Appreciating Nate Jones while he’s still ours

The White Sox loudly announced to the world that they were rebuilding this winter by shipping out their two best players on consecutive days. And then stopped. Completely.

White Sox pitchers and tunneling

In our continuing series of digesting Jeff Long, Jonathan Judge and Harry Pavlidis’ landmark research into new frontiers of pitching analysis and lazily parroting it from a White Sox perspective, comes now a look into tunneling. To their credit, tunneling might be an even more difficult concept to quickly synopsize than the information involved in […]

This feels realer than the countless other times. The long-pondered White Sox rebuild rumors have more meat to them because the franchise-altering move to trade Chris Sale is being put at the forefront of reports, and the long-pondered Sale trade has more meat to it because it’s staked into these rebuild talks rather than some […]

The best fire sale of all-time

The White Sox were suddenly and shockingly a topic du jour of the baseball world Monday, less than a week after their counterparts to the north had captured a momentous World Series title in thrilling fashion. However the attention is for an entirely ignonimous honor, which could probably discerned from the opening barbs of Joel […]
