It's time to get clear-eyed about what is working and what isn't and precisely how different the Sox of today truly are from their not so recent past! WSI's George Bova notes it is a passion for winning that has always defined every Sox Fan, and there is no time like right now to bring this fact into sharp focus!
August 23... Sox Gift Wrap Another
Javier Vazquez had a perfect game into the sixth inning, but allowed a hit and for the second time in as many days, the bullpen gave away the lead, and eventually the game.
August 19...Beer Shower For Clayton Richard
Clayton Richard gets his first major league win, while Jim Thome and co. provide him with an ample amount of early support, as our Sox kept the M's at bay with a 5-0 victory.
A Pennant Race!
Five and one-half months of baseball have been played and not one damned thing has been decided in the American League Central Division. The Sox are locked into a death struggle and isn't it magnificent! WINNING baseball is the unique providence of Sox Fans and as WSI's George Bova notes, this 2008 team is uniquely-positioned to remind everyone of what South Side baseball has always been about. Just win, baby!
Bob Grim Speaks!
If you're a Sox Fan and you don't live in metro Chicago, Bob Grim is a very important man for you! As Sox Senior Director of Business Development and Broadcasting, it's Bob working with national broadcasts, helping resolve "black out" issues, and making support of the Sox attractive to the widest group of Sox Fans he possibly can. Speaking for all of "White Sox country" is Bob's job! Now he speaks directly to WSI's totally biased Sox Fans with unique insights to share. Another EXCLUSIVE interview from White Sox Interactive and Mark Liptak!
Hope & Vickery
Jose Contreras is lost for the remainder of the season but it's only the biggest of many other injuries plaguing the Sox. Arms are juggled in and out of the bullpen and now reliever D.J. Carrasco is favored to start. WSI's Hal Vickery knows a lot about hope and shares a timely personal perspective.
Going For It!
Ken Griffey, Jr. joins a Sox team to fill a hole the Sox back in April could never have predicted they would need to fill. There is a different attitude that surrounds this ballclub, one that not even Sox teams of the 90's ever enjoyed. WSI's George Bova makes no postseason predictions, but appreciates what has already been demonstrated. The Old Sox are dead!
