Overvaluing former White Sox!

Overvaluing former White Sox!
When White Sox players get paid more than they’re worth, or saddled with larger responsibilities than they’re capable of executing, it’s a tragic and sad thing.  When other teams overvalue former White Sox players, it’s hilarious and reminds us of the beauty of freedom.  Sweet freedom. What, Atlanta Braves?  You want Scott Linebrink to pitch which... Read more »

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 »

Are the White Sox worth saving?

Are the White Sox worth saving?
If approached at my seat during the top of the 3rd–right after two pop-ups had been deposited on the short outfield grass by the White Sox defense–I might have been encouraged to say “Eh, not really”.  However, By the end of the evening, the White Sox had rallied on the Tigers thanks to a man...

What a difference a DH makes

Adam Dunn’s no LeBron James, but Cleveland already hates him // Jason Miller, US PRESSWIRE We’re not that far removed from Spring Training, a period of time where players racked up statistics that were best ignored due to the absence of a genuine major league competitive environment. With that in mind, perhaps it would be... Read more »

City of Cold Shoulders - Poor White Sox hitting in April

Sure, it’ll probably look different in June….but not necessarily When I was a young lad, and perhaps, when no one else was looking, my Irish-American father actually referred to me as a “lad”, a White Sox player I had come to trust got off to a pretty piddling start.  Something to the tune of 71...

White Sox player wrap-ups - Mark Teahen

White Sox player wrap-ups - Mark Teahen
We’ll always remember August 13, 2010 as the night the best player on the White Sox and the worst player on the White Sox touched hands and opened that annoying-ass rip in the time-space continuum. Now that we’re headlong into the re-signing period of the off-season, and the hot stove is starting to pump gas... Read more »

White Sox player wrap-ups - Carlos Quentin

You knew it was going to be this picture If there’s a reason I put a “What did we expect?” section into all the wrap-ups (other than to lampoon my preposterous season preview), it’s to properly explain why Carlos Quentin’s good offense-terrible defense season provoked such volcanic rage amongst fans, pundits, and my sister and...

White Sox player wrap-ups - Alex Rios

Yes Alex, this concerns you. Alex Rios wore a lot of titles for the White Sox this season.  He was their only five-tool player, the most impressive athlete, the best waiver acquisition, the first decent centerfielder the team’s had since Aaron Rowand’s not-fully realized potential, and the owner of the most disappointing 2nd half. But... 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...

White Sox-A's Live Game Blog!  Hellloooooo Oakland!
Heh….yyyyeeeeaaaaahhhhh The White Sox are 11 out, they’re only 8 over .500, and they may drop behind the Tigers for 3rd place.  The only way things could get more dire were if Kenny Williams were negotiating a contract extension with Scott Linebrink RIGHT NOW as I type.  Hold on, I’m going to fetch a few...
