    Hey, look! Maybe a Sox plan after all!
    It looks like the White Sox have a plan to rectify the mess called the 2013 season. Or if not a plan, at least an idea how to form one. The most important of the Sox’s trade pieces was moved Tuesday night when Jake Peavy went to the Red Sox in a...

    Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' White Sox mailbag
    While managers have different preferences about using "small ball," it strikes me that the White Sox rarely use sacrifice bunts in games where one run can make the difference. Is this a strategical decision or are they just bad bunters? -- Bob Dunn;...

    'R' is for realistic, Sox fans
    The magic of baseball is it brings out the kid in all of us. Given that, I'm channeling fond memories of "Sesame Street" in saying this perspective on the White Sox's 2013 season is brought to you by the letter "R." Rebuild The word that was once...
  • Watch White Sox coach Mark Parent get tossed before game begins

      In a sight you don't see every day, Chicago White Sox coach Mark Parent was ejected before Sunday's game against the Texas Rangers. Parent took the lineup card to home plate before the game and had a few choice words for umpire Jerry Layne, who...

    Phegley walk-off single makes Sox 3-2 winners

    Matt Wieters' 2-out, 2-run single in 10th lifts Orioles over White Sox, 4-3
    The Orioles had more than their share of opportunities to put away the Chicago White Sox on Saturday afternoon at Camden Yards. But as scoring chances came and went, frustration mounted in the home dugout. Through 17 at-bats with runners in scoring...
  • Who's best Sox position player? (Trick question)

    Who's best Sox position player? (Trick question)
    For those of you scoring at home, that was eight runs, seven hits, two walks and two errors. In just the fourth inning. Leave it to the White Sox to out-disaster this season’s disaster. The Sox waited through a long rain delay, then took to...
  • Greg Schwem: Life isn't fair when the ball goes foul

    The ball towered off White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez's bat. As it began its descent, the occupant of lower box 123, row 11, seat 6 had only one thought: "That's headed right at me." Instead of assuming an outfielder's position -- centering myself...

    Homers continue to hurt Hammel and Orioles in 5-2 loss to White Sox
    CHICAGO — Jason Hammel isn't going to apologize for pitching aggressively. That's what's made him a pitcher the Orioles have learned to count on to give them a chance to win every time out. Make no mistake, the fact that Hammel — who allowed...

    Cubs, Sox pull off the bad-to-stupid-to-inert double play
    Taking a quick break from the Stanley Cup Final to vent about the Cubs and White Sox: The Sox are a joke, but rookie General Manager Rick Hahn is doing nothing to stop the losing. In fact, he’s doing nothing, period. I think he got the idea...
