De Aza Helps to Make Home Opener Smooth SALE-ing ☆

Before the game, the Sox played Paul Konerko’s speech to the fans from the last game of the 2013 regular season on the jumbotron, where he said “I don’t know if I’ll be back, but I promise we’ll be better.” If today’s game is any indication, this edition of the White Sox will at the very least be more fun to watch. Behind 7.1 stellar innings from ace Chris Sale, the...

De Aza's frustrating play won't force Hahn's hand

Alejandro De Aza has been one of the focal points of White Sox fan criticism on social media and talk radio over the last seven months. He struck out too much for his critics in 2013. His defense wasn’t up to par, either. And the base running was at times abhorrent. Even White Sox general manager Rick Hahn used the word frustration at the GM meetings in Orlando on Wednesday to...

Player Profile #54: Alejandro De Aza | OF | CHW

Alejandro De Aza was my unanimous sleeper target last year. In every mock draft I did, every actual team I drafted, and every “your fantasy time can’t exist without these players” piece I wrote, De Aza was there.He certainly didn’t disappoint. For the price of a 200-something pick, De Aza delivered top-100 numbers. Given his role as a speed-first leadoff hitter, his nine...

Where did Alejandro De Aza come from?

The White Sox' 2012 season has to be considered a surprise. Comebacks by Dunn and Rios (from the dead), a big season by Konerko and Pierzynski and the emergence of Viciendo have been big factors as has the pitching of Peavy and Sale. But perhaps the biggest surprise has been from the guy setting the table at the top of the lineup, Alejandro De Aza. If you are anything like this...

The Alejandro De Aza Paradox

He sports a .310 batting average, 26 RBI’s, 13 SB’s and an absurd 43 runs. The only problem is that nobody outside of Chicago – or those who have him on their fantasy teams – have any idea...

2012 Fantasy Baseball Sleeper: Alejandro De Aza

Author: Luke Gloeckner www.mrcheatsheet.comLeading off for the White Sox this year will be the young Alejandro De Aza. Last year, he had 13 HR, 34 SB and hit .324 between AAA and the majors. If he could bring those numbers into a full year of being a major league leadoff hitter then, wow, watch out.My first concern with him is whether than ridiculous batting average will stick around...
