Video: White Sox’s Adam Eaton makes opening bid for catch of the year

It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of MLB’s opening week and make grand declarations that completely lack perspective. But the diving catch Adam Eaton made in Thursday’s game between the White Sox and Royals has a damn good chance of being viewed as the best catch of the 2015 season.

The Chicago White Sox were very active during the offseason. There are some that feel that they aren’t done yet.

Adam Eaton Responds to ‘Selfish’ Rumors, Says ‘I Need to Be a Little Bit Cockier’

There’s a fine line between being confident and being cocky. Adam Eaton might cross that line from time to time. An anonymous Diamondbacks player told Arizona Sports 620 shortly after Eaton was traded to the White Sox on Dec. 10 that losing the outfielder was “addition by subtraction” and that the 25-year-old was a “selfish me-me type player.” The news stunned Eaton. ...

Recently traded Adam Eaton anonymously bashed as 'selfish'

Just 12 months ago, Adam Eaton was a top five prospect in the Diamondbacks organization, and he looked like he would be a long-term solution for the club in center field. After an injury-plagued 2013, Eaton was traded to the White Sox as part of a three-team trade that netted the Diamondbacks Mark Trumbo.
