Delayed Rationalization - A bad time to be completely uncompetitive

The White Sox really only needed to drag out one win from this high-tension series with Detroit to stay somewhat comfortably ahead.  Even bad teams can muster up winning efforts one out of three times, but such adages don’t apply to games like Saturday night. There was nothing of note coming from the vistors’ dugout,... Read more »

Instant Rationalization - Humber bombed, other elements of the game made irrelevant

Instant Rationalization - Humber bombed, other elements of the game made irrelevant
Like a horror movie villan, the bad, long ball-addicted 2012 version of Philip Humber attacks at any time, and without warning.  And just because he appeared to have been banished to the next world a few days ago, doesn’t he mean he’s ever really gone.

Addison Reed taking ownership of the closer role is the best-case scenario

Addison Reed taking ownership of the closer role is the best-case scenario
Expectations for the 1st year of Robin Ventura as a manager probably need to stay reasonable.  As long he doesn’t let Jake Peavy throw 160 pitches, doesn’t make late-inning substitutions that seem to intentionally make his defense worse, and throws in the occasional keen observation like “Alexei isn’t one of our better bunters”, his learning...
