South Side Morning 5: Wasted opportunities

1. Right before the White Sox no-showed a phenomenally winnable game against a dreadful divisional rival in front of their home fans, Crain’s published the details of their rest of season ticket sales outlook. In sum, the White Sox have once again obliterated any sense of in-season momentum from their fanbase, and will be lucky to cling to the head start their pre-season sales...

Everything keeps coming back to Avisail Garcia

Every time Robin Ventura finds a way to diminish his role, circumstances force Garcia back into White Sox lineup Every time Robin Ventura tries to get away from starting Avisail Garcia, something forces him to bring him back into the mix. The first time, it was Garcia himself, which is always preferable. He brushed off an awful start to hit .472/.524/.778 over a 10-game stretch...

White Sox continue to struggle vs. Central rivals

The White Sox who dropped the Tuesday's series opener, 4-0, don't look like a playoff team. A 5-18 mark over their last 23 games against the American League Central reinforces that particular point.

Twins 4, White Sox 0: Dozier pummels lifeless Sox club

The White Sox just wrapped a trying but encouraging week. They braved the onslaught of two AL East playoff contenders, climbed back to .500 with a pair of series wins despite dealing with multiple key injuries, and set themselves up nicely for soft stretch in their schedule, which began with a Tuesday night’s hilarious starting mismatch of Jose Quintana vs. Kyle Gibson. Ah, well...

Schedule eases up for White Sox, who can’t ease up themselves

With Cleveland on a tear, White Sox must get back to bumslaying Baseball being a zero-sum game, somebody was going to be benefit from the White Sox following up a 23-10 start with a 10-26 stretch. That team is the Cleveland Indians. At the same time the Sox were winning 23 of 33, the Indians were in the process of losing two of three to the Twins to fall to .500. Now, with an 8...

Checking in on the White Sox top prospects

Tim Anderson has been a major leaguer for a little more than two weeks now, and while he’s gotten off to a promising start, his ascension thins out a minor league system that wasn’t all that impressive to begin with. That’s a silly thing to care about, in reality. The point of your minor league system is for players to do well enough to eventually reach the majors. If that...

The White Sox’ Hidden Catastrophe

I was reading through Jon Heyman’s latest Inside Baseball, and then I got to the White Sox section. Within, Heyman said something about Chris Sale, and though it wasn’t specifically about everything that’s going to follow in here, it at least works well enough for me to embed: Chris Sale’s pitches come from such an unusual angle, it seems to fool umpires. It looked like he...

Todd Frazier’s Batted Ball Problem

Todd Frazier hasn’t been exactly what the White Sox hoped when they traded a slew of prospects for him in the offseason. I mean, yeah, he’s got a share of the MLB home run lead with 21, but everything else has been out of whack. Despite those 21 home runs, Frazier’s actually barely been a league-average hitter, a .201 batting average being the key contributor to a pedestrian...

Did Zach Putnam “Deserve to Lose” with His Splitter?

Zach Putnam threw 20 pitches on Monday night, and 15 of them were splitters. Many were balls. The White Sox reliever walked all three batters he faced in the ninth inning of a tie game at Fenway Park. Dennis Eckersley, doing color on the Red Sox TV broadcast wasn’t impressed. In his opinion, Putnam “deserves to lose” because he was throwing so many splitters. Results aside...

Chicago White Sox: It’s time to start worrying…but for a different reason

It’s time to start worrying about the Chicago White Sox…but for a different reason. I’m not usually not the type to start panicking in mid-June, and I’m not. I’m not panicking about the team itself because again it’s mid-June and in the second wild card era, any team can get hot and squeak into the playoffs. The thing about the Chicago White Sox that is making me start...

Chicago White Sox: trouble with Robin Ventura

The Chicago White Sox started the season as one of the hottest teams baseball but have quickly plummeted in the American League Central Division while having the worst record since going 23-10. While the White Sox seemed as though they were playing on all cylinders with dynamite additions throughout their 23-10 run to first place, the whole team has struggled from top to bottom,...

Chicago White Sox: What to do with James Shields?

The Chicago White Sox started the 2016 season 23-10, an incredibly strong start allowing the over-achieving club to sit atop the AL Central and keep pace with the North Side Cubs. Although, after what started off as a disappointing series in Texas, then a disappointing roadtrip, then a disappointing month, and now a disappointing season, every move the Sox make is a response by the...
