RIP 2013 White Sox

Rest in Peace

Well, baseball season is over. The Red Sox won the World Series, and the White Sox…well, they were awful all season. There’s no sugar coating how bad they were. And there are only so many ways you can say, “Man, they’re awful.” Which is why Cheryl and I kind of neglected South Side Hit Girl. […]

How low will the White Sox go?

a very bright spot in an otherwise terrible season

Yesterday, the White Sox stopped the bleeding and finally won a game on the 10-game road trip they’d been on. They started the trip with a sweep at the hands of the Red Sox and then were swept by the Yankees. The Orioles almost swept them, but somehow, the Sox managed to win the final […]

Twas the Night Before the Deadline: A White Sox Recap

The Sox started their series with the Indians tonight, and because I have time on my hands and am feeling extra creative tonight, I have decided to bring you tonight’s recap in verse. While the game didn’t turn out favorably (like the season so far), there has to be some joy. So have some poetry, […]

Behind Rios’s Slam, White Sox Beat Braves

The Sox didn’t quite get it done last night against the Braves, but that’s the nice thing about baseball: you get to try again the next day. John Danks picked up the loss last night, so Jake Peavy, in his first start back from the disabled list, looked to right the ship. Peavy had a […]

Feeling Like We’re in the ATL. Series Preview: White Sox Versus Braves

Sox-vs-Braves

If you are in Chicago, you have probably felt the heat of late. Actually, it now feels like summer in Chicago. Steady temperatures in the high 80s with feels all the way over 100 degrees. Yep, it is finally summer around here. For some, it might feel as though we’re in the wonderful southern heat. […]

I Wanted to be Wrong

Before the series with the Tampa Bay Rays began, I predicted a sweep. I did that with the hope that the Sox actually win at a least one game. Sadly, my prediction of a sweep was very much real. Game one featured a terrible performance by Dylan Axelrod. Game two featured a lefty finally getting […]

Future Look For White Sox?

Last night’s game was over before it even began. By the end of the second inning, the Sox were down by five runs and Dylan Axelrod was off to the showers. Sometimes, it happens the starter just doesn’t have it. Unfortunately for Dylan, the lack of offense all season pretty much meant there was no […]

Just How Much Longer? White Sox At Rays

The homestand that was beyond bad ended yesterday. Somehow with a walk-off win and a series win against the Orioles. The White Sox somehow managed to win the game, despite their best efforts to screw things up. Now, they are on the road again with a brief visit back here next Monday to make up […]

Fourth of July Brings Typical Crazy. White Sox Win Anyway

Happy Birthday ‘Murrika! For people in Chicago, it actually felt like a summer day. Summer in that it was actually above 75 degrees in temperature and the sun is shining. Made for great weather to take in a ball game. Strangely, the game started out as a pitching duel. Not many hits surrendered and certainly […]

Lack of Runs Dooms Sox

Well that winning streak was short lived. Actually, I don’t think you can call one game a “streak, as the Sox fell to the Orioles tonight, 4-2. Hector Santiago took to the mound, and he pitched well. He lasted seven innings, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out nine. […]

Homers Power Sox Past O’s

Hey look at that! A White Sox winner! After a five-game losing streak, the Sox are back in the win column after a 5-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. John Danks had a good start today. He pitched seven solid innings, allowing just two runs on six hits and a walk. He did give up […]

One Man Wrecking Crew. Series Preview: White Sox Versus Orioles

Wasn’t the weekend just so special? A four-game sweep at the hands of a division rival. With having the day off yesterday, the Sox are now back at it for the holiday week to face the Baltimore Orioles. Being the pessimist the Sox have made me this season, I expect nothing less than demoralizing losses […]

That’s So Sox! Series Preview: White Sox Versus Indians

The 10-game homestand has gotten off to a 1-1 start. You didn’t have to see the games against the Mets to guess what happened. Everything that did happen is just so White Sox baseball right now. Things will continue this weekend with a four-game set against the Indians and here is what you need to […]

Apologies. Series Preview: White Sox Versus Mets

Double meaning in the word apologies. First, for my absence in writing. I have been trying to keep up with the team, but things at work have been a tad hectic and I’ve got this running “problem” that is taking up time as well. In any event, I will be working harder to keep up […]

White Sox Tie Game Late But Lose to Twins

What is it about the Sox and the Twins? They had a stretch there where they actually beat the Twins, but now the Sox seem to back to their inability to beat Minnesota. In the first game of this three game set, the Sox lost 7-5. Dylan Axelrod took the mound tonight, and he had […]
