Kids these days grow up so fast

Kids these days grow up so fast
The Michael Pineda-Jesus Montero trade is pretty irksome for, oh, about three reasons. First, it’s disheartening to see the Yankees fall into a long-term solution for their rotation issues without purging anything that hampers them in any immediate way.  Chances are the 2nd best offense in baseball can figure out a way to stay OK...

The Oakland A's being ridiculously poor really did not help the White Sox trade market

The Oakland A's being ridiculously poor really did not help the White Sox trade market
Initially I had this titled “I hate the Oakland A’s”, but I realized that was too harsh.  It’s more that I’m cross with the A’s due to their current situation–dirt poor, selling all their shiny things for breadcrumbs.  Also, while hating people for being poor may feel as comfortable as slipping into a warm bath for...

Young man's game

Young man's game
Omar Vizquel’s not coming back in 2012, which is one of those announcements that doesn’t really need to happen.  When a 44 year-old utility infielder has every part of his game–except baserunning, strangely–bottom out, it doesn’t exactly merit a press conference, just a calm dismissal of a overly-exuberant Twitter follower.

In the middle of the Winter Meetings this past week, Ken Rosenthal let this little curiosity slip out: “…As of mid-afternoon on Wednesday the team had traded only closer Sergio Santos in what many in the industry perceive to be a curious move. And, surprisingly, the White Sox player drawing the most interest was utility... Read more »

Biggest moments of White Sox' 2011 season

Biggest moments of White Sox' 2011 season
Welcome, gullible person who puts too much stock in article titles! I’ve been preparing for this day for some time.  Ever since I decided that exhaustive reviews of every player wasn’t worth it this year since I’ve been doing post-mortems on 2011 since late August, I knew the White Sox would offer up some nothing...

Buzzsaw of awfulness continues

Buzzsaw of awfulness continues
He looks contemplative…that gives me some comfort. Jeez, am I reaching or what? // Jeff Griffith, US PRESSWIRE It be’s that way sometimes. Statistically, it’s not especially significant that the White Sox lost by being shutout for the first time all season in a dreary, flattening defeat to the possibly resilient Tampa Rays.  Even if...

White Sox-A's Live Game Blog! Hellloooooo Oakland!

White Sox-A's Live Game Blog!  Hellloooooo Oakland!
Heh….yyyyeeeeaaaaahhhhh The White Sox are 11 out, they’re only 8 over .500, and they may drop behind the Tigers for 3rd place.  The only way things could get more dire were if Kenny Williams were negotiating a contract extension with Scott Linebrink RIGHT NOW as I type.  Hold on, I’m going to fetch a few...

White Sox Live Game Blog TONIGHT!
MAXIMUM EFFORT! It’s the last live game blog of the year for White Sox Observer, and it couldn’t come at a less interesting time.  The White Sox have lost a whopping 7 in a row, and are only 5 games closer to 1st place than the Cubs, and the A’s….well….it’s always unclear whether management cares...
