WHITE SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Snubbed: White Sox Players Who Were Robbed Of Awards

It is an honor to win a prestigious award in baseball. Many great players have won the Cy Young, the MVP and the Rookie of the Year award. The White Sox have had some success winning major awards: Early Wynn, LaMarr Hoyt and Jack McDowell won Cy Young Awards. Nellie Fox, Dick Allen and Frank Thomas have all won the MVP Award. Thomas won two. Luis Aparicio, Gary Peters, Tommie Agee...

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 the last two years because he didn’t have much to work with. But as we enter year four of the Ventura...

While Kris Bryant Gets Promoted, Carlos Rodon Waits

As Kris Bryant heads to North Side of Chicago to make his debut, the lack of movement on the South Side has merited much less attention. Carlos Rodon remains a starting pitcher in Charlotte as the White Sox use two currently inferior pitchers in the rotation. Much of the same arguments for keeping Kris Bryant […]

Series Preview: White Sox head to Motown

White Sox send Petricka to Triple-A on rehab assignment

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago White Sox have sent right-hander Jake Petricka to Triple-A Charlotte on an injury rehabilitation assignment.

White Sox Pitching Prospect Does Something Unbelievable

Winston-Salem Dash pitcher James Dykstra accomplished something impressive on April 15th, he threw a no hitter. No hitters happen, but one stat stands out as something incredible. The Dash are a Class High-A farm team for the White Sox. The 24 year old Dykstra was drafted in the 6th round by the Sox in the 2013 MLB draft. He took to mound against the Potomac Nationals (Washington...

New-Look Bullpen Starting To Make A Statement

While Jeff Samardzija and Chris Sale’s efforts were the headliners as the White Sox picked up their first two wins of the 2015 season over the weekend, they were not able to get it done alone. Given their first two chances to win games since Spring Training, the bullpen came on and slammed the door shut in support of the starters. On both days it was Zach Duke in the eighth and...

Chicago White Sox: season far from over

Four games does not a season make. For any other situation, this statement would be unnecessary to make given the obvious idea it conveys. But this is the Chicago White Sox. Rationality need not apply. In all fairness, nobody enjoys seeing their team go through an 0-4 start to a season that holds such high expectations given the acquisitions made and the amount of money spent in...

Chicago White Sox: A Swing and a Miss

Before the season started, the Chicago White Sox acquired Jeff Samardzija and David Robertson to solidify their bullpen and rotation. When you look at the rotation for the White Sox, even though they are missing Chris Sale you would think it would be league average. Pitching and hitting has been the biggest issue for the...

The White Sox Don’t Need to Re-Sign Jeff Samardzija If…..

Jeff Samardzija is a very good pitcher and a welcome addition to the Chicago White Sox. He is a valuable part of the rotation and hopefully part of the Sox’ future. He will be a free agent after this season and will be looking for a large contract. We published an article recently detailing an interview where he stated that he wasn’t looking for top dollar (Jeff Samardzija Hints...

Preview: Twins at White Sox

Jose Abreu hopes the Chicago White Sox put on a show for their fans when they meet the offensively challenged Minnesota Twins in Friday's home opener. After all, they will be getting their first up-close look at a revamped team. And expectations are high after a busy offseason. "We want to go there and play hard and show our fans we have a good team this year," said Abreu, the AL...

Video: White Sox’s Adam Eaton makes opening bid for catch of the year

It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of MLB’s opening week and make grand declarations that completely lack perspective. But the diving catch Adam Eaton made in Thursday’s game between the White Sox and Royals has a damn good chance of being viewed as the best catch of the 2015 season. Yes, the season is only five days old. But are we going to see a better catch over...

Adam Eaton’s Diving Catch Should Make Every Highlight Reel Of The Week

In addition to making the leaping grab, Eaton ensured that Royals didn’t score in the inning. Unfortunately for Eaton, the Sox would go on Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Chicago White Sox: Rough Opening Day

After a compelling offseason for the Chicago White Sox, expectations were high and fans could not wait to get to opening day. Those feelings were soon put to bed after the White Sox opened with a dud against the Kansas City Royals. The Royals beat the Sox 10-1, and besides a Jose Abreu homer in the seventh inning, nothing went right. Jeff Samardzija The biggest disappointment of...

White Sox, Cubs announcers eager for prospect of calling meaningful games

An excerpt from my Tribune column: ******* Steve Stone laughed and then repeated the question. “Is it easier to do a baseball broadcast when the team you’re covering is doing well?” said the White Sox TV analyst. “I will say this. It is a lot easier for my partner.” News flash: As the Sox go, so goes Ken Harrelson’s mood. Stone is looking forward to a year in which...

Chicago White Sox to Offer Flavored Bacon Flight at U.S. Cellular Field Concessions

For the last few seasons the concessions stands at ballparks across the country have been in an unofficial contest of sorts to see who can come up with the most delicious yet horrible offerings at concession stands. As delectable as they appear to be they are oh so bad for us. I'm talking about monster chili dogs, nine-patty cheeseburgers, fried nachos on a stick--the list could...

The White Sox are catching up

Since winning the World Series in 2005, the Chicago White Sox have only managed one playoff appearance and just four seasons over .500 in the past nine seasons. But if there’s one thing that’s been made apparent in the months leading up to the 2015 Major League Baseball season, it’s this: the White Sox are knocking on the AL Central’s door, and they’ve got plenty to...

White Sox Add Adam Eaton to Long-Term Plan

When the White Sox signed Adam Eaton to a five-year, $23.5 extension over the weekend, the move in and of itself, wasn’t huge news. It wasn’t huge money, and Eaton isn’t a huge player, literally or figuratively. But the move wasn’t just about Eaton, necessarily, rather it was part of a bigger plan. Take it […]

Chris Sale out three weeks with foot injury

Man, baseball players can be clumsy.   Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale became the latest ballplayer to go down with an odd injury, as the White Sox announced he’ll miss three weeks with a broken foot. Sale apparently suffered the injury at home. It’s unclear what exactly Sale did to injure himself, but general manager Rick Hahn did give this (perhaps tongue-in-cheek?)...
