WHITE SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

No Wind in Chicago’s Sale as Royals Best Sox

“The Hunt for Blue October” is alive and well this September. Last week, the team was on the brink of disaster, and fans, including myself, were slowly starting to give up on our beloved Royals. After taking two out of three from the Chicago White Sox, the people have slowly been sucked back in, and have regained the slightest bit of hope. After dropping the longest game in Royals...

White Sox outlast Royals in record-setting game

White Sox manager Robin Ventura was still in a joking mood -- even after managing a nine-inning game that lasted 4 hours, 16 minutes Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium. “I didn’t even notice,” Ventura joked of the game’s length. “I thought it was nice and crisp.” It probably helped Ventura’s mood that the Sox pulled off a 7-5 victory in a game in which 15 different...

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. Armed with an MVP-level slugger and one of the best pitchers alive, the White Sox are very quietly shaping up as a team that could soon join the rest of the crowd vying for AL Central supremacy.

Here is Visual Proof That Chris Sale Is Not Human

Thank you, Deadspin, for unraveling the mystery that is the anatomy of White Sox pitcher Chris Sale.  As the article above proves, Chris Sale is, in fact, an invertebrate humanoid alien likely from a galaxy Neil DeGrasse Tyson is yet to know about. How Sale got here, we will never know. Nor will we ever figure out how he doesn’t require weekly elbow reconstruction surgery. One...

Where Marcus Semien’s Weakness Is Strongest

In each of the past two seasons, Chicago White Sox rookie infielder Marcus Semien has recorded among the most impressive walk and strikeout rates in the high minors. Insofar as it’s generally the case that walk and strikeout figures from the high minors translate somewhat predictably to the majors, a reasonable person — and also […]

Hawk Harrelson did something awesome for a White Sox fan

During Tuesday’s A’s-White Sox game, Hawk Harrelson did something great for a White Sox fan and his son sitting in the crowd. Hawk invited the pair up to the broadcast booth to give the young fan a ball. I don’t know what’s going on anymore, but Hawk Harrelson is coming off more and more likable this year. It’s pretty great to see fan-friendly actions like this at the...

As Oakland Athletics DH Adam Dunn enters the final month of his career (and potential first playoff appearance, although that is getting more cloudy by the day), his impact on the game and teammates is beginning to be apparent.  Known for an easy-going style (and mashing the ball), he was popular with teammates and fans alike.  Two former teammates of the Chicago White Sox took...

White Sox Announcer Delivers Incredibly Uninspired Home Run Call (Video)

The Chicago White Sox’s season is done, and so is broadcaster Steve Stone. The 62-75 Sox haven’t given fans much to get pumped about this year, but even when they do put on a show, their announcers can’t even fake a little enthusiasm. During the 10th inning of Tuesday’s game against the Minnesota Twins, Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning to extend Chicago’s...

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. Stone has been taking turns at the mic doing play-by-play for some innings and subbing for Harrelson.  On...

LLWS more than tripled White Sox in Chicago

I’ll confess that I am not a fan of the Little League World Series.  I know, I know… that makes me an evil monster.  I accepted that fact a long time ago, though.  The thought of watching 13 year olds do something instead of much older, much better professionals has never really appealed to me.  Nobody would ever think about watching Pop Warner football instead of the NFL...
