Pitchers & Catchers - Forced to interact!

Pitchers & Catchers - Forced to interact!
[Edit: It has come to my attention that White Sox pitchers and catchers don't actually report until tomorrow, February 23rd.  By "come to my attention", I mean that every other Sox blogger I read was operating under the correct date, and I inexplicably opted to go with the information from some website dedicated to Spring Training...

Much Better Moments in White Sox History: Gordon's Big Break

Much Better Moments in White Sox History: Gordon's Big Break
The reception for the first game retrospective was positive, and I was very appreciative for all the kind words.

White Sox Season Preview 2011 - Know Your AL Central Competition - Kansas City

This amusing picture probably represents the most memorable contribution Mitch Maier will provide this season // John Sleezer, McClatchy-Tribune The Royals suffer the ignominy of the first preview because while a lot of positive things could happen for this club this season, winning the division doesn’t seem like one of them.  This team is by...

Starting Brent Morel at 3rd base

Starting Brent Morel at 3rd base
More than any other major sport, rookies and prospects are coddled in baseball.  The inordinate propensity for super-talented prospects to just up and become Paul Wilson for no reason has spooked teams into spending a lot of time figuring out how to expose their young prodigies to the cruel world. The ideal practice? Platforming; which... Read more »
