Royals 8, White Sox 7: LOL

The Sox somehow lose a game where David Robertson pitched with a six-run lead The last thing I saw of this game was Sal Perez limping off the field. The White Sox were leading 7-1, and Kansas City's catcher needed help to leave the field after hyperextending his knee in a collision with third baseman Cheslor Cuthbert. I wasn't putting an easy win in the bank. Rather, some friends...

According to Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Padres are in talks to trade pitcher James Shields to the Chicago White Sox, and the discussions have “significant momentum.” While a deal may not be imminent, the...

Column: White Sox must go all-in to win now

The hot start of the Chicago White Sox has cooled a bit lately, and that might be a good thing for them long-term. While the Sox started 23-10 on the season behind fantastic starting pitching in the first month or so, some of their production has fallen back down to earth—and with it, their record. Chicago is just 4-12 in its last 16 games, seeing the pitching outside of left...

White Sox need better fits for short bench

With a 13-man pitching staff, Robin Ventura's reserves should have skills that are more actual than theoretical It's not a good practice to spend a lot of time worrying about the last man on the bench, because they're largely interchangeable based on the needs of the day or week. But Jerry Sands has been on this team for all seven weeks of this season. Over that time, it hasn't...

Royals 7, White Sox 5: Below .500 But For the Twins

The only reason the White Sox are still in first place is because the Orioles beat Cleveland.  Friday night featured a parabolic emotional arc from misery to ecstasy and then humiliating impotent rage as the White Sox have now gone 4-12 in their last sixteen games after blowing a four-run lead they held going into the seventh. 1. The Royals had a rainout Friday to mull over the...

Despite recent struggles, White Sox remain confident

The Chicago White Sox are officially in a funk, having dropped 11 of 15 games heading into Friday night’s game at Kansas City. The team’s struggles have been in nearly every phase of the game — hitting, pitching and occasionally fielding. But the key for the White Sox isn’t what’s happened the previous two-plus weeks, but rather how they react to their first extended rough...

White Sox MLB draft 2016 possibilities: Braxton Garrett

The White Sox typically steer clear of high school pitchers with their first picks, but this draft has some worth considering The White Sox haven't drafted a high school pitcher in the first round of the MLB draft since Kris Honel in 2001.

The MLB Draft and the Chicago White Sox: A Recent History

The current regime of the Chicago White Sox, for all intents and purposes, began in 2000 when Kenny Williams took over as general manager. Williams replaced Ron Schueler and wound up as the third-longest tenured GM in team history, behind only Roland Hemond and Harry Grabiner. While Williams handed over the GM reins to Rick Hahn after the 2012 season, he still serves as the team’s...

Chicago White Sox: It’s time to cheer for Todd Frazier

It’s difficult not to cheer for Todd Frazier. The Chicago White Sox third basemen seems to be one of the giddiest and team-first players in Major League Baseball, being a key cog in helping turning around the chemistry issues that plagued the ballclub throughout spring training (yes, this is a sly reference to Drake LaRoche). He’s also one of the best players in the game now...

Did Alex Gordon’s wrist break the Royals’ chances?

Heading into the 2016 season, many were down on the Kansas City Royals’ chances. Despite winning the World Series and two straight AL pennants, improvements made by the Tigers, White Sox and Indians during the off-season matched with expected regression and the expected loss of free agents largely lead to the Royals being expected to finish in the middle of the pack in the AL Central...

Chicago White Sox: Todd Frazier proving to be the pick up of the year

The Chicago White Sox traded for third baseman Todd Frazier in the 2015 offseason in hopes to boost a lineup that mightily struggled during 2015 to scratch runs across the board. At third, Frazier plays a position that has been a disaster for the White Sox for nearly a decade, since a back injury to Joe Crede made him inconsistent in his play and led to his eventual retirement.
