Ivan Nova open to re-signing with White Sox

Ivan Nova’s tenure with the White Sox began in shaky fashion, as he allowed five or more runs in four of his first six starts to the season. However, the former Yankees and Pirates righty has settled into a run of success and tells Doug Padilla of the Chicago Sun-Times that if the opportunity to return to the White Sox presents itself, he would take it. There’s no guarantee that the Sox would make Nova an offer to return, but the 32-year-old’s performance with the club since a...

Ugly loss in Anaheim

White Sox fall, 9-2, in a game where very little went right

Well, no way around this one, this 9-2 Malachi Crunch of a Chicago White Sox loss to the Angels was ugly.

It can be spun a spot sunny by pointing out that Eloy Jiménez had seven total bases on a homer and a triple — but you’d also have to point out he jogged out of...

Tale of the Tape: Angels 9, White Sox 2

Dylan Cease was just okay, but Griffin Canning was much better, stifling the White Sox offense over seven innings for the 9-1 victory. The White Sox head to Minnesota after dropping three of four in Anaheim. W: Griffin Canning (5-6) L: Dylan Cease (2-6) The Good Tim Anderson: 2-for-4, 2B Eloy Jimenez: 2-for-4, 3B, HR, 2 RBI The Bad The Rest of the Lineup: 3 H, 1 BB, 10 K Pitching (Cease/Detwiler): 8 IP, 15 H, 9 ER, 2 BB, 8 K, 4 HR Moment of the Game Well, I couldn’t pick one from this...

Something’s missing: Yeah, Mike Trout is out of the lineup today. | Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The Angels are flying Trout-free today, which seems a ripe opportunity for Dylan Cease and the South Siders to split a series

OK folks, I’m doing double writing duty today, here and at South Side Hit Pen. You’d think I’d figure out how to manipulate the schedule well enough to do less writing with our huge writing crew over there, but, go figure.

Anyway, this was a pretty funny response...

Tale of the Tape: Angels 6, White Sox 5

Hector Santiago and Jimmy Cordero started this game out strong, but Evan Marshall imploded in the 7th, and the White Sox dropped one that was firmly in their control. With the loss, the White Sox fell to 55-67 on the season. W: Taylor Cole (3-4) | L: Evan Marshall (3-2) | S: Hansel Robles (18) The Good Eloy Jimenez: 2-for-4, HR, 2 RBI James McCann: 1-for-4, 2B, 2 RBI The Bad Welington Castillo: 0-for-3, 2 K Adam Engel: 0-for-2, BB Evan Marshall: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 1 K Moment of the...

Offense impresses early, bullpen falters late

Turnabout is fair play, and the same late flurry of runs that iced a 7-2 Chicago victory on Friday night shut the door on them Saturday, as the Angels’ four-spot in the seventh sunk the Sox, 6-5.

Guest announcer has funny name suggestion for Angels’ rock formation

The Chicago White Sox are using guest announcers for their series in Anaheim while usual analyst Steve Stone takes a breather. So far, these guest announcers have been a hit. On Friday night, Bill Walton joined play-by-play announcer Jason Benetti as the guest, and the results were fantastic. Saturday’s guest announcer was Michael Schur, who is best known for being a writer and producer of “The Office” and co-creator of “Parks & Recreation,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “The Good...

Can Hector Santiago baffle right-handed mashers like Mike Trout and Albert Pujols? It would be ken tremendous if he could

Today’s color commentator literally has some big shoes to fill. But Ken Tremendous of Fremulon Insurance can do it.

As a fan, Thank You Bill Walton

Looking at the impact Bill Walton’s White Sox TV appearance had, and asking if this is something that should happen again.

James McCann is on another level

Bill Walton tripped his way into the White Sox broadcast booth — and brought home a decisive, 7-2 win

Well, though I fear my SSS brethren will mostly disagree, Bill Walton’s trip into the broadcast booth on Friday night was a delight.

And one thing you cannot dispute, it was a successful trip, as the Chicago White Sox clobbered the Angels, 7-2.

The Chicago White Sox took a chance when they selected Alec Hansen and it has been a roller coaster ever since they made that decision.

Angels outlast White Sox, 8-7

Not just one but two home runs for José Abreu tonight. | Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

José Abreu clobbered two to the rocks, but a late rally fell short

The Chicago White Sox were never too much into this game, at least until the very end, ultimately seeing their ninth-inning rally fall one tick shy in an 8-7 defeat.

Three guesses as to why:
