Delayed Rationalization - Unusual sources of stability

Delayed Rationalization - Unusual sources of stability
Grabbing wins, reducing the magic number, and moving on to the next one is all that matters from here on out.  So maybe just saying that the Sox won, and Detroit lost should be enough. But ESPN had that information hours ago, so let’s indulge. The hope was that Hector Santiago could deliver the game... Read more »

Alejandro Anxiety

Alejandro Anxiety
After a mere three games missed while on the active roster–seriously, check out the madness going on with Denard Span–Alejandro De Aza is headed to the DL for whatever is causing his oblique soreness.  Comcast Sports Net keeps pairing the announcement with the clip of De Aza bellyflopping onto 2nd base Friday night.  It looks...

Instant Rationalization - Floyd exorcises demons, Reed hangs on for dear life

Instant Rationalization - Floyd exorcises demons, Reed hangs on for dear life
Gavin Floyd didn’t have much on his side going into Tuesday night’s game.  Already mired in a pretty terrible season that was just starting to turn around, Gavin had to face the Twins. The Sox hadn’t just lost the last eight games he started against the Twins, but Floyd had been tagged with the decision... Read more »

Instant Rationalization - Peavy gets Twinned

Instant Rationalization - Peavy gets Twinned
Jake Peavy allowed eight hits and three runs in the first three innings of the night against the Minnesota Twins.  The first part of that sentence would make it sound like Jake got shelled, the last two words give away that something else was amiss. Denard Span legitimately had Peavy’s number, crushing two doubles deep... Read more »

AL Central Preview: The only team to fear is the team itself...and the Tigers
Last Spring, I wrote a capsule for every other AL Central team for the purpose of sizing up the competition.  The 2011 White Sox didn’t figure to run away with the AL Central unopposed, but they were serious contenders and it was important to get a handle on just how many games they’d need to win...

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...

Hot Stove Watch - Day 52 Recap

Hot Stove Watch - Day 52 Recap
First and foremost, news was passed down by the man with his ear to the street, the inside source on all things White Sox–team beat writer Scott Merkin!  Surely his article responding to reader emails has a scoop buried in it! “…don’t think Williams will move players just to move them. However, after looking at... Read more »

Charlotte Knights get 'revenge' on Twins

Charlotte Knights get 'revenge' on Twins
Last year, I attended the first and third games of last September’s 3-game set with the Minnesota Twins. In other words, I was there when the 2010 White Sox got put in the ground.  They would have been demoralizing losses for the consequences alone, but with the Twins racking up 25 runs against the Sox’...
