"Greatest White Sox Team of All Time" simulation tournament

Posted 05-15-2009 at 03:50 PM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

So I decided to have a little fun with my "Greatest White Sox Team of All-Time" rankings and submit them to a tournament to see who would beat who over a seven-game series. Now I have no delusions about how such scenarios would actually play out. It would be enormous fun if we could somehow get all these teams together and see them play-and how it would turn out. For now, though, I turn to whatifsports.com computer simulations. Kind of stinks in that I would much rather do it the old-fashioned...

Shutouts Maybe, But No Shutdowns

Posted 05-14-2009 at 02:30 PM by tebman (Try To Hit 'Em Where They Ain't)

Six shutouts in 33 games. I put those words right out front to remind me why, in answer to a question last night, I told a friend that I didn't know when the next Sox game was scheduled.

But that was the malaise talking. Of course I knew when the next game was and who the Sox were playing. It's just that I find myself drifting in an arid stupor somewhere between anger and resignation after watching my team look like pigeons out there. And all I can do is feed the birds and hope they...

To be or not to be...Cubsessed

"Cubsession" n.-An obsession with the Chicago National League Ballclub, Inc. Said to afflict several rooters of the *sneer* other team in town, if one does truly exist. *sneer*

I have been thinking about "Cubsession," that fine, badly overused word coined here on WSI, lately. I have several rambling, disjointed thoughts about it. I just thought I would share a few in the privacy of my own blog, where you are free to come and read it if you like. It isn't on the...

Thanks, Mark

Playing with the pencil in my hand Thursday night, my mind wandered. I was sitting in the midst of a meeting where the discussion floated between topics like clouds on a breezy day, and I realized I had no idea what was being discussed.

The cellphone buzzed in my pocket. It was a text message from my son asking me if I was watching the White Sox game. "No," I wrote back, "I'm at a meeting. What's going on?"

He wrote back to tell me that Mark Buehrle...

Baseball on Ice

Posted 05-04-2009 at 02:39 PM by tebman (Try To Hit 'Em Where They Ain't)

We had tickets to Opening Day. The key word there is "had," because the game was snowed out and postponed until the next day. Disappointing, but it happens. This is April in Chicago after all.

We couldn't make it to the next day's game so I exchanged the tickets for April 28th. A bummer, because I love Opening Day: the crowd, the pageantry, the spring-is-here feeling that accompanies the event. But I already had tickets to the April 25th game and I resigned myself to making...
