Rising and falling relievers

Rising and falling relievers
In order to spare him a tough matchup in an inning that had already been through a rough start, Addison Reed replaced Matt Thornton in the bottom of the 8th Tuesday night, and ended the evening with a quite rare four-out save. The interplay brought both relievers’ ERA’s to 3.83 on the season, which is... Read more »

Much Better Moments in White Sox History - Gavin Floyd announces his presence with authority

Much Better Moments in White Sox History - Gavin Floyd announces his presence with authority
In the shiny new Baseball Prospectus’ Annual for 2012, Gavin Floyd’s player comment starts out with “Blessed with the best stuff on the staff”, which is a fun little reminder since he spent most of 2011 refining his hard slider into more of a cutter, trading whiffs for control.  The comment went on to say...

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...

Much better moments in White Sox History - The Blackout Game

Much better moments in White Sox History - The Blackout Game
Perhaps I’m a bit of a sap, but all this talk of rebuilding and possibly competent attempts to be competitive are kind of, well, sad.  Ripe for uproarious mockery for sure, but still kind of sad.  In an effort to pep things up, and being the proud owner a robust iTunes gift card, I’d though...

The best White Sox news is fake

The best White Sox news is fake
It’s too bad that the Gavin Floyd-to-the-Blue Jays trade rumor never got picked up by any credible media outlet.  Rumors are a blast, especially ones that would blatantly indicate a full-scale rebuild, and especially one that comes in January, the month where fun dies in the cold, because it turns out fun was homeless this entire...

You missed so much stuff!!!

You missed so much stuff!!!
This would be one of those lulls of sorts in the White Sox news cycle.  So much so that I don’t even have anything to add to that thought.  It’s a lull.  Luuuullllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllz. Waiting for trades has offered a lot of time to ponder just what kind of pie-in-the-sky type scenario with the current roster... Read more »

Six years ago...and very much right now

Six years ago...and very much right now
On October 26th, 2005, the Chicago White Sox captured their first World Series in 88 years.  For any team, winning a championship is a stand-alone moment in franchise history, but perhaps more so for the White Sox. Their triumph was not a culmination of years of buildup, and despite a formidable 2006 squad, did not... Read more »

Sergio Santos is a made man

Sergio Santos is a made man
14 months later after it premiered, it’s still hard to dissociate Sergio Santos from the  teary-eyed version of himself on The Club, overcome with emotion at having made the team at the back of the bullpen. It was pretty sympathetic moment.  Then a 26 year-old man, Santos had been watching his professional prospects dwindle for... Read more »

The White Sox don't have a very imaginative bullpen

This is how Matt Thornton innings end now, understand?!?! // Nuccio DiNuzzo, Chicago Tribune Chris Sale is the goat of Tuesday night.  In the 8th inning, with the Sox up 6-4, he threw a 2-run homer to Billy Butler, tying the game, and dooming the rest of the night to typical White Sox-Royals extra-inning tragedy/horror....

White Sox Season Preview 2011 - They should win

White Sox Season Preview 2011 - They should win
Well, as it should be made obvious by me leaving them to the end of my AL Central preview, I’m taking the White Sox for the divisional crown this season.  Despite having an offense that had production at the DH slot that most teams wouldn’t appreciate from their catcher, the Sox finished 6th in the...
