MLB: Spring Training-Texas Rangers at Chicago White Sox

South Side Morning 5: Flashing the Goods

The White Sox wrapped up a bad first half with a win against the bad Royals. That’s all fine and well, but more importantly, their final day of action heading into the All-Star break was ripe with positive moments from some of their young building blocks. 1. It would be apt to describe Yoan Moncada’s […]

Four White Sox on BP’s Midseason Top 50 Prospects List

Despite a frustrating amount of injuries this season, the White Sox farm system remains among the best in baseball. While half of their Preseason Top 10 have spent time on the DL in 2018, there’s still enough high-end talent to give you hope, and the string of bad luck hasn’t necessarily pushed back their competitive […]

The White Sox Can’t Have Nice Things

The White Sox being bad is a surprise to approximately no one. You could quibble with the degree at which they’ve been bad — I didn’t necessarily anticipate 30 games below .500 nearing the All-Star break, but the common refrain since the start of 2017 has been to focus on the development of individual pieces […]

The White Sox dropped their fourth straight in Houston on Sunday afternoon and have now lost nine of their last 11 games.  They remain on pace to win 50-something games, which is apparently not even noteworthy as they are still five games ahead of the hapless Orioles and Royals.  Unlike those squads, the White Sox don’t look to […]

A 10-5 win Sunday made for a satisfying end to an otherwise moribund weekend for the White Sox, as the series-ending win over the Rangers was preceded by a pair of losses where the White Sox were collectively outscored 24-7. 1. An uptick in velocity and command of his breaking pitches were the main fuel behind a […]

South Side Morning 5: The White Sox lost a normal game where nothing weird happened

1. “Wow, what a game!” Or maybe it’s “ugh, that game went on forever.” Hopefully everyone is on board with the former, because after a winning series, it sure feels like a glass half-full kind of morning. The White Sox and Twins battled it out for 13 innings before the Twins were finally able to […]

South Side Morning 5: White Sox Troll Twins

Rooting against your team is unnatural.  In 2018, legions of fans in almost every sport have been persuaded to root for losses in order to recoup higher draft picks.  There’s a cold logic to it, and as an analyst, I can explain the cold logic and whether I believe it is correct or incorrect depending […]
