Despite recent struggles, White Sox remain confident

The Chicago White Sox are officially in a funk, having dropped 11 of 15 games heading into Friday night’s game at Kansas City. The team’s struggles have been in nearly every phase of the game — hitting, pitching and occasionally fielding.

The MLB Draft and the Chicago White Sox: A Recent History

The current regime of the Chicago White Sox, for all intents and purposes, began in 2000 when Kenny Williams took over as general manager. Williams replaced Ron Schueler and wound up as the third-longest tenured GM in team history, behind only Roland Hemond and Harry Grabiner. While Williams handed over the GM reins to Rick Hahn after the 2012 season, he still serves as the team’s...

Chicago White Sox: It’s time to cheer for Todd Frazier

It’s difficult not to cheer for Todd Frazier. The Chicago White Sox third basemen seems to be one of the giddiest and team-first players in Major League Baseball, being a key cog in helping turning around the chemistry issues that plagued the ballclub throughout spring training (yes, this is a sly reference to Drake LaRoche). He’s also one of the best players in the game now...

It’s (Probably) Not Time To Panic on the South Side Just Yet

“It doesn’t mean the whole season is going to end up this way.’’ Manager Robin Ventura told reporters on Monday. Ventura is right. Of course, he was more specifically referring to White Sox first basemen Jose Abreu’s recent struggles at the plate, but this quote can certainly fit into a variety of different contexts for his South siders lately. After an April that saw...

The White Sox use up their cushion, so now what?

Offense will have to figure out how to get more runs from talent on hand until trade market heats up For the first time in a month, the White Sox are in danger of dropping into second place at the end of the day. The Sox last held a half-game lead on April 24. It topped out at six games after an 8-4 victory over Texas on May 9, but a 4-11 stretch since has them back where they started...

Did Alex Gordon’s wrist break the Royals’ chances?

Heading into the 2016 season, many were down on the Kansas City Royals’ chances. Despite winning the World Series and two straight AL pennants, improvements made by the Tigers, White Sox and Indians during the off-season matched with expected regression and the expected loss of free agents largely lead to the Royals being expected to finish in the middle of the pack in the AL Central...

Chicago White Sox: Todd Frazier proving to be the pick up of the year

The Chicago White Sox traded for third baseman Todd Frazier in the 2015 offseason in hopes to boost a lineup that mightily struggled during 2015 to scratch runs across the board. At third, Frazier plays a position that has been a disaster for the White Sox for nearly a decade, since a back injury to Joe Crede made him inconsistent in his play and led to his eventual retirement. White...

Chicago White Sox: Buy high on Chris Sale

A lot of Chris Sale puns have been made since the Chicago White Sox’s lanky lefty made his debut as a 21-year-old reliever in 2010, but it’s time for another pun. In a fantasy baseball league? Buy high on Chris Sale. It wasn’t a great pun, but it rings very true in 2016, especially after his ninth start of the season this evening. Sale isn’t putting up ace numbers. He isn’t...
