Though the Chicago White Sox were expected to potentially contend this season, they are going to likely finish under .500 for the fourth straight season, which normally would mean bad news for manager Robin Ventura.

Writing topics don’t come easily these days, so it would behoove me to not ignore the obvious one offered by the Daily Herald’s Scot Gregor Tuesday night. Sale is done after allowing 3 runs in 7 innings. Could be last start of season, possibly last start ever for #WhiteSox — Scot Gregor (@scotgregor) September 28, 2016 For Chris Sale‘s departure, the angst is all theoretical...

Chicago White Sox first basemen Jose Abreu is showing he’s still one of the best. After a slow start to the 2016 season many Sox fans worried that maybe Jose Abreu’s skills were starting to diminish.
