Peavy's injury diagnosis is apparently the best-case scenario

Peavy's injury diagnosis is apparently the best-case scenario
His arm’s still attached to his body, and we’re still attached to his arm // Chicago Tribune Perhaps the White Sox offense is a dead alligator felled by a fanboat in a shallow swamp in the Everglades at the moment.  Still, there’s a positive side to everything; the bullen has stayed out of the press...

The White Sox offense is officially back in business

HOLLAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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 Week That Was - 4/11-4/17: It would be hard to pretend that this wasn't awful

White Sox Week That Was - 4/11-4/17: It would be hard to pretend that this wasn't awful
After a bad week, it’s natural to look for a photo where a player looks foolish. Gordon steps up and fills the role here // Nuccio DiNuzzo, Chicago Tribune Bullpen troubles and some instability in the rotation were very real concerns entering this most middle of the April weeks, but fresh off winning a 4-game...

An early nominee for least enjoyable game of the year

This beach ball is fun, and has no place here // Chris Sweda, Chicago Tribune Saturday’s dull thud of a 7-2 loss to the Angels certainly can’t qualify as the worst lost of the season, as it just didn’t have the emotional whallop of undoing 8 innings of transcendence in the course of 15 minutes. ...

Good night for the scrubs

Good night for the scrubs
Hold your breath // Chris Sweda, Chicago Tribune The White Sox lost 4-3 on Friday night.  It centered around a Brent Morel throwing error in the 4th that prompted a 4-run inning, and also featured Ozzie Guillen deciding to take the bat out of Gordon Beckham’s hands during the team’s last legit scoring chance in...

Off Day, Off Day, Remember to Not Shoot Your Boss Day

Off Day, Off Day, Remember to Not Shoot Your Boss Day
Sit back, relax, and scratch it down // Phil Velasquez, Chicago Tribune White Sox Observer always discourages violence in the workplace, but especially in the continuing cool-down from Wednesday’s afternoon’s three-reliever pileup on the Dan Ryan expressway. It’s OK to feel good again.  After all, you’re a fan of a 7-5 baseball team, or you’re... Read more »

White Sox bullpen situation is...interesting...
This is not a pithy photo caption occasion, people!….Oh fine, it is. Count the number of people with crossed arms staring disapprovingly. HINT: One is hidden // Phil Velasquez, Chicago Tribune My job annoys me (the real one, not whatever this is).  Without getting into it, a rush hour drive from Blue Island to Logan... Read more »

Let's just try to forget all the awful things we did

Alexei swings the great hammer of redemption // Chris Sweda, Chicago Tribune Tuesday night’s A’s-White Sox contest was not a particularly crisp affair.  There were errors, shoddy pitching, gum dropped out of mouths, gum swung at and missed after having been dropped out of mouths, lazy efforts, crappy umpiring, and cold weather…and I was only...

Catching up with U.S. Cellular Field; and by that I mean the alcohol

I’m not going to lie, some of these people are drunk // Jose M. Osorio, Chicago Tribune Being someone who earlier wrote a 1,300-word post on alcohol sales at U.S. Cellular Field, I figured it necessary to provide some new notes on the topic after my first visit to the park on the season.
