On the Brink
At what point does a point of fact simply become a lame excuse? The 2009 White Sox may certainly have been on the brink the past six months, but a final record four games below .500 can't be easily explained away as anything more than wishful thinking about how much promise this team ever delivered on the field. WSI's Mark Liptak sums up a season that ends too soon.
A Good Decade
The conclusion of the 2009 Sox season brings to a close the first of the new century (close enough) and the first complete decade in WSI history, too. How do these ten seasons, 2000 through 2009, stack up in the big scheme of South Side baseball? As Mark Liptak notes, it was a very good decade!
