The White Sox Passive-Aggressive Bullsh*!

The White Sox Passive-Aggressive Bullsh*!
I am firmly ensconced in middle age. At this point I’ve held a number of jobs, some good, some bad.  I’ve worked for good people, flakes and bullies. But none of those boss-types drove me to distraction as much as the passive-aggressive boss. You may be working for them right now. The person who ends... Read more »

Kenny Williams Is In Charge, Just Ask Him

Kenny Williams Is In Charge, Just Ask Him
As the White Sox pile up the losses and the blame for why the team is so bad is being spread around, but mostly falling on Robin Ventura, one person has stepped forward to take accountability.  On Saturday, Kenny Williams in an interview with Paul Sullivan, said that ultimately he is responsible for the White Sox...

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: 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...

The Power of an Empty Stadium

The Power of an Empty Stadium
I’ll get to last week in another post, but things in Baltimore have demonstrated the importance of baseball, which is to say that it isn’t that important at all.  Sadly, I’ve seen a few remarks on twitter about how the postponement of the games has screwed up a fantasy team or two, just in case...

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...

Fun With the Bill James Handbook: White Sox Relievers

Fun With the Bill James Handbook: White Sox Relievers
If there is one area that is hard to forecast, it is the White Sox Relievers.  More and more often, pitchers are only pitching in very limited amounts sometimes only to one batter.  It makes the past season’s numbers kind of screwy.  A guy could have a terrible ERA, but it’s only because he had...

2014 White Sox: Not As Bad As You Think

2014 White Sox: Not As Bad As You Think
From a post at the end of the 2013 White Sox season: Lastly, looking toward 2014, don’t expect too much.  The White Sox definitely have begun an austerity campaign.  They are going with youth, shedding payroll and I can’t imagine they will be spending much on free agents, and really why would they? I don’t... Read more »

Series Recaps: Knowing When to Say When

Series Recaps: Knowing When to Say When
So there I was, being the dutiful homeowner and dad.  I was priming the house, cleaning up the porch and doing various other chores around the house.  I noticed the collection of cable wires going this way and that on the side of the house and earlier in the summer I managed to get a... Read more »
