I was talking with my father about Miguel Cabrera recently, and about how he’s undeniably one of the best hitters either of us have ever seen.

After a decade of waiting for a White Sox contender, Danks becomes its first casualty

South Side Morning 5: Looking for immediate fan returns from the White Sox hot start

1. Monday afternoon, the White Sox relayed a figure about their recent ticket sales in light of their hot streak that got picked up quickly. “#WhiteSox hot start apparently is catching on at the box office. Team has sold over 100,000 tickets in the last week.” -Dan Hayes That sure seems like a lot. They fell just under 1.76 million total paid attendance in 2015, so landing over...

Chicago’s beloved team from the South Side lost the World Series to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the transplanted team from Brooklyn, in its second year of basking in the southern California sunshine. And so, the...

Top Prospects that Never Were: Scott Ruffcorn, Chicago White Sox

Throwing strikes—it’s not for everybody. For Scott Ruffcorn, it was relatively impossible. At the major league level, anyway. Drafted 25th overall by the White Sox in 1991, it wasn’t as though Ruffcorn was starved for chances as he attempted to make a career in the big leagues. There was also a genuine level of hype surrounding him, something he’d never live up to. For three...
