WHITE SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

1917 World Series: Rare film found when the White Sox were clean

It’s not easy being a White Sox fan. They go to the World Series about once every two generations. And they are much better known for the Series they threw (1919) than the recent one they won (2005).

Ventura’s Grand Slam Single Endures

One of the players I most enjoyed covering was Robin Ventura for those two years he played for the Yankees. In a clubhouse full of stars and egos, Ventura was a voice of calm, reason and humorous relief. I enjoyed stopping by his locker to shoot the breeze for a minute or two, talking about things other than baseball. Very smart, clever and possessing an insight on numerous issues...

White Sox Rumors: Adding left handed power will be an offseason focus

The Chicago White Sox appear to be going young with both Carlos Rodon and second baseman Micah Johnson expected to be big contributors in their first years. However with stars like Chris Sale and Jose Abreu, who are among the best at their respective positions, a complete rebuild will not be necessary for them to compete. As they enter the offseason, Bruce Levine is reporting...

White Sox Rumors: Alexei Ramirez could be dealt

If there is one player that is proven in the Chicago White Sox lineup, it would be their shortstop, Alexei Ramirez.  He has been a staple in their lineup for the past seven years, and is someone who is under team control until 2016.

White Sox Off-Season Needs: Position Players

The 2014 version of the White Sox was certainly an improvement over the 2013 team. In record alone the team improved 10 games from last season. And while a 73 win season is certainly nothing to write home about, there was plenty to be excited about. However, if the Sox want to compete next year, or in the next few years, they still have plenty of work to do. Here we are going to...

Paul Konerko leaves tribute to family in infield dirt

I’m not going to lie to you, I’m kinda glad the Paul Konerko retirement train left the station long after the Derek Jeter lovefest began. Because after this last weekend of the baseball season, the longtime Chicago White Sox star’s final games have made me feel all the feels. Sox fan Chris Claeys returning Konerko’s 2005 grand slam ball, his new statue at U.S. Cellular Field…that...

Paul Konerko Surprised by Great Gift

Lost in the shadow of Derek Jeter’s season long retirement party is Paul Konerko. You see, back in December, the Chicago White Sox first baseman announced 2014 would be his last season, but, it would seem, it wasn’t until late in the campaign before anyone decided to remember. That is, until Saturday, when the Southsiders pulled out all the stops and did their own Jeter-style...

Paul Konerko's retirement also deserves your attention

For reasons that are beyond obnoxious at this point, the good, bad and absurd commentary on Derek Jeter’s farewell tour — and the man himself — continues to rage.

End of season post-mortem: Chicago White Sox

For a team fighting to avoid finishing last in their division and on their way to their third losing season in the last four years, things are actually looking up for the White Sox.

WATCH: Presenting the worst home run call in MLB history

It’s easy to use hyperbole in sports blogging, but the headline here is no exaggeration. The following clip comes from Tuesday night’s White Sox-Twins game, and believe it or not, the man behind this home run call is not Hawk Harrelson, but broadcast partner Steve Stone.
