Afternoon notes - Who cares about next year? How many of us will still be alive?

Afternoon notes - Who cares about next year?  How many of us will still be alive?
The 2013 schedules were released Wednesday, opening up a dangerous line of thinking. To begin thinking about 2013 is to begin thinking about how the White Sox will manage to be competitive next season.  Option years are coming up for Youkilis, Peavy, and Floyd. Konerko, Dunn, and Pierzynski are another year older….and A.J. doesn’t even... Read more »

Jhan Marinez is the corresponding move

Jhan Marinez is the corresponding move
Deunte Heath being sent down to AAA right before the All-Star break dropped the roster count down to 24, and Philip Humber is set to take his roster spot for a start on Tuesday. But that’s Tuesday.  It is presently Friday.  Philip Humber is of no use this weekend. Hence, Jhan Marinez. Marinez is yet... Read more »

Morning notes: Stories unrelated to the All-Star Game

Morning notes: Stories unrelated to the All-Star Game
Making a natural transition from talking about the All-Star Game, the White Sox and Cubs are probably going to be playing four games next season, instead of their usual six. As a partial-season-ticket holder, I was initially excited by the prospect of having the chance to avoid being obligated to buy a hyper-expensive Cubs-Sox game every... Read more »

This is the Rios we want

This is the Rios we want
Whether it’s the curse of the five-tool player being inflicted upon him, or the curse of Alex Rios being inflicted on others, ascribing the proper expectations upon the 31 year-old outfielder has always been a challenge. Toronto was excited at how his tools and athleticism would age enough to sign him through 2014 when he... Read more »

Morning notes: New players, better than the old players

Morning notes: New players, better than the old players
The White Sox have agreed to terms with their backflipping 1st round pick OF Courtney Hawkins for the full bonus allotment for his draft slot.  The deal is not official until Hawkins passes his physical, which might explain why Courtney tweeted this: For the record I have not signed any type of paper work or anything...

Don't look now, but Jake Peavy...

Don't look now, but Jake Peavy...
Getting suckered in by Jake Peavy has become a South side past time in the past three years, and part of me wonders whether Ozzie only left so he could start up a ‘Getting Suckered in by Jake Peavy’ regional office in Miami. After dominating the Orioles Wednesday night to the tune of 7 IP,... Read more »

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 »

White Sox Season Preview - Catchers

White Sox Season Preview - Catchers
On Thursday against the Rangers, Adam Dunn homered and doubled.  He homered off of Neftali Feliz, and hit the double off of a lefty.  A left-handed pinata, but still, a lefty.  Gordon Beckham also homered (a bomb).  Hector Santiago struck out three Texas Rangers in two innings, including Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz. It’s very... Read more »

Those rare times when Spring Training talk rings true

In my continuing effort to be nicer, and not dismissive of the 2012 White Sox until hard evidence appears, I looked back at some of the times in recent team history where the empty, optimistic pre-season talk that we often dismiss turned out to be spot-on.  Click the title to read on Southside Showdown as...

Rios and Dunn and the new order

Over at Southside Showdown, I wrote about how Robin Ventura might have just as strong of a need to stick by Alex Rios and Adam Dunn, despite how abominably awful that sounds.  Click the title to follow the link, and tell me if it doesn’t work, because it might tick me off enough to quit...
