White Sox 5, Yankees 0: As easy as Pie-neda

An important part of contending is not just about come-from-behind victories, or hard-fought battles against division foes; it’s about winning the games you need to win. The White Sox lost in an embarrassing fashion last night, by a score of 9-0. They followed that up with an easy win of their own, and they beat […]


Red Sox 8, White Sox 7: A lost battle of bad bullpens

The White Sox had a chance to walk away with a four-game sweep of one of the best teams in baseball, and they blew it. Sure, it might seem a little spoiled acting like winning three of four is a bad thing, but this team is sliding and sliding fast, and winning this game would […]


White Sox 3, Red Sox 1: A miracle against Craig Kimbrel

Watching a struggling team sucks. Let’s face it: watching the 2016 White Sox is frustrating. It’s a roller coaster, alright. Actually, it’s more like a merry-go-round. Watch a White Sox game this year, and you’ll spin in a circle and see some familiar things. Does the opposing starter toss a gem? Check. Does the White Sox […]

MLB: Kansas City Royals at Chicago White Sox

Royals 4, White Sox 1: A typical Jose Quintana loss

The White Sox are back at .500, just as they clawed their way above the mark. Jose Quintana did his job for the most part, allowing just three runs over eight innings, but the Royals completely shut down the Sox offense. Same old, same old. 1. Quintana, per usual, was good. In fact, he didn’t face […]

MLB: Kansas City Royals at Chicago White Sox

White Sox 3, Royals 2: The series is salvaged

Entering Sunday’s series finale against the Royals, the White Sox were on a 1-6 stretch since winning the series opener at Yankee Stadium on May 13, which is not good at all. Well, it’s two wins now if you include today. The Sox were able to salvage the last game of the three-game set largely […]


Astros 5, White Sox 3: Well, at least they got a triple play

If you happen to read PECOTA projected standings, which I like to do sometimes, you’ll notice that the Astros have a higher projected winning percentage moving forward than the White Sox. It may not show int their 17-24 record as of now, but it’s true: even though they don’t have the wins to show for […]

MLB: Chicago White Sox at New York Yankees

White Sox 7, Yankees 1: Sale keeps rolling while offense clobbers Severino

This is exactly how you would have drawn it up. The Yankees and Luis Severino have been struggling mightily, and Chris Sale has been cruising this season, so one would expect that the White Sox would take advantage of both of those facts. Well, they did. They won the first game of this three-game set […]

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Chicago White Sox

White Sox 3, Twins 1: Can they play the Twins every day?

The sweep is complete. The White Sox moved to a perfect 6-0 against the Twins on Sunday thanks to Jose Quintana’s continued exceptional pitching, a few timely runs and a shutdown bullpen performance. They are now 12 games over .500. 1. We all know that Quintana cannot sustain a 1.40 ERA and 2.10 FIP for […]
