Instant Rationalization - So, those problems aren't going way

Instant Rationalization - So, those problems aren't going way
With the Tigers having already weathered the disappointment of a blown lead and earning a walk-off victory earlier in the day, the stage was set for the White Sox to continue their quiet descent into that good night. It was indeed quiet, because the opener of the final home series of the season failed to... Read more »

The best of the White Sox 1st half

Scott Merkin wrote a great piece on the White Sox playoff hopes as they look to the second half.  If anything, I like it because he confirms that my cynicism from before the season was well-founded.  As Merkin puts it, the White Sox needed a mountain of ‘if’s’ to go their way this season to...

Five-run 6th inning rallies Sox past James Shields

The White Sox offense seemed to be all out of hot streak mid-way through their May 29th game in Tampa.  Against the work of James Shields, they had been limited to a single run, and were befuddled by the changeup Shields had rode to a complete game win against Chicago the previous year.

Reacting to the latest Quintana episode

Reacting to the latest Quintana episode
There’s really not a red flag that Jose Quintana hasn’t raised during his meteoric rise to prominence in the White Sox rotation.  He was unheralded as a prospect, released by another team, has a hard time hitting more than 91 mph, and is lucky on balls in play and stranding runners.  All the seeds for...

Winter Meetings thus far recap: Maybe everyone is lying

Winter Meetings thus far recap: Maybe everyone is lying
Falling asleep without writing a recap of Day 1 of the Winter Meetings seemed like a forgivable sin, as teams spent the bulk of the day circling each other curiously, Kenny Williams didn’t show up till nearly dinner time, and the Matt Capps contract can only be mocked so much. As of Tuesday, the White... Read more »

Biggest moments of White Sox' 2011 season

Biggest moments of White Sox' 2011 season
Welcome, gullible person who puts too much stock in article titles! I’ve been preparing for this day for some time.  Ever since I decided that exhaustive reviews of every player wasn’t worth it this year since I’ve been doing post-mortems on 2011 since late August, I knew the White Sox would offer up some nothing...

White Sox Week That Was - 4/18-4/24: THE DAMAGE IS QUITE SEVERE

White Sox Week That Was - 4/18-4/24: THE DAMAGE IS QUITE SEVERE
The White Sox run per game average // Chris Sweda, Chicago Tribune (h/t: The Dugout) Well, skin me alive and call me lunch.  The White Sox are 8-14. After posting a 1-5 week, most teams would reflect on their deeds, be horrified beyond measure, and steel themselves to ensure it didn’t happen again.  Not the... Read more »
