Angels 7, White Sox 0: Carlos Rodon Cameo Enough to Bury Sox

This was a bad game. And this is a losing streak. While getting swept at U.S. Cellular Field last season the Angels were able to muster up a total of four runs. Tonight they surpassed that total in the first inning. Spotting a team five runs in the first frame is a very direct route […]

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Baltimore Orioles

Keeping the Twins Cold – Game Preview & Lineups 4/11

After an unexpected day of rest thanks to Sunday’s rain out against Cleveland, the White Sox hit the road for three games against another division foe, beginning with Monday’s 3:10 p.m. game against the Twins, the home opener in Minnesota. Minnesota, which went 13-6 against the White Sox in 2015, is off to a terrible […]

Point being, it’s nice to have new affirmation in a new season that everything still works; that Jose Quintana‘s combination of low-90s heat and average or better stuff continues to play […]


White Sox 4, Athletics 3: And a happy opening day was had by all

A game that saw what should have been a fine pitchers’ duel between Sale and Gray was scrapped before it was even started. A’s ace Sonny Gray came down with food poisoning hours before first pitch in a a contest that ended in a 4-3 White Sox on Opening Night Monday in Oakland. It was hardly the prettiest […]
