Delayed Rationalization - Thornton luck ruins plucky comeback story

Delayed Rationalization - Thornton luck ruins plucky comeback story
The recap is late due to the time it took for me to voyage back from Camouflage Hat Night at the park to my Logan Square abode.  The rumpus from around the White Sox-ian internets is that this was a frustrating 9-7 see-saw loss to the Oakland A’s, but what could be frustrating about a...

A trade of great concern

A trade of great concern
Ultimately, in a baseball season, a team has to worry about themselves.  Get to 90 wins, then start worrying about standings and divisional strength. Monday night was all about righting the ship against the Twins; Bad Gavin stumbled through six positively garish-looking innings, but the offense stirred to life and toppled a familiar tormentor in...

Too wild

Too wild
In Wednesday’s 6-3 loss to the Indians, Philip Humber continued to pay back the fates for the great control he was blessed with during his perfect game.  He lacked command and control for the second straight start and walked a career-high six batters. Through it all, Humber was just a misplay by Beckham and a hanging... Read more »

Everybody's Getting Williams'd

Everybody's Getting Williams'd
It’s the second week of February, pitchers and catchers don’t report until next Wednesday.  There’s nothing, man.  Nothing. That in mind, there’s only one recourse for the highly professional White Sox blogger to find a story; type in “white sox” into Google and see if something legit comes up.  Or, see if something else comes...

Overvaluing former White Sox!

Overvaluing former White Sox!
When White Sox players get paid more than they’re worth, or saddled with larger responsibilities than they’re capable of executing, it’s a tragic and sad thing.  When other teams overvalue former White Sox players, it’s hilarious and reminds us of the beauty of freedom.  Sweet freedom. What, Atlanta Braves?  You want Scott Linebrink to pitch which... Read more »

Well, at least they got rid of Frasor

Well, at least they got rid of Frasor
This is what happens when no one invites Kenny Williams to any New Year’s parties. January 1st brings yet another trade, and this one doesn’t even need to be rationalized! Jason Frasor wasn’t particularly good with the White Sox, and $3.75 million is a bit pricey for an ineffective reliever.  So much so that most... Read more »

The Oakland A's being ridiculously poor really did not help the White Sox trade market

The Oakland A's being ridiculously poor really did not help the White Sox trade market
Initially I had this titled “I hate the Oakland A’s”, but I realized that was too harsh.  It’s more that I’m cross with the A’s due to their current situation–dirt poor, selling all their shiny things for breadcrumbs.  Also, while hating people for being poor may feel as comfortable as slipping into a warm bath for...

Selling low on Gordon Beckham

Selling low on Gordon Beckham
By now you’ve probably heard Gordon Beckham’s name bandied about in trade rumors pertaining to the White Sox rebuilding effort. It’s notable because it’s not everyday you hear “Trade the 25 year-old cost-controlled 2nd basemen!” during a rebuilding effort, and because it wasn’t that long ago that Beckham was capable of acting as the centerpiece...

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 »

This is why we don't have meetings

This is why we don't have meetings
This past Tuesday and Wednesday, the Chicago White Sox held organizational meetings for the first time since 2007.  Why they waited so long is a matter for debate. Tuesday, November 8th, 8:00 AM (Scottsdale, AZ) Kenny Williams: First of all, let’s all thank Paul for allowing us use of his rumpus room on such short... Read more »
