Got a Broom, Its a SWEEP

Yes, Sox fans you are reading that correctly. The win today with Carlos Rodon on the mound, to be honest I was kinda worried with him getting belted last time out. He is getting better and I would like to think that Chris talks with him after the his games to help him get better. Carlos Sanchez belted his second home run today, his first was in last nights game. Alexei Ramirez puts...

Chicago White Sox: first year of a three year window?

The 2015 season has not been very kind to the Chicago White Sox. An off-season centered around a spending spree not seen around these parts very often resulted in disastrous results. Currently, the Sox are in the 5th and last place of the American League Central. Given that they are a whopping 12.5 games out of first, any hopes of competing any time soon have been dashed by the team’s...

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 […]

Brantley looks to continue hot steak against Samardzija, White Sox

With his club looking to avoid a fifth straight defeat, Samardzija could be making one of his last starts for the visiting White Sox on Thursday night against the Cleveland Indians.

Underachieving White Sox Aiming To Turn Things Around In Second Half

The Chicago White Sox haven’t enjoyed a highly successful first half to the 2015 MLB season. After a much-needed All-Star break, they’ll hope they can band together and enjoy a significantly better run during the second half.

Chicago White Sox: rotation ready to be broken up

With this much quality in the starting rotation, the 2015 Chicago White Sox still found a way to flounder toward a 41-44 record, good for 4th worst in all of the American League. With little sign of hope in making any type of run before the July 31st trading deadline, all attention has turned toward that devastatingly despised word, “rebuilding.” As the team is built mostly...

Chicago White Sox inching their way back to the pack, thanks to strong starting pitching

In most years, being 11 games out of first place and sitting in last place in your division would be a kiss of death. Fortunately for the Chicago White Sox, 2015 is not your typical year in the American League, when any team and every team is still very much in the hunt. In winning eight of its last 10, Chicago (40-44) has forced its way back into the mix, mainly on the strength...
