White Sox Player Previews: Jose Abreu

We have come to the last.  The player I’ve been most intrigued by and the player I’ve anticipated the most since he was signed in the off-season.  Since this preview is two weeks into the season, many of my expectations have already been met.  The scouting reports seem pretty accurate at this stage: a very...

White Sox Player Previews: Adam Eaton

White Sox Player Previews: Adam Eaton
We all have rules, codes we live by, things that help s make sense and order to our rules.  Some are pretty universal; don’t cheat, don’t hurt others, be nice to animals (except the ones we eat, but even then, I’ve never been mean to a cow.)  Then we get into the much more arbitrary... Read more »

Series 4: White Sox v. Indians: Winning Cures A Lot

Series 4: White Sox v. Indians: Winning Cures A Lot
The White Sox beat the Indians 3-1 in a four game series this weekend! In the grand scheme of a 162 game season, it isn’t that big of a deal, especially before Tax Day.  The Indians, however, beat the White Sox in fourteen straight games last year, on their way to a 17-2 record against...

White Sox Player Previews (2015): Avisail Garcia

White Sox Player Previews (2015): Avisail Garcia
Well, this is the first preview of 2015.  Avisail Garcia was one of the three players I was most excited to see for the entire 2014 season, along with Adam Eaton and Jose Abreu. We did get a preview of Garcia in 2013 after arriving via the Jake Peavy trade last July.  He was ok... Read more »

Series 3 White Sox v. Rockies (Horror Baseball Show)

I just want to skip talking about the first and third games of this series.  I just want to bask in the 15-3 softball game that was game two.  I want to go back on my DVR and watch that at bat, you know the one, where Jose Abreu sees 13 pitches and hits his... Read more »

White Sox Player Previews: Alexei Ramirez

White Sox Player Previews: Alexei Ramirez
Things are moving right along in my player previews, even a week into the season I still think we can talk about expectations and what we might expect to see from the White Sox.  If you haven’t noticed, I’ve really upped the out put these last few weeks at White Sox and Stuff and two feelings...

Series 2 White Sox v. Royals. KC Blues

I must admit, I still have to get my head around the Kansas City Royals being one of the better teams in the AL Central.  It’s been so long since the Royals were even remotely relevant that my memory of George Brett is in sepia tones.  The White Sox didn’t look particularly bad in the...

White Sox Player Previews: Gordon Beckham

White Sox Player Previews: Gordon Beckham
It seems like only yesterday that Gordon Beckham was the fresh-faced youth coming up in May to provide a spark to a lethargic team.  We all rocked out when his 1980s walk-up music, “Your Love” by the Outfield.  According to some publications he was rookie of the year (Andrew Bailey won the major award.)  The...

Series 1: White Sox v. Twins. A Nice Start

I already wrote about opening day and my time away from the ball park and as you might guess, I didn’t make it to the ball park for the other two chillfests that occurred.  If you went, more power to you, but my days of dreary, frozen April baseball (excluding opening day if I can... Read more »

White Sox Player Previews: Tyler Flowers

White Sox Player Previews: Tyler Flowers
The debut of Tyler Flowers at the major league level went so well that the White Sox had to call up Josh Phegley mid way through the season in hopes of getting any production out of the catcher position.  As mentioned a few posts ago, that didn’t work either.  In spring training, fairly early on,...
