Axelrod's Grip on a Stable Future is Slipping Quickly

With as bad as the White Sox 2013 season is going, there have been more bright spots than you'd expect. What's up, starting rotation? After a very consistent and impressive under-the-radar minor league career, Robin Ventura, Don Cooper & co. figured it was time to give Dylan Axelrod a chance at a regular big league job. And for a while, Dylan was impressing us...

An Optimistic View on Axelrod, Because Why Not?

Dylan Axelrod is a name that seems to bring a negative reaction out of White Sox fans. Not a reaction of the angry variety, but that kind of “blah” variety when your mom made you eat your vegetables as a kid. Over the past few weeks, it seems as if Sox fans have made it pretty clear that they prefer Hector Santiago over Dylan Axelrod when it comes to that last rotation spot...

Axelrod's reward for strong start: a demotion

Dylan Axelrod had a dominant outing against the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday in the Chicago White Sox's 8-1 win, and then he found himself packing his bags for Class AA Birmingham.

Dylan Axelrod & The Chicago White Sox Couldn't Tame The Detroit Tigers

The Chicago White Sox lost to the Tigers 3-1, the White Sox were looking to try and game some ground on the Tigers for second place in the A.L. central.

Can the White Sox expect anything out of Dylan Axelrod?

There isn’t a ton of reason to be optimistic about either Chicago baseball team this MLB season. The Cubs figure to be bad, and the White Sox only marginally better. But there is an interesting comeback story possibly brewing on the White Sox pitching staff. For a guy to play for the lowly Windy City Thunderbolts, who play in suburban Crestwood, IL, the heart of White Sox fan...
