Chicago Media Prepares for Life After Ozzie

 In 2004 Ozzie Guillen was hired as the new White Sox manager and quickly brought the south side franchise out of the Cubs shadow. Yes he led the Sox to 99 victories and a World Series championship in 2005 but that was only part of the reason the team grabbed headlines. Ozzie replaced an older, much more reserved manager in Jerry Manuel. His short fuse, willingness to say anything about anyone and humorous  ...

Dayan Debuts

Viciedo made his debut, finally against the Seattle Mariners. The Tank played right and batted fifth. The uber prospect went 2/3 with a homer and 3 RBIs. "It was a perfect condition to come out here and do what I did," noted a clearly satisfied Viciedo, "It feels really good. All the conditioning, all the work I've been doing, to get three RBIs today and a home run, that felt really good." As I wrote earlie ...

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? ...

Is Ozzie’s Time in Chicago Ending?

Nothing like an epic season ending collapse to get Ozzie's mouth moving, and requesting a contract extension. The Sun-Times reports, among other things, that Ozzie was talking extension last night in Oakland. ''I never talked to them that I don't want to come back,'' Guillen said. ''First of all, I don't have the power to do it because right now they don't want to hear that s---. They don't want to hear me ...

Thome Making Major Impact for Twins

One of Ozzie Guillen's most controversial decisions this past winter was to tell Jim Thome thanks, but no thanks, when Thome expressed his desire to sign with the White Sox. Guillen has always wanted a flexible team that can steal bases and manufacture runs with speed, Thome will never be confused with that type of player. After being told he wouldn't be signed by the White Sox, Thome took an offer to join ...

What Are the Chances?

The Sox have now won 4 straight games, 11 at home, and have increased the slim division lead to 1.5 games on the Twinks and 6 on Detroit.  Yet as well as the Sox have been playing, it still feels like a division championship is a long way out. So I posed the question to the many followers of @talkchibaseball on Twitter, "What are the chances the Sox win the division with the current roster" We received answ ...

The Sox had one of their biggest innings of the season as AJ and Alexei both cranked out 2 run doubles in the ...

Peavy the Great shuts down Toronto

As I said last week, Jake might have been hearing the chants of Cy Young! Cy Young! Cy Young!  Tonight, more and more people might have been starting those chants.  Jake was excellent as he took a perfect game into the 6th inning.  However the clock struck mid night for his no hit bid as John Buck took him deep.  Peavy went 8 innings giving up only 2 runs on 3 hits while striking out 8.  Only other pitcher ...
