Flipping Bats and Stuff

Flipping Bats and Stuff
I know in the crazy news cycle we live in that the Tim Anderson bat flipping episode is old news. The Mueller Report is out, Kris Bryant is washed up and the White Sox have already played another game. However, full-time jobs, family life and sleep often get in the way of free writing. I...

Are We The New Cubs?

Are We The New Cubs?
Hey! Did you see that home run yesterday by Tim Anderson? One-handed down the line! He’s already got 14 hits too. And Yoan Moncada? He’s got a 1.052 OPS! Jose Abreu is off to a good start too! And Eloy Jimenez has started to hit after a bit of a nervous/shaky start. He’s got time.... Read more »

Opening Day 2019: Year 3 of the Rebuild. Year 10 Without the Playoffs

Opening Day 2019: Year 3 of the Rebuild. Year 10 Without the Playoffs
It’s Opening Day 2019 and Major League Baseball wants us to be excited. Here in the wilds of Chicago’s “other” team, there isn’t much to get excited about. Yes, the new phenom, Eloy Jimenez, is starting the year with the big league club, but he was going to get here eventually. It’s kind of like... Read more »

The White Sox Outdated Philosophy

The White Sox Outdated Philosophy
By the end of last night, I was pretty done with the whole Machado situation. I had run through the stages of grief that being a White Sox fan necessitates. I had reached acceptance. Then, before retiring for the evening I saw a tweet from Bruce Levine that told us a great deal. Not so... Read more »

Another Soxfest In The Books

Another Soxfest In The Books
I wrote six years ago about Soxfest and pretty much everything I wrote then kind of still applies. The whole point of Soxfest and any fan fest for a sports team is to drum up excitement for the coming year. Like 2013, I don’t see the 2019 edition of Soxfest doing much drumming. If anything,...

Baseball Teams Makes A Lot Of Money

Baseball Teams Makes A Lot Of Money
I wrote this a couple of years ago and I still like the idea. If you don’t want to click the link, it’s basically my outline for discouraging tanking. It still hasn’t caught on and after seeing the revenues reported recently, it probably won’t any time soon. I’m not exactly sure how that $10.3 billion... Read more »

Better Than Baines: A New White Sox And Stuff Feature

Better Than Baines: A New White Sox And Stuff Feature
Sometimes inspiration trickles in, sometimes it hits like a thunderclap. The announcement Sunday night that Harold Baines (and Lee Smith) was elected to the Hall of Fame was such a bolt from the blue. My first reaction was, “What?” Next, “Is some White Sox fan trolling the internet?” Alas, no. The election of Harold Baines... Read more »

So Long Hawk!

So Long Hawk!
It comes as no surprise to followers of this blog (and thanks btw!) that I was not the biggest Hawk Harrelson fan. He was more than a homer, he was a company man. He hinted at conspiracy theories about the umpires having it out for the White Sox, perhaps the first conspiracy to keep a... Read more »

Father's Day!

Father's Day!
OK, a post a month isn’t really what I signed up for, now is it? Neither did you if you subscribed. However, I’ve got some ideas about that, but more on that in another post. Not next month, probably later today or this week. Stay tuned.  Father’s Day! What an awesome day at the ball... Read more »

Wednesday Sucked

Wednesday Sucked
I know where we are at as White Sox nation. We are in that place where winning doesn’t matter, in fact it is seen by many to be detrimental to the overall rebuilding plan. We are decidedly in that group of teams in Major League Baseball not trying to win this year. Still, on a... Read more »
