The steroids discussion lasts about 25 minutes, but I'd recommend listening to the whole thing if you've got an hour to spare (even if only in the background). Warning, WU -- you will dislike this man. Not only is he a steroid skeptic, he's also a marathon-running-and-jogging skeptic.

OT: ESPN Wins Premier League Rights


Pretty big news... Setanta is in financial trouble (I'm fairly certain they completely missed making their last payment to the Premier League altogether) and their rights to air games were revoked. Kudos to ESPN for jumping on this.


Read a book, read a book, read a mother%*#&^$% book (or a blog, or some type of publication)

This is probably somewhat overdue, seeing how much ass the music thread kicks (it really does -- if nothing else it gives me some stuff to dabble with in my free time).  I know I'm always looking...

A Beautiful Day for a Baseball Game...


maybe a little too beautiful for Scott Podsednik.  Podsednik provided another adventurous moment in the outfield when he dropped a line-drive that would've ended the eighth inning.  Toronto went on...


Hurray Josh!

I know it's been a while since a White Sox position prospect has come up to Chicago and actually looked competent, but damn -- we're actually seeing that with Josh Fields.  I guess I shouldn't...

It's For the Best


Sleep and work got the best of me this weekend, allowing me to catch all of two innings of White Sox baseball.  I'm pretty sure that's a good thing, but... When I check out the box scores on my...


History Lesson: Albert Belle

I have to be totally honest here and say that my memories of anything about the White Sox before the turn of the millenium is vague, at best.  I have vague recollections of being an extremely shy...


Sox Lose, Sun Shines, Grass Green

It was another bad weekend of White Sox baseball, brightened only by another great Mark Buehrle start on what is increasingly looking like Buehrle's farewell tour.  The Sox hit the ball a bit...

Sox offense -- slumping, or just mediocre?

I know the consensus among most people -- myself included -- is that the Sox offense was going to be fine this year and that the pitching was the area to worry about.  The Thome injury sure...

The Morning After Notes...


Jose Contreras held the Angels to three runs last night, but his stuff still wasn't very good.  The fastball isn't where it was and the overhand forkball seemed non-existant.  I hope this isn't...
