    '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...

  • Ozzie just wants cash, Kenny just wants silence, Sox fans should want smarter decisions

    The Ozzie Guillen-Kenny Williams relationship is irretrievably broken. Again. This is a recording. This is another recording. But there's a problem with this regularly scheduled noise that is local baseball's version of elementary school concerts that...

    The bigger the game, the smaller the Sox
    That’s three times in three years that the White Sox have faced the team they were battling for the AL Central in the second half and three times they got pantsed. In 2009, the Sox lost five of six to the Twins from Aug. 31 on. Last year, the Twins...

    Solving Ozzie's closer problem (I'm a pleaser, not a teaser)
    Chris Sale? Next. Jesse Crain? Not so fast. Matt Thornton? Kill me now. “I don’t have any closer,’’ White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said after his latest three stoogies nyuk-nyuk-nyukked a three-run lead over Oakland into an...

  • The Sox are done, so Williams had better get started

    It doesn’t do any good to fire Ozzie Guillen. It doesn’t do any good because he’s not to blame. The White Sox players are. Blame them. Trade them. This Sox season is o-vuh. Sox management shoved “All In,’’...
