White Sox around the world

White Sox around the world
If I really wanted to, I think I could squeeze a third post out about Kosuke Fukudome signing on to be the 5th outfielder, but it’s probably not the best thing for anyone involved or in the surrounding area.  Additionally, the video for the classic White Sox game I was going to write a retrospective...

Overvaluing former White Sox!

Overvaluing former White Sox!
When White Sox players get paid more than they’re worth, or saddled with larger responsibilities than they’re capable of executing, it’s a tragic and sad thing.  When other teams overvalue former White Sox players, it’s hilarious and reminds us of the beauty of freedom.  Sweet freedom. What, Atlanta Braves?  You want Scott Linebrink to pitch which... Read more »

If not Pierre, than who else? A White Sox roster mystery

If not Pierre, than who else? A White Sox roster mystery
If you’ve ever been to a political rally or protest, you’re familiar with the the typical physical by-product: fliers.  Leaflets are distributed en masse for a variety of loosely affiliated causes at every turn, and even though you have no interest in any of them and turn down plenty, your hands are full at the...

I understand the Beachy for Quentin rumors, but I'd just as soon not

I understand the Beachy for Quentin rumors, but I'd just as soon not
The Sox just lost to the Royals 5-3 as they withered under a barrage of hittable fastballs, let’s talk about something interesting. Mike Cafardo of the Boston Globe (I guess they have inside information on all Sox teams, or something) reported that the White Sox sent Special Assistant to the GM Dave Yokum to Atlanta...

White Sox get rid of Scott Linebrink, and an angel gets its wings

White Sox get rid of Scott Linebrink, and an angel gets its wings
There’s a temptation when your least favorite player of the past few years is traded away–in a trade that seems to be made purely for the sake of getting rid of him–to kinda…go nuts.And I did.  You know, the whole bit…screaming, crying, hugging people I don’t know…which is really bad because I work in a...

As the Pitching Goes, So Go the White Sox; and the Pitching Goes Really, Really Well

So far this season the White Sox have shown two teams to the viewing public.  The first team, the veritable family member made to stay in their bedroom during dinner parties, fields poorly,  hits a lot of homers but struggles to score runs, get on base, or convert opportunities, and has starters who pitch like...

Wild, White Sox Wednesday Night

Wednesday night’s gritty triumph over the Braves and their ace Tim Hudson was so very wild and untamed (alcohol was served all the way throughout the two-hour rain delay and up until the 6th inning….think about it), that I may have just come home and fallen asleep, rather than actually get to writing anything about...

Braves' Starter Hansen's Debacle Ruins Delays ChiSox' Chance to Prove Selves

After a week and a half of slaughtering hapless NL teams as they begged for mercy, and another two games of contributing to the larger misery of the metropolitan area of Detroit (right before they took off), the White Sox were supposed to get a dose of reality Tuesday night with a showdown against what’s...

It's About To Get Real for White Sox

It almost seems like bad manners to bring this up right now, but the four teams that the White Sox just reeled 10 wins in 12 games against are 126-151 combined, and that’s with the suddenly hot Tigers included and the moribund Cleveland Indians left out.   The White Sox caught fire and saved their...

White Sox Season Begins Again

This is not meant to state that the White Sox can forget about all that’s happened and that all their sins are forgiven, as much as it is to say that the momentum developed up to this point is about to get pretty meaningless.  At .500, the Sox can officially no longer take joy in... Read more »
