BP South Side 2016-17 Offseason Plan – Part 2 (The fun part)

The most profound difficulty with assessing anyone’s mock offseason plan is determining where they chose to place themselves in the divide between what the White Sox would ideally do, and what they will likely do. Especially for a franchise that has struggled as much as the Sox have, provided as much frustration with regards to their larger direction and apparent unwillingness...

One possible White Sox future playing out in Toronto

Watch how Blue Jays deal with a closing window Over the last couple years, I’ve kept the eyes on the Toronto Blue Jays. They’ve chosen the same general course as the White Sox, but they started it a year earlier, and they’ve been a lot more successful. In 2014, the Jays tried to accelerate a rebound from a 73-win season by loading up in a hurry. They pulled off the blockbuster...

1910: The Year Comiskey Park Débuted

Chicago welcomed an addition to its iconography on July 1, 1910. Comiskey Park, that structure serving as a second home for baseball fans on the Windy City’s south side, débuted in an era of new stadia—Fenway Park in 1912, Ebbets Field in 1913, Weeghman Park (later rechristened Wrigley Field) in 1914. It was about time that White Sox fans received a reward for their dedication...

White Sox Year in Review: Nate Jones

A White Sox bullpen that started 2016 looking like one of the best in the American League ended up in shambles by the midway point of the season. Injuries to Zach Putnam and Jake Petricka hurt the team’s depth, David Robertson looked more and more like a reliever headed toward serious decline, and a lack of internal depth options led to an over-reliance on journeymen like Matt...

pnoles' offseason plan

Let's try this one more time. The White Sox' payroll for 2016 is $73.15 million, including rookie contracts and arbitration cases and taking into account Jim's $11 million suggestion for Jose Abreu's salary. Arbitration-eligible (with projected salaries from MLBTR): (It is assumed that all non-tenders would be traded for whatever rather than simply let go, if possible.) Todd...

Why is the White Sox World Series forgotten?

Monday was a surreal day to be a follower of the White Sox. Come SoxFest time, a panel memorializing the 2005 World Series winners seems like a mandate, and if anything recent Sox history is challenged to provide anything as relevant as their now 11-year-old triumph. But on Monday, every paranoid suspicion about the Sox’ national irrelevance got enough validation to power us for...

ESPN uses tortured justification to exclude 2005 White Sox championship

It appears that much of the sports media world has decided to ignore the Chicago White Sox’ 2005 championship and 1959 AL pennant while discussing the Cubs’ appearance in the World Series. Tweets from ESPN’s @SportsCenter account and CBS’ @CBSThisMorning account both talked about a 71-year World Series drought for Chicago (nope), and ESPN then doubled down on it with a SportsCenter...

Three times the 2005 White Sox never happened on Monday

That didn’t take long After spending the weekend in Chicago watching the aftermath of the Cubs winning the National League pennant, I can see the benefits of both potential World Series outcomes. If the Indians top the Cubs, it’ll preserve the last bragging rights White Sox fans really have. But while a Cubs win would render the White Sox even closer to irrelevance, the Cubs...

How Much Will Jose Abreu Earn In 2017?

Three years ago, the White Sox signed Cuban slugger Jose Abreu to a franchise-record six-year, $68MM contract.  Abreu kicked off his MLB career with a monster 2014 campaign, winning Rookie of the Year and finishing fourth in the MVP voting.  His offensive production has declined steadily since then, but still remains above average.  Now, Abreu is presented with an important decision...

Adam LaRoche, son to throw out first pitch before Nats game

Adam LaRoche made a somewhat shocking decision to leave $13 million on the table and retire before the season when the Chicago White Sox gave him a hard time about his son hanging out in the clubhouse. LaRoche’s former team, the Washington Nationals, never had a problem with Drake being around. In fact, the Nats are ready to welcome Adam and Drake back for a ceremonial first pitch...

Replacing White Sox hero Robin Ventura will be tough, but Rick Renteria deserves the shot

Rick Renteria is reportedly going to be the next manager of the Chicago White Sox, replacing Robin Ventura. Ventura is one of the most recognizable former White Sox players of the modern era. There’s Frank Thomas, of course. But after Thomas, there’s a very small group that includes Ventura, who sits 13th on the all-time White Sox WAR leaderboard. Ventura’s playing career...

Ventura, a former member of the White Sox during his playing career, ascended...
