White Sox trade Edwin Jackson in mundane deal to shed salary--and they're not done!

White Sox trade Edwin Jackson in mundane deal to shed salary--and they're not done!
Trade Deadline madness started officially on Wednesday. Oh sure, Johnny Gomes was traded the night before, and everyone joked about how boring and pointless that affair was, but Wednesday was a day that will be remembered for two highly-coveted outfielders switching teams.  July 27, 2011 – They Moved. And the White Sox got to be... Read more »

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 »

How to tweak the White Sox, and on the cheap too!

How to tweak the White Sox, and on the cheap too!
Tweak, not fix. If the White Sox were a car, they wouldn’t be considered broken, or stalled out on the side of the road.  It’s more that the engine has been making odd noises for the last 90 miles and it’s incapable of any kind of real acceleration.  It needs improvements, and it will probably...

If not Pierre, than who else? A White Sox roster mystery

If not Pierre, than who else? A White Sox roster mystery
If you’ve ever been to a political rally or protest, you’re familiar with the the typical physical by-product: fliers.  Leaflets are distributed en masse for a variety of loosely affiliated causes at every turn, and even though you have no interest in any of them and turn down plenty, your hands are full at the...

White Sox Week That Was - 6/20-6/26: Mediocrity fits like a glove

Harold take this helmet offa me, I can’t use it anymore. It’s getting dark, too dark to see….// Jose M. Osorio, Chicago Tribune The White Sox clocked in at 3-3 on the week, and perhaps if a few more of the losses weren’t of the “that could have been prevented” variety, it would have been...

Danks injury leads to bizarrely excellent relief...almost makes me forget about Friday

And with that touch, the demon Azazel finds a new host body // Chris Sweda, Chicago Tribune Thanks to the 6-man rotation, Jake Peavy was able to step in Saturday at a moment of need for the bullpen, and toss 4 excellent shutout innings (7 Ks!) while earning the win in a 3-0 White Sox... Read more »

WSO on Vacation: So I heard that it was a bad weekend for the White Sox...

Body language of someone who just realized their car has been stolen // Jose M. Osorio, Chicago Tribune Oh hey, what’s up guys? As noted earlier, I’m in scenic Colorado this week.  The last game I was able to catch on the radio driving out was Friday night’s 6-4 triumph over the Tigers, which at... Read more »

Roster shuffling of the mundane variety

This is a crime. It always cool when someone gets promoted.  It’s a life-changing experience, a career milestone, a reason to buy a cake!  However, in the back of the promoted worker’s mind, surely they know that their advancement is enabled by the fall of another.  In baseball, it’s even more obvious, as the very...

When your Opening Day starters aren't good...

When your Opening Day starters aren't good...
This image is so absurd, I could see it in a slapstick 1960’s French comedy // Phil Velasquez, Chicago Tribune …you look at the calendar and realize it’s only May, and decide to calm the hell down. Cut!  Print!  Roll credits!  Post over! —————————————————————– That’s the wise man’s response.  But the Sox are out of... Read more »

Goals for the West Coast trip

Goals for the West Coast trip
Danks has one goal: Win! Everyone else has stuff a lot more complex // Phil Velasquez, Chicago Tribune I’ve decided it’s too soon for my elaborate 25th Hour metaphor about how the 2011 is the prison sentence the White Sox have always had coming due to their roster-construction style.  To flip that all the way...
