6th starters, assemble!

6th starters, assemble!
It’s just another day in bizarro-land, where Jake Peavy and Chris Sale sit 1-2 for the White Sox team lead in innings, and middle rotation members struggle to keep all of their muscles in working order.  At present, the following issues are at the forefront. Gavin Floyd underwent an MRI on his right elbow Thursday that... Read more »

White Sox trade for Francisco Liriano: Yeah, alright

White Sox trade for Francisco Liriano: Yeah, alright
In a trade so under-the-radar that it was originally broke by the White Sox official twitter account, the Sox dealt Eduardo Escobar and Pedro Hernandez for Twins starter Francisco Liriano. Liriano will presumably come right into the starting rotation, giving the Sox the ability to not only rest Chris Sale as they feel is needed,... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was - 7/16-7/22 - Obviously, that was a disaster

White Sox Week That Was - 7/16-7/22 - Obviously, that was a disaster
There’s a reason that so many have stressed that there is a lot of baseball left–67 games to be precise–after Sunday’s loss and sweep completion in Detroit. It’s a truth, and it’s also a coping mechanism, and coping mechanisms are assembled in response to disasters.  In a single seven-day period, the Sox went 1-6, dropped... Read more »

So, you've punted a game...

So, you've punted a game...
To recap the point I’m set to belabor–on Wednesday night, the White Sox started Pedro Hernandez. They sent a future middle reliever who isn’t even ready for such a role yet to face the still-capable Red Sox offense in Fenway Park, and looked on as he suffered a predictably grizzly fate. Everyone involved in the... Read more »

Saving up for the weekend

Saving up for the weekend
Philip Humber made his return to the starting rotation Tuesday night.  It wasn’t spectacular, but perfect game aside, all the best memories of Philip Humber are of him being unspectacularly effective.  He threw strikes, and didn’t compound any of his problems with extra base-runners. In fact, it was Humber’s only walk-less outing of 2012 besides... Read more »

Gavin Floyd and John Danks aren't walking through that door...

Gavin Floyd and John Danks aren't walking through that door...
As it would happen, waiting for Gavin Floyd’s tendinitis to subside will be more of a 15-day type of affair than initially hoped.  According to Mark Gonzales, Floyd has “experienced discomfort throwing off-speed pitches”, and since those are the key to his existence as a major leaguer, that’s plenty reason to shut things down. A DL... Read more »

Large second wave of roster cuts set to make things fun

Large second wave of roster cuts set to make things fun
Perhaps setting a precedent that all games in which the White Sox get shutout will be followed by a third of the roster being cut, 14 players were sent packing from major league camp Monday. Alright, so perhaps this day was selected weeks ahead of time and several lockers were cleared out prior to the... Read more »

Ventura drops some hints on the lineup/roster/future

Ventura drops some hints on the lineup/roster/future
Monday brings about the first competition against an actual other professional baseball club for the 2012 White Sox.  While it will still be a functionally useless Spring Training game with the thousands of factors that compromise the results that every Spring Training game has, it will at least be more exciting to see Dayan Viciedo...

Happy New Year's, and oh, hey, Quentin's gone

Happy New Year's, and oh, hey, Quentin's gone
I was just putting some things together for New Year’s Eve, buying absurd amounts of tonic, assembling plastic champagne flutes, etc…and oh hey!  Carlos Quentin got traded to the Padres for two minor league pitchers!  Awwwww crap, that probably merits a post. Good luck making a clear conclusion out of this one, though.  There’s enough... Read more »
