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 Abreu, and a left-handed reliever not named...

Player Profile #177: Jose Quintana | SP | CHW

By almost any metric, Jose Quintana was a much-improved pitcher last year; ERA, FIP, xFIP, SIERA, K%, BB%, GB%, FB%, HR/FB — he posted better numbers in all of them. But of all those stats I just listed, there’s one of them that stands out as having significantly more luck than the rest — his HR/FB rate. Quintana is a member of the Chicago White Sox. You knew that. (If you...

Player Profile #178: Jake Odorizzi | SP | TB

FanGraphs has spent some time this week breaking down the Chicago White Sox in light of their surprisingly aggressive offseason. True to FanGraphs form, much of their analysis is based on 2015 projections provided by Steamer and ZiPS, and for whatever reason, neither seems to like the White Sox that much this coming season. Jose Quintana’s 2015 projection has generated a good...

So. How was your weekend?

That is how Rick Hahn greeted the media today when making the formal introductions of Jeff Samardzija, David Robertson, and Melky Caberea. It has been interesting to sit back and watch Winter Meetings play out and all, to see what happens. When the news came that Jeff was heading to the Sox, well at first to be honest I was not happy. To me, it felt like he had such as snobbish attitude...

Chicago news: Harrelson pumped up about White Sox moves; won’t cut back schedule

Forget about Ken Harrelson working a reduced schedule of White Sox games in 2015. The team’s aggressive off-season has the veteran play-by-play man pumped up and ready to go the distance. “(The moves) sort of convinced me,” said Harrelson, 73. “They said to check the schedule and see what games I wanted to do. I was looking (at missing some games). But now with this thing...

The White Sox still aren't a very good team
