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 »

So long Bruney, we barely knew ye

Brian Bruney has been placed on the disabled list with hip inflammation after making all of one appearances with the major league club (but he warmed up plenty of times!). That one appearance was pitching the 10th inning of the Sunday’s walk-off win against the Brewers, and offered the full Bruney experience–he walked two, struck... Read more »

Instant Rationalization - This pitcher's duel doesn't sting

Instant Rationalization - This pitcher's duel doesn't sting
Going into the 10th inning without knowing where the scoring is coming from is a familiar, and unwelcome feeling for the South siders. For the second straight Sunday, the White Sox couldn’t deliver Jose Quintana a win after eight shutout frames, as Milwaukee fill-in starter Michael Fiers stepped in from the bullpen and baffled White...

Friday roster turnover - Humber to DL, Bruney up, Fukudome DFA'd

Friday roster turnover - Humber to DL, Bruney up, Fukudome DFA'd
One of the keys to the success of the 2012 White Sox was avoiding a thorough exploration of their lack of depth. On that note, this Friday is not a particularly good day.

Jesse Crain's oblique is inconvenient

Jesse Crain's oblique is inconvenient
After a right oblique strain in Spring Training dragged him out of what was apparently a very wide open closer race, Jesse Crain is having trouble with the same muscle, but on his left side this time.  He’s been out since Friday, which has led to the current stretched situation where Nate Jones finds himself...

White Sox Season Preview - Bullpen

White Sox Season Preview - Bullpen
Ready or not, it’s time to assess how the 2012 White Sox bullpen can be expected to perform. This post will go up no sooner than March 30th, and it is likely that a complete understanding of who will possess each role will not be revealed for a few days yet. Still, think of all... Read more »

Only a few more days of this Spring malaise

Only a few more days of this Spring malaise
Real, major league baseball has been making isolated appearances in the Eastern hemisphere this week, and the bright lights from the spectacle only serve to put this shoddy Arizona facsimile of the game into unflattering relief.  When will all the dingers mean something?  When can we start freaking out about Dayan Viciedo for real?  What is Ray...

Large second wave of roster cuts set to make things fun

Large second wave of roster cuts set to make things fun
Perhaps setting a precedent that all games in which the White Sox get shutout will be followed by a third of the roster being cut, 14 players were sent packing from major league camp Monday. Alright, so perhaps this day was selected weeks ahead of time and several lockers were cleared out prior to the... Read more »

Ventura drops some hints on the lineup/roster/future

Ventura drops some hints on the lineup/roster/future
Monday brings about the first competition against an actual other professional baseball club for the 2012 White Sox.  While it will still be a functionally useless Spring Training game with the thousands of factors that compromise the results that every Spring Training game has, it will at least be more exciting to see Dayan Viciedo...
