Giancarlo Stanton Provides White Sox Opportunity to Improve

I’ve written about this quite a bit in the last few years, but if the White Sox truly want to compete in the future, they’re going to have to spend more money.  It’s simply inevitable. When you look at recent examples of teams coming out of their scorched-earth rebuilds — think Astros, Cubs and even the […]

White Sox Non-Tender Four Players

The White Sox have been eliminated from the Shohei Ohtani Sweepstakes, and unless something truly bizarre happens, are not in the conversation for Giancarlo Stanton either.  But unlike some clubs, even once the dust settles for those two, the White Sox aren’t going to start chasing Yu Darvish or J.D.

That’s an argument for another day. However, while Rick Hahn indicated at this week’s GM meetings in Orlando […]

Plethora of pitching prospects puts White Sox in good position

“Prospects will break your heart” is a phrase you’ve likely read on a good number of occasions on this site and others. “Pitching prospects will break your heart” is even more apt, as any scout or evaluator can likely rattle off a good dozen or so examples of pitching prospects who failed to live up […]

In Search of Roster Filler

The 2017 season was the ultimate transformation year for the White Sox, as from the offseason through the following trade deadline, the front office managed to almost completely turn over a roster it decided it wasn’t capable of turning into a contender. Unlike some rebuilds, the fruits of the White Sox teardown came in the form […]
