When we last entertained ourselves and White Sox fans on an off day, the White Sox were at .500 but still near the top of the AL Central standings. As we entertained ourselves and White Sox fan tonight on another off day, the Sox are still hovering around .500 and near the top of the AL Central standings.

So not much has changed in terms of the record and standings, but a lot has in the pitching rotation. We broke it all down with Jim Margalus from South Side Sox tonight.

Among the many topics we covered:

  • What the hell is going on with the Chris Sale saga? (yes, it’s now officially moved away from being a story and a situation. It’s officially a saga.)
  • When will Addison Reed close?
  • What assessments can we make about Robin Ventura’s managerial work through his first 32 games of managing on any level?
  • Why are Jake Peavy and Adam Dunn playing so well, and can they keep it up?
  • Is Alejandro De Aza the best leadoff hitter in baseball history? (At least, that’s how Kevin makes him sound. But we do talk about De Aza with Jim.)
  • What should the White Sox do with the still-struggling Dayan Viciedo and Brent Morel?

Also, we gratuitously mention Paul Konerko’s name at the end of the show, simply because it seemed ridiculous to go a full hour without at least mentioning the best and most consistent player on the team.

As he always does, Jim provides great insight. Make sure you follow him on Twitter and read his work daily at South Side Sox.
