Every Game! Gutted

Every Game! Gutted
5/10/16 Texas 13 White Sox 11 The English have a great term for a great disappointment or great loss, or both I suppose; gutted.  After a rain delay and a promising 10-5 lead, the White Sox gave up seven runs in the bottom of the eighth and that was that.  There is something about blowing...

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...

Every Game: Home Opener

Every Game: Home Opener
4/8/16 Indians 7 White Sox 1 I’d have to look at my old ticket stubs, but it’s been a few years since I’ve hit the home opener.  After seeing the weather for today’s game, I’m not sorry.  I’m sure at some point I’ll go again, but snow and baseball are not the best mix.  Checking... Read more »

Every Game!

Every Game!
Yep, you read right, I am going to watch or listen to at least one inning of every White Sox game this season.  I feel pretty good already, having gone three for three to open the season.  I’m pretty sure four for Oakland is doable because the game starts while I’m still at work and... Read more »

Gearing Up For the 2016 Season: Blogging Goals

Gearing Up For the 2016 Season: Blogging Goals
I try and keep up with my fellow White Sox bloggers, I really do.  There is a lot of good stuff out there.  Thank God I’m not a Cubs blogger.  I’d probably just sit at me computer and weep at all of the information to take in on a daily basis.  Even with my smaller... Read more »

Gearing Up For the Season: Shortstop and Third Base

Gearing Up For the Season: Shortstop and Third Base
Making our way around the horn* we get to the big upgrade and the big question mark. In the off-season the White Sox made a significant upgrade at third base by acquiring Todd Frazier in the three-way trade with the Reds.  Last year Frazier hit .255/.309/.498 with 35 home runs, a career high.  He is...

Gearing Up For The 2016 Season: Catchers

Gearing Up For The 2016 Season: Catchers
Spring training is almost over and as the teams ramp up for the regular season, it’s time for all of us bloggers in the basement to start getting ready as well.  In year’s past, I entitled these posts Fun With the Bill James Handbook, but I decided to take the plunge and subscribe to Baseball...

Whither Robin Ventura?

Whither Robin Ventura?
In the whole Adam LaRoche saga one question that keeps coming up in my mind is, “Where is Robin Ventura?”  He spoke recently about how the team will get past the situation. I’m not quite sure how that is going to happen under Ventura’s leadership.   According to Barry Rozner the 2015 White Sox were, “Without... Read more »
