Preview: Twins vs. White Sox

Considering how they've handled the Chicago White Sox in recent home matchups, the Minnesota Twins could keep making strides in the AL wild-card race this week. Chris Sale would appear to be an imposing obstacle for the Twins on Tuesday night, but they've proved one of his most difficult opponents this season. Minnesota (67-63) has won six of its seven home games against its AL Central...

White Sox wear 1976 uniforms for Throwback Thursday

The Chicago White Sox took Throwback Thursday to a whole new level. They wore their 1976 uniforms in a 4-2 home victory over the Seattle Mariners. It was, well, a blue-collar victory. Their get-up featured navy blue pants, untucked jerseys with no buttons and a navy-blue dress-shirt type collar. Fortunately, they were spared the shorts that they sometimes wore during the 1976 season...

The White Sox should absolutely bring back these throwback uniforms

When it comes to uniforms, Major League Baseball is in a major rut (pun intended). The NFL and NBA and even college football often generate buzz with their uniform changes, but when it happens in baseball, it's just a quick blip on the radar. That would certainly change if the White Sox would go back to their awesome 1976 softball-like uniforms that they wore on Thursday night. From...

Chicago White Sox: doing nothing gets you nothing

Success is never guaranteed in life, let alone baseball. Great baseball minds are just as susceptible to their team going through a poor season as mediocre teams. No one is immune to struggling players, injuries, or having the misfortune of playing in a very competitive division. We as writers are also susceptible to harsh and sometimes unfair criticism of team management. I know...

‘Straight Outta Compton,’ has sports-related blooper in opening scene 

The props department of this weekend's No. 1 movie "Straight Outta Compton" isn't getting any props from White Sox fans after a big sports blooper made it look more like "Back To The Future." While the N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton" raked in over $60 million, the opening scene could have used a little more research, according to the Chicago Sun Times blog. In the...

‘Straight Outta Compton’ has amusing White Sox cap mishap

“Straight Outta Compton” may have dominated the box office over the past weekend, making over $60 million in a No. 1 weekend debut, but a rather inconsequential but amusing wardrobe error in a scene at the beginning of the film has sports fans — make that persnickety sports fans — calling foul. In the opening scene, Eazy-E, portrayed by Jason Mitchell, is wearing a black...

Why Chris Sale may be the most valuable player in baseball

Yesterday, White Sox left-hander Chris Sale put together one of the most artful pitching performances of the season. Facing the Crosstown rival Chicago Cubs, who had won 15 of its previous 16 games, Sale fanned 15 Cubs hitters in only 7 innings of shutout work, whilst giving up a single hit and walk. If it wasn’t for a 116-pitch count through those seven innings, Sale would have...

Best White Sox Jerseys – Bo Knows Baseball

My boy Matt Smith is an Angels fans, and there’s rarely reasons to go see the White Sox play, so I took him up on his offer of buying $10 seats to watch his struggling Angels try to avoid being swept in the middle of a playoff chase by a below .500 squad starting $15 million dollar man John Danks and his 4.58 ERA. Opposing Danks was Andrew Heaney, a young pitcher who’s on...

Buy/Sell, Week 18: Assessing A-Ram

Alexei Ramirez- Buy This buy speaks in one part to the dumpster fire that is the shortstop position. However, it also speaks to the production we have seen from Ramirez of late. It resembles the performance we have to come to expect from Ramirez, with value in either home runs or stolen bases, if not both. Though the underlying season stat line is still a disappointment, it has looked...

A first look at White Sox outfielder Trayce Thompson

With the end of the minor league drawing near, teams are starting to call up some of their more promising Triple-A players to the big leagues.

Also called up, but somewhat lost in the shuffle, was 24-year-old White Sox outfielder Trayce Thompson...

Phillies showing signs of future success

While the Philadelphia Phillies are still in the drivers seat for the worst record in baseball this season, they have been playing as well as anyone since the All-Star Break. Considering they were on pace to lose 110 games this season at the Break and they’re now in a better position to avoid 100 losses, it’s pretty remarkable how quickly things changed. Indeed, they...

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+. The takeaway point from that first sentence is that Brayan Pena has been among the worst hitters in the league over the last decade, which is probably something you knew about him […]
