Chicago Cubs Legend Ernie Banks Dies At 83

On Friday, January 23rd, it was announced from multiple sources and confirmed by the Chicago Cubs that Hall of Famer Ernie Banks had passed away. The face of the Chicago Cubs, Banks was someone who I grew up idolizing, but had never saw play. I’m a third generation of a family bloodline, who happen to be die hard Chicago Cubs fans.  Growing up, I worshiped a collection of Cubs...

Player Profile #108: David Robertson | RP | CHW

Who’s ready to talk about a relief pitcher? “I am,” the author said begrudgingly. It should come as no surprise to you by now, but I really, really hate wasting words on relief pitchers. Give me a closer depth chart, give me a basic tiering of options with job security, give me some next-in-line options and a couple deep sleepers, and I’m good to go. But like it or not,...

A Star in the Making: Carlos Rodon to Become the Next Chris Sale?

This off-season has brought many blessings and great talents to the South Side of Chicago. Rick Hahn went on the aggressive, attacking free agency quickly and then grabbing one of the biggest names on the trade market in Jeff Samardzija.

Player Profile #116: Melky Cabrera | OF | CHW

I should start this post with full disclosure: I’m a big Melky Cabrera fan. When he came up for the Yankees in 2005, playing center field as a 21-year-old rookie, I was really excited (obviously, I’m a Yankees fan). But, when Joe Torre decided to let him start against the Red Sox in a huge July game at the height of that rivalry, I knew that was a bad idea. As exciting as he...

Red Sox Are In On Reliever Ronald Belisario

(USAToday Photo)In an odd turn of events, the Red Sox are reportedly interested in signing relief pitcher Ronald Belisario—who delivered a 5.56 ERA last year for the White Sox. The 32-year old Belisario was actually Chicago's closer for a while in 2014, appearing in 66.1 innings for The South-Siders. While the right-hander did have two outstanding seasons for the Dodgers (2009...

Player Profile #121: Alexei Ramirez | SS | CHW

On April 16 of last season, Alexei Ramirez set a White Sox club record by hitting safely in the first 16 games of the season. That was only the beginning. After two down seasons in which his power seemed to have vanished, the former 15 HR player had the look of a swing-happy, slap-hitting, speed-only player who maintained fantasy value solely by virtue of his shortstop eligibility...

Around The Diamond: Catching Conundrum

Our positional previews continue with a look behind the dish. While there is a heck of a lot to be excited about when it comes to the 2015 Chicago White Sox, the catcher position leaves much to be desired. In most people’s minds, there are four, maybe five names to watch for when it comes to White Sox catchers when it comes to 2015. When you hear each name, you’ll probably groan...

Chicago White Sox: Samardzija one and done in Chicago?

During this past off-season, the Chicago White Sox presented their fans with the type of furious spending spree that is usually witnessed on the Northside of the city. General manager Rick Hahn diligently worked the phone lines and trade routes to bring the team on the precipice of a World Series contender. But as exciting as a potential magical season sounds to the fan base, the...

Remember When Frank Thomas Tried to Change the Rap Game?

“The White Sox Got Em, Open Up Wide” is a little known 90’s rap gem inspired and produced by one of the most prolific sluggers of the era, Hall of Famer, The Big Hurt, Frank Thomas. Thomas doesn’t take the Shaq route and perform the song himself, but serves as the executive producer, label owner and of course, the inspiration. The cover art features a drawing of Frank Thomas...

Minor league team is confused about poetry

The Kannapolis Intimidators (A-ball affiliate of the Chicago White Sox in the South Atlantic League) are trying to sell tickets for their 2015 season, but are having some issues. Their home season begins on April 16th against the Hickory Crawdads, and the Intimidators want a packed house. There’s just one problem… We don't do poetry. We do baseball.

Chicago White Sox: bullpen set to destroy 2015 season

The Chicago White Sox have reloaded rather than rebuilt their team this off-season, which has put them in a position to make a strong playoff push for 2015. On paper, they have strengthened their former weaknesses at starting pitching, closer, and left field. Jeff Samardzija provides them with that illusive number two starter that they have struggled finding to pair up with their...
