Alejandro Anxiety

Alejandro Anxiety
After a mere three games missed while on the active roster–seriously, check out the madness going on with Denard Span–Alejandro De Aza is headed to the DL for whatever is causing his oblique soreness.  Comcast Sports Net keeps pairing the announcement with the clip of De Aza bellyflopping onto 2nd base Friday night.  It looks...

Pre-game Ouch Update - Everyone spent Saturday night in an ice tub

Pre-game Ouch Update - Everyone spent Saturday night in an ice tub
It’s mid-August, and everyone’s banged-up. The White Sox are old, and that doesn’t help, but most of the regulars have played over 100 games (A.J.’s stuck on 99, but everyone agrees that catching full-time is essentially self-mutilation).  Playing in Saturday night’s slop-fest probably didn’t help anyone. Improbably, Paul Konerko is fine after spending the minimum... Read more »

Morning notes - Thanks for the memory, Jordan Danks

Morning notes - Thanks for the memory, Jordan Danks
Apparently the White Sox were more than aware of the redundancy of carrying both Jordan Danks and DeWayne Wise on the roster.  They’re sending Jordan back to AAA Charlotte, and replacing him with what was being announced Sunday as “pitching depth”.  In case you were wondering, Jordan Danks’ last at-bat with the team was the...

Life without Paulie

Life without Paulie
Fitting in with his seemingly gradual recovery from concussion symptoms, Paul Konerko has been placed on the special 7-day DL that exists just for that injury. The 7-day concussion DL is an odd one.  It’s not retroactive for missed time, so Konerko is not eligible to return until next Friday.  Also, there was significant reference... Read more »

An interesting time for Hector Santiago to get demoted

An interesting time for Hector Santiago to get demoted
Francisco Liriano and Rey Olmedo being added to the roster meant that someone needed to exit from the bullpen to make room for Philip Humber, even if he’ll probably never actually sit down there. With the bullpen holding two semi-effective lefty rookies, Leyson Septimo and Hector Santiago seemed to be the two men at risk,... Read more »

Ouch update - Everyone's arm is in a sorry state

Ouch update - Everyone's arm is in a sorry state
Since running through an update of the injuries on this team as it careens into the stretch run is likely to completely replace ‘Morning notes’ as a regular feature, and ‘M*A*S*H* unit’ as an article title might offer too much of an approximation of war injuries with the physical problems associated with throwing a ball...

Jhan Marinez is the corresponding move

Jhan Marinez is the corresponding move
Deunte Heath being sent down to AAA right before the All-Star break dropped the roster count down to 24, and Philip Humber is set to take his roster spot for a start on Tuesday. But that’s Tuesday.  It is presently Friday.  Philip Humber is of no use this weekend. Hence, Jhan Marinez. Marinez is yet... Read more »

So long Bruney, we barely knew ye

Brian Bruney has been placed on the disabled list with hip inflammation after making all of one appearances with the major league club (but he warmed up plenty of times!). That one appearance was pitching the 10th inning of the Sunday’s walk-off win against the Brewers, and offered the full Bruney experience–he walked two, struck... Read more »

Morning notes: Still just watching the Viciedo home run video on repeat

Morning notes: Still just watching the Viciedo home run video on repeat
In case you missed it… Viciedo turned around a high fastball for his 14th home run of the season, and gave the White Sox a 4-3 lead they would cling to for a series-opening win in New York Thursday night.  It was a pretty great moment.  You almost wish there wasn’t a game every day,... Read more »

You won't have Will Ohman to call the radio station about anymore

You won't have Will Ohman to call the radio station about anymore
Apparently the White Sox wanted two more innings eaten by Will Ohman before they swore him off for good. After he filled in the final two innings of Wednesday’s blowout win to rather poor effect, Ohman outpaced an expected team announcement on his roster status by reporting that he was gone and giving his farewells to...
