Everybody's Getting Williams'd

Everybody's Getting Williams'd
It’s the second week of February, pitchers and catchers don’t report until next Wednesday.  There’s nothing, man.  Nothing. That in mind, there’s only one recourse for the highly professional White Sox blogger to find a story; type in “white sox” into Google and see if something legit comes up.  Or, see if something else comes...

Disrespecting a veteran

Disrespecting a veteran
Omar Vizquel hasn’t played a whole lot, and if I had to hazard a guess, I would say it’s because he’s been terrible. His .245/.282/.294 line would be rough enough, but he’s paired it with the fielding range of a 44 year-old in a season where the threshold has been a bit more than ‘play... Read more »

A funny headline about pains in Manny Ramirez's pants

Youch! Or not…he can’t tell After a stressful and emotional week where the Sox somehow massively transformed their roster by barely changing it at all, things have just gotten even better for the South Siders. Manny Ramirez has made up for coming over in September and laying an egg! Well he almost has.  Because this... Read more »

Manny Ramirez wasn't what we thought he was

Manny Ramirez wasn't what we thought he was
Unless the first thing you thought when the White Sox picked up Manny off of waivers is “isn’t he still injured?”  Something hasn’t been right with Manny since came over from LA in one of those “Take him, TAKE HIM!” deals.  To his credit, Ramirez hasn’t raised any stink about how happy or unhappy he...

September Swoonin' with the Chicago White Sox.....again

September swoonin’, it happens every daaaaaay Can you hear that sound?  It’s the familiar groan of disappointment coming from the South Side in the crisp, soon-to-be autumn weather.  Listen to it as it slowly fades into nothing as the attendance numbers bottom out in reaction to the White Sox falling like a meteor out of...

How about some power Manny? We here at the White Sox like HOME RUNS

Let’s admit that this looks funny Manny Ramirez is nothing if not an astute, professional hitter.  For someone so wild in appearance, behavior, and mannerisms, who could very possibly be a brilliant psychopath, he is extremely disciplined, and rarely tries to take more than is offered to him by the pitcher.  Late in his fourth...

The White Sox Present...the Carlos Quentin-Manny Ramirez awful defense extravaganza

D’oh! In his day, Ozzie Guillen was hard-nosed, never-say-die player who survived in the majors due to his defense, his hustle, and the fact that no one was paying attention to on-base percentage back then.  Back in 2004, he pledged to create a team in his own image; a squad that played hard, ran hard,...

I'm obligated to acknowledge that Manny Ramirez now plays for the White Sox

  I wrote a couple of Manny Ramirez rumor posts–a tawdry habit I must kick–and after two I resigned myself to say nothing on the matter until it became real. Well, as all reasonably active media outlets are reporting, Manny Ramirez is headed to the White Sox.  I believed the event was best summed up... Read more »

Manny Ramirez placed on the waiver wire - White Sox might do something about it

According to MLBtraderumors.com, Buster Olney of ESPN, and every other baseball writer alive, the Dodgers actually did place Manny Ramirez on waivers on this, the wackiest of Wednesdays. Like most rules concerning player acquisition and payment in baseball, the waiver system is as long, winding, and mysterious as a dark forest path, if at the... Read more »

White Sox Interested in Manny Ramirez?--Why Not?

The White Sox have their share of possible clubhouse cancers (a lot of candidates but I’m mostly referring to Jenks), and they have their share of injury-prone disappointments (a lot of candidates but I’m mostly referring to Jenks), so it’s not as though the addition of the mercurial, heinously un-self-aware Manny Ramirez would exactly represent...
