The White Sox Are Pushing For October

The White Sox current roster, much of which was assembled over this past offseason, has largely underperformed as a group in 2015. Additions Melky Cabrera and Adam LaRoche have failed to hit as expected. Avisail Garcia has not taken the leap forward many expected. Jeff Samardzija was pitching to the tune of a 4.56 ERA at the end of June, and Jose Abreu has regressed as has Adam...

White Sox offense has been impressively poor

Brayan Pena is a 33-year-old backup catcher who has amassed 1820 PA across 11 seasons, producing a .259/.299/.352 line and a 75 wRC+.
