Pre-game formalities

The day of the first games of the All-Time White Sox series dawned bright, crisp and clear. There was an unmistakable buzz in the air, the kind that comes in October when postseason baseball comes to town. Four White Sox teams would meet in these semi-final best-of-seven series to determine which of them would earn the right to call itself the "Greatest White Sox team of All-Time." White Sox fans across ages and generations eagerly anticipated the games, many of which would see old Comiskey...

I have been wanting to get back to my sim tourney, but haven't, I guess because I don't want to get bogged down in minutia. It is one thing to have these "games" it is quite another to actually sit down, analyze them, study them, and offer commentary. So for this first round (which I played in April) I'll merely post the results.

Round 1: 1983 (99-63) vs. 1993 (94-68)

The 1983 "Winning Ugly" White Sox, one of the most fondly remembered teams in franchise...

Chicago sports

I'll put this here instead of a thread.

I find myself disliking Chicago sports, except for the White Sox. Seriously. I don't follow the Bears anymore. I used to be a huge fan. Now I couldn't care less if their QB is Jake Cutler, Rhett Butler or whoever the hell it will be next year. Big freaking deal. Same with the Bulls. YAWN. I don't care.

"Released" Is Another Word for "Laid Off"

Posted 05-19-2009 at 08:43 PM by tebman (Try To Hit 'Em Where They Ain't)

Jerry Owens found a job in the Seattle Mariners organization. I'm glad he did. After his shoulder injury and whatever other afflictions, he couldn't regain the flash of promise he showed in AA ball in 2005. When the White Sox released him on May 2nd he was only hitting .083 and was let go to make room for another on the conveyor belt of players who show promise.

I was thinking about Owens and the many players gone before who've been released. I thought of the scene in "Bull...
