.  In particular the White Sox... Read more »

Two Great Ideas From the White Sox Box Office

I’ll be the first to admit it, I can’t take advantage of a new idea from the White Sox box office.  I’m hoping that they will do it throughout the season, not just the first two months.  In essence, it really isn’t that new to the whole idea of ticket sales when compared to European... Read more »
