Games and Moments

August 19, 1970
vs. Boston Red Sox
at Fenway Park

The quaint internet phrase '***' was decades away from becoming a thing. However, I suspect that more than one fan of the 1970 Red Sox (and perhaps the players themselves) were shouting the full phrase that those initials stand for more than once while watching their team play the White Sox.

First, there was the 22-13 massacre at Fenway at the end of May. Boston rooters got a bit...

Games and Moments

July 19, 1970
vs. Baltimore Orioles
at White Sox Park

The losing continues unabated for our hapless 1970 heroes. The team bags last place on July 7, rises out for a day, then settles in for good on the 10th.

One positive is Carlos May, whose comeback continues to be a success, as he is batting .299. Meanwhile Bill Melton is shifted to the outfield for his own protection.

This day belonged to Luis Aparicio. The star...

Games and Moments

June 12, 1970
vs. Washington Senators
at White Sox Park

The 1970 White Sox had some good players and moments in the midst of all their badness.

Tommy John was one of those bright spots during this dark period. His ERA jumped due to the lowering of the mound, but he remained one of the rocks of a pitching staff that ranked at the bottom of the league in most catergories, including ERA.

John took the mound this night...

Games and Moments

June 10, 1970
vs. Boston Red Sox
at White Sox Park

The 1970 White Sox lost games in a variety of ways-they lost the close ones, they lost the blowouts. They lost in 9 innings and extras. They lost due to bad fielding, bad hitting and bad pitching. Their ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory was almost exquisite in its execution. If that ability is an art, the 1970 White Sox were true Michelangelos, with the entire field being their...

Games and Moments

vs. Baltimore Orioles
at Memorial Stadium

Just when you thought it was safe to believe in the White Sox again...

The 11-13 Pale Hose go to Baltimore trying to claw their way back to .500 respectability. It doesn't go well for them, and for one player in particular.

Bill Melton was struggling at this point in the season. Not with the bat, mind you. He had 3 HRs and a .326 average.

His defense...
