We're close, very close. Before real, actual baseball, links: 

  • More fun with nicknames: The Hardball Times looks into some of the aliases associated with the late Chuck Tanner's White Sox. Plenty of Dick Allen goodness in there.
  • Also from THT, adjusting for less-than-well-calibrated PITCHf/x data. It's an interesting piece, and has more good links embedded for further research. Basically, as fantastic as PITCHf/x is, use the raw data cautiously and don't jump to any conclusions. 
  • Jake Peavy hatred runs rampant in San Diego.
  • The White Sox are low-balled again. Vegas odds see the Twins winning the division with 87 wins to the Sox paltry 84.5.
  • If you have to choose, take run prevention over run scoring.
  • Back when Michael Young was all but traded, a wee Rangers fan really took his future absence to heart. Hopefully that video is the saddest thing you see today. 
  • The Onion SportsDome puts Dayton Moore, Jason Kendall at the top of their list... of people to kill. Ouch.

    The first White Sox spring training game is tomorrow at 2:05 CST on MLB Network. Our heroes are "away," versus the Dodgers. Let's get it on.
