I was with you until the puppy kicking. And Chris Sale is not a concern.

Now these are going to be the fun games to watch. No illusions that they are contenders this year. If they win great and if they lose so be it. I just want to see what kind of moves they will make to improve the team in the years ahead. White Sox baseball you have to love it.

I don't know, I'm pretty sure he'll never have injury problems as long there is a permanent frown on his face. Next time he pumps his fist after a strikeout, or even cracks a smile, make him run sprints.

Don't forget (as much as you want to), losing three to the Cubs to start this turd stretch rolling downhill.

Before tonight, the Sox had scored two earned runs in 44.2 innings against Guthrie over the last two years. Tonight, they get six off him in 2.1 innings.

Maybe the law of averages finally caught up with ol' Catfish. He couldn't sustain that 0.40 ERA against the Sox forever.

That was, indeed, a White Sox laugher! And there haven't been too many of those lately.
+1

I also enjoyed watching the game last night. It was fun to see the Sox play well and have fun. Kudos to Viciedo, Santiago, et al.

Keep on winning, White Sox!

An incredibly talented team of grinders made every Sox fan's dream come true. My family and I celebrated with reckless abandon. And now, we look forward to that day when our White Sox will once again be World Series Champions!

Who knows, maybe they'd score more runs if it were viewed at least as a semi-typical thing.

Yes. Exactly. It's not a game and it's not supposed to be fun. Let's win 15 straight in a completely business-like manner.

Yikes. Looks like the humor was missed on both sides, then. I very much enjoy a consistent display of camaraderie and grindy-ness, but the way those two specifically embrace each time is weirdly somber. They appear to be the opposite of amped up, and instead look more sad and relieved than anything.

Nevertheless, it's obviously time to move on from this observation.

Yay, team!
