Saturday morning cart--er, White Sox notes

Saturday morning cart--er, White Sox notes
In the end, Adam Dunn broke his promise to Hawk Harrelson, and failed to win the AL Comeback Player of the Year award.  Between this and the 2011 post-All-Star break pact he made with Alex Rios to save the season, it might be time to start taking Dunn’s solemn, steely-eyed vows with a grain of...

Another troubling update from old friend John Danks

Another troubling update from old friend John Danks
Not that long ago, John Danks’ return to the rotation was set to be the big trade deadline addition to the starting rotation.  It wasn’t the jazziest sales line of all time, but since the alternative was Francisco Liriano, a Danks 2012 return can reside in the realm of tortured White Sox fantasies. But now... Read more »

Your Monday update on easily anticipated White Sox news

Your Monday update on easily anticipated White Sox news
Since suddenly transforming into a team that couldn’t drive in runners and coughing up the division, the White Sox have been very light on the surprises. Rick Hahn made his much-rumored about ascent to the GM seat immediately after the close of the season, initiating a waiting game to find things out about Hahn’s style,... Read more »

Morning notes: Sweeping up the mess

Morning notes: Sweeping up the mess
Everyone has been making their random selection of “tough losses that really killed the Sox”.  In honor of the series currently being played on the North side of town between two 100-loss teams, I would offer that dropping four games combined against the Cubs and Astros (all at home) really killed the Sox, since they currently trail...

Pondering a Dunn-less future

Pondering a Dunn-less future
Adam Dunn has missed his last six games, and eight out of his last 11.  His comeback effort has hit a roadblock.  The roadblock is that he’s not getting better. Adam Dunn tried to hit 2x but hasn’t seen enough progress w/ oblique to play. Ventura said was same as Tues & “not worth having... Read more »

Afternoon notes - Who cares about next year? How many of us will still be alive?

Afternoon notes - Who cares about next year?  How many of us will still be alive?
The 2013 schedules were released Wednesday, opening up a dangerous line of thinking. To begin thinking about 2013 is to begin thinking about how the White Sox will manage to be competitive next season.  Option years are coming up for Youkilis, Peavy, and Floyd. Konerko, Dunn, and Pierzynski are another year older….and A.J. doesn’t even... Read more »

A relatively small baseball fan base puts its hope in Gavin Floyd

A relatively small baseball fan base puts its hope in Gavin Floyd
Gavin Floyd is being thrust from the disabled list into one of the most important games of the season Wednesday, presumably willingly.  He’s returning from his second inactive stint due to a right elbow flexor strain that makes it hard for him to snap off his sliders and curves without discomfort. At the time, this... Read more »

Sale velocity anxiety

Sale velocity anxiety
So many posts with “anxiety” in the title.  If being a fan of a team that stays in 1st place for over a month but never gets more than one bad series out of harm’s way could be boiled down to one word, it would be “anxiety”.  Of course, the word for the Tigers’ season... Read more »

Your latest update in the White Sox starter shuffle

Your latest update in the White Sox starter shuffle
It’s not a time of the greatest feelings about the White Sox starting rotation.  A sturdy rock holding firm amidst a river of sadness in previous seasons, this year has seen the rotation’s two mainstays go down, a wave of seemingly unqualified youngsters, and many, many injuries and ailments to manage. There’s a source of... Read more »

Everybody's working for the weekend

Everybody's working for the weekend
The White Sox are making overt efforts to save up their best punch for this weekend’s showdown with Detroit–they’ve cued up the best raw stuff on the squad with Peavy, Liriano and Sale, and given them all rest, in various kooky ways. Peavy’s spot against Baltimore is getting skipped to hide away Dylan Axelrod replacing... Read more »
