And This Is How It Ends!!!!?

A 1-8 record in the last 9 games!!
Yeah, the experts that predicted that the Tigers will pat themselves on the back, but the Sox handed over the division to the Tigers.

Yep, This is How I Feel Right Now About the White Sox

And First Place is Gone, Just Like That!

1-7 record: pathetic, awful, embarrassing, bad!

12 walks:  pathetic, awful, embarrassing, bad!

Youk batting .197 in September.
Konerko in his last seven games- .174

It's still not over; but,......

Jason Varitek On His Way To Becoming Red Sox Manager?

Eric gagne Says 80% of His Teammates Used HGH!!

1-6 Record Leads to a (Bad) Tie with Detroit

The White Sox are just not playing well down the stretch. A tie with the Tigers (something I am not optimistic about right now) would result in Game #163 IN DETROIT, where the White Sox have been terrible.

Need to fix things quick!!!

It's ain't over until it's over, but.....

Thank you, Twins, thank you!!

Maybe this was the Twins way of returning the favor for the the help they got from the 
White Sox late in the 2009 season.

Magic Number Update

It has been stuck at 12 for way too long, so updating this as soon as possible.

The Mediocre 12 Strikes Again !!

We interrupt the White Sox spiral to remind you how bad Big Ten Football is:

  • Ohio State 29 vs UAB 15- UAB is winless!
  • Wisconsin 37 vs UTEP 26- Badgers looked awful against a pretty bad UTEP team.
  • Iowa 31 vs Central Michigan 32- MAC better than Big Ten?
  • Northwestern 38 vs South Dakota 7- Northwestern is undefeated.
  • Michigan State 23 vs E. Michigan 7- Sparty looked ineffective versus a winless team.
  • Nebraska 73 vs Idaho State 7- Pile on against a 1-2 FCS team.
  • Penn State 24 vs Temple 13
  • Michigan 6 @ Notre Dame 13- luckily I was at a wedding and I missed this sad game. 
  • Minnesota 17 vs Syracuse 10- Gophers undefeated for now.
  • Illinois 24 vs Louisiana Tech 52- Oh, Illini this is just sad!!Sad.
Wow- can't wait for conference play to begin!!

C'mon White Sox!!

Win 5 in a row, and now lose 3 in a row!!!

Didn't watch the entire game last night, but it is pretty clear what the problem is.

2. Hard to criticize PK and he's probably hurt but when was the last time that he got a big hit?! 

3. Needed Peavy to be "Bulldog" last night and he was Puppy Dog last night. Has he beaten anyone but the Twins in the second half!!

You are in a pennant race- step it up!! The division is yours to lose- and right now you are in fact playing to lose the division!

Just win a damn game tonight!!

Owly Images

picture, oh wait this is a story about Vince Young going broke!

1. How can you spend $6,000 at TGI Fridays? How many people are in your group? 30? Even then that's a lot of drinks! A huge tip.

2. Didn't Vince Young ever get comped at restaurants or nightclubs!?

3. LenDale White brings his own bottle of Patron to TGI Friday's

4. VY bought out a Southwest plane (except for about 10 seats) for HIMSELF!! Not for an entourage of 120 peoples, but for himself! Why? Rent a jet! Probably cheaper.

5. You can listen to some of the stories about Vince's spending habits.

Unbelievable that no one told him to at least SLOW DOWN on the spending.

Sox Suck! Bears Suck!

Oh No! Magic Number Stays at 12. Lead Shrinks Back to 2 Games!

1. White Sox lose another game to the Royals! Fail to put the lead back to 3 games after Detroit lost to the A's.
2. For the most part, starting pitching has not been the problems. Instead the offense continues to leave runners in scoring position. That needs to stop soon. More production from PK, AJ and Dunn is needed.
3. Plus a little help from our friends- Twins & Royals would be real nice.

White Sox Magic Number

Thank you, Oakland!!
Lead is now 2 1/2 games going into tonight's game.

Who is Ashley Monroe?

 No idea. (Maybe DM knows?)
But she is engaged to White Sox Jon Danks.

Five in A Row!!

After winning a game where neither team hit a home run, the White Sox win 3-2 on three solo home runs!!

GREAT pitching performance by Gavin Floyd!!

White Sox Magic Number is 13!!

Stay Classy Cubs Fans

Yes, every ballpark has it's share of D-Bag fans. The Cell is certainty not immune from them, but if is always fun to point out the special qualities of those "fans" at Wrigley Field!

For me one of the best parts of this video is- why is the usher helping the guy who is stealing the ball from the other fan?!

But a fan at yesterday's Cubs game really wanted to get on TV:

It Ain't Over Till It's Over, but...

Close enough to count off the Magic Number, which is- 14!

Four in a Row with a 3 Game Lead!!

Detroit Based MLB Writer Says White Sox Deserve Division

Great job by the Bullpen- 5 innings. 1 hit.
Great play by Rios.

White Sox CAN WIN Without Hitting a Home Run!

If the White Sox hold on to win the AL Central, this will be remembered as one of the White Sox plays of the year!!
Rios- Team MVP!

Three In A Row, But Now Let's Get the Big Fish!

An afternoon game at The Cell. Time to beat Detroit!

Thursday, September 13, 2012


Robin has done an excellent job this season but the last two games have been marked by some questionable moves, i.e., over-managing.
Why pull Floyd after 4 2/3 innings? No chance he could work his way out of a jam?
Tying run at the plate and instead pinching hitting with someone with home run power- Flowers or Vicedo- Robin has the O-Dog bat. Why?

Sale v. Verlander tonight.

Believe It or Not- The Tribe Was in First for 40 Days!

It must be very difficult to be a Cleveland Sports Fan.

White Sox Hold Three Game Lead

Yes, 3 is better than 2!
Three Stars of the game:
1. Rios- Three run homer gives White Sox the lead
2. AJ & Gordon Beckham- add home runs of their own
3. Quintana- 7 plus innings giving up 1 run.

Honorable Mention- the Tigers' Defense.

Never Forget

The "Mediocre 12" Has Returned!!

It was a hell of a weekend for the misnamed Big Ten. Wisconsin has already fired its offensive line coach (Badgers should be 0-2).
UCLA defeats Nebraska!

Now This Is a BIG Series

With a 2 game lead and a 4 game series with the Tigers the Sox need at least a split.
White Sox biggest problem lately has been lack of offense- or maybe it's just the Royals.
Q on the mound today. Big game!!

Bears' Game!
White Sox with a 2 game lead over the Tigers!

"So At Least The Tigers Lost."

In a pennant race, I would like to count on more than just the Tigers losing.
Game #29 for me- need to get back to a personal winnign streak. Chris Sale on the mound.
No word on Youk or Dunn yet.

White Sox- Can We Please Win 2 in a Row!!

This young lady is lonely and would prefer to be pictured with a friend!!

Baseball Is a Funny Game

1. Sox were Leading 3-0. End Up losing 18-9.
2. As RKG informed me, the Twins have in the span of a few weeks scored 18 runs on the Tigers  and 18 runs on the White Sox. The Twins are in last place. The Tigers and White Sox are battling for 1st place!!
3. White Sox set a franchise record for doubles in a game- AND lose 18-9!
4. I am now left to wonder if the DeWayne Wise pitching a scoreless 9th inning will be a highlight of the season.

What Is It With Texas Tech Coaches?

First Mike Leach and now this!!!

Ranking Last Night's White Sox By Level of SUCK!

1. Philip Humber- 8 earned runs!!! This guy actually pitched a Perfect Game- this season!!!
2. Jose Quintana- Here's where the bleeding started. Forced heavy use of the bullpen.
3. Kevin Youkilis-his play in the top of the second was orignally ruled an error. Should have gotten at least 1 out of it. Instead lead to a 7 run inning.
4. Rios - Poor defense lead to at least 1 run.

Ron Swanson!! Well, kind of!

One Game Lead

After an AWFUL weekend, it's good to have the White Sox back in 1st place by themselves.
A FULL 1 game lead!!!

Hic Man!
