Instant Rationalization - Humber yields dingers, opens floodgates as Sox drop series to Astros

Instant Rationalization - Humber yields dingers, opens floodgates as Sox drop series to Astros
Sunday offered the Philip Humber experience in all its tortured glory.  He simultaneously flashed his compliment of plus breaking pitches, at one point striking out five consecutive Houston Astros.  He also made horrible mistakes over the plate that resulted in three home runs, including a blast by fourth outfielder Justin Maxwell down the left field...

White Sox Week That Was: 5/28-6/3 - This week's episode features lots of wins

White Sox Week That Was: 5/28-6/3 - This week's episode features lots of wins
For the most part, the White Sox spent the week riding the hot streak that last weekend’s emphatic offensive demolition of then-1st place Cleveland kickstarted. Floyd has been terrible, Danks is hurt, Philip Humber has an ERA over 5.00, and the one loss this week featured 10 runs being allowed to the Seattle Mariners, whose offense...

September calling to the minor leagues

September calling to the minor leagues
Between Ramon Castro trying to catch a pitch barehanded, A.J. Pierzynski racing in front of Bruce Chen fastball, Carlos Quentin diving into the ground shoulder-first, and Tony Pena tearing ligaments out of his own elbow, the Chicago White Sox veterans conspired to take the excitement out of September call-ups.

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...

NOW FOR ALL TO SEE – Ozzie Guillen as a man capable of getting slightly miffed. // Scott Strazzante, Chicago Tribune (Quick question, do you use the possessive (‘s) for Sox?  Is it a plural or a singular?  Do any rules apply seeing as it’s…you know, not a real word?) Any refutation of the Cubs-Sox... Read more »

White Sox Spring Training defers its first set of dreams

White Sox Spring Training defers its first set of dreams
The White Sox said ‘no’ to this face? This face? This ****ing face!!? // Jose M. Osorio, Chicago Tribune We would all like to think that we love baseball for the intrinsic qualities of the game.  Its wonderful mix of trends, probability, and random chance, the athleticism, the strategy, its raw visual splendor.  But if...

White Sox Season Preview 2011 - Positional Battles

White Sox Season Preview 2011 - Positional Battles
Morel may look innocent, but really he’s engaged in brutal warfare of the mundane and pre-determined variety // Phil Velasquez, Chicago Tribune Positional Battles are generally something bad teams have.  To have a spot on the field up in the air going into Spring Training means you have no strong incumbent, then you followed that...

Osorio, Chicago Tribune In a move perhaps more foreshadowed than Harmonica (Charles Bronson) killing Frank (Henry Fonda) at the end of Once Upon a Time in the West after three hours of shooting all...
