South Side Morning 5: Jose Quintana Falls Off A Cliff

1. Jose Quintana’s performance in Wednesday’s 8-6 loss to the Diamondbacks is tough to figure out. His first three innings were perfect — zero baserunners, five strikeouts. He seemed well on his way to his second straight stellar outing, third straight quality start, and putting all of his early season struggles to bed for good. […]

Which White Sox Will Take His Talents to South Beach?

It’s not even June yet. The All-Star Game is scheduled for mid-July. And yet, I’m already pondering who will be the White Sox representative in Miami. Now that the All-Star Game doesn’t have an actual effect on games played in October, it’s much easier to have fun with the fact that each team must have […]

Checking in on White Sox trade targets

On the eve of the season, we posted a set of expectations for the players on the White Sox roster. Given the shape of the roster and the trades over the winter, it’s not surprising that our expectations for several of the players was that they’d get traded during the course of the year. While […]

South Side Morning 5: What to do About Yoan Moncada

1. White Sox affiliates saw their fair share of great prospect performances over the weekend. In Charlotte, both Reynaldo Lopez and Carson Fulmer made starts in which they impressed.

South Side Morning 5: It’s Not Gonna Be May

1. The White Sox optioned struggling Jacob May to Triple-A following Monday’s 7-1 loss to the Royals, a sad but not surprising conclusion to the outfielder’s tenure on the 25-man roster. May’s demotion became necessary as his playing time became more scarce. He had gone from April 23 to Monday without a start, and if he’s […]

South Side Morning 5: So This Is What A Rebuild Looks Like

1. The White Sox dropped 2 of 3 from the Indians over the weekend, going from the fourth inning of Wednesday’s loss to the Yankees to the first inning of Sunday’s win without scoring a run in the process.  The results themselves are difficult to get worked up about given the team’s current standing as […]

South Side Morning 5: How Did Miguel Gonzalez Do That?

1. Miguel Gonzalez’s efficiency in Tuesday’s 4-1 win over the Yankees — 8.1 innings, 4 hits, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts on just 88 pitches — showed what the White Sox can get when he’s at his best. Gonzalez is never going to blow away hitters or get them to chase his off-speed stuff with regularity, but his […]

Defining Success: The White Sox Roster

The White Sox are in a situation recent memory is unfamiliar with as they enter the 2017 season devoid of hopes for contention. Because of this, it would be foolish to judge the successes or failures of the team based solely on wins and losses, but instead look at individual growth of certain players, trade […]
