Avisail Garcia, Dayan Viciedo, and Giving Up on Potential

The Chicago White Sox have had an interesting offseason. Even if you share Jeff’s view that they aren’t yet a very good team, you can’t deny that they made some nice additions this winter. The Sox added Melky Cabrera, David Robertson, Zach Duke, Adam LaRoche, Jeff Samardzija, and Emilio Bonifacio to a roster that included […]

Jeff Samardzija Shares Crazy Experience On Dan Ryan Chicago Can Relate To

The South Side is happy to see Jeff Samardzija return to Chicago after being traded away by the Cubs on July 4th. This weekend at Sox Fest, Samardzija said the opportunity to play for the White Sox reminded him of a crazy childhood memory on the Dan Ryan expressway before his first game at Comiskey… or was it U.S. Celluar? Not sure. (U.S. Cellular field was built in 1991) Most...

A sense of direction for the White Sox

Since their 2005 World Series triumph, the Chicago White Sox have been to the Playoffs one time. In that span, they have compiled a cumulative record of 718 wins to 741 losses, a .492 win percentage. Basically, the White Sox have been average. The Southsiders, after years of bouncing in and out of playoff contention, were stuck in baseball’s no man’s land: not good enough to...

Chris Sale Finds Another Great Pitch

I’m not sure that we talk about how great Chris Sale is often enough. That’s relatively easily explained, I suppose; after all, with offense down across baseball, there’s more great-looking starting pitchers than ever, and even just within Sale’s division last year we found Corey Kluber, James Shields, Yordano Ventura, Max Scherzer, David Price, Anibal […]

Player Profile #108: David Robertson | RP | CHW

Who’s ready to talk about a relief pitcher? “I am,” the author said begrudgingly. It should come as no surprise to you by now, but I really, really hate wasting words on relief pitchers. Give me a closer depth chart, give me a basic tiering of options with job security, give me some next-in-line options and a couple deep sleepers, and I’m good to go. But like it or not,...

A Star in the Making: Carlos Rodon to Become the Next Chris Sale?

This off-season has brought many blessings and great talents to the South Side of Chicago. Rick Hahn went on the aggressive, attacking free agency quickly and then grabbing one of the biggest names on the trade market in Jeff Samardzija. Another Southpaw on the Rise   With all the big talent being acquired, it’s easy for prospects to be forgotten, but one who belongs on everyone’s...

Player Profile #116: Melky Cabrera | OF | CHW

I should start this post with full disclosure: I’m a big Melky Cabrera fan. When he came up for the Yankees in 2005, playing center field as a 21-year-old rookie, I was really excited (obviously, I’m a Yankees fan). But, when Joe Torre decided to let him start against the Red Sox in a huge July game at the height of that rivalry, I knew that was a bad idea. As exciting as he...

Red Sox Are In On Reliever Ronald Belisario

(USAToday Photo)In an odd turn of events, the Red Sox are reportedly interested in signing relief pitcher Ronald Belisario—who delivered a 5.56 ERA last year for the White Sox. The 32-year old Belisario was actually Chicago's closer for a while in 2014, appearing in 66.1 innings for The South-Siders. While the right-hander did have two outstanding seasons for the Dodgers (2009...

Player Profile #121: Alexei Ramirez | SS | CHW

On April 16 of last season, Alexei Ramirez set a White Sox club record by hitting safely in the first 16 games of the season. That was only the beginning. After two down seasons in which his power seemed to have vanished, the former 15 HR player had the look of a swing-happy, slap-hitting, speed-only player who maintained fantasy value solely by virtue of his shortstop eligibility...

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 to White Sox catchers when it comes to 2015. When you hear each name, you’ll probably groan...

During this past off-season, the Chicago White Sox presented their fans with the type of furious spending spree that is usually witnessed on the Northside of the city.

Chicago White Sox: bullpen set to destroy 2015 season

The Chicago White Sox have reloaded rather than rebuilt their team this off-season, which has put them in a position to make a strong playoff push for 2015. On paper, they have strengthened their former weaknesses at starting pitching, closer, and left field.

The White Sox still aren't a very good team

The White Sox won’t stop.
