The Daily Grind: 4-0 $weep yesterday (8/21/14)

We swept the card yesterday at the Daily Grind, going a perfect 4-0.  Let’s take a look at a quick recap. Edwin Jackson got shelled again. The over was a winner by the 4th inning.  I’m not sure how he gets another start in a Cubs uniform.  Baltimore got to Hector Noesi in the 4th inning and held on to beat the White Sox 4-3.  Our 2 play of the days were easy wins.  The Angels...

The Daily Grind: Chicago’s Guide to Handicapping MLB ( 8/20/14)

What a fiasco last night at Wrigley Field.  The grounds crew had some problems with the tarp, which in turn led to the game being called final after 4.5 innings.  This caused our under play to be voided and our Giants play to lose.  Tough loss to swallow on the north side last night.  On the south side, Baltimore finally got to Quintana in the 6th and again the Sox only scored...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Aug 15

Yesterday’s late-game lineup was constructed from an extremely small set of six games. It scored 124.50 points and finished in the 82nd percentile of all Moonshot entries. Originally I thought it was going to be a big day as Adam LaRoche, Bryce Harper, and Jhonny Peralta all homered in their first at-bats, but after combining for 48 points in those three at-bats the trio contributed...

Last Place Rangers Take the Rubber Match As Offense Leaves Sale Hanging

On Sunday, the White Sox began a three-game series at home against the Major League-worst Texas Rangers. The series looked promising at first, as Rangers’ ace Yu Darvish would be on the bench for all three games after another strong outing on Saturday (7 IP, 4 H, 2 BB, 8 K). With Hector Noesi, John Danks, and Chris Sale scheduled to pitch, the White Sox were in prime position to...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, August 5

Yesterday was a good showing for me on DraftKings. I entered three lineups, all of which placed. In my Official Lineup, which was actually the lowest scoring of the three, Corey Kluber dominated and Kevin Gausman rebounded after a slow start to contribute a decent point total. I correctly pegged my Indians stack with both Yan Gomes and Lonnie Chisenhall homering and Michael Brantley...

After Ugly Weekend Series, White Sox Set To Host Baseball’s Worst

The White Sox conclude their short homestand with a three game series against the Texas Rangers.  The Sox dropped two of three to the Twins in the first series thanks to some truly blowful pitching by their bullpen.  The Sox are now 54-58 on the season and 28-26 at home and despite the bad series against Minnesota, have still won six of their last ten. The Rangers come in with...

Sox in Enemy Territory – Games 2 and 3

The White Sox took to the field for game two of the series with high hopes after winning game one. Hector Noesi against Max Scherzer was going to be a real pitchers duel. Noesi has been building on some great outings and this one would need to be one of his best for the Sox to have a chance. An hour’s rain delay would be the hiccup that the Sox did not need. the bottom of the first...

Tigers' bats boom again -- briefly

DETROIT -- The Tigers' offense didn't wake up for long Wednesday night, but it did plenty of damage before hitting the snooze button again in a 7-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox. After a feeble weekend performance in Anaheim and a 11-4 loss to the White Sox on Tuesday night at Comerica Park, things didn't get much better when Austin Jackson struck out on eight pitches...

Game 2014.104: White Sox at Tigers

Baseball Reference Game Preview Hector Noesi vs. Max Scherzer Let me offer the following radical theory as to why the Tigers lose when they lose: The players didn’t play well enough. I know I’m going out on a limb to suggest that players on the field are responsible for making the plays, getting the outs, and scoring the runs, but I’ve decided to make this my bully pulpit for...

White Sox Sign Chien-Ming Wang, Trade Dylan Axelrod

The White Sox had a busy Thursday ahead of the second half of the regular season getting underway Friday evening. With the gigantic question marks that are Hector Noesi and Scott Carroll rounding out the team’s rotation, many wondered what the backup plan to those guys would be the rest of the year. As fill-in starters, both have been tremendous for this team, but it’d be silly...

White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper altered the release point for Hector Noesi, then he tinkered with his follow through, and ultimately he has rebuilt his confidence. The 27-year-old right-hander joined the Sox off waivers from the Rangers on April 25 with an ERA of 14.21. After Sunday's 1-0 victory over the Mariners, Noesi's ERA dipped to a much more respectable 4.90...

With one swing of the bat, Miguel Cabrera helped awaken the Detroit Tigers’ offense Monday night. Ultimately, his efforts were not enough to help the Tigers avoid another loss, this time a 6-5 defeat. But Cabrera did deliver a highlight in the fourth inning, absolutely teeing off on a Hector Noesi pitch and launching it more than 400 feet for his 12th homer of the season. Your...
