Dunn says Hooray for Hollywood!

"I have a tux. I'm just not sure I could still fit in it or not." – Adam Dunn (via ESPN) -- Well, if the whole baseball thing doesn't work out for Adam Dunn, looks like next stop might be Tinsel Town. Dunn, an investor in the Oscar-nominated film "Dallas Buyers Club," has an invitation to attend the Academy Awards this Sunday in Los Angeles. Before you pull together a very-real image of a tuxedoed Dunn popp ...

Sox snap Orioles winning streak, and other Southsider Updates

(Photo Credit: Associated Press) If there ever was a good game to watch this season (and lately there aren’t many), this was the one. The White Sox (33-47) had it all together for once. No errors and solid defense, Adam Dunn and Conor Gillaspie hit home runs, Gordon Beckham had three hits, John Danks pitched into the eighth, and the White Sox topped the hot Baltimore Orioles (47-37) with a 5-2 victory Tuesd ...

Dunn, White Sox serve Boston’s Lester first season loss

Adam Dunn hammered a three-run homer in the first inning to help push the White Sox  to a 6-4 win against the Boston Red Sox. This was the opener of a three-game run at U.S. Cellular Field. Monday night’s win against the Red Sox (27-18) was a big win for the White Sox (20-23) in many ways. Allow me to lead off with the obvious; this win stopped Boston’s lefty power hurler Jon Lester from a 7-0 record, which ...

In The Loop with Ed Edens: Chicago Baseball Review with Ty Kane

Ed calls fellow CCS contributor Ty Kane to discuss the awful start to the 2013 season for both the Cubs and the Sox. The guys wonder if there is a reason to keep the faith, and do their best to find some silver linings. Ultimately, they decide that Alex Rios and Jorge Soler (and his anger issues) give them a reason to believe.  In The Loop with Ed Edens: Chicago Baseball Review with Ty Kane 4-25-13   I ...

Adam Dunn’s Experiment Has to End, Now.

The Adam Dunn experiment has to end. No, no, I am not saying the Chicago White Sox should bench the 33-year-old designated hitter. Although his -0.5 fWAR, .120/.185/.260 slash line and 19 OPS+ wouldn’t make that move too radical. No, the experiment refers to Dunn’s newfound approach at the plate. An approach he spoke at length about during a Spring Training interview with Chicago Tribune’s Mark Gonzalez: "I ...

Who’s to Blame for Chicago White Sox’s Anemic Offense

Friday's 1-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians might be as worse as it gets for Chicago White Sox fans this season — or this may only be the start. It's not often a starter can go 7 innings, give up one hit and end up without a victory, but White Sox starter Jose Quintana felt that pain Friday. Quintana bounced back in a big way from a mediocre first start to have one of the best starts of his young career. The ...

Manto deserves credit for player turnarounds

For most of his tenure as White Sox hitting coach, Greg Walker was a lightning rod for criticism. Fans seemingly were always upset with Walker with a lot of different things, whether it be the team’s plate approaches, the stances of certain players or just the overall lack of production. Whatever the case may be, the blame from the fans went onto Walker more often than not. However, 2012 brought winds of ch ...

Rios, not Dunn or Peavy, most deserving of Comeback POTY

For pretty much all of 2012, Jake Peavy and Adam Dunn have been regarded as the leading candidates for the American League’s Comeback Player of the Year Award. With Dunn coming off a season where he hit just .159 and Peavy being fully healthy for the first time in years after extensive surgery on a detached lat muscle in his right shoulder, they certainly are two players who deserve consideration. However, ...

Should Chicago fans expect the White Sox to bail out on the rest of the season?

The last four MLB seasons have seen a routine blossoming in the Chicago White Sox clubhouse and on filed play...the South Siders wait for next season while they're still playing the current season. The 2011 White Sox seem to be no different. It might just be me, but it feels like the black and white squad struggle after the all-star game every year since the 2005 World Series. The pitching falters, bats don ...
