WHITE SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

The other time the White Sox hit seven homers

It was in 1955, and the Sox managed to win that one. Quite handily. The White Sox tied a franchise record on Saturday by hitting seven home runs. The other time the Sox hit that mark, though, it sounded like a lot more fun. Back on April 23, 1955, the White Sox homered seven times en route to a 29-6 victory over the Kansas City Athletics at Municipal Stadium. It's kind of a weird...

Blue Jays 10, White Sox 8: How to hit seven homers and lose

Lifehack: Make all of them solo shots and get rough pitching The White Sox made history today. Too much history. Yes, they tied a single-game franchise high with seven homers, which had only been accomplished before in 1955. Unfortunately, they were all solo shots, Miguel Gonzalez put the Sox in a 5-0 hole, and the fringy guys in the bullpen couldn’t spare the better relievers...

Blue Jays overcome 7 solo homers, hold off White Sox 10-8

CHICAGO (AP) The White Sox tied a team record with seven home runs, but it wasn't enough as Edwin Encarnacion drove in four runs, Devon Travis homered and the Toronto Blue Jays held on to beat Chicago 10-8 Saturday. All seven homers were solo shots. Brett Lawrie became the first White Sox player since Ron Santo in 1974 to hit inside-the-park and over-the-wall homers in the same...

Zack Burdi shows areas for improvement in High-A debut

Former Louisville closer has arm for White Sox bullpen, but command will take some time The White Sox will need help for their bullpen this year, and they drafted Louisville closer Zack Burdi with that in mind. Selected 26th overall with a supplemental pick in the first round, the Downers Grove native arrived in the system with triple-digit heat and a low-90s slider. He also possesses...

Here Come the Blue Jays

Back home for a 3 game series with Toronto before a day off on Monday. Carlos Rodon is in the office today. Jose Abreu is getting a much-needed day off to rest. Carlos had a couple of really crappy starts forcing Robin to the bullpen early, his very last outing was a solid start and I have my fingers crossed that can happen today. Rodon gets the 1st batter of the night to strike...

Jose Abreu out of White Sox lineup with leg pain

The White Sox have steadily plummeted from their first-place perch in the American League Central en route to their current fourth-place standing. And tonight, the Chicago lineup won’t house Jose Abreu, who is dealing with leg soreness. Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com categorizes it as “leg fatigue,” but no matter. Abreu is expected to return to the Chicago lineup this weekend...

The White Sox bullpen is overmatched

As is often the case in free agency, the White Sox look like they are paying for David Robertson‘s prime in New York, and getting his last, declining years of useful production in return. The stuff is still closer-worthy and uniquely untouchable despite his love for living up in the zone with low-90s heat, but it’s no longer ‘best in the league,’ level which doesn’t pair...

The White Sox’ Hidden Catastrophe

I was reading through Jon Heyman’s latest Inside Baseball, and then I got to the White Sox section. Within, Heyman said something about Chris Sale, and though it wasn’t specifically about everything that’s going to follow in here, it at least works well enough for me to embed: Chris Sale’s pitches come from such an unusual angle, it seems to fool umpires. It looked like he...

Todd Frazier’s Batted Ball Problem

Todd Frazier hasn’t been exactly what the White Sox hoped when they traded a slew of prospects for him in the offseason. I mean, yeah, he’s got a share of the MLB home run lead with 21, but everything else has been out of whack. Despite those 21 home runs, Frazier’s actually barely been a league-average hitter, a .201 batting average being the key contributor to a pedestrian...

Did Zach Putnam “Deserve to Lose” with His Splitter?

Zach Putnam threw 20 pitches on Monday night, and 15 of them were splitters. Many were balls. The White Sox reliever walked all three batters he faced in the ninth inning of a tie game at Fenway Park. Dennis Eckersley, doing color on the Red Sox TV broadcast wasn’t impressed. In his opinion, Putnam “deserves to lose” because he was throwing so many splitters. Results aside...

It’s game 2 of the Sox Drawer Battle between Boston and the Chicago. Chris Sale in the office today. The boys wore the dirty gray pants and black jerseys. Tim Anderson on the 1st pitch of the game with his very first home run. White Sox open the scoring 1 to 0. Adam Eaton with a double on the 2nd pitch of the game. Eaton home on a Melky sac fly for a 2 to 0 White Sox lead. What...

Chicago White Sox: It’s time to start worrying…but for a different reason

It’s time to start worrying about the Chicago White Sox…but for a different reason. I’m not usually not the type to start panicking in mid-June, and I’m not. I’m not panicking about the team itself because again it’s mid-June and in the second wild card era, any team can get hot and squeak into the playoffs. The thing about the Chicago White Sox that is making me start...

Chicago White Sox: trouble with Robin Ventura

Chicago White Sox: What to do with James Shields?

Although, after what started off as a disappointing series in Texas, then a disappointing roadtrip, then a disappointing month, and now a disappointing season, every move the Sox make is a response by the...
