Just because the name is White Sox Off Day doesn’t mean we always have to wait for off days to bring you in-depth, entertaining White Sox discussion.

We had our first “getaway day special” today, and UGod from South Side Sox was kind enough to give us an hour of his time and expertise talking all things White Sox.

Among the many topics we covered:

  • General impressions of the recently completed series against Baltimore.
  • Who should be hitting #2? And will Robin make a change soon?
  • How are Dunn and Rios looking in their attempts to rebound?
  • What went wrong with Gordon Beckham and is his major league career salvageable?
  • The resurgence of Jake Peavy as a top-of-the-rotation starting pitcher. (Suggested reading: this terrific piece of Peavy by Zach at Grab Some Bench.)
  • The future of Chris Sale, the importance of his makeup to his success, and why Keith Law will ultimately be proven wrong about him.
  • Can Paulie break Frank’s career record for home runs? Do we want him to?

It’s a terrific episode and we greatly appreciate Mark’s time, plus the callers who joined in with their perspective. Follow him on Twitter here: @SSS_UGod.
