It's hard to imagine a period of faster change than the three years Jeff Torborg managed the White Sox. From 92 losses his first season to 94 wins the following year, challenging the eventual A.L. champion Athletics throughout the final summer at Old Comiskey Park. Now the ex-manager speaks directly to Sox Fans about this memorable period and highly unusual events leading to his ouster after the 1991 season. It's another EXCLUSIVE interview by Mark Liptak for the totally biased Sox Fans of White Sox Interactive!

Gavin Floyd had another sub-par outing, but fortunately, so did Toronto's Rickey Romero, and the Sox took advantage! Unfortunately, Bobby Jenks snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
May 7... The Buck Stops Here
The White Sox fail to execute in key situations while Ozzie continues to be asleep behind. Ozzieball tonight featured three homers, but that wasn’t enough to contain John Buck’s dominance of Sox pitching.
