MLB: Minnesota Twins at Chicago White Sox

South Side Morning 5: A Fun Win

Wins and losses don’t mean much this year but trolling the Twins is always worthwhile — Nicky Beeps (@Nick_BPSS) May 4, 2018 1. We often get so caught up in who’s doing what and when and where in regards to the White Sox build toward contention that we don’t stop to appreciate a truly enjoyable game. […]

MLB: Chicago White Sox at Kansas City Royals

South Side Morning 5: (Mostly) Beating the Royals

Five of the White Sox eight wins this season have come against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium, a fact that says more about their ineptitude against non-Royals teams than about the team’s performance as a whole. Still, even after dropping the last two of the weekend’s five-game series against the 7-20 Royals, a solid stretch […]

South Side Morning 5: A win is a win is a win

1. The White Sox snapped their five-game losing streak and salvaged a win to end an otherwise disastrous season-opening home stand thanks, almost entirely, to Matt Davidson. Be a hero. pic.twitter.com/9RBPO1XnwE — Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) April 11, 2018 The home run and win will overshadow what was another sloppy and often times perplexing performance […]

South Side Morning 5: These Things Are Bound To Happen

1. Opening Day in Chicago seemed hunky dory when the White Sox turned a 7-3 lead over to the expectantly reliable duo of Nate Jones and Joakim Soria. Then some time passed, too many Tigers crossed home plate, and next thing you knew the White Sox were 9-7 losers in 10 innings. As much as […]

MLB: Chicago White Sox at Toronto Blue Jays

South Side Morning 5: A normal baseball game where nothing weird happened

Wednesday’s 4-3 victory over the Blue Jays will be remembered — if it’s remembered for anything — for the unusual play in the top of the 5th inning that will ultimately go down as nothing more than an RBI single by Yoan Moncada. But five impressive innings from Carson Fulmer, two more home runs, and […]

South Side Morning 5: Opening Day Dingers

1. The anticipation and excitement that comes with Opening Day make it almost impossible to not overreact, whether it’s to something bad or something good. Any reasonable baseball observer knows what happens only matters as much as any single game can. It’s an oft-repeated sentiment: It’s just one game. It’s a long season. Small sample sizes. Etc. It […]
