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...

Hot Stove Watch - Day 32: "Is thing on?...I smell gas, but I don't hear anything clicking"

Hot Stove Watch - Day 32: "Is thing on?...I smell gas, but I don't hear anything clicking"
It would appear that the GMs of the league have for the most part remained doggedly dedicated to waiting until next week’s winter meetings to get into the crazy trading and signing frenzy that, well, traditionally happens in the winter meetings. A new CBA that promised to–and did–completely re-shape the nature of free agent compensation... Read more »

Brent Lillibridge and the future

Brent Lillibridge and the future
Looks like fun… // William DeShazer, Chicago Tribune Brent Lillibridge is clubbing the ball at present, that much is obvious.  Through the 6th inning Sunday he had a line of .302/.392/.605 with 4 HRs in a scant 52 plate appearances.  That’s combined with being the fastest player on the team and a heckuvalotta range and...

This house is on fire - Lastings Milledge's run and the final outfield spot

Really? Really? This is the best picture we have of Milledge?!? Really? // Phil Velasquez, Chicago Tribune As has been angrily reiterated several times, Spring Training stats don’t mean all that much.  Certainly not for players with established baselines for regular season performance, but also because of the tiny sample size and the mixed-level of...

White Sox player wrap-ups - Jayson Nix & Brent Lillibridge

White Sox player wrap-ups - Jayson Nix & Brent Lillibridge
‘Dive’ into 1600 words on sub-replacement White Sox utility infielders I have always found baseball players more relateable than athletes who play basketball or football.  Maybe it’s because they’re not freakishly large or tall, maybe it’s because the rate of success for elite prospects seems smaller and leads to less lifelong primadonnas, maybe because the...

Jason Nix Claimed By Cleveland - Cleveland Reacts With Horror

I like Jayson Nix…well, sort of.  He hit for good power back in the day (last year), and always seemed to be trying hard.  Obvious displays of effort are a good thing to have if you want to endear yourself to fans while flailing helplessly because you’re a natural 2nd basemen who’s been jammed into...

Dayan Viciedo Promoted/Jayson Nix Demoted/Moon Explodes/Film at 11!!!!!

In a move that’s initially shocking but becomes extremely reasonable upon second glance, the White Sox have promoted slugger-in-training Dayan Viciedo and demoted Jayson Nix.  Who knows what the hell prompted this move to happen now, maybe Ozzie checked the team batting stats for the first time all season, and spit out his post-game vodka...

Omar Vizquel is Playing a Lot

When Mark Teahen broke the finger that he presumably uses to Twitter as his dog, Jayson Nix probably thought an ocean of playing time was awaiting him.  Hell, even Brent Lillibridge likely had aims of seeing almost 10 starts during the 6 weeks that Mark Teahen is on the shelf for breaking a finger on...

Jayson Nix Goes From Goat to G.O.A.T. - White Sox Defeat Rays 8-5

Alright, well obviously that’s an intentionally preposterous overstatement.  Jayson Nix is probably still the 25th best player on the Chicago White Sox roster.  A roster which isn’t particularly great.  Yet when your cruddy back-up 3rd baseman comes in the middle of the game to replace your cruddy starting 3rd baseman, and hits a grand slam...

I Would Hate For You To Have Nothing

I’m posting this late, late Thursday night with the knowledge that I won’t have internet all weekend.  But I figured that my comments would probably be in line with this mournful, but comedic song in the wake of the first game against the Marlins.  Especially if Ozzie decides to rest the best player on the...
