Morning notes: Hopefully none of this will require surgery

Morning notes: Hopefully none of this will require surgery
The bulging disc in Brent Morel’s back won’t require surgery, putting him on much more of a week-to-week timeline in his recovery rather than month-to-month.  Since Robin Ventura is steadfast that Morel won’t lose his job due to injury, Orlando Hudson should be sure to keep sharp at all infield positions. However, the description of... Read more »

There are more Conor Jacksons where that came from

There are more Conor Jacksons where that came from
This year and the next couple, depending on the fate of a few drafts and a Marco Paddy-led international scouting initiative, “depth” will be a oft-cited weakness of the White Sox organization.  With a barren farm system and a payroll that’s still weighing rather heavy, it’s going to be a tall task to find suitable...

Welcome Eduardo Escobar into your hearts, but not necessarily the field

Welcome Eduardo Escobar into your hearts, but not necessarily the field
A sweeping, decisive round of roster cuts were announced Tuesday.  The prolonged process of ‘getting a looksie’ at Jordan Danks, Josh Phegley, Jim Gallagher, and Tyler Saladino ended, and so did the spirited attempts to snag a major league minimum salary by Dan Johnson and Dallas McPherson. With Ozzie Martinez already removed from camp without... Read more »

One wacky, highly encouraging Spring day

One wacky, highly encouraging Spring day
Often in observing Spring Training stats–besides the desire to just absorb all of it at face value–there’s an inclination to disregard the negative, but take some cautious joy in the positive occurrences.  None of it is supposed to predictive of regular season performance, so your favorite player going 0-for-Spring Training can be waived off (thankfully),...

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 »

Thankful for the White Sox

Thankful for the White Sox
Happy Thanksgiving!…still.  In keeping with the spirit of the holiday, I’m going to take this special time out to try to say something nice about every player who donned a White Sox uniform in 2011.  Here goes! (holds breath) Thanks Dylan Axelrod!: For providing the thrill of seeing someone who looks exactly like my friend Joe... Read more »

Middle relief, utility infielders, these are not the holes to throw your money into

Middle relief, utility infielders, these are not the holes to throw your money into
Between the Penn State debacle of moral failings, Wilson Ramos getting friggin’ kidnapped, and the inanity of the NBA lockout, it’s become clear that while there are White Sox outrages, they don’t resonate with the top outrages of the sports world at large.  Perhaps the White Sox are a lot more competent than anyone realized....

Who needs Buehrle when we have each other?....and Brian Bruney

Who needs Buehrle when we have each other?....and Brian Bruney
It’s odd to realize that Buehrle is a first-time free agent.  The stress-athon of will-he-or-won’t-he be traded in 2007, where a couple starts in a row had the potential to be Mark’s last with the franchise far out-rivaled Tuesday’s news that Buehrle was meeting with the Miami Marlins as far as a source of anxiety....

Do you want Kenny Williams scouring the free agent market?

Do you want Kenny Williams scouring the free agent market?
Kenny Williams said “we’re going to let the kids play”, and predictably it caused some panic. First of all, “What kids?”. Second, it represented a sizable departure from the typical White Sox mode of roster-building. While it’s definitely a bad series of events that brought the South Siders to this stage, exactly how bad is... Read more »
