In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."

White Sox 78-74, 5th, GB 17.5

New faces dominated the scene on the South Side this year-Ray Schalk took over as full-time catcher at age 20, Morrie Rath held down 2nd base, and the Sox acquired talented 1st baseman Hal Chase from the New York Yankees. Chase had been in the league since 1905 and was constantly and openly suspected of cavorting with unseemly characters and tanking plays and games. For some reason, Comiskey wanted him anyway, believing...

White Sox 78-76, 4th, 28 GB

The White Sox jumped out of the starting gate in 1912, going 23-6 in the first few weeks of play. Youth and inexperience took over after that, and the team went 55-70 the rest of the way to finish up at 78-76. It was good enough for the first division-barely-as they managed to place 4th. New additions to the team this year were Buck Weaver, Ray Schalk and Eddie Cicotte.

Pitcher Cicotte of the Red Sox had fought...

White Sox 77-74, 4th, 24 GB

The White Sox surged a bit in 1911, toeing the .500 line throughout the season before finishing three games over that mark and returning to the first division after a one-year absence.

The hitting improved this year, indicated by the team BA of .269 and 19 home runs. "Ping" Bodie and Shano Collins led the way with a team record 4.

Ed Walsh continued to be, well, Ed Walsh. He rebounded...

Once again, the Cubs and Sox would take a break from the West Side-South Side uncivil war to allow the Cubs to partake in that year's World Series.

White Sox 68-85, 6th, 35.5 GB

The Sox hit a slump this year, falling to 68-85 and 6th place. It was their first visit to the second division since 1903, when they placed 7th. Former NL batting champ Hugh Duffy took over as manager, making him the first full-time manager (as opposed...
