PLAYERS: Adam Dunn
TEAMS: Chicago White Sox
You could double Adam Dunn‘s batting average this season, and he still wouldn’t come close to hitting .400. That didn’t stop the slugger from sounding off on players attempting to reach that plateau, though. Dunn, who enters Saturday hitting .128, seems to think that the reporting of batting averages has the potential to impact players mentally. “I’m telling you, if people didn’t post people’s batting averages on the scoreboard or in the media, people would be batting .400,” Dunn told MLB.com. “I’m serious. I believe that. You look at spring training, and I know it’s a small sample, but you’ve got guys hitting .500 in 50-60 at-bats. They know they’re hitting good, but they don’t know what they’re hitting.” It’s understandable that Dunn harbors some ill will toward the statistical category. The 33-year-old hit .204 last season and .159 the year before. His career average sits at .238, and he has never eclipsed the .270 mark. Dunn isn’t the only one who discourages the report

Down on the Farm Report: Bueller? ... Bueller?

It’s been a long time since the White Sox have had a scheduled off day (plenty of rained out days though), which means it’s been a while since we’ve posted a “Down On the Farm” report here on GSB! Unfortunately, that might be a good thing, as a lot of the team’s top prospects have had rough starts to the season. AAA Charlotte Knights As a team, the Knights...

The Will To…

I want to direct your attention to an interview between the MLB Network guys and “Hawk” Harrelson, the announcer for the Chicago White Sox.  First off, I realize that Hawk is an acquired taste and I want to apologize to my White Sox fan friends for saying this, but Hawk makes me want to break things and hurt small furry creatures.  Anyway, the interview… The KEY point here...

Not So Sweet Home Chicago For Cubs And White Sox

What once was a tale of two cities is now just one long book of struggle. Last season the Chicago Cubs were out of contention early, while the Chicago White Sox held down first place for a period of time until the wheels fell off and the playoffs were out of reach, notice the result, neither had a playoff appearance, not something fans are content about. Coming into the 2013 season...

A Tale of Two Sluggers

Something interesting came up today as Anthony Rizzo hit another two homers to become the Cubs’ all-time leader in homers in April by a left-handed batter.  Yeah, they have small-sample meaningless stats for everything!  But all those home runs are cool despite his crap average.  At the conclusion of the game, Rizzo had a slash line of .200/.277/.506, buoyed by the fact that...
