MLB: Chicago Cubs at Chicago White Sox

When is the next time a Hall of Fame plaque will feature a White Sox cap?

When Frank Thomas was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2014 it was the culmination of the career of one of the greatest players in White Sox history. It was also likely the last time for the foreseeable future we’ll see a player enter Cooperstown with a White Sox cap adorned on his […]

Sale is gone – BPSS Roundtable

On Tuesday, the White Sox executed the first and most daring step of long-rumored rebuild: they traded Chris Sale to Boston in return for top-prospect Yoan Moncada, extremely live arm Michael Kopech, a far from irrelevant secondary prospect Luis Basabe and right-handed relief prospect Victor Diaz. While we can look at this package, see a […]
