A thin roster compounds the effects of bad decisions and vice versa In his White Sox debut on Wednesday, Anthony Ranaudo should’ve had a game worth celebrating. He carried a no-hitter into the sixth and held the Cubs to just two hits over 6⅔ innings while becoming the first White Sox pitcher to hit a home run since Mark Buehrle in 2009. Instead, he became immediately immersed...

Maybe the White Sox can have their cake and eat it too. While White Sox fans have been sitting and wondering whether Jose Quintana or Chris Sale would be with the team on August 1, it seems that interest is peaking in another White Sox pitcher, James Shields. When the White Sox acquired James Shields on June 4, the White Sox were looking at a way to add a solid fifth starter after...

There certainly hasn’t been a lot to smile about on the South side recently. Watching the White Sox has been just short of painful many nights, which tends to drown out the positive aspect of certain things such as “Hey, look over there! Miguel Gonzalez has been really consistent lately!” That’s been quite a truism as of late. Behind Jose Quintana and Chris Sale, Gonzalez...

Tyler Saladino started at second base again Wednesday, but White Sox manager Robin Ventura won't commit to Saladino being there most of the time in Brett Lawrie's absence. Lawrie was placed on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to July 22) with a strained left hamstring. Infielder Carlos Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.

David Robertson has established a nice home for his family in a Chicago neighborhood 20 minutes away from U.S. Cellular Field. If the White Sox closer had a preference, they would stay in that home the rest of the 2016 season and for the remainder of his four-year, $46 million deal agreed upon with the team prior to the 2015 season. But as the veteran hurler well knows, he doesn't have a say.

It’s been quite an interesting few days for Chicago White Sox in regard to clubhouse-related stories. By now you likely know of White Sox ace Chris Sale being sent home on Saturday — on a day he was supposed to start — and then being suspended five days by the organization, after literally cutting up throwback uniforms so that the team couldn’t wear them. And now, we have...
