Just How Messy is the White Sox’ Organization?

The 2015 season was a disappointment for pretty much everyone and everything involved with your Chicago White Sox. There was all sorts of hope and expectations surrounding the team after a flashy off-season filled with moves that were supposed to help the team to compete now and moving forward. And why not? They had some excellent […]

Samardzija and the Sox First Inning Woes

Jeff Samardzija was brought in to be the Batman to Chris Sale’s Superman. Even though he was going to be the number two pitcher in the rotation, the expectation was that he would really be pitcher 1-A. Eleven starts into his White Sox career and Samardzija is 4-3 with a 4.68 ERA and a 1.342 […]

The Next Number the White Sox Should Retire

With Paul Konerko getting his number retired this weekend it got me to thinking who might be the next person to be honored by the White Sox by having their number taken out of circulation. Certainly there are some names that pop up when talking to fans but for me there is one choice that […]

White Sox back to .500 and Showing Signs of Life

Don’t look now, but the White Sox are actually back to .500 at 17-17 following their first three-game sweep in Oakland since 1997. To the surprise of many, the Sox were able to get themselves back to break-even by winning five straight ROAD games after starting the year 2-12 away from home. Now the Sox […]

Series Preview: Sox in Baltimore to take on the O’s

The White Sox hit the road after a fairly successful homestand which saw them win four out of six and take series against the Indians and the Royals. The big blemish on the homestand came in the first game against Kansas City, which saw a bench clearing brawl thanks to renowned jerk Yordano Ventura’s antics. […]

Series Preview: Sox Host Irritable Royals This Weekend

The White Sox continue their homestand and their stretch against the AL Central with a four game series against the Royals.

Series Preview: Sox Return Home to Take on Tribe

The White Sox return home for the second homestand this year after a 2-3 road trip to Cleveland and Detroit. The Sox will continue their stretch against the AL Central to begin the season with a three game set with the Indians starting Monday. The Sox and Tribe split a two game series last week […]

Ventura’s No-Challenge Is Inexcusable

Robin Ventura was one of my favorite White Sox players growing up. When the Sox tagged him to become the manager I was both surprised but intrigued by the possibility. As such, I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt at first. I was even willing to give him a pass for […]

Series Preview: White Sox head to Motown

The White Sox road trip continues with a three game weekend series in Detroit against the red hot Tigers. Detroit comes in with the best record in baseball at 8-1 through their first nine games. They won their first six games of the year and are a perfect 3-0 at home so far. Meanwhile the […]

Series Preview: White Sox head to Cleveland for Two

The White Sox hit the road for a five game trip that starts on Tuesday with a brief two-game series against the Tribe. The Indians also come in at 2-4 on the young season after being swept at home by the apparently unbeatable Tigers. Meanwhile, the Sox finally got into the win column by taking […]

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 […]

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 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 […]
