Chicago White Sox

That time of year already…

Well this post is risky for two reasons. Firstly, I’ve not done a baseball post for a while and I know that a lot of my new followers are probably expecting books, books and more books, so if you don’t… Continue Reading →

Player love or Team Pride?

It’s been a while since I posted about baseball, so if you’ve started following my blog recently and are expecting back to back book reviews, I’m sorry! It’s not been the best season so far for the White Sox, but… Continue Reading →

Back to Baseball: Off-Season recap

It’s that time of year again, and although I’ve been a bit quiet about baseball during Spring Training, there’s less than a week left until the first game of the season so there’ll be more baseball blogs coming. The regular… Continue Reading →

No Baseball until next year? Not quite…

Now that the season is over (although it seems like a long time since the White Sox actually played baseball), it’s time to focus on trades and free agents and hot stove goodness until baseball returns for spring training next… Continue Reading →

I think this picture sums up the 2011 White Sox season:

Who Saw That Coming?

Well I guess pretty much everyone did. I woke up this morning to an email on my phone saying that the White Sox had released manager Ozzie Guillen from his contract, at his request. While I’m not too surprised that… Continue Reading →

3 Strikes, They’re out?

After a rather busy, but very enjoyable weekend, I sat down to catch up on baseball for the first time since Friday night. The White Sox are now on a 7 game losing streak, putting us 14.5 games out of… Continue Reading →

Walking off with the White Sox season?

Last night was one of the rare occurences where a White Sox game starts early enough for me to watch all of it. Although now I kind of wish I didn’t! It was looking so promising, a 3 run homer… Continue Reading →

Nice grab, didn’t catch the runner though…

Here’s number 1999! I’m just gutted he didn’t get it today, as I probably won’t see it now. West Coast baseball means all the games start at 3 in the morning (UK time), so unless there’s a rain delay and… Continue Reading →

So Long Edwin and Mark…

The trade deadline is coming up rather quickly this year (Sunday at 9PM). I thought that we might slip through without any major moves this year, especially with the payroll being so high, but I got home from work today… Continue Reading →

600 Homers or 3000 Hits?

Last night, The MLB Fan Cave posed the following question on Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/MLBFanCave/status/93080982881697792 (More impressive milestone: 3,000 hits or 600 home runs?). First of all, both milestones are pretty damn impressive. You have to be at the top of your… Continue Reading →

Chris Sale

1. I love Chris Sale. 2. This picture on FanFeedr of Chris Sale pitching in the fog against the Indians (taken by Jonathan Daniel) is awesome. 3. That’s all.

That’s gonna leave a mark…

My favourite baseball player Gordon Beckham got hit in the face last night by a relay throw in the game against the Blue Jays. It looked really painful – the last I heard, his eye was working but he was going… Continue Reading →

Caption Competition

A baseball themed caption competition today with a couple of amusing pictures I saw when browsing around FanFeedr. Prizes for the best caption for each picture * *(Not really)

Decade of the Pitcher?

Congratulations to Justin Verlander on his no-hitter tonight, a fantastic game! I tuned in during the eighth inning, when he was still on track for a perfect game. That was broken up by a walk, but a no-hitter is a… Continue Reading →

Lillibrilliant?!

I gave up on posting game recaps when the White Sox gave up on winning, but I had to write a post about Brent Lillibridge in last night’s game against the Yankees. Last night’s game didn’t start until midnight UK… Continue Reading →

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Okay, now you have finished singing Christmas songs in your head (!), I don’t mean Christmas, I mean Opening Day, and how brilliant was it?! I have to admit I was pretty nervous about whether there would even be baseball… Continue Reading →

The award for best spring training tweet goes to…

… Jim Margalus. Ozzie and Kenny decided to take both guys rather than some freaky mash-up, but it really made me laugh! http://twitter.com/#!/JimMargalus/status/51476034423488512

Rocket Fuel for Breakfast?!

I don’t know what the White Sox had for breakfast yesterday but it must have been bloody good! 18-1 over the Athletics. Now I get that they aren’t the best team in baseball and it is still spring training, but… Continue Reading →
