White Sox player wrap-ups - Daniel Hudson

Sometimes the only picture of you big enough for a title line is a shot of you looking like you can’t stand the smell of the dugout. As much as I admittedly am charmed by the “We’re All-In” slogan, it’s a bit of a misnomer because…it’s not really new.  Maybe the White Sox aren’t going... Read more »

White Sox player wrap-ups - Edwin Jackson

White Sox player wrap-ups - Edwin Jackson
It’s Scott Boras on the line……”DON’T YOU DARE LISTEN!” It’s always important to have a back-up plan.  Especially when a team has invested millions upon millions of dollars on a hard-throwing pitcher who puts tons of torque on his arm, it becomes important to have a serviceable, MLB-ready starter waiting in the minors who keeps...

White Sox player wrap-ups - Freddy Garcia
At least one person is going to be perturbed about the use of this picture Is there a more fun baseball player to write about than aging, sorta washed-up Freddy Garcia?  It’s entertaining to watch him retire major league hitters with a liberal use of slow breaking-stuff, he’s hilariously covered in sweat by the 2nd...

What player should the White Sox deal for bullpen help?

What player should the White Sox deal for bullpen help?
Because seriously, we need to make some room for this Rose kid. Writing about trade rumors is kind of a self-defeating practice, especially if you’re a blogger who hasn’t even a shred of inside information.  I mean, I  have some reliable avenues to get by-the-minute trade information, but so does everyone else who uses Twitter. ...

Edwin Jackson is still good in Detroit, White Sox in position to benefit

Just like White Sox fans, Edwin Jackson was holding his breath Wednesday night. Just like White Sox fans, he could have just been suffering from mild indigestion It’s tough when the fan base has buyer’s remorse for your trade essentially from the moment it’s announced.  It’s like your fiancee’s brother getting drunk and breaking the...

Hudson trade reveals lack of starting pitching talent left in White Sox minor league system

Carlos Torres accomplished the goal he needed to in his Tuesday start of the 2nd half of a day-night doubleheader.  He didn’t somehow lose the game he wasn’t pitching in.  Hurrah. Just like flipping over a moldy log reveals a horrifying army of slugs large and organized enough to take down a cocker spaniel, so... Read more »

Edwin Jackson is a White Sox; worse things have happened

So your son just bought a new car.  It’s a good machine, and it’s a fabulous make with a great engine, and when it first came out–what, like seven years ago?–man, everyone was losing their minds about this friggin car.  That was up until it flew off a bridge and into a lake about a... Read more »

White Sox interested in Edwin Jackson - What? Was Todd Ritchie unavailable?

Edwin Jackson, Dontrelle Willis, and Dan Haren in the same photo; what the hell is going on in Arizona? Things just seem to jump in the way of me getting to write the snarky, jerkish pieces I really want to write.  For example, I had aspirations of writing an extremely mocking article about how sad...

Nationals willing to trade Dunn for Hudson and a legit prospect - It could be worse

Normally I like to show pictures that emphasize Dunn’s gut, but I say do the deal on the basis of this photo alone If you believe anything that Kenny Williams says (I usually don’t, but it’s a personal choice) then the White Sox are perfectly content to stand pat with the spunky bunch of go-getters...

Are White Sox ok?

After performing the rarely seen mid-season quantum leap in June to vault themselves from the verge of being gutted in a series of white flag trades that few would protest, to a team that assesses the viability of its playoff chances day-in, day-out, the White Sox had to figure that some period of malaise, where...
