White Sox miss out on baseball, Guillen

White Sox miss out on baseball, Guillen
The White Sox Tuesday night tilt with the Indians was called off on account of cold, wind, rain, snow, and it being April in Cleveland.  Things don’t figure to get much better in time for tomorrow’s scheduled 11 AM CDT getaway day time, but it’s still scheduled to go on. Philip Humber’s getting skipped in... Read more »

Pitchers & Catchers - Forced to interact!

Pitchers & Catchers - Forced to interact!
[Edit: It has come to my attention that White Sox pitchers and catchers don't actually report until tomorrow, February 23rd.  By "come to my attention", I mean that every other Sox blogger I read was operating under the correct date, and I inexplicably opted to go with the information from some website dedicated to Spring Training...

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 »

As the lat turns...

As the lat turns...
Forgive me, as I’m playing catch-up on this one due to sickness.  I still don’t know why my company thought it would be best to poison their employees at the Christmas lunch, but from what I can tell, this not-having-a-appetite thing is going to be a real financial boon for me.  I’ve spent $6 on...

Winter Meeting Wrap-Up: League reels upon itself, melts; White Sox react "Eh, let's see where this goes"

Winter Meeting Wrap-Up: League reels upon itself, melts; White Sox react "Eh, let's see where this goes"
If Day 3 of the Winter Meetings were defined primarily–for White Sox fans at least–by crushing loss and the rolls of cookie dough that were eaten to cope with it, Day 4 was defined by Angels owner Arte Moreno dousing the free agent market in gasoline, lighting it aflame, and then laughing as he flew...

Goodbye, #56

Goodbye, #56
Mark Buehrle leaving doesn’t seem like it should have the immediately flooring impact that it does. For one, his departure was telegraphed beyond the realization that he was the 2nd best starter available in three agency, to when the White Sox decided they would play the same high-stakes game of letting him hit the market...

Winter Meetings thus far recap: Maybe everyone is lying

Winter Meetings thus far recap: Maybe everyone is lying
Falling asleep without writing a recap of Day 1 of the Winter Meetings seemed like a forgivable sin, as teams spent the bulk of the day circling each other curiously, Kenny Williams didn’t show up till nearly dinner time, and the Matt Capps contract can only be mocked so much. As of Tuesday, the White... Read more »

Market for Buehrle may be moving too fast for White Sox

Market for Buehrle may be moving too fast for White Sox
There are several reasons why Mark Buehrle isn’t expected to re-sign with the White Sox.  For one, they have half the league to compete with, which can really work to drive the price up, dont’cha know.  Also–sidestepping a discussion of how he got to the point of being up for market value–perhaps a veteran starter...

Ozzie makes it easy, White Sox hire a Paddy

Ozzie makes it easy, White Sox hire a Paddy
It’s still kind of weird to read a story about “manager Ozzie Guillen”, and realize it’s not White Sox-related, but rather pertaining to some strange southeastern franchise that has Chris Volstad on it. Luckily, there’s a feature with ESPN the Magazine where Tim Kurkjian seemingly allowed Guillen to speak extemporaneously on the often-addressed topic of... Read more »
