Sox News

Voting for the All Star game has opened.

I know a lot of people wont vote for the boys, with all that’s going on. Saying that they don’t deserve it. I vote for our boys no matter what. It’s still supporting the team. It’s a positive and at least to me the boys could use some positives now.

On June 1 Danny threw out the first pitch. How amazing was that to see him again. The doctors have told Danny that he wont pitch again this year but he can start playing catch.

I saw an interview with Danny and his wife, Danny said that he didn’t remember pitching, he was able to tell the medical staff that he had a bad headache, he threw up . Next thing Danny said he remembered was waking up 5 days later.

Even the doctor’s are so amazing on how well he is doing.

 

Don’t forget to vote for the all-star game.

 

Update on Danny

The very best news came yesterday

DANNY HAS GONE HOME!

He was discharged from the hospital and will continue to recover at home.

Danny won’t return to the office again this season.

No news what will happen with Danny next season but from what I read he really wants to pitch again.

Only time will tell.

You can still send get well notes, just drop them off at the field or address them to Danny in care of the White Sox

Overnight News

It’s a good news , Sad news post

Danny has been up taking short walks with his wife.

Ricky Renteria’s Mom, Angela passed away. He will be away Friday and Saturday to attend the funeral and will rejoin the team on Sunday.

 

Our sympathies go out to Ricky and his family during this time.

Update on Danny

My understanding is Danny had a procedure on Saturday but he is listed as critical but stable.

Danny was able to visit with his Dad. He is able to respond to questions and he is able to use his extremities.

Danny was also able to hold a base-ball like he was going to throw a pitch. (Danny has been moved to the 60 day disabled list)

 

If you would like to send a get well card you can drop it by or send it to care of the White Sox and they will make sure that Danny and his family receive them.

Continue to pray and positive thoughts, its a long road we still have to travel.

 

 

 

Positive thoughts for Danny Farquhar

For those who are wondering how Danny is the next days are critical. They took him to RUSH Memorial and the neurological team are looking after him.

For those of you who don’t know, Danny had finished pitching the 6th inning sat down in the dugout and collapsed.  The medical team was right there and did all they cold until the ambulance came.

The boys have written his number on their hats and hang his jersey in the dugout.

The family is asking for privacy at this time.

The club will issue statements as they feel they have information to share.

Just keep praying, Danny has a young family.

 

Suddenly Baseball doesn’t matter so much

The Ranch is open

Valentine’s Day had the best words a Girl could love:  “Pitcher and Catchers report to the ranch.”

The full squad reported on the 19th.

After trading him a season ago Miguel Gonzalez returns home to the pitching staff.

The boys open the spring league playing ranch mates the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday

 

 

Our Condolences to the Webb Family

On behalf of Kendria from Weavers Sports Desk and myself here at a Year with the White Sox we would like to offer our sympathies to the family of Daniel Webb who died in an accident last night.

Daniel is leaving behind a young family and I understand just became a father.

Kendria and I also offer our support to those who played with Daniel.

We will miss you Daniel

 

Snapping a losing Streak the Fun way.

Weavers Sports Desk/Fox Den Sports

Welcome back to the Desk, Kendria has joined me from Weaver’s Sports Center.Kendria has joined me at Guaranteed Rate Field.

I am well Kendria thanks for asking, its been awhile since we have gotten to catch up. Hope your well also?  You ask me about the loss of Jose Quintana and it’s effect on the rotation and I think it has, lost more stability in the rotation.  Now with the loss of David Robertson, Who do you think can fill the role of closer? To answer our closing problem, Nate Jones is out for the season after having elbow surgery to reposition a nerve in his elbow.

In response to your uniform question, the boys always wear the 1980’s throwbacks on Sunday during the season.

Today’s game has Carlos Rodon in the office facing off against Josh Tomlin for the Indians.

It would be a pitchers duel until the top…

Go North Young Sox

Quintana on the mound

To Toronto to be exact. I was not sure what to expect on this part of the trip. The boys have been playing better than a lot of people expected but when you wake up to the news its 7 to 0 in the second inning in the Sox favor, trust me, you pay attention.

Jose Quintana in the office today and he so needed a good outing and some quality run support.

Opening the 1st inning — Alen Hanson who comes to the Sox from Pittsburg opened the pond with a single and stole second, Melky walked. Jose Abreu with a triple got Melky and Alen home for a 2 to 0 sox lead. Todd Frazier with a sac fly to right brought Jose home for a 3 to 0 Sox lead. Matt Davidson with a double to left, who got home thanks to a Tim Anderson single for a 4 to 0 Sox lead.

Top of 2nd would see the score blow out when, with Hanson and Sanchez already on the pond, Melky with a double to bring the boys home for a 6 to 0 lead. Jose got in on the double fest with 1 of his own getting Melky home for a 7 to 0 lead.

Bottom of 2 would see the Blue Jays finally on the board with a solo home run, Sox 7 and Jays 1

Top of 3rd – Sox would add to the lead when, with Narvaez on with a double and to 3rd on a Sanchez ground out to shortstop. Narvaez would get home thanks to a Hanson single. 8 to 1 Sox lead.

Bottom of 3rd the Jays would add a solo home run for an 8 to 2 Sox lead.

Top of 5th with Narvaez and Hanson already on the pond Melky with a screaming shot to left for an 11 to 2 White Sox lead.

The Jays would add 2 more in the 9th but Jake Petricka would hold things and lock up the office for a monster 11 to 4 Sox win.

Jose Quintana with a much-needed and confidence boosting win.

 

** With the day’s events the Sox have gained a game only 5 games out of 1st. Mike Pelfrey is listed to have the keys to open the office for game 2 with the Blue Jays
