White Sox Week That Was 9/19-9/25 - Huh? What? Baseball?

White Sox Week That Was 9/19-9/25 - Huh?  What?  Baseball?
The season lost most of its trappings of purpose weeks ago, and the games have really strove to match the appropriate tenor.  Good on them! A sleepy offensive effort against Fausto Carmona was followed by two straight wins in Cleveland, including a sterling come from behind win in the second-half of Tuesday’s doubleheader to save...

White Sox Week That Was 9/12-9/18 - If the games don't matter, why bother winning any of them?

White Sox Week That Was 9/12-9/18 - If the games don't matter, why bother winning any of them?
The White Sox playoff chances were shot in the chest and thrown into a meat locker two weeks ago, so the exact purpose of their remaining slate of games isn’t the easiest thing to pin down. Should they play youngsters with reckless abandon, and focus on figuring out the 2012 starting lineup?  Should they passionately... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was 9/5-9/11 - Baseball of marginal consequence, varying interest, featuring matching uniforms

White Sox Week That Was 9/5-9/11 - Baseball of marginal consequence, varying interest, featuring matching uniforms
I drove to Cincinnati over the weekend to visit a dear friend.  During my voyage it was quickly made apparent to me that living in Chicago does not necessarily mean I understand The Midwest.   Then again, the sample I drew out was fairly worthless.  Most of the state of Indiana does not resemble the selected...

White Sox Week That Was 8/22-8/28 - What a shame it is to leave Seattle

White Sox Week That Was 8/22-8/28 - What a shame it is to leave Seattle
The Seattle Mariners are 20 games under .500 this season, and were jut preposterously terrible last season, so perhaps the White Sox aren’t the only team who finds comfort in the presence of the Mariners.  Still, pretty much no major league franchise should be able to beat another one 16 times out of 19. No... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was 8/15-8/21 - Heaven can wait, and Hell's too far to go

White Sox Week That Was 8/15-8/21 - Heaven can wait, and Hell's too far to go
This is a long one, but it’s compartmentalized, so it’s easy to read in sections Three weeks ago, after the White Sox did a split for the week, it was plainly obvious that they were still firmly entrenched in the AL Central hunt and showed flashes of a higher level of play.  Being an ornery cuss,...

White Sox Week That Was 8/8-8/14 - Good week, in need of a great week

White Sox Week That Was 8/8-8/14 - Good week, in need of a great week
Handed 7 games against the Sad and Hopeless and the Optimistic but Currently Enfeebled, the White Sox performed their required duty of winning most of the time.  Hooray, pass the Courvoisier. They even went so far as to win both series of the week, taking 3 out of 4 from the last-place Orioles, then recovering... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was 8/1-8/7 - Split-Level

White Sox Week That Was 8/1-8/7 - Split-Level
Deciding to use a week as a split for which to examine a baseball season was always flawed.  It’s impossible to conclude on anything as a real trend in that time, and the next week (especially this season) always seeks to prove that momentum doesn’t exist. This past week for the White Sox is an... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was 7/25-7/31 - Now there are six less games

White Sox Week That Was 7/25-7/31 - Now there are six less games
The White Sox went 3-3 on the week, which isn’t so bad.  Especially considering the fact that the competition was two division-leaders in Detroit and Boston, and that .500 is the rendezvous point where all-three AL Central contenders gather to share iced teas and the day’s gossip. Still, two games under .500 and four back... Read more »

White Sox Week That Was 7/18-7/24 - Peddling a bicycle that's underwater
In this most recent weekend of Earthly Pleasures, the White Sox were nominally productive.  They won 3 of 5 games, dealt two losses to fellow division contenders the Cleveland Indians, drew within 5 games of the AL Central lead (again), and even bested terrifying groundball-maven, Justin Masterson.  3 of 5 games!  That’s a .600 winning...

White Sox Weekend That Was 7/15-7/17 - They beat the Tigers, but they're probably still the team we've watched all year

White Sox Weekend That Was 7/15-7/17 - They beat the Tigers, but they're probably still the team we've watched all year
Unless you’re neither a fan of the White Sox, nor baseball–in which case this URL was a curious but welcome choice by you–the first two games of this weekend series against Detroit were undeniably exciting. First, Friday’s 8-2 (yes, 8!) victory not only featured another cathartic Adam Dunn hit, it featured the White Sox as... Read more »
