  7. White Sox Week In (P)Review: Coming Back, Looking Up

    The slow play. I won a $20 in a poker tournament with my friends on Sunday night, as the White Sox departed for Cleveland after their win over the Cubs. I didn't win any big hands. Probably never more than 40 chips at a time...

  12. Division Debate: Crede Trade Could Be More J's Than Sox Can Handle

    Say it ain't so, Joe. First we had to deal with Justin, A.J. and Eddie Guardado. That was bad enough. Then they brought up that Mauer kid and the Neshek guy with the funky windup. Worse, but we could handle it...

  17. Chicago White Sox Week in Review: Sticking and Moving

    Amazing, isn't it? It's crazy how the Sox do so well when they just do what I tell them to do. Last week, I said that they needed to sweep the Royals—and they did. I said that a road-series win in Oakland was absolutely necessary...
