Large second wave of roster cuts set to make things fun

Large second wave of roster cuts set to make things fun
Perhaps setting a precedent that all games in which the White Sox get shutout will be followed by a third of the roster being cut, 14 players were sent packing from major league camp Monday. Alright, so perhaps this day was selected weeks ahead of time and several lockers were cleared out prior to the... Read more »

A world where Brent Lillibridge is the White Sox most valuable trade chip

A world where Brent Lillibridge is the White Sox most valuable trade chip
In the middle of the Winter Meetings this past week, Ken Rosenthal let this little curiosity slip out: “…As of mid-afternoon on Wednesday the team had traded only closer Sergio Santos in what many in the industry perceive to be a curious move. And, surprisingly, the White Sox player drawing the most interest was utility... Read more »

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 »

Absent Konerko, White Sox can appreciate how very little they have

Absent Konerko, White Sox can appreciate how very little they have
Strictly speaking, this isn’t the low point of the White Sox season. The Sox were 11-22 at one point, there’s still that no-hitter they endured from a pitcher currently sporting a 4.67 ERA, and on May 31st when Toronto was bashing their heads in by75 runs and Ozzie Guillen just threw in Lucas Harrell to...

Sox get through all of 5 games before carrying six outfielders becomes a bad idea

Well, this is awkward // Christopher Hanewinckel, Chicago Tribune When the Sox decided to not decide between Lastings Milledge and Brent Lillibridge at the end of Spring Training, while I was certainly quizzical of whether they’d be smarter to stock up on bullpen depth due to the fact that one of their starters is Phil...

Thank goodness the White Sox got the hell out of Kansas City

Beckham, trying to rouse Carlos Quentin because he’s UNCONSCIOUS right now…see? I can make corny jokes too // Peter G. Aiken, US PRESSWIRE Short of total evisceration that convinces the opposing owner to close up the franchise, it’s hard to find satisfaction when your favorite ballclub is facing a last place team, or in this...

White Sox Season Preview 2011 - The Defense

White Sox Season Preview 2011 - The Defense
So…hard…to…remain…objective…guh // Jake Roth, US PRESSWIRE It’s a World Series defense. I mean that as a joke, and also because the make-up is eerily similar.  Both the 2011 and 2005 White Sox hide their lumbering sluggers on the right field foul line, both have pretty fantastic defenders on the left side of the infield, a...

White Sox Season Preview 2011 - The Offense

White Sox Season Preview 2011 - The Offense
Get excited for this! // Jake Roth, US PRESSWIRE This should be a pretty simple preview format. 1. Juan Pierre – He’s turning 34 years-old and his game has a lot speed-reliance to it, so the possibility of complete collapse is always on the table.  Other than that, the numbers could be seen as offering...

So now you have six outfielders...

What would we be without Brent Lillibridge? Frankly, it’s not something we’re willing to consider // Phil Velasquez, Chicago Tribune Compromise is easier said than done.  Before analyzing and criticizing the choice that the White Sox were revealed to have made by Jeff Marquez’s empty locker, I should state first that it was a difficult...

White Sox choose pitching depth FTW

White Sox choose pitching depth FTW
“Sure James, I’d love to inspire 9-12 trivial blog posts about roster shuffling” // Phil Velasquez, Chicago Tribune What’s better than one iffy pitcher? Two iffy pitchers to spell one another! With Jake Peavy very, very, very like DL-bound, the White Sox are heading into the final week of Spring Training with three roster spots... Read more »
