White Sox in Baltimore

**David Robertson is on leave due to the passing of his father-in-law, we send our love and prayers during this time. **Normally would you have the highlights from the game but I want to address an issue that I know is bothering all of us, John Danks. I like the guy and all but something needs to happen and it needs to happen now. We can’t keep putting him in with the way he is...

White Sox 7, Orioles 1: Bloops, a blast and a blowout

The big showdown coming into Sunday had us wondering if Chris Sale‘s ramped down approach again would work against a powerful Baltimore offense. Instead the White Sox offense chasing off a typically wild Ubaldo Jimenez took center stage. 1. The Sox torched Jimenez for a five-run fifth inning in which his control problems took center stage. After Dioner Navarro and Austin Jackson...

White Sox reinstate David Robertson, option Tommy Kahnle

The Chicago White Sox have made a few roster moves before the club’s game on Sunday. The organization has reinstated David Robertson from the bereavement list, and in turn optioned pitcher Tommy Kahnle to Triple-A Charlotte. Robertson was placed on the bereavement list, which forced him to miss three games, due to the death of his father-in-law. It was a move the club knew it would...

White Sox enjoy best-case April

Franchise-record 17 wins puts Sox at top of league after first month The bar for a successful April now looks modest in hindsight. Opening the season with a road-heavy slate and a stretch of 2015 playoff teams to close it out, a .500 record and a reasonable distance from the top of the division would've qualified as a success for the White Sox in April. After all, they hadn't had...

White Sox still hopeful struggling John Danks can turn things around

John Danks’ poor start to the season would stand out on any team in any year, but the left-hander’s struggles are particularly glaring as the Chicago White Sox have gotten off to a strong start despite taking a two-game losing streak into Saturday night’s game at Baltimore. In his four starts this season, Danks is 0-4 with a 7.25 earned run average. The White Sox had just eight...

Terrerobytes: White Sox catch up with injuries

Plus: Jose Abreu struggling for no good reason, John Danks gets one more start, and more A fortnight into the season, the White Sox managed to avoid the disabled list entirely. One week later, several players have managed to wear a path to it from the roster. To review: Sunday: Alex Avila goes on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring, with Kevan Smith coming up to Charlotte...

Reasons for the Chicago White Sox Surprising Start

The hot start to the 2016 season for the Chicago White Sox has fans and experts alike making comparisons to their 2005 club that won the World Series. Possibly the most equivalent characteristic between the two seasons thus far is that few saw the success beforehand. As someone who has written 5,600 words on the 2005 season, I am well aware that it’s a long season and I am not...

Wynn, World Series, and White Sox

Not since Shoeless Joe Jackson and seven others received lifetime bans from baseball had White Sox fans suffered a collective depression akin to the one on October 8, 1959. Chicago’s beloved team from the South Side lost the World Series to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the transplanted team from Brooklyn, in its second year of basking in the southern California sunshine. And so, the...

The Chicago White Sox Bullpen is Legit

The chatter in the Chicago area, at least on the South Side, has been the starting rotation of the White Sox. Chris Sale and company have given fans more than enough to applaud over, sitting three games up in the AL Central with the best record in the majors. But there’s more to this fairy tale than the Cy Young contender. The White Sox bullpen has been phenomenal, combining for...

So far, Chicago is baseball’s epicenter in 2016

The Major League Baseball season is closing out its first month of the 2016 season this weekend, and while the first 30 days of the season tell very little of what the big picture will be once it is fully painted, it does provide a backdrop for early season predictions. Entering the year, fans of the two respective clubs in the city of Chicago were receiving very different pieces...

Bear or Bull: Jose Abreu

El Grande Dolor. The Cuban Barry Bonds. Oso or Yogi. All of these are phrases and nicknames that have been used to describe Chicago White Sox slugger Jose Abreu in recent years. I'm not really sure where those last couple of ones came from, but they're listed under his profile at baseball-reference, so we'll roll with it. Side note: can those profiles be edited by the public á la...

The White Sox Have Gotten the Start They Needed

The White Sox beat the Blue Jays last night by a score of 10-1 (box). Comprehensive victory. Chris Sale won his fifth game, going a ho-hum 8.0 innings versus a lefty-destroying lineup in a hitter’s park. Southside hitters compiled 15 hits. They won on Monday in the first game of the series and five of the six games before that, too, and today they go for the sweep at the Rogers...

Improved defense has White Sox perched at top of American League

One of baseball’s biggest disappointments in 2015 was the Chicago White Sox, who went into the season with high expectations after signing outfielder Melky Cabrera, first baseman Adam LaRoche, and closer David Robertson in free agency. Things didn’t go according to plans – the Sox scuffled to a 76-86 record, just three games better than the record they posted in 2014. This...

Top Prospects that Never Were: Scott Ruffcorn, Chicago White Sox

Throwing strikes—it’s not for everybody. For Scott Ruffcorn, it was relatively impossible. At the major league level, anyway. Drafted 25th overall by the White Sox in 1991, it wasn’t as though Ruffcorn was starved for chances as he attempted to make a career in the big leagues. There was also a genuine level of hype surrounding him, something he’d never live up to. For three...
