Tigers 8, White Sox 4: Reality arrives in the fifth

  The White Sox started a pitcher Tuesday night who came into the game with a 9.61 ERA, with more walks than strikeouts, and who had more than a third of the hits he had allowed leave the ballpark entirely. There was good reason to expect the Sox would allow a garish run total to a fearsome Detroit offense with Anthony Ranaudo on the hill, and eventually they brought that expectation...

Tigers 8, White Sox 4: Long leash, then wrong guy

Familiar mistakes by Robin Ventura cement Sox in standings This game effectively buries the White Sox. Granted, they were out of it before, but an encouraging homestand and a three-game series against a direct competitor gave them the slightest sense of control. Sweep the series, and they’d be .500 and 3½ games behind Detroit. Winning two wouldn’t have accomplished much, but...

Maybe the White Sox should load up on lefties for last stand

The White Sox offense is fine against left-handed pitching, but that hasn't proven to be particularly useful Nate Jones’ third appearance in as many games didn’t go as well as his first two, as he gave up the game-winning two-run homer to Jarrod Saltalamacchia in a 4-3 loss to Detroit Monday night. Still, Jones did get something out of it — a share of the league lead in games...

White Sox catching gamble was doomed from the start

When the White Sox made the call to move away from Tyler Flowers in the offseason, the mindset behind the decision was likely that they were willing to sacrifice some defense for better offense. Moving on from Flowers made sense, as despite being heralded as a prospect whose bat would play even if his defense was questionable, Flowers never became an above-average hitter, and most...

Woeful starter has a chance to make franchise history in his final start of the month The White Sox are coming off a satisfying 6-3 homestand, in which they took series from the Athletics and Mariners around a split with the Phillies.

Jose Abreu Should Be Embarrassed

Here is one of my favorite clips of the season: That’s Ronald Torreyes, attempting a delayed and perfunctory swing at a pitch-out to try to protect the running Aaron Hicks, who ends up in a heap on the ground after getting jarred in the marbles. Torreyes swings for no reason other than he’s always been told to swing in these situations, so the decision was entirely out of his...
