How Good of a Defender is Adam Eaton?

Even before all this recent activity, it was pretty apparent the White Sox had the makings of a good core. In fact, the existence of the core is probably in large part what drove all this recent activity.

What’s Next For The White Sox

Why the White Sox Will Drop 3 of 4 Against the Mariners

Evidenced by 13 runs scored by Seattle last night, the Sox are going to have a tough matchup with the Mariners this weekend. Adam Eaton is most likely out of the lineup again, meaning Leury Garcia will get another shot at CF. This means our leadoff hitter is a guy with a 160-point difference in On Base Percentage(OBP), which already doesn’t bode well. Pair that with Abreu, Ramirez...
