Well, this is getting interesting

Well, this is getting interesting
After topping the Tigers 5-1 Saturday, the White Sox have won four in a row, are 5-2 on the season, and in 1st place in the AL Central.  If the excitement over this development seems a bit over the top for 7 games into the season, consider the last two Aprils. In 2011, the Sox... Read more »

Alex Rios, Adam Dunn, and their albatross contract brethren

Alex Rios, Adam Dunn, and their albatross contract brethren
Jake Peavy is the highest paid player on the 2012 White Sox. Thaaaat doesn’t make me feel great, but there’s only one more season before a nice, comfy buyout awaits him in 2013. The next two highest paid players are Adam Dunn (who’s got a $2 million raise coming for this year) and Alex Rios.... 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 »

Kenny Williams sums up 2011 White Sox season in a nutshell

Kenny Williams sums up 2011 White Sox season in a nutshell
After a full season’s worth of mediocrity, at the cost of $127 million, an easy conclusion to make might be that the White Sox are a collection of not especially cheap, mediocre players. Costly mediocre players aren’t especially popular on the trade market, so Kenny Williams’ continued efforts to complete a comprehensive rebuild exclusively through... Read more »

Middle relief, utility infielders, these are not the holes to throw your money into

Middle relief, utility infielders, these are not the holes to throw your money into
Between the Penn State debacle of moral failings, Wilson Ramos getting friggin’ kidnapped, and the inanity of the NBA lockout, it’s become clear that while there are White Sox outrages, they don’t resonate with the top outrages of the sports world at large.  Perhaps the White Sox are a lot more competent than anyone realized....

Biggest moments of White Sox' 2011 season

Biggest moments of White Sox' 2011 season
Welcome, gullible person who puts too much stock in article titles! I’ve been preparing for this day for some time.  Ever since I decided that exhaustive reviews of every player wasn’t worth it this year since I’ve been doing post-mortems on 2011 since late August, I knew the White Sox would offer up some nothing...

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 »

Dunn is easy enough to demote

Dunn is easy enough to demote
Before Monday’s game, Ozzie Guillen sat down with Adam Dunn, and somehow got down to explaining that his historically bad offensive season will be costing him anything resembling regular playing time for the last month. “The talk was good. Very professional. Very respectful.” Guillen said. Ozzie is surely open to criticism, but his player management... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was 7/25-7/31 - Now there are six less games

White Sox Week That Was 7/25-7/31 - Now there are six less games
The White Sox went 3-3 on the week, which isn’t so bad.  Especially considering the fact that the competition was two division-leaders in Detroit and Boston, and that .500 is the rendezvous point where all-three AL Central contenders gather to share iced teas and the day’s gossip. Still, two games under .500 and four back... Read more »

Nothing Ever Happened

Nothing Ever Happened
In case you missed it, the White Sox haven’t done anything.  After using their most valuable trade asset merely as a tool to cancel all of Mark Teahen’s August charity events, the White Sox have stood pat.  They’ve neither restocked with young talent nor added a desperately needed competent bat.  As the deadline neared, The...
