Holiday News

1340671450Sorry its been awhile since I have checked in with you. Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox on their World Series win. It was a great series and Even though Jake Peavy did pitch and had a rough outing I was still really happy to get to watch him play.

This is a bit of news to catch you up on:

Gordon Beckham and Matt Lindstrom bot got married in the last few weeks and we send our best wishes to them.

Dylan Axelrod‘s contract was not renewed by the White Sox and we wish him the best in the future.

I have not seen an update on how Gavin Floyd is going but I did see that someone is keeping an eye on him, I want to say its Baltimore but don’t quote me on that one.

Tyler Flowers was given a 1 year contract, I just don’t know about that because he is coming off-season ending surgery. Jeff Keppinger also had surgery at the end of last season but I have not seen an update on him.

Here is the link to the active rooster at the time I wrote this: http://whitesox.mlb.com/team/roster_active.jsp?c_id=cws

I am not sure when the final cut has to be made. I figure that a few of the guys will be sent down to Charlotte at some point.

A.J Pierzynski has left Texas heading to the Boston Red Sox after taking a one year deal, He will be joining Jake and Matt Thornton, Jarred Saltalamacchia and the Miami Marlins have reached a three-year deal.

Well, the news we have been waiting for has finally come and its good, Paul Konerko has said YES to coming back for the 2014 season. It will be great to see him play and go out on his terms.

Winter meetings will be taking place soon and if I hear any news I will stop in to pass it along.

**Personal

I just wanted to take a chance to thank you all for your support over the year. It was a year of more ups than downs but I have mange to find my way with your support.

Have a great holiday season and will see you all soon

Last One Out, Turn Off the Lights and Lock the Door.

White soxEvening Kids,

I am sorry that I was not with you as the season finished, Life commitments took me away, but I was able to follow the results and they were disappointing, We all hoped for a better season but there were some good sparks and some surprises along the way.

We finished with 63 wins and 99 loses, 30 games behind, with a record on the road of 26 wins/55 loses and at home we were 37 wins/44 loses.

We said good-bye to Gavin Floyd early in the season as an injury and Tommy John would be the end of his season. Tyler Flowers and Jeff Keppinger were also shut down and sent off for season ending surgery, both had been carrying injuries from spring training. An early injury of a broken wrist to Gordon Beckham saw him on the disabled list for 6 weeks as he battled to return. He was held back from returning too quick and possible going back down.

We saw the arrival of many guys from Charlotte, including John Danks, Josh Phegley, Brent Moral, Blake Tekotte, along with others. Some stayed for the season and others came in as needed.

Through trade and wavers we said good-bye to fan favorites : Jesse Crain to Tampa Bay, Matt Thornton and Jake Peavy to Boston, Alex Rios to the Texas Rangers, Casper Wells headed off to Philadelphia.  We miss you guys heaps and hope you have settled into your new homes. We will continue to keep an eye on you and see how you’re doing.

Captain Konerko, Paulie battled back issues during the season, He and Jake went to Birmingham for re-hab assignments before returning to the main stage. Paul has yet to decide if 2014 will be his last season. Many of the Sorority Sisters, attended the final game just in case it was the last for him. They wore the White Home Pinstripe just in case Paul decided to hang up the cleats for the final time. Sunday’s was the win ugly uniforms of 1983.

A couple of the trades brought us a unique problem, the SAME last name, Avisail and Leury made me pay more attention to the line ups and remember which one was playing. A couple of games Jordan Danks joined the boys in the outfield creating what I called the Law Firm of Garcia, Garcia and Danks.

6’3″ tall Andre Rienzo has stolen all our hearts and gained many new fans. Starting out unsure and confidence not great has grown into a smart, tough starting pitcher who will only get better in time, along with Jose Quintana and Hector Santiago have grown leaps and bounds and soared in confidence. I can’t wait for next season when we finally get to see the boys again and see how they have developed. With Chris sale heading the pitching and Addison Reed, Nate Jones and Matt Lindstrom teaming up to spearhead the bullpen, its going to be a really good spring 2014.

**Personal Notes**

Thanks to everyone at the spring training home Camelback Ranch for your love and support during spring training. You guys are just amazing and make spring time fun.

To the girls of the ChiSoxSorority – You ladies are truly amazing and I love each and every one of you. We have united over our love for “Our Boys of Summer”. We have seen the good and the bad of season but stuck it out, learning from each other and growing together. Sara and Jan have done an amazing job of overseeing everything and keep us a safe place to hang out. We have been there to support each other through personal challenges and I can only see us getting stronger. I have the faith that there is something special out there for us and only time will show us what that is. I know whatever challenge we are handed we will succeed.

To my hubby Pj, thank you for putting up with me sleeping all hours of the day and night. Times were hard there and I was really cranky with the lack of sleep but we made it through. Thanks to my editor Dan for all those edits on the fly at all hours so I can get the news out there.

My final THANK YOU is to YOU the readers and fans of the White Sox and baseball in general. You have given me so much support and kept me inspired to keep going when the season got really tough. Through all the ups and down you have still been there and that means more than you know.

I will still share with you news from the Sox as it comes through, Winter meetings and any news of player movement.

From here I will be my best to keep you updated on the playoffs and world series as best my access will allow me to do so.

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR A WONDERFUL SEASON AND SEE YOU IN 2014

See you at The Cell

Dedicating Post 150, to Sisters and Favorite Players.

Cricket and Opera HouseIt has been an interesting journey during this baseball season. When I started this it was for fun and to get back into baseball and see what was going on. Since then, things have taken many turns that I never expected and I have made some wonderful new friends and Sorority Sisters.

My Sorority Sisters are the most wonderful, loving, funny, supportive Sisters that any girl could ask for, I love sharing the games with the girls and just having general chat about life and our love of the game, the players we love, those we miss. I had a melt down as few weeks ago and they were so supportive and wonderful. To my Sisters, I give you my love and support, we have shared the massive great times and helped each other through those days of trades and favorite players leaving. Jake Peavy is a case in point, I was devastated when he was traded to Boston and the girl knew I would be. They were there to support me and remind me that I can always follow him no matter. That is how our “She Also Loves the Former White Sox Players” came to be. There are rumors of Paul Konerko retiring along with Adam Dunn, I know some of the girls are devastated by the news. I will be there for them, to love and support them as we wait for news. It may not come til after our season ends but I will be there.

I miss Jake Peavy in the number 44. He was wonderful to watch, was really connected to his catchers. You could see then he would be really annoyed with himself, he would yell at himself when he was in the office (on the mound). Jake was a mentor to Chris Sale and some of the other pitchers and I wish he would still be there. I will continue to follow Jake until he retires, no matter what color his Sox are. Miss you heaps Jake.

I have already decided to return next year, that was an easy choice as my love of baseball and especially my love of the Boys of Summer. It has been an amazing year, the highs of seeing Jake, Hector and Jose pitch and do well, the lows of injuries and wavers. Gavin Floyd departing and needing Tommy John surgery. The explosion of Josh Phegley, an Indiana boy making in the big league.

I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU, to Dan who is my editor, Pj my husband, for his love and support, putting up with me getting up at all hours of the night to work, to my Chicago White Sox Sorority, I LOVE YOU…I cant thank you for all your support and what wonderful friendship we have built. I know that I have many wonderful sisters for life.

Finally, to YOU my readers, I can not say THANK YOU enough for taking the time to stop by and share a few minutes of your day with me. Your support is what keeps me going, Its been full of highs and lows but we have made it through.

Take care and again

THANK YOU

See you on the field

It is a well deserved day off tomorrow before we pack our travel bags for a 10 game road trip. First stop is in Boston where the: “Battle of the Sox Drawer” will take place as we face the Red Sox for a 3 game series and my fear has come true as during that series we have to face Jake Peavy.

After Jake, Matt and the boys in Boston, its off to a visit with the New York Yankees for 3 game series, from there on the 5th of September we open a four game series with the Orioles before heading back to The Cell.

Enjoy the day off, and will see you  on the field in  Boston

Jake Peavy’s First Outings as a Red Sox

1001219_411628322288249_1006281135_n  Now that Jake is gone I am still following each outing and all. His first with the Boston Red Sox was a typical Jake outing.

Boston played against the Arizona Diamondbacks and The Red Sox won by a score of 5 – 2. Jake’s Stats were as follows: He faced 26 batters throwing 99 pitches with 65 of those strikes

Innings Pitched – 7.0

Hits – 4

Runs – 2

Earned Runs – 2

Base on Balls – 2

Strike outs – 7

Home run – 1

ERA – 4.14

Jake’s second outing was this past Friday against the Kansas City Royals with the final outcome of a 9 to 6 loss. This was not a good outing for him

Jake faced 25 batters throwing 105 pitches with 66 strikes.

Innings Pitched – 5.0

Hits 10

Runs – 6

Earned runs – 6

Base on Balls – 1

Strike outs – 0

Home runs – 2

That leaves Jake with a current ERA of 4.50

On the 5 day rest, that should have him pitching roughly on Wednesday the 14th of August against the Toronto Blue Jays,

See you on the field

It was an OK game today, Positives are that we got out of that game with NO ERRORS and Hector had an amazing outing. It was good , strong solid pitching. I think what hurt us was hitting in to the double play, we just could not move the ball out of the infield with ducks on the pond.

John Danks is listed for tomorrows game leading the charge.

See you on the field

Dear Jake, Matt and Jesse

??????????????????For what ever reasons, you all have left us for other teams, we love you and miss you like mad and will continue to follow your careers as the seasons pass. Keep safe on your travels and hope your remain injury free until you decide that it is time to hang up the cleats.

We know that you have seen the frustrations from we the fans, and we can not begin to understand how you are dealing it. As Paul Konerko basically said “We know we are playing like****” I feel like we need to take that step back and the pressure off of all of you. We are rebuilding and it will take time to find that right mix of players to fit together, to support and nurture the young ones. Those up and coming players who are new to the family. Those who have come along and need help getting settled in to life in the majors.

A lot of fans of late keep speaking up and saying how they are “DIE HARD” fans. In they next breath they are saying how everyone is crap and that Robin needs fired, that they are turning OFF the game, or refusing to watch, I have even seen some comments that I REFUSE to repeat. I ask you HOW can you be a die-hard fan when your turning off games, being as negative as possible.

From the 2005 World Series team the only one that is left is Paul Konerko. Hawk told how he has taken Gordon Beckham under his wing, been there to help him adjust and when times for Gordon got tough it was PAUL who helped him get through. I hope that some of the more settled boy will do the same with the new kids coming in. Just one of the boys stepping up and helping one of the new family members could make all the difference in the world to that person.

My Sorority Sisters understand that it is a lean time now. It takes time to rebuild, to work though injuries and the frustrations of losing when it is so close and feeling helpless when there are silly errors. We know that is season is most likely over, that we will not see post season play. We have decided to keep on turning on the game, keep on supporting the boys no matter what. Sure we get frustrated and all BUT, in no way shape or form do we allow the frustrations to get the better of us or to give up. At the end of the game we look for those positives and look forward tomorrow when it is another day. To put it into simple words, OUR BOYS have our unconditional love and support.

One of my Sorority Sisters, posted this on Facebook and I had to share it, We all needed to laugh and boy did this help…….

Five Chicago sports fans were climbing a mountain one day. Each was a fan of a different Chicago sports team and each proclaimed to be the most loyal to their team. As they climbed higher, they argued as to which one of them was the most loyal of all. They continued fighting until they reached the top. The Blackhawk’s fan hurled himself off the mountain, shouting, “this is for the Hawks” as he fell to his doom. Not wanting to be outdone the Bulls fan threw himself off the edge shouting “this is for the greatest team of the 90’s” then the Bears fan jumped and said ” this is for DA COACH” the two remaining fans looked at each other in stunned silence. After a minute the Sox fan bellowed… “THIS IS FOR THE SOUTH SIDE!” AND THEN HE PUSHED THE CUBS FAN OFF THE MOUNTAIN!!!!

You may be gone but your not certainly forgotten, we know that we will meet up with you during the season and will get to see how well you are doing. We will continue to follow you no matter where you go, send you tweets of love and support.

After the deal with Jake went through and it was all over, in bed that night I had a massive cry. How in the world were we going to do this with out him, We need his experience and guidance for the younger ones. I though that if I could talk to the boys right that minute, I wondered what they might tell me, tell my Sisters………They would thank us for our support, how much it has meant to them, they are no longer there but the younger ones needed us, those who are regulars that get called up , like Conor Gillaspie  and Jordan Danks but the new ones would need us also like Andre Rienzo and Avisail Garcia.

So, that is what we are doing, supporting the ones that are there, who need us. Giving them our support as times are tough, looking for the positive things and looking forward to great things that are coming. Madly tweeting and anything else we can do to get them through the rest of the season.

Take care of yourselves, you will never be forgotten.

See you on the field

The ladies of the White Sox Sorority

Indians – HOME RUN

It is a heartbreaking loss for our boys tonight with the final score White Sox 5 and the Cleveland Indians 6. Addison Reed saw some action tonight but I think with the time off, he was a little rusty. There were issues on both sides tonight that im my opinion that were contributing factors to the loss.

Tomorrow is a travel day so the start time is 1:05 pm Cleveland time, which is a 1:35 am Australia start.  Chris Sale is on the mound to close the series before we pack up and head to Detroit

See you on the field
