Your White Sox playoff rooting interests

Your White Sox playoff rooting interests
One might be so bold as to suggest, that this post is a week or so late, since the divisional round just completed.  But that is nonsense. No one needed my suggestion or influence to latch on to the noble, hopeless causes of the Oakland A’s or the Baltimore Orioles.  That’s just second nature for... Read more »

Alex Rios, Adam Dunn, and their albatross contract brethren

Somehow, a clear winner emerges. The strongest spotty tangential argument could be made for the Giants over... Read more »
