Greatest White Sox team, Part II

So, I sat down to try and measure, statistically, the greatest single-season White Sox team ever. I decided the way to do this was to measure them against the rest of the American League for that particular season. How good were they against the competition? That seemed the fairest way to judge teams across decades, even centuries.

Now, I will admit this system I came up with might be flawed. It is my own system, based on nothing except my idea of how to measure teams. I call this...

Mac gone, Egbert on his way

Posted 04-21-2009 at 05:26 PM by Lundind1

In a season that is assured to provide Sox fans with tons of twists and turns, the Sox make a definative move. With most fans saying, "bout time" or something along those lines, the Sox designated Mike MacDougal for assignment to Charlotte and called up Jack Egbert from the same.

MacDougal, whose ERA ballooned to a whopping 12.46 with 6 ER in 4-1/3 pitched, is going to be running out of options at the Major League level. It might be time for him to start thinking more long...

I was talking with a friend recently who doesn't follow baseball but humors me when I wax poetic about the White Sox. In the course of that conversation I referred him to the YouTube videos posted by "brokertothestars" that give a walk-through tour of old Comiskey Park in the last weeks of its life. If you haven't seen them, you should. There have been a couple of threads about these that are fun to read.

What I told my friend is that being at the ballpark is what makes baseball...

Cycling for the cycle

Posted 04-21-2009 at 12:47 PM by Lundind1

It is interesting that in the first 2 weeks of the season we have seen the numbers coming in that we have, at least in terms of players hitting for the cycle. And by that I mean 3 is an interesting number so early in a season, or ever for that matter.

For those of you who don't know what a cycle is (I hope that you do) it is a single, double, triple, and home run in the same game. A natural is when you do it in just that order. There have been exactly 14 natural cycles in MLB to date,...

Greatest White Sox team of All Time

I am at work and bored silly. I don't do much, but that doesn't mean I will do this all day. I just want to post a few thoughts.

I was reading a book on Yankee myths, legends and such. The dude who wrote it compared the teams considered the 3 greatest in team history-1927, 1961 and 1998 to determine which one was the best of the bunch. He used a bunch of statistics that I don't recall right now, but his conclusion was that it was a toss up. All three dominated in one category or other...
