White Sox keep hot streak rolling in weekend wins over Rangers

(Photo Credit: ESPN Dallas) Well hello again. Nice to catch up after a two week hiatus. I don't know if it's all the pre-season football that has me derailed, or my Fantasy Football lineup, but I have to say I picked the worst time to put my Southsiders on the back burner.

White Sox Swept by Rays and Notes

The White Sox continue to disappoint this season as their most recent series against the Rays from Tampa Bay resulted in a three game sweep and deeper plunge into the cellar of the worst division in baseball. The first game Dylan Axelrod got roughed up in the second inning as the Rays plated five runs and put the game in cruise control.

White Sox top Red Sox, Quintana dominates

In game two of the Chicago vs. Boston matchup, the White Sox (21-23) edged out the Red Sox (27-19) in a 3-1 win at U.S. Cellular Field.

The game remained scoreless until the fifth, as Boston’s Felix Doubront (3-2, ...

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.

Let’s Talk Lineups

Though not much has changed personnel wise as as far as the White Sox offense goes, there certainly will need to be some key decisions made by manager Ozzie Guillen for the 2011 campaign. The Sox added Adam Dunn, and will see either Brent Morel or Dayan Viciedo compete heavily for the 3rd base position.  Other than those two spots, the roster remains nearly identical to last year. So how do you line em up? ...
