With the first month of the season now in the books, the 2007 Sox find themselves in the middle of a huge dogfight for the Central Division title! Whether Sox Fans are pleased with the progress or merely pissed off, WSI's George Bova can't help but note why these "New" Sox should never be confused with the "Old" Sox that we supported for 88 losing years.
April 27...Live & Let Dye
Jose Contreras throws a decent game, and the Sox offense gives a balanced attack, as Chicago's only baseball team secures a victory on a mildly chilly evening in the greatest city in the world.
Buehrle's Goose Eggs!
The Sox season has taken a dramatic turn with Mark Buehrle's historic no-hitter against Texas! Now WSI's Jim Laffer looks for the first signs of what else might make this 2007 season so historic for Sox Fans, too!
April 20...Dank You Very Much
John Danks has a little bit of bad luck in his inability to secure his first victory in a Sox uniform; however, the Sox offense provides the team with enough of a boost to knock off the Detroit Tigers 5-4.
Jim Kaat Speaks!
Staff ace of the mid-70s Sox, two-time 20 game winner on the South Side, Jim Kaat was yet another leading member of the tough as nails Sox pitching staffs that traced their roots all the way back to the Go-Go era of the 1950s. Now totally biased Sox Fans at WSI can catch up with this Sox Great from the memorable red pinstripes era of Sox baseball, another EXCLUSIVE interview by Mark Liptak for White Sox Interactive! Who loves you, Sox Fans?
John Danks can't get any run support, Sox bats are chilly, and it's April. If the pitchers are usually ahead of the hitters this time of year, can we hope what ails the Sox hitters is nothing more than a few warm days under the sun -- hopefully sooner rather than later? WSI's Hal Vickery is just one more enquiring Sox Fan!
South Side Tourism!
A lot of the discussion surrounding the young Sox season says more about the people doing the talking than it says about the Sox. WSI's George Bova finds three topics nearly any Sox Fan can agree upon in this young season -- and South Side tourism is one of them!
April 14...No Offense, but Sox Bats Stink Today!
No wrath should be placed upon John Danks for this one, as the Sox' offense gives him absolutely no help during a 4-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians early this afternoon.
Avoid Cold -- Double-up!
The Sox are just one team victimized by the unseasonably frigid April weather gripping most of baseball, but what can be done about it? WSI's Hal Vickery has some common sense ideas for keeping warm, so naturally not one of them has a snowball's chance in hell of being adopted by Major League Baseball! Keep bundled up, Sox Fans!
Another season of memories, nicely toasted under the Arizona sun, have been stored away for Sox Fan Pascal Marco. The chilled air of Chicago's early spring is the next stop, and a new set of memorable feats is what all Sox Fans now look forward to!
We want a Dynasty!
Finally spring training has ended and the season of meaningless games has mercifully ended! WSI's Hal Vickery is revved up and there is speaks with an unequivocal voice about what he expects. Too much is never enough!
Winning -- it starts now!
The start of the 2007 Sox season is like no other point in Sox history in 89 years on the South Side! Sox Fans are united in the cause of recapturing the championship crown, but as WSI's George Bova notes, there is a sinister and insidious force to be watched for and avoided. Godspeed to these new Sox!
