Twins-White Sox Preview

It's been nearly two months since the Chicago White Sox won three in a row. Those victories were against the Minnesota Twins, who come to Chicago looking to prevent the White Sox from matching that win streak Friday night. Chicago (66-80) won the first three matchups in a four-game series at Minnesota in late July, then went on to lose 26 of 39 before taking the final two of...

Adam Dunn Returns To Chicago

This week, Adam Dunn is back in Chicago to face off against his former team, The Chicago White Sox. Now that Adam Dunn is on a team that was desperate for an extra bat and deep in a playoff race, what was his reception like during his first at-bat at U.S. Cellular Field? Fortunately, I was there first hand to witness the game. (The picture above is Adam Dunn during his first at...

The Daily Grind: Underdog Tuesday (9/9/14)

Baltimore did their part last night on my 2 unit play on the over. However, Boston’s bats crawled into a hole and didn’t come out all game. They had the bases loaded with 1 out in the 7th, but failed to do anything with it. The Cubs got smoked as expected and Marcus Strohman threw his first career complete game shut out. I will circle his next start. If you paid attention yesterday...

Tyler Flowers powers White Sox to victory over A's in extras

Before six days ago, Tyler Flowers never had a multi-home run game in his career. But the White Sox catcher followed up last week’s performance in Minneapolis with two solo homers in Monday night’s 5-4 stunner over the Oakland A’s in 12 innings at U.S. Cellular Field. Three innings after he tied it with a solo homer off A’s closer Eric O'Flaherty with the White Sox...

Athletics-White Sox Preview

The Oakland Athletics again have to pick themselves up after blowing a ninth-inning lead in a defeat. The stumbling AL wild card leaders could be hard-pressed to give Jon Lester some run support Tuesday night when they continue this four-game road series against the Chicago White Sox. Oakland (80-63) has played six straight one-run games, losing five of them with blown one-run, ninth...

Tyler Flowers hits tying, winning homers for White Sox vs. A's

  Tyler Flowers shocked the Oakland Athletics on Monday night -- but probably no more than he surprised himself. Flowers hit a solo home run to tie the game in the ninth inning and then added another to win it in the 12th, leading the Chicago White Sox to an improbable 5-4 victory. The catcher became the first player to hit a game-tying home run in the ninth and a game-winning homer...

White Sox Announcer Delivers Incredibly Uninspired Home Run Call (Video)

The Chicago White Sox’s season is done, and so is broadcaster Steve Stone. The 62-75 Sox haven’t given fans much to get pumped about this year, but even when they do put on a show, their announcers can’t even fake a little enthusiasm. During the 10th inning of Tuesday’s game against the Minnesota Twins, Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning to extend Chicago’s...

White Sox announcer gives incredibly unenthusiastic home run call

Chicago White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer in the top of the 10th inning Tuesday to give the team a 6-3 cushion in a victory over the Twins.  Outside of first baseman Jose Abreu's emergence and another season of Chris Sale dominance, the 62-75 White Sox have had little to celebrate.  Nevertheless, Flowers' shot failed to jolt White Sox television color...

White Sox Player Attempts to Save Roster Spot

Typically when one says that a player is having a “career-year,” you expect the numbers to be pretty great. While the White Sox respect this guy’s season, his numbers aren’t so great for other players at his position. Tyler Flowers has set career highs in RBIs (45) and HRs (12) this season, as well as AVG (.240) and On-Base Percentage (.298). That’s all well and good, but...

WATCH: Presenting the worst home run call in MLB history

It’s easy to use hyperbole in sports blogging, but the headline here is no exaggeration. The following clip comes from Tuesday night’s White Sox-Twins game, and believe it or not, the man behind this home run call is not Hawk Harrelson, but broadcast partner Steve Stone. Stone has been taking turns at the mic doing play-by-play for some innings and subbing for Harrelson.  On...

Time to Trim the Fat, Tyler Flowers Needs to Go

To Block the Plate, or Not Block the Plate, That’s the Question

This experiment has gone terribly wrong.  Your browser does not support iframes.This has caused no end to the confusion for the majority of Major League Baseball, especially the White Sox.

Can the Giants make adjustments to right the ship?

The San Francisco Giants were in desperate need of a spark, anything that could snap them out of a two-month-long malaise. One-run deficits had become nearly insurmountable, and what was once the best team in baseball was quickly fading in the NL West race. The return of fiery leadoff man Angel Pagan had failed to ignite them. Playing in front of their daily sellout crowds wasn...

Giants shut out, win 7-1 via appellate court ruling

I'm not okay with that. I am vehemently against home-plate collisions. I was before Buster Posey; I really was after Buster Posey. I've written thousands and thousands of words about home-plate collisions. I've been called a "limp-wristed, dress-wearing, SF girly man writer who knows NOTHING about baseball and who probably would LOVE for the teams to look more like...

Robin Ventura Flips Out, Kicks Dirt After Overturned Call At Home (Video)

Major League Baseball’s head-scratching home-plate obstruction rule has claimed yet another victim.

Rule 7.13 (2) Was Applied Correctly

I’ve heard a lot of huffing from people who aren’t Hawk Harrelson to say this: Rule 7.13 (2) was applied correctly yesterday in San Francisco. Your browser does not support iframes. From the start, Tyler Flowers was in front of the plate.  Watch the play.  His left foot never leaves foul ground in the entire play.  The momentum of the throw didn’t take him into the path...
