MLB: Minnesota Twins at Chicago White Sox

The White Sox Can’t Have Nice Things

The White Sox being bad is a surprise to approximately no one. You could quibble with the degree at which they’ve been bad — I didn’t necessarily anticipate 30 games below .500 nearing the All-Star break, but the common refrain since the start of 2017 has been to focus on the development of individual pieces […]

MLB: Chicago White Sox at Houston Astros

South Side Morning 5: Done With Houston

The White Sox dropped their fourth straight in Houston on Sunday afternoon and have now lost nine of their last 11 games.  They remain on pace to win 50-something games, which is apparently not even noteworthy as they are still five games ahead of the hapless Orioles and Royals.  Unlike those squads, the White Sox don’t look to […]

There’s a whole lot of bad worth discussing in their games, a lot of which ultimately doesn’t matter. But a weekend split of a four-game series against the Oakland […]
