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...

This Week In White Sox: Oh That Just Sucked!

This Week In White Sox: Oh That Just Sucked!
Just when you think it couldn’t get any worse, the White Sox reeled off an eight game losing streak.  It started last week, but the better part of it was during this week.  They did it in just about every way possible; they got blown out; they lost close games; the pitching was bad; the...

Beckham: He Gone

Beckham: He Gone
How often is a headline so good at SEO and a horrible play on words?  Sorry I just couldn’t pass it up.  Alas, it does sum things up pretty well.  Beckham is gone from the White Sox, looking for a fresh start in sunny California.  It is safe to say, for the White Sox anyway,... Read more »

Gordon Beckham and Defense: Who to Believe?

Gordon Beckham and Defense: Who to Believe?
I don’t think of myself as a particularly strong sabermetric guy, but I also don’t write off numbers simply because I’m not familiar with them or I don’t quite understand them.  Similarly, I wouldn’t say I’m a devotee to traditional notions about baseball either.  Too often that line of thinking relies on outdated and often...

Series 12 White Sox v. Diamondbacks: I Was Hoping For More

Series 12 White Sox v. Diamondbacks: I Was Hoping For More
Great to get to my second game of the season, even greater to get to it with my kids.  I’ll write more about that later, mainly because the pace is killing me right now.  In my civilian life, things don’t get much crazier than the past week and this week.  I get busy at other... Read more »

Series 11 White Sox v. Cubs: Classic

Series 11 White Sox v. Cubs: Classic
The White Sox took three of four from the Evil Chicago Cubs.  My life is validated.  I am whole.  I can lord this thrilling victory of the Crosstown Cub over two thirds of the Chicago baseball loving public.  My White Sox Fan brethren and I an proudly jut our collective jar out to the world...

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...

White Sox at the Trading Deadline. Any Takers?

White Sox at the Trading Deadline. Any Takers?
When I say possible, not probable it is on both ends of the spectrum.  There are guys who could be traded, but realistically finding a partner for a marginal talent is a tough trick to pull off.  Then there are guys who could be traded, but the price that the White Sox should be asking...

2013 White Sox Opening Day! What is Old is Gone Again.

2013 White Sox Opening Day! What is Old is Gone Again.
Well that was pleasant.  The White Sox won the home opener 1-0 over the Kansas City Royals yesterday and I had the pleasure of being in attendance.  It was cold, but not too bad in the sun, the company was good and hey, baseball is back. I did find the overwhelming enthusiasm on the post-game... Read more »

Your 2013 Chicago White Sox Gordon Beckham (Preview #5)

Your 2013 Chicago White Sox Gordon Beckham (Preview #5)
Gordon Beckham has turned a corner, really, it says so right here.  He is at peace with himself and feels like he belongs with the major league team.  He is even hanging out with Paul Konerko.  If that isn’t a sign of better things to come, I don’t know what is.  I’m not particularly sure...
