White Sox release journeyman utility man Travis Ishikawa

According to a report from Dan Hayes of Comcast SportsNet Chicago, the Chicago White Sox have released journeyman utility man Travis Ishikawa.  Failing to make a big league appearance while a member of the White Sox’s organization, Ishikawa will presumably find work sometime in the near future especially if he is willing to ink a minor league deal. The 32-year-old originally broke...

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...

So What’s Wrong With Carlos Rodon?

Before the 2016 season started, all reasonable Chicago White Sox fans knew that a good number of things would have to break just right for the team to be legitimate contenders come September and October. Improvements had been made, but there were still multiple holes in the roster that raised enough concern for what looked to be on paper an 83-84 win team. One of the more noticeable...

White Sox survive doubleheader and turn to Chris Sale

Resumption of Cy Young quest aligns with resumption of normal -- albeit difficult -- schedule In the end, the doubleheader of doom between the White Sox and Indians turned out to be fairly mundane for both teams. The games were different enough -- and the starters lasted long enough -- that neither manager had to consider using the same relievers. Mat Latos gave up two dispiriting...

White Sox SS Tyler Saladino goes through intricate handshake routine alone

The Chicago White Sox lead the AL Central by 2.5 games and are among the best teams in baseball. As a result, they're having a great deal of fun on the field (turning triple plays) and off it.Shortstop Tyler Saladino has been a centerpiece for said fun, mainly pulling off trick shots as he did recently. He also has an incredibly elaborate pregame handshake routine ... with no one...

White Sox reach crossroads with Jose Abreu

As bad as the last four games have been, the current White Sox offense is a huge upgrade over last season’s unit and possesses more potential for above-average production than anything that’s been viewable on the south side this decade. But even with their positives, they are not a unit that can paper over their franchise cornerstone bat turning into a replacement-level player...

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...

WATCH: George Springer’s strong vertical leap helps rob Jose Abreu of home run

Most everything this season has been going the way of the Chicago White Sox. And most everything has been going against the Houston Astros. But for one play on Thursday, the ‘Stros had the upper hand — thanks to some major hops from George Springer. With two outs and none on in the bottom of the first inning in Chicago, Jose Abreu sent a deep fly ball to right field ...

Triple Plays Are Becoming a Habit For The White Sox

CHICAGO- The Chicago White Sox did it again on Wednesday night. They turned a triple play for the second time this season. It’s the first time they’ve pulled off this accomplishment since 2006, and they’re the first team to do it since the 2007 Philadelphia Phillies. Although this triple play was a little more basic than the one they turned last month, it’s still significant...

White Sox turn their second triple play of the season (VIDEO)

The calendar hasn’t even hit June (39 games old, to be exact) and the Chicago White Sox have accomplished a rare feat this season…twice. Unlike the zany one they pulled off on April 22 against the Texas Rangers, the triple play that was turned on Wednesday versus Houston was in the far more conventional, around-the-horn style. The Chicago White Sox are kinda good at getting...

White Sox turned their second triple play of the season

Triple plays are a rare bird in Major League Baseball. Grand slams and perfect games may be rare, but the triple play is something that usually only comes along a handful of times every year. It’s May 18 and the Chicago White Sox are just 39 games into the 2016 season. As of tonight, they already have two triple plays on the year after turning their second one against the Houston...

Ozzie Guillen interviewed for White Sox job while blackout drunk

Ozzie Guillen’s tenure as the Chicago White Sox manager was nothing if not colorful. So, it’s only fitting that it started in an especially colorful way. In a story on ESPN, Guillen said that he interviewed for the White Sox job the day after an all-night party, celebrating the then Florida Marlins (whom he coached for) winning the World Series in 2003. “We started drinking...

Adam Eaton Has Been Baseball’s Quietest Superstar

One problem you’ll hear with last year’s underachieving Chicago White Sox roster is that it was too heavy on the stars-and-scrubs model. Plenty of production came from guys like Chris Sale, Jose Quintana, and Jose Abreu. Very little production came from the rest of the infield, the back end of the rotation, and both corner-outfield spots. But this year’s White Sox have improved...

Using Statcast Against Jose Abreu

A few days ago, in the FanGraphs chat room, there was a little discussion about whether Statcast more favored run production or run prevention. I’m of the mind that having so much information works to the advantage of the pitchers and defenders, myself. I wrote about that a couple Hardball Times Annuals ago. But it’s by no means a settled matter. Someone during our conversation...

Chicago White Sox: The case for more Tyler Saladino

Chicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn will remember the 2015-2016 offseason mostly for his acquisitions of third baseman Todd Frazier and second baseman Brett Lawrie, and probably the late signing of pitcher Mat Latos. An unsung acquisition is the signing of veteran shortstop Jimmy Rollins. Many casual fans around the league probably don’t even realize that Rollins is still...
