Jake Has Changed his Sox Color

The Battle of the Sox drawer just got more interesting

peavyWe all knew that this trade was possible but it has hit like a ton of bricks. Jake Peavy is changing his Sox color from WHITE to RED, In a three team, seven player trade, Jake is off to the Boston Red Sox. It is a little confusing so I will try my best here to wade through all the information.

Jake is off to the Boston Red Sox

Detroit sent  Jose Iglesias to the Red Sox, along with  pitcher Brayan Villarreal.

Avisail Garcia comes to the Chicago White Sox from Detroit with a pit stop in Boston.  Avisail will start with the Charlotte Knights but they do not expect him to stay there long. (@AvisailGarcia34)

Coming to Chicago from Boston is Minor league infielder Cleulius Rondon(age 19) and pitchers Francelis Montas( age 20) and Jeffery Wendelken.(age 20)

That is the simple sort of it all. You can find Avisail on twitter and  He is already getting tweets from Chicago fans welcoming him on board.

You can reach Jake at @JakePeavy_44

**My Thoughts

It has been along day and with being a huge Jake fan I am devastated to know that tomorrow he will not be there. I was so glad that I got  up early  to watch him pitch his last time in a Sox uniform.  It does not mean that my support for Jake will stop. I will still support him in what ever way I can.

We have some good young kids as I call them, needing our support. It is rebuilding time, and I think we pretty much know we won’t be playing post season ball, BUT it does not mean that we can’t enjoy the season. Look for the positive stuff and look forward to next year and this group coming together for a great 2014

I really have not slept the last couple of days with the trade window being open, I am really hoping I can sleep tonight and have a fresh prospect tomorrow.

Just a big THANK YOU so my #chisoxsorority sisters for their love and support tonight. Your support means the world to me, Especially tonight.

See you on the field

The final game in the series, Cleveland Indians 6 and the White Sox 1 . It was the first time in ages that we have been in a sweep. There have been little positives along the way and at this point I am staying focused on those. The worse part of the week was the departure of Jake Peavy to Boston before the window closed.

We have new additions to the Sox family and they have been welcomed and we are learning heaps about them, Andre Rienzo had an amazing first outing, and he will be amazing over time as the older and more experienced pitchers look after him.

Pack your bags kids, We are off to enemy terrority………………….Detroit

I have a feeling it could be a series full of surprises

See you on the field

In Cleveland

Jesse+Crain+Baltimore+Orioles+v+Chicago+White+p6Y1erkRCRMxMorning Kids.

First of all, I do apologize to you on where we are today. I looked wrong and thought we were at home when actually we are in Cleveland, Ohio. It is a four game series with the Indians. John Danks is on the mound today, Jake Peavy is scheduled for tomorrow provided he has not been traded. Sources are telling that it could be issues of paying out his current contract with the Sox to get his services.

At the time of opening this blog Jesse Crain has been traded to the Tampa Bay Rays for an undisclosed figure and a player to be named later. On behalf of my #chisoxsorority sisters, we wish him the very best, and safe travels to his new teams.

OK, grab a coffee and see you soon

Dugout Notes with the Royals

img***GAME ONE

White Sox – 1     Royals – 5

Calling the game today is the crew from – Hawk and Mike from Chicago

Uniform of the day is -(is a Pitchers Choice on the Uniform) Jose chose the Black Home Jersey‘s with white trim, Grey Pants

Pitching Staff – Jose Quintana,Donnie Veal, Matt Lindstrom

Playing Staff – De Aza, Ramirez, Rios, Dunn, Konerko, Gillaspie, Viciedo, Beckham, Phegley, Wells

Walks – 1

single – 7

***GAME TWO

White Sox – 0      Royals – 1

The uniform of the day is the Pitcher’s choice, Chris Sale chose the Black home Jersey with white trim and White Pinstripe Pants.

Pitching Staff – Chris Sale

Playing Staff – De Aza, Ramirez, Rios, Dunn, Konerko, Wells, Keppinger, Viciedo, Tekotte, Gillaspie, Beckham, Phegley

Chris pitched a complete game and there was NO OFFENCE to back him up. It is really sad that when the pitcher has an amazing outing that we can not do anything to help him.

***GAME THREE

White Sox – 2     Royals – 4 (in twelve inning)

The Uniform for the game was the 1983 Win Ugly

Pitching Staff – Hector Santiago, Nate Jones, Addison Reed, Donnie Veal, Ramon Troncoso

Playing Staff – De Aza, Ramirez, Rios, Dunn,Konerko, Keppinger, Viciedo, Tekotte, Beckham, Flowers, Gillaspie, Phegley

**Scoring Summary**

***First Inning 

*1 – 1

Detroit – Lough singled to center,Escobar scored and Butler to second

Sox – Konerko singled to left, Rios scored and Dunn to second

***Fourth Inning

*2 – 1 (Royals Lead)

Tejada Doubled to deep left Lough scored

***Sixth Inning

*2 – 2

Dunn home run to center – 438 feet

***Twelfth Inning

*4 – 2

Gordon Homered with Dyson on base

Final in the series was Royals 4 and White Sox 2. Josh Phegley committed his first professional error so I am hoping that he got that out of his system. Hector had a good outing but the offence was not able to lend any support.  There were some really bright spots along the way but I really think that the looming trade deadline is really bothering the boys. Paul Konerko was quoted as basically saying We KNOW we are SH*T right now. The looming trade deadline is not helping.

OK, enough of my venting and frustrations all. The Cleveland Indians come to The Cell for a four game series. John Danks and Jake Peavy are the opening pitchers for games one and two of the series.

Stay Positive

See you on the field

Closing out the Detroit Series

th_chicago_white_soxMorning Kids,

It is the final game in the series with the Detroit Tigers. It has been a disaster of a return series after the All-Star break. No clue as to what is the cause of what is going on with the breakdown of issues. Jake Peavy and Paul Konerko are back from the Disabled list and Jesse Crain could return any day.

July 31 is the close of the trade period and it can not come quick enough for a lot of us. The uncertainty of everything is really getting to a lot of us and the concern that our favorite player will be gone. I know that it is early and things could turn around. There have been a few positives in this series with Detroit, we have held them to single number wins and we have been able to not have a shut out. Some of the defense has been great and there have been sparks of great hitting. I just hope the boys can find their way back.

Anyway, Jake Peavy is on the mound today to close things out.

Grab a coffee and see you in the first inning.

***Ninth Inning

*7 – 4 (Sox Lead)

Detroit –(pop out to short)(struck out)(single)(walk)(struck out)

That is the game with the White Sox taking the final game of the series by a score of Sox 7 and Detroit 4. It was a really good outing for Jake Peavy. No matter what happens now I am so glad I got up to see him on what could be his last outing in a Sox uniform.

The girls and I were talking during the game and I think we have come to the senses to just enjoy the rest of the season. We are not as bad as we think, and it is a rebuilding time for us. As much as we want our favorites to stay, it may be that this is how it is. We know that next season could be our best and to be honest I can’t wait.

The Kansas City Royals are the last team to visit in this home stand before its time to pack and head out on the road, to Cleveland and Detroit to close out the month

Game Three with the Detroit Tigers

Dayan+Viciedo+Chicago+White+Sox+v+Cleveland+hTD0EmrFIvDlMorning Kids,

To be honest, this series has been one disaster after another. With all the errors, and then with Robin getting thrown out before we even got to bat yesterday I really don’t know what to think now. I love the boys more than anything, and I feel helpless just like my Sorority Sisters. We want to help, but we have no clue what we can do. We stay positive, looking for those little things to focus on.  Hector Santiago was amazing yesterday, Yea , I know your saying that he lost and all but he had great moments. This is where Jake Peavy would be amazing to help out. Talk with Hector and give some guidance, Jake has that understanding and his experience is invaluable. That is my lobby to Robin, Rich Hahn and the rest, Jake has to stay! You guys need him more than you can see now.

OK, enough of my venting.

John Danks has the keys to the mound so, grab a coffee and lets head to the first.

Detroit -(ground out to short)(struck out)(struck out)

Sox -Viciedo(HOME RUN), Phegley(flied out to left), De Aza(single to center,Safe at second on steal), Ramirez(pop out to third), Rios(flied out to right)

That is the game with the Tigers taking that one out by a score of 6 and the White Sox 2. I am still not a John Danks fan and I just wonder if he returned too soon. Some of what he is throwing just does not seem up to where it needs to be, maybe its the experience and conditioning and all. Just my two cents on that one

Its Jake Peavy on the mound to close the series tomorrow, then the Kansas City Royals come to The Cell for a Three game visit.

Lobbying to Keep the Boys Together

I usually do not do this but I am taking a risk here. I do my best to keep my personal thoughts and all out of this blog but this is a different case.

To Robin, Rick and the rest of the staff, Please take time and listen to the fans on this. The boys need to stay together, and help the young ones coming thought. I know that there are heaps of frustrations and all in this but, with Alex, Paul, Jeff and Jake — they are have the experience to help with the ones like Casper, Brent, Jordan Danks, who are playing in Charlotte and come up as needed. They are have a good eye and can help those young ones.

Jake Peavy would be a big help with those pitching like Hector Santiago and Jose Quintana. He understands the mechanics and the thought process to help this guys and others be a better pitcher. I am a massive Jake Peavy fan and it will be heart breaking to lose him. Yes I know that his injuries may be ticks against him but his knowledge and guidance is so much more.

I know there have been a heap of errors and thisChicago-White-Sox is an issue that needs fixed. I have no clue what it is to fix that problem but good basic ball playing. keep it simple and do not try anything flash. Just stop trying to show off and get the out, even if it looks like a double play and you’re not sure, get the secure out. Don’t make mistakes and cause runs. We had that problem in the last few days where walks and errors gave away runs and we just could not get things back on track.

I know there is more I could say, compare to the 2005 World Series team but the only one left from that team is Paul Konerko. It’s a rebuilding time and I get that. Fans are frustrated but can you imagine what they boys are feeling. The fans have been ruthless at the best of times and it is really hard to be on web sites when things are negative.

I love my Sorority Sisters, their passion and love for the game and the boys is truly amazing and just wonderful. It is super to know that they understand, just like I do about keeping the boys together. Sure, we get down about losses and all but we still love the boys and we REFUSE to give up!

I just do not know if anyone in the office at the White Sox will read this but I have to try. We need the experience the boys have, we need the security of NOT trading the boys so, the knowledge can be passed on and we can win that next series.

Thank you for listening, for taking the time to read this.

See you on the field

It was a day filled with errors and Robin getting tossed out in the first inning , which to be honest I still don’t get. John Danks will be in the office on Thursday and Jake Peavy to close the series.
