Some Fans Don't Quit

Was it the "Ricky's Boys Don't Quit" t-shirts? Or the opportunity to see if the Sox could break out of their slump at home where their record was 3-15?

We hear how Ricky's Boys Don't Quit, but even quitters might have been able to eke a few more wins than these guys have at this juncture.

Welcome To The Regression

We've been offered the Kool-Aid by the Sox PR gurus. Like most fans, I very much want to drink the Kool-Aid, but I've never been fond of the lemon-lime that they're offering. I like the red kind. The cherry. Once it's an option, give me a pint.

I've yet to get my arms around the rationale that spending $50 on a ticket to risk frostbite promotes enjoyment. We have the NFL for that.

Mighty Matt Davidson

Acquired from the Diamondbacks for Addison Reed, he seemed a bust - until Thursday.

Instant Replay Radio

This has happened before. Maybe not quite like today, but the White Sox found themselves scrambling to find a radio outlet during the winter 47 years ago too, which is exactly what's going on right now.

This Is Your Brain On White Sox

What's nice about this week is that the Sox don't play until Friday when the Mariners come to town for three games. We could use a break. Our overwrought anterior cingulate cortexes need a rest.

Walking And Leading Off

Is it not clear that Frazier is a markedly better hitter early in the game with no one on base in addition to his ability to draw bases on balls?

Todd Frazier Should Lead Off. Seriously.

He's been a disaster with men on base his whole career, yet Ricky Renteria insists on batting him fourth or fifth.
