The Mouth Watering All-Chicago Baseball Team

Fans of both Chicago teams do this all the time with their friends at the bar, sitting around a poker table, or while sitting back at a random party. Picking players from each baseball team to create and build an All-Chicago baseball team. I mean, who wouldn’t have liked seeing Robin Ventura making a nice play down the third baseline and Mark Grace picking the ball out of the...

White Sox Slugger Jose Abreu Hitting Over .500 This Spring

Chicago White Sox slugger Jose Abreu has been proving all spring that his American League Rookie of the Year Award in 2014 was no fluke. Unfortunately and oddly, this has gone largely unnoticed or at least unreported by the press. Tuesday Abreu went 4-4 against the Los Angeles Dodgers upping his batting average to an insane .519. He’s played in 17 games and gotten 27 hits in 52...

Ten Big Reasons to Watch the White Sox This Season

Opening Day is fast approaching. The excitement around the White Sox is something that we have not seen in years.

Here are ten reasons why you should be watching the White Sox this season: First Up: Big Slugger, the...

Delicious Items to Add to the Menu of Chicago Ballparks

Get your peanuts, popcorn, hot dogs, and rack of lamb. Ballparks have gotten more creative and innovative with their concession menu. I remember having my first “Walking Taco” at a White Sox game. The treat has caught on elsewhere and is now available at parks across the area. If you visit ballparks across America you will find crazy food choices that will either gross you out...

Chicago White Sox: take a flyer on Rafael Soriano

In what has been one of the most anxiety inducing offseasons for Chicago White Sox fans in recent history, spring training is finally coming to an end with the season starting in just over a week. The time is now to find out if the Rick Hahn renaissance movement is for real as the division is ripe for the taking. On paper, the Sox should be ready to make this October a memorable...

Dear White Sox: stop it

I like what the Chicago White Sox did this winter. They’re going to be a pretty entertaining team to watch. However, this is terrible.

2015 Chicago White Sox Team Preview

The Chicago White Sox went 73-89 in 2014. It could be viewed as an improvement, as the team was 63-99 a year earlier. In manager Robin Ventura‘s first season as the team’s manager, 2012, the White Sox went 85-77, giving Ventura the AL Manager of the Year in his first season behind the bench. The White Sox knew they needed to get better if they wanted to compete with the likes...

Big additions spur big expectations for White Sox

CHICAGO (AP) A decade removed from their most recent championship, the Chicago White Sox once again are eyeing a big season. Their sights are set on an AL Central title after consecutive losing records, maybe even more. The White Sox added to their offense, boosted their rotation, overhauled their bullpen and sent expectations soaring. ''Obviously postseason first, and World Series...

Carlos Rodon Dazzles in Spring Outing

Many have said college is the best time of one’s life, but for Carlos Rodon and Brett Austin, the fun just keeps on rolling. Just when the NC State teammates thought their time as teammates were over, they were both selected by the Chicago White Sox last June in the first and fourth rounds, respectively. While Carlos Rodon is the White Sox top prospect, Austin did not even...

2015 A.L. Central Preview: Chicago White Sox

It has been a busy offseason for the Chicago White Stockings, and one that has certainly improved an underachieving squad from 2014.  From big name pitching prospects to more power in the line-up, the pale hose opened their check books and went shopping.  But will that equal success in 2015?  With an improved division all around, here is a little preview of the White...

Carlos Rodon Dazzles In One Of The Spring’s Top Pitching Performances

Carlos Rodon. Photo Credit: Ron Vesely/Getty Images. The Chicago White Sox named right-hander Jeff Samardzija their Opening Day starter on Wednesday. He will take the place of Chris Sale, who while very close to making a return to the mound after fracturing his right foot earlier this spring, will not be ready for the season opener. Sale, however, may be ready by the time the...

White Sox Announce Jeff Samardzija As Opening Day Starter

Possibly one of the best shifting gears moments in Spring Training is when teams begin to announce their Opening Day starters. It’s a signal that baseball season is close. In fact, it could even be seen as a Bat Signal for fans less, well, ‘enthusiastic’ than others to start really paying attention. There are still plenty of position and rotation battles to be had, but we are...

Chris Sale Not Far From A Return To The Mound

Chris Sale took his first real steps back onto the baseball field on Monday. He ran without issue for the first time since suffering an avulsion fracture to his right foot back on February 27. He was injured in an accident in his Arizona home. Although the nature of the accident hasn’t been made public, it’s not entirely uncommon for offseason activities to render players injured...

White Sox Add Adam Eaton to Long-Term Plan

When the White Sox signed Adam Eaton to a five-year, $23.5 extension over the weekend, the move in and of itself, wasn’t huge news. It wasn’t huge money, and Eaton isn’t a huge player, literally or figuratively. But the move wasn’t just about Eaton, necessarily, rather it was part of a bigger plan. Take it […]

Who’s at second for the Chicago White Sox?

The Chicago White Sox do not have many question marks heading into opening day. This is the most solid the south siders have looked since their World Series run in 2005, so heading into spring training there is just one major hole left to fill. The decision that needs to be made by the Chicago White Sox is who is going to head into the season as the starting second baseman. Gordon...

White Sox starter Sale throws bullpen session, hopes to return soon

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale threw a bullpen session and said he's making progress while recovering from a broken foot. He threw from the mound on Friday, just three weeks after injuring his foot. ''I figured three weeks was like, OK, we can start walking around and moving around,'' the All-Star left-hander said Saturday. ''It actually ended up being a lot...

Chicago White Sox 2015 Preview: 3 Up and 3 Down

It seems like there is nowhere to go but up for the Chicago White Sox in 2015 after finishing 73-89 last year. They finished 17 games behind the division winning Detroit Tigers and looked lifeless for most of the season. Fans demanded that management do something after watching their team lose 188 games over the last two seasons, and General Manager Rick Hahn did just that. The Sox...

Spring Training Position Battle Updates

The White Sox are about two weeks into Spring Training games and while they still have another two-plus weeks of games left before heading north, this seems like a good time to check in with the position battles. While I don’t put a ton of stock into spring numbers, for players competing for specific spots it does carry some weight. So let’s check in and see who has the early...

Can Micah Johnson Defy The Odds?

The allure of a roadrunner, a true game-changer with blazing speed and monster stolen base upside at the top of a batting order, captivates the imagination of fantasy owners every offseason. Sadly, it seems like every time we invest in the top speedsters in the minor leagues, they fail to live up to the hype and leave us feeling like Wile E. Coyote after his latest purchase from...

2015 season preview: Chicago White Sox

For a while there, the Chicago White Sox, along with their North Side counterparts, were the talk of the Major League Baseball offseason.

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?)...
