Chris Sale out three weeks with foot injury

Man, baseball players can be clumsy.   Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale became the latest ballplayer to go down with an odd injury, as the White Sox announced he’ll miss three weeks with a broken foot. Sale apparently suffered the injury at home. It’s unclear what exactly Sale did to injure himself, but general manager Rick Hahn did give this (perhaps tongue-in-cheek?)...

Chicago White Sox 2015 Season Preview: Bullpen

Going into the offseason, one of the biggest holes on the Chicago roster was the bullpen. Last year, general manager Rick Hahn traded away closer Addison Reed and did little to add any arms to the ‘pen.

Chicago White Sox 2015 Starting Pitching Preview

Going into the offseason, general manager Rick Hahn had a checklist. On the top of that list was a right-handed starting pitcher. In December, the second year GM landed his target in former Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija.

Six weeks of nothing: Time to think out of box for spring training coverage

When I covered the White Sox in the ’80s, people always were jealous that I got to escape winter and spend six weeks in Florida. Frankly, I really didn’t like it. I’ll admit the weather was nice, but spring training felt like a slog of writing seemingly endless stories. Plus once the games began, you spent those nice spring days confined to a hot, tight press box. Not exactly...

Ken ‘The Hawk’ Harrelson Took to the Airwaves to Share Another Stupid Thought

Chicago White Sox announcer Ken Harrelson went on the Mully and Hanley show on 670 The Score Friday morning to discuss, well the White Sox, and in doing so proclaimed Adam Eaton as the best leadoff hitter in the American League and maybe the best in the entire MLB.
