White Sox Week That Was - 7/16-7/22 - Obviously, that was a disaster

White Sox Week That Was - 7/16-7/22 - Obviously, that was a disaster
There’s a reason that so many have stressed that there is a lot of baseball left–67 games to be precise–after Sunday’s loss and sweep completion in Detroit. It’s a truth, and it’s also a coping mechanism, and coping mechanisms are assembled in response to disasters.  In a single seven-day period, the Sox went 1-6, dropped... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was: 7/2-7/8 - Splendid performance with little reward

White Sox Week That Was: 7/2-7/8 - Splendid performance with little reward
In what was perhaps the most impressive week of White Sox baseball all year, the South siders swept the best team in the AL, set aside their traditional woes against the Blue Jays, and came within one terribly-played slugfest on Sunday from a perfect week. For that, they increased their division lead just a single... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was: 6/25-7/1 - Job done, in strange ways

White Sox Week That Was: 6/25-7/1 - Job done, in strange ways
Facing a series against the last place Twins, and an exhaustive four-game weekend tilt with the Yankees, the White Sox obligations were clear: win the first series, hold their own in the latter. 4-3!  Mission accomplished!  Though, in odd fashion. Offense Two games this week saw the White Sox offense crank out 26 runs combined;... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was: 5/21-5/27 - Oh boy, offense

White Sox Week That Was: 5/21-5/27 - Oh boy, offense
Offense Saturday saw the White Sox establish a new season-high for runs scored with 14, topping their previous high of 11–which they set on Thursday–and two higher than their 2nd highest mark of the season (12) which they accrued on Sunday. Of the five best offensive performances by the White Sox this season, four of... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was: 5/7-5/13 - Up and down, black and white

White Sox Week That Was: 5/7-5/13 - Up and down, black and white
I can’t find the exact quote, but a player made a comment during SoxFest about the most frustrating part of last season being the inability of the team to sustain a stretch of good play.  After all, he longest winning streak of the 2011 season was five. While the Sox have plenty of time to... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was: 5/1-5/6 - Not really a particular reason to be happy

White Sox Week That Was: 5/1-5/6 - Not really a particular reason to be happy
This week saw the White Sox post a 2-4 record, while losing both series to division rivals Detroit and Cleveland.  The poor showing slotted the White Sox as firmly into 3rd place as a team can be in a mediocre AL Central where no one has played 30 games yet; they’re three games back. On... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was - 4/23-4/29: Great beginning and ending to a terrible, terrible story

White Sox Week That Was - 4/23-4/29: Great beginning and ending to a terrible, terrible story
This week, sandwiched in between two dominant pitching performances by Jake Peavy and Gavin Floyd, was a brutal five game losing streak that saw the Sox dragged back to the rest of the AL Central (we get to say that!) and get shutout twice. Those shutouts also featured dominant pitching performances from Jake Peavy and Gavin... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was - 4/16-4/22: Sweep away the pain
(We’re going to try to make these weekend chunks of information, and WSO in general, more split up and easier to digest.  So expect the weekly recaps to be more team-centered, and rather than splitting off about random storylines, those will now get their own posts) It’s amazing how a distracting bit of weekend entertainment...

White Sox Week That Was - 4/9-4/15: Overwhelmingly positive

White Sox Week That Was - 4/9-4/15: Overwhelmingly positive
In this instant-reaction world full of judgmental blogs like this one, teams are often thought of as being no better than their most recent dull thud against an average-ish sinker-baller.  Sunday’s effort against Rick Porcello and defensive betrayal of Chris Sale certainly left a lot to be desired, but far from undid the work of...

White Sox Weekend That Was - 4/6-4/8: It's to be expected

White Sox Weekend That Was - 4/6-4/8: It's to be expected
Perhaps I’m revealing myself as a cynic, but the White Sox dropping 2 out of 3 to the Rangers in their opening series registers as…oh, alright. Sunday night’s offering to a national TV audience was a rather hopeless dud, but the other two games were one-run toss-ups waged against the defending AL champs.  They almost... Read more »
