Who is in the crowd attending Sox games under the Arizona sun? Friends, neighbors, and sometimes even old acquaintances fill the seats. And as WSI's Pascal Marco notes, tailgating in March can be quite lovely.
Shoeless, Weaver & Rose: No Groveling in Baseball!
Sox Fan Nelson Algren had no trouble spotting injustice and hypocrisy over 50 years ago, and Bill James is not a Sox Fan and still can't find it. WSI's George Bova wonders if all those hating Pete Rose today, Sox Fans and non-Sox Fans alike, would ever want the sort of hall of fame Bill James would give them?
Spring Forward to Baseball Already!
The clocks have already be set forward, though the weather is hardly cooperating, but WSI's Hal Vickery wants the games to begin! Only the pitching staff remains the biggest obstacle...
A Baseball Museum for Chicago
For well over 100 years Chicago has been the center of the baseball universe beyond the Alleghenies. For most of the not-so recent history, it's been a sorry history of lousy teams sprinkled with great stars, but new history has now been written! As WSI's Hal Vickery reports, the city's baseball history is about to come alive as never before if the dreams of Dr. David Fletcher ever come true. He's working on it now!
Good Enough Line up?
Speculative rumors about Sox roster moves never go out of season. The seemingly endless speculation over the possible return of Aaron Rowand has heated up again. While others might busy themselves over Rowand's return pretending to have insights to share, WSI's George Bova can't help but note the basic truth to what the 2007 White Sox really need... and it isn't necessarily pitching!
Spring Training World Series?
For some folks it's never too early to reach for dumb platitudes or stretch reality to its breaking point... but the Sox had to visit Mesa to play the Cubs anyway. WSI's Pascal Marco was there with this report.
Our Guy Ozzie
It's never dull being a Sox Fan and Ozzie Guillen helps make it so! Besides being the winningest championship manager in 89 years of Chicago baseball, WSI's George Bova wants to know what else makes this guy an unappreciated gem?
You can nearly always count on the local media to make life interesting -- if not filled with laughter -- when talking about our Chicago White Sox. WSI's Hal Vickery notes that just because the latest Ozzie controversy is nearly over, doesn't mean the media hasn't already got their sights set on the next one: spelled "A-J".
