Chris Sale-Zack Greinke pitcher's duel

Some perhaps would not include a game where the Sox offense was shutout over 10 innings on a list of their greatest moments.  But while the lineup was getting overpowered by an entirely worthy foe in former Cy Young winner Zack Greinke, Chris Sale was matching him blow for blow over eight shutout innings of...

Eduardo Escobar's walk-off breaks scoreless tie in the 10th

Eduardo Escobar isn’t a particularly likely offensive hero, but then again, Jose Quintana vs. Michael Fiers wasn’t a particularly likely pitcher’s duel. Sometimes baseball games just creep along without anything happening, and sometimes light-hitting middle infielders just wind up in clutch hitting situations and don’t fail every time.

Morning notes - Happy Chris Sale Day
For the second-straight Friday, Chris Sale will square off against one the best pitchers in the National League, this time it being Zack Greinke of the Milwaukee Brewers.

The White Sox will lose as many Spring Training games as it takes for... Read more »

The White Sox have lowered ticket prices!...kinda...not really
There is one solace for the fan of the disappointingly mediocre baseball team; and it’s not the high draft pick, nor the Dylan Axelrod spot start.  No, it’s the reluctant and marginal rollback of ticket prices. For once, the White Sox did not disappoint.  The reductions were marginal, and maaaaan, were they reluctant: Prices for... Read more »

WSO Playoff Primer - NL

WSO Playoff Primer - NL
In a continuation from the decreasingly analytical AL playoff primer, here’s the WSO NL playoff primer! The National League features a style of play where the pitchers hit, and the game is thus more pure.  It’s not about chubby beer-leaguers swatting home runs, it’s about athletes and real ballplayers winning with pitching and defense, strategy and...
