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 »

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...

Fun With the 2015 Bill James Handbook: AL Central Pitching Staffs
I was a little late on the draw this year and only picked up my copy of the Bill James a week or so ago.  Usually I pick it up right away when it comes out in November.  I pretty much read it cover to cover and then keep going back to my favorite parts.... Read more »

This Blogger Life: The Impact of Teachers: All About The Love
If you’ve met me, chances are I made a self-depracating joke at some point in the conversation.  If you know me, you know that I don’t have a great deal of self-confidence, have a hard time believing in myself and am a borderline half-empty kind of guy.  However,there is one thing I’m sure of; I’m...

Ray Rice Is A Bad --- Oh Look! A Blocked Punt!

Ray Rice Is A Bad --- Oh Look! A Blocked Punt!
Chris Berman is taking a little heat from the twitterati (they can’t really generate much more than that) over his self-interruption while discussing the Ray Rice news with the action going on during the game he was calling.  It made for a very awkward transition to say the least, a bit of horrible tone-deafness no...

Whither Dan McNeil?
During the radio broadcasts of White Sox games, you can still Dan McNeil saying that if you want to talk about White Sox his show and the Score got you covered.  Of course if you’ve been listening to the 670 the Score lately, you know of course that Dan McNeil has not been on the... Read more »

Series 34 White Sox v. Tigers: Detroit Rock City

Where the hell does the time go? It’s August for god’s sake.  I’m behind again too!  How the hell did I get two series behind again?  Part of it, I know is that keeping up with White Sox baseball is a little like a chore at this point of the season.  It didn’t help that... Read more »

Series 32 White Sox v. Royals: Up They Come

Remember when the Royals were scrubs? When the White Sox actually beat them on a fairly regular basis?  Yeah, me too.  Those were good times.  Times before Chen, before Butler, when it was at least a close season series?  Like last year for instance.  While the White Sox didn’t have a winning record against the...
