A Solution for Tanking

A Solution for Tanking
As I watch a not very good, but still too good White Sox team I have come to a conclusion. I don’t like rooting for my team to lose. It’s just counter intuitive. When a game is played, the point is to win, or at least root for the win. Watching and not caring about... Read more »

Kaufmann Goes 0 for 2

Kaufmann Goes 0 for 2
Last year, the White Sox invited a bunch of bloggers to a phone conference with Rick Hahn and Buddy Bell. I was a bit star struck by it all. Mostly because Buddy Bell was the poster every kid had where and when I grew up. I pretty much spent the entire call biting my lip,... Read more »

2017 White Sox: What I'm Watching

2017 White Sox: What I'm Watching
After the big trades (and here’s to a few more) the off-season was a quiet one for the White Sox. Though the media covers both teams, and I would say pretty fairly, the spotlight is on the Cubs, and rightly so. Good, young teams and reigning champions are hard to ignore. When I open the...

Been A While

Been A While
What is the point of this blog? That has been on my mind a bit lately. Since I started it, back in 2012 (wow, almost 5 years!) I had a general idea of what the point was, or better said what it wasn’t. I knew then, and still know, that I can’t write a summary... Read more »

The Chicago Cuckoos!

The Chicago Cuckoos!
You may or may not be familiar with the cuckoo bird. It is a species of bird that looks for empty nests of other bird species and lays its eggs in the unoccupied nest. Bascially, the other species does all the work of building the nest and the cuckoo swoops in and uses it for... Read more »

Spiting Ones Face or Not Trading With The Cubs

Spiting Ones Face or Not Trading With The Cubs
There was a bit of a minor story around yesterday, as all stories around the White Sox are these days. The story even managed to generate a bit of a kerfuffle on Twitter. Again I strain to call it more than that considering there are about five people on Twitter that follow and comment on... Read more »

The Ricky Renteria Era Begins

The Ricky Renteria Era Begins
I was pretty convinced that Robin Ventura would be out as White Sox manager once the season ended. I thought, naively I admit, that the White Sox would conduct some kind of search even if the wheel would stop on the Ricky Renteria square. Instead I didn’t even get to do my blurbs on Ron...

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 »

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...
