Things are not okay

Things are not okay
The manner of baseball the White Sox have been playing recently–light on the baserunners, stingy on the clutch hitting and fresh out of starters who look fresh out on the mound–is a secondary concern. Team performance has shown itself annoyingly capable and willing of turning on a dime, even after everyone is filling buoyed and... 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.

The most important White Sox games aren't against the Twins

  Big 2-run jack to put the team up 11 in the 8th inning! Cluuuuttccchhhh!!
