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 […]

South Side Morning 5: Mama Said There’ll Be Weekends Like This

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: 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 […]

Hitting development still the key to the White Sox future

We’ve written about it several times in the past, but one of the more interesting changes in player acquisitions we’ve seen in recent years, coincidentally or not, is the White Sox targeting position players who are at or close to major league-ready.

MLB: Winter Meetings

Miracle on 35th Street: The White Sox Christmas Wishlist

Somewhere on 35th and Shields, Jerry Reinsdorf is reading his great-grandchildren stories of Paul Konerko grand slams, Scott Podsednik walk-off homers, and the greatest postseason run by a starting rotation in MLB history over a cup of hot cocoa. Maybe that’s a bit dramatic. The Winter Meetings are over and the rumors are swirling, which […]
