Guaranteed Rate Field Is A Horrible Name

Guaranteed Rate Field Is A Horrible Name
Well, that’s one way to stay in the news, I suppose.  In a season where the de facto slogan is “mired in mediocrity” where the Little GM and the Big GM can’t get along, the manager can’t wait for October and the best player is a petulant child, the White Sox have chosen as their... Read more »

At A White Sox Crossroads

At A White Sox Crossroads
If you read the last post, you know I, like the White Sox themselves, have pretty much written off 2016.  Turn out the lights, come back in February 2017 and get worked up for another season.  To be honest, after 2015 and that hypefest gone south, there wasn’t much coming into 2016.  The way the...

The End Of the Season As Far As the White Sox Are Concerned

The End Of the Season As Far As the White Sox Are Concerned
Oh, hey there!  How’ve you been? Me? Good, good.  Not spending much time on the White Sox these days, I must say.  I mean considering that since Rick Hahn made his proclamation on July 21 about being “mired in mediocrity” and then proceeded to do nothing, I don’t see the point. I don’t know about... Read more »

The Case Against The Rebuild

The Case Against The Rebuild
I have advocated for years now that the White Sox need to abandon their current modus operendi, that of splash dash, nip tuck and pray for luck.  Maybe a couple of spare parts and old bit can make a contender out of the solid pitching we are getting from Chris Sale and Jose Quintana.  It...

Is Rick Hahn Good At His Job?

Is Rick Hahn Good At His Job?
When Hahn was hired/promoted to the White Sox general manager position in the fall of 2012 it was greeted with wide praise.  Much had been reported about Hahn’s behind the scenes work in contract negotiations and how he was on the short list of potential GMs around the league.  As we round into the fourth...

White Sox Making Moves But Do They Matter?

White Sox Making Moves But Do They Matter?
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: The White Sox have acquired an aging, probably past his prime player, who, if the stars align and lightning is caught, could help the White Sox push into the playoffs, or dare we hope, further.  Describing the acquisition of Justin Morneau, Steve Stone even used the words...

Every Game! Longest Streak Ends

Every Game! Longest Streak Ends
5/23/16 Indians 5 White Sox 1 It took a double header to do me in, but that’s what got me this time. Again too busy gaming.  I thought for sure I’d be finished before the White Sox were finished, but that was not the case in more ways than one.  Erik Johnson is quickly making... Read more »

Every Game! An April To Remember

Every Game! An April To Remember
The old saw about sporting seasons is that it can’t be won at the beginning, but it can be lost.  On it’s face, that seems true.  In the case of baseball a good spring is often met with shrugs and talk of the long summer ahead.  I have to say, however, after so many slow... Read more »

Every Game! The Wrong Time

Every Game! The Wrong Time
White Sox 1 Rays 0 4/15/16 (streak at 2) So I tuned in a little late in the game tonight, but it was still 0-0.  The White Sox didn’t do much in the top of the seventh and the Rays didn’t do much either.  However, the bottom of the seventh saw one of the worst... Read more »

Every Game! The First Streak Ends

Every Game! The First Streak Ends
4/13/16 White Sox 3-0 I was brought down by two werewolves.  Well, actually we brought down the werewolves but I didn’t catch any of the White Sox game on Wednesday.  I was playing Dungeons and Dragons with a majority of Cubs fans listening to their game.  I did track the game on Gameday, but that...
