Morning notes: Notes on things other than Chris Sale

Morning notes: Notes on things other than Chris Sale
Orlando Hudson has charmed us all with competent major league at-bats from the 3rd base position, but Brent Morel is on the recovery trail and has a starting job waiting for him if Robin Ventura sticks to his words. Morel took BP, did some exercises, and should be starting rehab work in Charlotte Wednesday, which... Read more »

Instant Rationalization - There are no easy pleasures in Cleveland

An easy shutdown John Danks outing would have been just too easy of a way for the White Sox to stop their skid.  Not just because Danks skated by all night on hard hit outs, or because the Sox were felt comfortable nursing a 3-0 lead into the later innings while stranding 10 runners against...

White Sox Week That Was: 5/1-5/6 - Not really a particular reason to be happy

White Sox Week That Was: 5/1-5/6 - Not really a particular reason to be happy
This week saw the White Sox post a 2-4 record, while losing both series to division rivals Detroit and Cleveland.  The poor showing slotted the White Sox as firmly into 3rd place as a team can be in a mediocre AL Central where no one has played 30 games yet; they’re three games back. On... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was - 4/23-4/29: Great beginning and ending to a terrible, terrible story

White Sox Week That Was - 4/23-4/29: Great beginning and ending to a terrible, terrible story
This week, sandwiched in between two dominant pitching performances by Jake Peavy and Gavin Floyd, was a brutal five game losing streak that saw the Sox dragged back to the rest of the AL Central (we get to say that!) and get shutout twice. Those shutouts also featured dominant pitching performances from Jake Peavy and Gavin... Read more »

Looking for sources of hope on the roster

Looking for sources of hope on the roster
Lo and behold, the White Sox are a winning ballclub. Thanks to their old friend, the long ball, the Sox defeated the Indians 10-6 on Wednesday afternoon despite forecasts for snow and other Cleveland-related weather maladies. As John Danks’ control took the early flight back home, for the first time the Sox deviated from what... Read more »

White Sox Weekend That Was - 4/6-4/8: It's to be expected

White Sox Weekend That Was - 4/6-4/8: It's to be expected
Perhaps I’m revealing myself as a cynic, but the White Sox dropping 2 out of 3 to the Rangers in their opening series registers as…oh, alright. Sunday night’s offering to a national TV audience was a rather hopeless dud, but the other two games were one-run toss-ups waged against the defending AL champs.  They almost... Read more »

Cleveland Indians Blog Swap!

Cleveland Indians Blog Swap!
Other than waited on baiting breath for vague rumors about Mark Buehrle’s contract status, or trying to prod Brett Ballantini into saying something revealing about the media on Twitter, there’s not much going on with the White Sox.  Guess what?  There’s not much going on with the Indians either!  They didn’t even go through a...

“Hey Sergio, nice j–HEY LOOK, A GUY IS WEARING ZUBAZ PANTS OVER THERE!!” // Ezra Shaw, Getty Images Three series victories in a row!  A 4-2 week!  A 6-3 West coast road trip!

White Sox Week That Was 4/1-4/3: Fits and starts while no one watched

Yes, high-fives are deserved, just uh…keep your pants on, will ya? // Jason Miller, US PRESSWIRE In most–well, all really–opening series, fans learn little about the identity of their team.  However, it becomes a lot harder to discern even a coherent initial impression from a team that flies around between extreme amounts of dominance in...

Untrue story, this is one of a series of Luis Valbuena motivational posters // Chris Sweda, Chicago Tribune It is worth mentioning that this is the 2nd part of what is essentially a 5-part series of previewing teams in the AL Central.  The team previews are in ascending order of where I expect them to...
