Game 2014.18: White Sox at Tigers

Andre Rienzo vs. Drew Smyly in the penultimate game of the series. May the real Drew Smyly please stand up. No more talk about “rust,” now.  May the sweet swings of Miguel Cabrera and Alex Avila continue, so that we can move to worrying about/picking on someone else for a change. May the bullpen not be plagued with sudden and retroactive elbow inflammations like they were last...

Felipe Paulino to DL, Andre Rienzo Called Up ☆

After his brutal outing Friday in Texas, most figured Felipe Paulino‘s time in the White Sox’ rotation had run out. Saturday afternoon he was sent to the disabled list with rotator cuff inflammation, proving many right. The team called up Andre Rienzo from AAA Charlotte to take his spot after making ten starts for the team late last season. We recently discussed Paulino’s immediate...

Rienzo lasts 4 innings as ChiSox lose to Tribe 8-1

Fox announcer needs geography lesson

This is one of the funniest broadcast bloopers we've seen this year.  During Fox's national broadcast of White Sox-Twins on Saturday, the play by play man was giving a brief biography of Chicago's starting pitcher Andre Rienzo.  (It was listed initially as Dick Stockton, but it sure sounds like Twins announcer Dick Bremer, perhaps someone can leave a note in the comments...

Observations on Andre Rienzo

Here are some of my thoughts and observations on Rienzo after his second career big league start. First off...

Do You Know Andre Rienzo? Well, You Should

Every year around this time, the fantasy landscape undergoes a rapid shift. Teams that thought they had closer stability are left lacking — though this hasn’t been the case thus far this season, Jose Veras aside — and the first teams to pounce of young talent waiting for a call-up or platoon players prime for playing time often end up with top-150 talents at no cost.It’s...

White Sox folding fast on Peavy talk

The Chicago White Sox have only the Houston Astros buffering them from the floor of the American League. With a roster lacking talent, depth or potential the White Sox were sellers when the season began. Yet it is July 30 and the White Sox are talking about building their team around 32-year-old Jake Peavy. Peavy is a fine pitcher when healthy. He no longer has the dominating stuff...

Rienzo Dominant As Bisons Fall

Entering with a 2-2 record and an 8.27 ERA, Bisons fans had to assume that Buffalo was poised to have a big night Monday against Charlotte Knights starting pitcher Andre Rienzo. Unfortunately for the Herd, games aren’t played on paper as Rienzo had one of his best starts of the season, limiting the Bisons to only one run as Charlotte took down Buffalo 5-1. While Rienzo was shutting...
