May 27...Buehrle Gets Beat Like a Drum
Mark Buehrle continues to struggle on the mound, while the meat of our lineup couldn't cash-in with much-needed clutch hits in key situations, as our Sox dropped the middle game in this series at Progressive Field.
It's a wide-open division and more than that, its a division title for the Chicago White Sox to lose! The Sox have months of baseball ahead of them to play but they've done everything needed (so far) to make a successful run to the post-season. WSI's George Bova notes it's always better to be lucky than good. So far the 2008 Sox have been both!
May 20...Toothless Toons
After a long 10-game road trip, our Sox returned home and punched the teeth out of that smile on Chief Wahoo's face, scoring early and adding insurance late, in a 4-1 mastery of the Toons.
Chet Coppock Speaks!
Whether drawing more wrestling fans to Sox Park than the '70 Sox could draw baseball fans, covering roller derby nationwide, announcing Chicago Cougars hockey at the old International Amphitheater, or covering any of the city's major sports clubs, Chet Coppock has done it all with a unique flair truly his own! Years before lesser talents turned sports talk into mere sportsblab, it was Coppock alone on the radio dial hosting a world of sports personalities virtually inventing the show format from scratch. Now Chet speaks to totally biased Sox Fans of his time on the South Side, watching and covering both the triumphs and disasters of the Sox, his past mentors and his ongoing passion for the game. Another EXCLUSIVE interview by Mark Liptak and WSI!
May 17... Buehrle & Co. Hit Their Way to Victory
Timely hitting negates the multiple runners stranded on base throughout the game and the bullpen comes through in a key situation, as the Sox take the series against the Giants.
Moms & Sox Fans
Whatever you can say about your life as a Sox Fan, never forget who made you you... most of all your mom! WSI's Hal Vickery shares memories growing up a Sox Fan inside his mom's home. She never disowned him either!!!
May 8... Showing Some Swagger
Decent hitting and fundamentally sound baserunning? Toss in a couple of long balls for good measure? Good start by John Danks? Excellent outing by star arms in the bullpen? It all came together today, baby!
Few Runs, No Wins!
Timely hitting has been absent, the runs aren't there and neither have the Sox victories! The slumping Sox are having troubles at the plate and as WSI's Hal Vickery notes, it is the vaunted middle of the order that is most culpable. Can Carlos Quentin bat clean up? How long before Ozzie tries it?
