Instant Rationalization - Runners placed in scoring position, and left there

Instant Rationalization - Runners placed in scoring position, and left there
Considering how little went right, the White Sox really stuck around for quite a while on Wednesday night.  Little fighters, they are. A somewhat egregious mismatch of Chris Sale vs. Bruce Chen marked the night, but both pitchers seemed set on creating their own problems. Sale placed Billy Butler in big-time RBI situations in the...

Pondering a Dunn-less future

Pondering a Dunn-less future
Adam Dunn has missed his last six games, and eight out of his last 11.  His comeback effort has hit a roadblock.  The roadblock is that he’s not getting better. Adam Dunn tried to hit 2x but hasn’t seen enough progress w/ oblique to play. Ventura said was same as Tues & “not worth having... Read more »

Delayed Rationalization - It wasn't a disaster at all

Delayed Rationalization - It wasn't a disaster at all
It’s really not a game against the Royals without needless difficulty, some stretches where basic elements of baseball seem impossible, or a seemingly comfortable win randomly peppered with intense moments. But those were extra dressings on successful elements. The White Sox came into the game with two years of emotional baggage built up against Bruce... Read more »

Instant Rationalization - Division lead swept away

If you wanted to pick a pitching matchup for the White Sox to jump on and grab the one win they needed to leave town with a two-game AL Central lead…it wouldn’t be the one with Justin Verlander in it. Fear of the reigning AL MVP subsided momentarily when Alejandro De Aza led off Sunday’s... Read more »

Here comes that showdown with Detroit you've heard so much about

Here comes that showdown with Detroit you've heard so much about
The Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox start  the first of their two remaining head-to-head series Friday, after each spent the last week kinda killing the buzz of the whole affair. Not killing the buzz for us, obviously.  You the reader–who is either a hyper-partisan Sox fan or at least reading understanding that the target audience... Read more »

The White Sox have a bench? The White Sox have a bench!

The White Sox have a bench?  The White Sox have a bench!
The White Sox scored the decisive runs on Sunday just like you’d expect–Jordan Danks walked and was knocked in by a Tyler Flowers homer. That’s sarcasm, of course.  A little joke for everyone who knows that the White Sox bench spent the first four months of the season being terrible.  Not problematically terrible, since they’re just...

Instant Rationalization - Your typical White Sox comeback victory

Instant Rationalization - Your typical White Sox comeback victory
The White Sox have come back to win 34 of their 69 victories. Almost half. Crazy. — Chuck Garfien (@ChuckGarfien) August 25, 2012 That was after Friday night, so now it’s a perfect split.  Per the playbook of the first two nights of the Yankees series, the Sox spent the first inning trying to play...

Instant Rationalization - Home runs once again prove useful

Of recent, the White Sox offense has come under criticism for being too home run-dependent.  This is one of those fun criticisms, since it inevitably involves nights where the offense dominates via an endless wave of home runs. Wednesday was one of those nights, Thursday was one of those nights!  What fun! Plus, as the... Read more »

Morning notes - Thanks for the memory, Jordan Danks

Morning notes - Thanks for the memory, Jordan Danks
Apparently the White Sox were more than aware of the redundancy of carrying both Jordan Danks and DeWayne Wise on the roster.  They’re sending Jordan back to AAA Charlotte, and replacing him with what was being announced Sunday as “pitching depth”.  In case you were wondering, Jordan Danks’ last at-bat with the team was the...

Delayed Rationalization - Thornton luck ruins plucky comeback story

Delayed Rationalization - Thornton luck ruins plucky comeback story
The recap is late due to the time it took for me to voyage back from Camouflage Hat Night at the park to my Logan Square abode.  The rumpus from around the White Sox-ian internets is that this was a frustrating 9-7 see-saw loss to the Oakland A’s, but what could be frustrating about a... Read more »
