    Not the end of the world, but Sox fatalists can see it from here
    If you are a White Sox fatalist -- one of the 30,000 or so who were smart enough not to fill the Cell for Tuesday night’s joke against Minnesota -- then you have good reason to warm up the car and close the garage door on this season. Yeah, the Sox...

    White Sox need more starts like Quintana's

    Sox MVP: Williams
    Barring some miraculous turn of events this weekend, these are our final chances to reflect on the improbable 2012 White Sox. Much of the audience already has headed for the exits, so I'm going to roll closing credits now and avoid an empty theater next...

    Sox trade for Liriano shores up rotation
    You have to hand it to Kenny Williams. While the White Sox general manager didn't land Zack Greinke, like the Angels' Jerry DiPoto, who did, he has found ways to improve on the fly. Williams filled major holes when he traded for Kevin Youkilis and Brett...

    Waiting for a deal, Theo. Waiting. Wait--ing.

    Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Sox mailbag
    Do you think Sox overpaid for Brett Myers? The player to be named later is most likely a high 2011 draft pick, which is why they have to wait. Jim F., Denver Jim, thanks for your patience. I realize you submitted this question before the player to be...
