The Chicago Cuckoos!

The Chicago Cuckoos!
You may or may not be familiar with the cuckoo bird. It is a species of bird that looks for empty nests of other bird species and lays its eggs in the unoccupied nest. Bascially, the other species does all the work of building the nest and the cuckoo swoops in and uses it for... Read more »

Spiting Ones Face or Not Trading With The Cubs

Spiting Ones Face or Not Trading With The Cubs
There was a bit of a minor story around yesterday, as all stories around the White Sox are these days. The story even managed to generate a bit of a kerfuffle on Twitter. Again I strain to call it more than that considering there are about five people on Twitter that follow and comment on... Read more »

Cubs v. Indians: Match Up Of The Apocalypse

Cubs v. Indians: Match Up Of The Apocalypse
Phone rings. It’s my dad. I answer. “Hey Pop.” “You could be rooting for an American League Champion if you weren’t a traitor.” “Thanks Pop. Love to mom.” And that was the phone conversation I had earlier this week when the Cleveland Indians clinched the American League and advanced to the World Series for the... 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 »

Kenny Williams Wasn't Wrong

Kenny Williams Wasn't Wrong
It came as a shock when Adam LaRoche announced his retirement on Tuesday.  When the reason for that announcement started to come to light, it got a little more shocking.  I’ll admit, when I heard that LaRoche was retiring because Kenny Williams asked him to stop bringing his son to the clubhouse, I thought it...

White Sox Which Way Is Up?

White Sox Which Way Is Up?
So here we are at spring training, and I still don’t know what to make of the White Sox. I’ve got national publications telling me they will be good, 90 wins good.  Hell, I even subscribed to Baseball Prospectus to get the full PECOTA projections to see how they came away with the White Sox...

Here For The Party -- Leicester City

Here For The Party -- Leicester City
I know I heard Jason Goff use the phrase and he said he knicked it from Terry Boers and I’m appropriating it here.  If you’ve kind of, sort of, thought about investigating European soccer a little more, and in this case the English version specifically, now is the time.  There is a party happening in...

This Week in White Sox: Tardy Edition!

This Week in White Sox: Tardy Edition!
Hey everybody! I was off at an adult summer camp, better known as a Phish music festival, and I pretty much was able to forget about the White Sox for the better part of a week. Now back in Chicago for about a week solid some of the same issues seem to be right were... 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 »

The Interview Experience: Conference Call With Rick Hahn and Buddy Bell

The Interview Experience: Conference Call With Rick Hahn and Buddy Bell
On Tuesday, the White Sox organization invited bloggers who cover the team to have a conference call with Rick Hahn and Buddy Bell.  I’ll get to the content of the meeting in the next blog post, but the folks over at Future Sox do a great job of recapping the session.  This post is more...
