Chicago White Sox: struggling a sign of future success

It’s hard to argue how an 8 – 9 start to the baseball season looks promising. But for as much as the Chicago White Sox have struggled to start this year, they find themselves only four games out of a division that has looked far more competitive than once thought. Interestingly enough, it is the disappointing start that foreshadows the team’s competitive future in the American...

Sale and Samardzija Had No Business Getting Into a Brawl

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...
