Spring Training Position Battle Updates

The White Sox are about two weeks into Spring Training games and while they still have another two-plus weeks of games left before heading north, this seems like a good time to check in with the position battles. While I don’t put a ton of stock into spring numbers, for players competing for specific spots […]

Optimism helping spur ticket prices for White Sox home opener

While the Chicago White Sox finished an unpleasant 73-89 a season ago and stretched their playoff drought to six years, there was definitely some significant progress made, following up a much more disastrous year in 2013 when the club was 63-99 and in last place of their division. Improving ten games is definitely noteworthy, but […]


Around The Diamond: Catching Conundrum

Our positional previews continue with a look behind the dish. While there is a heck of a lot to be excited about when it comes to the 2015 Chicago White Sox, the catcher position leaves much to be desired. In most people’s minds, there are four, maybe five names to watch for when it comes […]


Around The Diamond: 2015 Second Base Race

We have already previewed what to expect with regards to the hot corner, and next will cover who will be starting at second base in the 2015, after the late August departure of Gordon Beckham to the LA Angels. As excited as some Sox fans were to see Gordo go, the eigth overall pick in the […]


White Sox Sign Super-Utility Man Emilio Bonifacio

Along with bringing in big names like Jeff Samardzija, Adam LaRoche, Melky Cabrera, and David Robertson, the General Manager of a contending team also has to fill the smaller ‘depth’ and ‘glue’ roles. That’s exactly what White Sox GM Rick Hahn did Monday morning by signing 29-year-old super-utility man Emilio Bonifacio to a one-year, 2016 […]


Win-Now Mentality Means Time for Ventura to Produce

If the last few weeks have indicated anything, it’s that Jerry Reinsdorf and the White Sox are tired of waiting. After some seasons of taking a wait-and-see approach, Reinsdorf opened his checkbook, and Rick Hahn delivered with a closer, a top-end right-handed starter, a left fielder and second hitter, a left-handed bat to protect Jose […]

How Much Did the White Sox Improve?

The White Sox have made major waves this off-season with a flurry of new acquisitions via both free agency and trades. Perhaps no team in baseball has improved themselves more on paper than the Chicago White Sox. The question is just how much did they improve themselves? Let’s take a look at the Sox newcomers […]


White Sox Swap Andre Rienzo For Lefty Reliever

General Manager Rick Hahn and the Chicago White Sox have stayed busy as the hot stove shows no signs of cooling down. Thursday afternoon, the team dealt pitcher Andre Rienzo to the Miami Marlins for 27 year-old lefty reliever Dan Jennings. The Iowa native was a 9th round pick of the Marlins back in 2008, […]


White Sox Land Samardzija from A’s

The White Sox made another off-season splash by acquiring pitcher Jeff Samardzija from the Oakland A’s along with minor-league pitcher Michael Ynoa for infielder Marcus Semien, pitcher Chris Bassitt, catcher Josh Phegley and minor-league infielder Rangel Ravelo. By adding Samardzija to the likes of Chris Sale and Jose Quintana, the White Sox will have one […]


White Sox Sign David Robertson

The White Sox made their second splash of the night on Monday, signing closer David Robertson to a reported four year, $46 million contract. This came about an hour after news broke that the Sox and A’s had agreed to a trade that would bring Jeff Samardzjia to the South Side, although nothing was officially […]
