Matt Moore Dominates in Win Over Sox

If you read the previous recap of the White Sox game on the 26th, you would know that one of the keys to a White Sox victory on Saturday would be to get at Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher, Matt Moore, early. However, the White Sox were not able to get to Moore, and the Rays went on to win in convincing fashion, 10-4. Moore pitched six phenomenal innings, only giving up three hits and one walk, allowing only ...

Since I did not write a series preview for all of our avid readers, I will attempt to break down every game of this series instead. Coming off of a two game split with the Cleveland Indians, the perennial contenders in the AL East, the Tampa Bay Rays came to town for a three game set. The White Sox really need to get back on track and win some games to ensure they stay competitive this year and they had a g ...

White Sox Drop the Ball, Swept in Shortened Series with Minnesota

With the White Sox being in fourth place before the series with the thought to be lowly Minnesota Twins, Robin Ventura was looking for a three game pick me up that turned into a wake up call for himself and the front office in Chicago. The Sox were swept by a team considered to be one of the worst in Major League Baseball and now sit in last place in the American League Central with a 7-10 record. The White ...

Looking Towards 2013: The Starting Rotation

For most of the 2012 season, starting pitching was one of the strengths of this White Sox team. Chris Sale emerged into an ace, Jake Peavy stayed healthy the whole season, and Jose Quintana came out of nowhere to have a stretch of two months that were as good as any rookie pitcher in the game. However, the rotation was also in a state of flux at times this season. John Danks was lost for the season in May, ...

Six Man Rotation would benefit White Sox

Last year at this time, the White Sox were using a six man rotation with Mark Buehrle, Gavin Floyd, John Danks, Phil Humber, Edwin Jackson and Jake Peavy. It didn’t work very well, as certain guys faltered down the stretch, partly causing the Sox to fall short of the postseason and causing me to hate the idea of using six starting pitchers. However, that was 2011. This is 2012, and I believe that given the ...

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 ...

Kenny Williams Does It Again

In a matter of just two days, Kenny Williams made three moves that have made the White Sox significantly better for 2011 than what we would have expected at the conclusion of 2010.  First was the signing of Adam Dunn, next was the trade of Scott Linebrink, and finally was the re-signing of A.J. Pierzysnki. Let's start with the Dunn move.  On Thursday the White Sox and Adam Dunn agreed in principle to a 4 ye ...

Just Don’t Get Swept

Game 1, not so good for the White Sox.  But games 2 and 3 can go a long way to erase the debacle of tonight. But in order for the Sox to turn this series around, someone is going to have to step up.  Coming off the atrocious showing in Baltimore in which the South Siders dropped 3 games out of 4 to the worst team in baseball, game 1 of 3 in Minnesota is not what the Sox were hoping for.  However, the pitchi ...
