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."
The word that was once...

OK, enough with the overtime games.
I've complained about this to no end, but now I really mean it. I've aged, like, five years in the past week. And please, I wasn't young to begin with. I went from, you know, a touch of salt and pepper, to something a...

The White Sox were extremely pleased with the development of their pitching staff in 2012, particularly the rookie relievers who experienced the pressure of a division race.
In fact, general manager Ken Williams resisted any temptation to trade any of...

Maybe it’s me, but listening to the sounds of silence during the sixth inning of the White Sox game in Baltimore on Monday night sounded like Hawk Harrelson was called into the principal's office again.
Or at least got a phone call.
The point of...

In a blog Tuesday morning, I speculated about Hawk Harrelson’s rants on umpires.
I pointed out the difference in his outburst when A.J. Pierzynski and Robin Ventura were ejected oSaturday and his silence when Jesse Crain didn’t get a 3-and-...

Injuries aside, it has become increasingly evident that Mike Quade simply does not know how to manage a professional baseball team in crucial situations. He has had multiple chances to make the right move, but instead he has made the wrong move or he has...

Thanks for the offer, Jake. Now shut up and make a rehab start in the minors.
Jake Peavy told White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper he would pitch out of the bullpen. Heck, Peavy told anybody and everybody he would pitch out of the bullpen.

Sergio Santos came on to get a four-out save against the Cubs on Tuesday night, and you couldn’t help but play what-if.
The save was Santos’ 13th in 15 tries. He faced the 4-5-6-7 hitters and struck out three of them. And you couldn’t...

In the end, Sunday's scheduled starter Philip Humber was warming up, ready to pitch the 15th inning if needed.
Yes, it was that kind of night for the Chicago White Sox.
Humber wasn’t needed because four unearned runs, caused by a throwing error by...

Blame everybody. Just spread it around like fertilizer after the White Sox choked another home win Monday night.
Blame the manager. Ozzie Guillen removed Mark Buehrle from his best start of the season: eight innings of two-hit ball on 99 pitches in a 1-0...
