WHITE SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Let’s Talk About that Other Chicago Team

If you’ve been following, you are well aware that Chicago has had one heck of an offseason. As it turns out, I’m not just talking about the Cubs. We’ve already been over how promising things are beginning to look there. So, what about the White Sox? You know, the team I unceremoniously wrote off last season by suggesting they trade ace Chris Sale—a 25-year-old pitcher who...

Updated Outlook: Chicago’s Crosstown Cup

For years, Chicago’s Crosstown Cup has seemed like a competition of which bad baseball team was slightly better than the other bad baseball team. Thankfully, it appears that tradition is set to end, and that the rivalry between the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox will be resurrected with fresh intensity in 2015. After a year that saw both teams go a combined 146-178, 2015 promises...

Chicago White Sox: Top 10 Prospects

1. Carlos Rodon LHP – As the #3 overall pick back in June out of North Carolina State, Rodon was looked at by many as the draft’s most MLB-ready talent. He quickly worked his way through the White Sox farm system, and finished last season with the Charlotte Knights, skipping multiple levels in the process. Still just 22, Rodon finished his first season with an overall 2.92...

#TBT White Sox Fan Runs Into Outfield, Gets Smoked By 6 Security Guards

Back in 2007, a White Sox fan in the stands at U.S. Cellular Field captured some footage of another fan running on the field and getting tackled by security. You know when you are sitting at home during a boring baseball game and all of a sudden the crowd is cheering for no reason and you just think to yourself, ‘damn, I bet someone is running on the field and of course it won’t...

Win-Now Mentality Means Time for Ventura to Produce

If the last few weeks have indicated anything, it’s that Jerry Reinsdorf and the White Sox are tired of waiting. After some seasons of taking a wait-and-see approach, Reinsdorf opened his checkbook, and Rick Hahn delivered with a closer, a top-end right-handed starter, a left fielder and second hitter, a left-handed bat to protect Jose Abreu, and a left-handed reliever not named...

Player Profile #177: Jose Quintana | SP | CHW

By almost any metric, Jose Quintana was a much-improved pitcher last year; ERA, FIP, xFIP, SIERA, K%, BB%, GB%, FB%, HR/FB — he posted better numbers in all of them. But of all those stats I just listed, there’s one of them that stands out as having significantly more luck than the rest — his HR/FB rate. Quintana is a member of the Chicago White Sox. You knew that. (If you...

Player Profile #178: Jake Odorizzi | SP | TB

FanGraphs has spent some time this week breaking down the Chicago White Sox in light of their surprisingly aggressive offseason. True to FanGraphs form, much of their analysis is based on 2015 projections provided by Steamer and ZiPS, and for whatever reason, neither seems to like the White Sox that much this coming season. Jose Quintana’s 2015 projection has generated a good...

Perhaps no team in baseball has improved themselves more on paper than the Chicago White Sox. The question is just how much did they improve themselves?

Chicago news: Harrelson pumped up about White Sox moves; won’t cut back schedule

Forget about Ken Harrelson working a reduced schedule of White Sox games in 2015.

I was looking (at missing some games). But now with this thing...

The White Sox still aren't a very good team

The White Sox won’t stop.
