MLB: Chicago White Sox at Cleveland Indians

Betting on the quiet competence of Omar Narvaez

One of the most puzzling decisions the White Sox made going into the 2016 season, a season fully meant to be one resulting in at least a Wild Card chase, was replacing Tyler Flowers and Geovany Soto’s perfectly serviceable seasons at catcher with a platoon of Dioner Navarro and Alex Avila.

Appreciating Nate Jones while he’s still ours

The White Sox loudly announced to the world that they were rebuilding this winter by shipping out their two best players on consecutive days. And then stopped. Completely.

Tigers 5, White Sox 3: Extra Innings, Extra Disappointment

Coming into today’s game, the White Sox were 5-11 on the season when playing the Tigers. It’s been bad. Almost comically bad, but not quite at that level. Just more tragic, which is the 2016 White Sox season in a nutshell. 1. The game started with bang. On the third pitch of the first at […]
