Three Bats That Make Sense for the Sox

The MLB Trade Deadline is just about here. Thanks to a sudden surge of offense and some quality play by our Sox, it looks as if the winds have changed faster than a politician’s mind and our Southsiders now find themselves as potential buyers. With the team just 2.5 games back of a Wild Card […]

Bonifaci-no? Emilio’s Role Seems Vague and Unnecessary

While the White Sox have played a better brand of baseball of late, the offense is still leaving a lot to be desired. Robin Ventura has done some things to tinker with the lineup recently, including shifting guys around in the order and giving certain players more at-bats. One of those guys who has seen […]

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 […]

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 […]

Plenty of Rumors, but Tough to see Ramirez Leaving

On the same day Jose Abreu and Alexei Ramirez received well-deserved Silver Slugger honors, “The Cuban Missile” found himself as part of a different kind of news. On Thursday, Bruce Levine of CBSChicago.com reported that the seven-year veteran has garnered a lot of interest, and specifically, the Yankees, Dodgers, and Mets have inquired about him. […]

Gordon Beckham Traded to Angels

Ladies and gentlemen, the Gordon Beckham era is over on the south side of Chicago. Late Thursday afternoon, Rick Hahn made an August trade for a second consecutive season, dealing the long-time White Sox second baseman to the Los Angeles Angels for a player to be named later and/or cash. There have been reports saying […]

Gillaspie in Two-Hole Makes Too Much Sense

It’s been since the 2005-2006 seasons when the White Sox have had the same player bat second in the order over 100 times in consecutive seasons, when Tadahito Iguchi accomplished that. Before Iguchi, a Sox player hadn’t done that since Luis Aparicio in 1969-1970 (although Joey Cora was on his way to accomplishing such if […]

Maikel Cleto Called Up for a Second Go-Around

While the team on the north side of town made some big news in terms of call-ups this afternoon, the White Sox made a minor transaction themselves. The team purchased the contract of Maikel Cleto from AAA Charlotte to take the place of Taylor Thompson, who was optioned back to AAA after yesterday’s game. This […]

Persistent Offense Leads Sox to Come-From-Behind Victory over Twins

Riding a 5-2 road trip into the Chicago, the White Sox opened up a six-game homestand on Elvis Night against the Minnesota Twins on Friday. Despite Chris Sale‘s command being the worst we’ve seen in a long time, the ace pitched through it, kept the Sox in the game, and the offense overcame a poor […]

Abreu’s Record Pace Continues in Romp of Tigers

The White Sox have yet to win consecutive series this season, but on Tuesday night, they took a step forward to doing so. Behind 15 hits and three (should have been four) Tiger errors, the Sox rode another  quality start from Jose Quintana en route to an 11-4 series-opening victory at Comerica Park in Detroit. […]

Wilkins, Ravelo Emerging as Future Options

With Paul Konerko set to retire after the 2014 season and Adam Dunn’s contract expiring, the role of 1B/DH alongside prodigy Jose Abreu could be up for grabs next season. We’ve heard the common names and options by now. Dayan Viciedo, if he’s still around, makes sense if a stronger defensive outfielder is signed in […]

Noesi Leads Way to Win Over Twins

After a disappointing end to the homestand, the White Sox headed north tonight to kick-off a four game set against the last-place Minnesota Twins. Behind a solid outing from Hector Noesi and some timely hitting from a host of players, our Sox were able to bounce back from the two losses to the Royals and […]

Closer’s Role Gets More Complex as Putnam Heads to Disabled List

The injury bug hasn’t been kind to the Chicago White Sox this season, as players have hit the disabled list right and left. This afternoon, we were met with the news that yet another important member of the club will spend some time sidelined, as Zach Putnam was placed on the 15-day disabled list with […]

Offense Stifled as Royals take Two of Three

After taking two games in a weekend series against the Houston Astros to being the second half of the season, momentum looked as if it carried over when our White Sox defeated the Royals on Monday night. However, two straight one-run showings from White Sox hitters left the team winless on Tuesday and Wednesday, handing […]
