MLB: Chicago White Sox at Texas Rangers

South Side Morning 5: Mama Said There’ll Be Weekends Like This

A 10-5 win Sunday made for a satisfying end to an otherwise moribund weekend for the White Sox, as the series-ending win over the Rangers was preceded by a pair of losses where the White Sox were collectively outscored 24-7. 1. An uptick in velocity and command of his breaking pitches were the main fuel behind a […]

MLB: Game Two-Chicago White Sox at Minnesota Twins

South Side Morning 10: White Sox Split With Twins

1. Yoan Moncada was the only White Sox player to score in the first game of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Twins. He led off the game with his eighth home run of the season which was an absolute bomb to centerfield. Moncada then scored another run in the fifth inning when he was driven home by a Jose […]

1. The most significant news of the weekend, as you’ve undoubtedly read, was the White Sox announcing that reliever Danny Farquhar suffered a brain hemorrhage brought on by a ruptured aneurysm during Friday’s game against the Astros. He is in stable but critical condition at Rush University Medical Center. There’s not much to say about […]

South Side Morning 5: Tigers Sweep? I’m Not Mad, You’re Mad

Friday was frustrating, but as Collin wrote, good stuff happened and veteran relievers blowing a game is not cause for panic or canceling the rebuild.  I have not revised my opinion of Nate Jones or Joakim Soria as a result.  In a rebuilding season, losing three games against the Tigers shouldn’t matter in and of […]
