Morning notes: Notes on things other than Chris Sale

Morning notes: Notes on things other than Chris Sale
Orlando Hudson has charmed us all with competent major league at-bats from the 3rd base position, but Brent Morel is on the recovery trail and has a starting job waiting for him if Robin Ventura sticks to his words. Morel took BP, did some exercises, and should be starting rehab work in Charlotte Wednesday, which... Read more »

Instant Rationalization - Indians, Floyd's struggles, all covered up by an ocean of runs

Instant Rationalization - Indians, Floyd's struggles, all covered up by an ocean of runs
A piping hot Memorial Day weekend has transformed U.S. Cellular Field into a launching pad, the White Sox offense into a juggernaut, and yesterday it turned two of the AL’s best starters into tomato cans. So what real chance did struggling hurlers Gavin Floyd and Ubaldo Jimenez have? Floyd continued the erratic pitching that marred... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was: 5/14-5/20 - The Cubs' series makes everything look better

White Sox Week That Was: 5/14-5/20 - The Cubs' series makes everything look better
The 5-2 record the White Sox managed this past week is right up there with the best performance they’ve managed all season.  The weekend triumph against the Cubs was the first three-game sweep since they bested the Mariners on April 20-22nd. A dominant stretch against the crosstown team covered up a disappointing moment where the... Read more »

Indians Preview with Matthew Van Wormer of DTTWLN
This Monday brings about the third series of the season for the White Sox against the Cleveland Indians.  They just so happen to be leading the division, despite the AL Central being betrothed to Detroit at the beginning of the season. To figure out why Cleveland’s been rolling recently, I contacted Matthew Van Wormer of... Read more »

Overnight Rationalization - A really horrible night for Cleveland

Overnight Rationalization - A really horrible night for Cleveland
Late starts coming off of rain delays rarely produce the most crisp baseball.  A combination of players being thrown off their schedule, often missing practice due to the weather, and then being submitted to marsh-like playing conditions can lead to miscues and communication problems. Also unhelpful are large clouds of smoke from fireworks settling over... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was - 4/23-4/29: Great beginning and ending to a terrible, terrible story

White Sox Week That Was - 4/23-4/29: Great beginning and ending to a terrible, terrible story
This week, sandwiched in between two dominant pitching performances by Jake Peavy and Gavin Floyd, was a brutal five game losing streak that saw the Sox dragged back to the rest of the AL Central (we get to say that!) and get shutout twice. Those shutouts also featured dominant pitching performances from Jake Peavy and Gavin... Read more »

AL Central Preview: The only team to fear is the team itself...and the Tigers

AL Central Preview: The only team to fear is the team itself...and the Tigers
Last Spring, I wrote a capsule for every other AL Central team for the purpose of sizing up the competition.  The 2011 White Sox didn’t figure to run away with the AL Central unopposed, but they were serious contenders and it was important to get a handle on just how many games they’d need to win...

The last great Juan Pierre game

The bizarre report of the Tigers being interested in Juan Pierre to fill the gap created by the Victor Martinez injury inspired me to look at his last shining moment in a White Sox uniform.  Click the title to read the post at Southside Showdown.   Follow White Sox Observer on Twitter @ JRFegan and on Facebook

Cleveland Indians Blog Swap!
Other than waited on baiting breath for vague rumors about Mark Buehrle’s contract status, or trying to prod Brett Ballantini into saying something revealing about the media on Twitter, there’s not much going on with the White Sox.  Guess what?  There’s not much going on with the Indians either!  They didn’t even go through a...

Nothing Ever Happened

Nothing Ever Happened
In case you missed it, the White Sox haven’t done anything.  After using their most valuable trade asset merely as a tool to cancel all of Mark Teahen’s August charity events, the White Sox have stood pat.  They’ve neither restocked with young talent nor added a desperately needed competent bat.  As the deadline neared, The...
