Multitasking: A vital skill when watching the White Sox

Say it ain’t so! Dylan Cease gave up four earned runs in his final start of the season. | Denis Poroy/ Promising first inning leads to an unfortunate loss in San Diego, 5-2 The Marlins were not the only team that helped the San Diego Padres inch closer to clinching a postseason berth on Saturday night. The White Sox offered their own help as the Chicago club lost, 5-2. I started reading Moneyball this week, so I took the opportunity to watch a meaningless White Sox game and get some pages in. The evening started on page 56 of the Michael Lewis tome. Elvis Andrus...

Winston-Salem Dash 2022 Season Review

Winston-Salem Dash 2022 Season Review

There’s no better prospect in the White Sox system than Colson Montgomery. | Chicago White Sox Quite a few of the next crop of White Sox came through Winston-Salem in 2022 The Winston-Salem Dash had some of the best talent the White Sox had to offer at the beginning of the season. On the mound it was Sean Burke, Matthew Thompson, and Drew Dalquist. Burke was shipped up to Birmingham after six fantastic Dash starts, leaving with a 2.89 ERA and a 27% strikeout rate. On the diamond, Oscar Colás started in Winston-Salem and crushed it right away to earn a promotion after...

After his bloop single tied the 1919 World Series opener, 1-1, Chick Gandil made sure to get caught stealing to staunch any further rally for Chicago. Two kinds of World Series Game 1s 1919 The highly-favored White Sox suddenly become the underdogs right before Game 1 of the World Series, which began on this day with Cincinnati upsetting Chicago, 9-1. Eddie Cicotte, who won 29 games in the regular season to lead the White Sox staff, threw the opener and was yanked from the game during a five-run Reds fifth. 1950 Luke Appling got his final hit with the White Sox, in...

Davis Martin picked the White Sox up once more, with a career-high eight strikeouts in taming San Diego for 5 2⁄3 innings. | Denis Poroy/ If the South Siders had won or led the season series with the Guardians, Royals and Twins by just the slimmest of margins, this is the game story you’d be reading now [Don’t stumble out of the box here, people, scroll up to the top or all the way down to the bottom if you get lost.] With a well-played, 3-1 win at San Diego on Friday night, the White Sox kept pace with the Cleveland Guardians and remained just two games back in...

@FanGraphs Hey! The South Siders have won two in a row! The White Sox head west to face the Padres for the last series on the road for 2022. These games don’t count anymore for the White Sox, but a win is always nice, anyway. Let’s break this game down, shall we? The Starters Davis Martin had a terrific night against the Padres offense. He reached a career-high eight strikeouts while only allowing one run and six hits before his sixth-inning departure. His command was there all evening, even after a shaky fourth when he hit the helmet of Brandon Drury. Martin also...

“Anyone here know what happened this season?” | David Berding/ San Diego is in the playoffs, playing the string out; Chicago is not, but yeah, it’s playing the string out, too This is a pressed into coverage gamethread, so none of the bells and whistles you get when all the cool kids give you pitch mixes and matchups. I did plan something special for Sunday, but that might get nixed if my coverage switches to tonight. I guess we’ll see. Remember back when WIN thought it mildly controversial that I predicted the White Sox would be swept by the Padres this...

Target Field proves Payton Place

Target Field proves Payton Place

Mark Payton got a whole lot of chances to run, and used them well. Losing streak ends, 4-3, thanks to late September call-up and Twins gifts It’s over! It’s over! No, not the season, unfortunately. Just the eight-game losing streak. But that will have to do for now. A 4-3 victory over the Twins came thanks to surprise production from a 30-year-old playing his third game with the White Sox and 35th in the majors, and two completely boneheaded defensive plays by Minnesota. The newbie, Mark Payton, was in the middle of all the offensive action. Who knew you could get...
