Why Are The White Sox So Damn Slow!

What do Billy Hamilton, Jose Altuve, Dee Gordon and about 15 other players have in common? (MLB) They all have more stolen bases than the entire White Sox team does. That includes the Cubs’ own Anthony Rizzo who has nine stolen bases in 2015. The White Sox have seven. (ESPN) SEVEN!!!!!!! We are halfway through May and the Sox as a team have stolen seven bases. It gets worse though...

What's the deal with the White Sox 'stirring the drink' celebration and t-shirts?

The White Sox are winning baseball games and they're having fun doing it. The Sox, who are riding a six-game winning streak heading into Tuesday's game, have developed some kind of secret society that involves a "stirring" celebration and cool homemade t-shirts. Gordon Beckham was seen doing the drink stirring motion while celebrating a walk-off win over the Reds last week. Multiple...

Adam Eaton Starting to Come Around … ?

When Adam Eaton said earlier this season that his new five-year $23.5 million dollar contract was distracting him, White Sox fans couldn’t help but notice. After starting the first month of the season with a .192 AVG. with a .241 OBP, fans started to get that uneasy feeling awfully early. However, since the beginning of May Eaton’s numbers have gone up considerably and with them...

More Stats Show The White Sox Have The Worst Players In MLB

So, last week I wrote how the Chicago White Sox were the worst team in MLB and people got pissed off. Yes, I know in the article I said they didn’t have the worst record but having the worst record is different than being the worst team. Luckily for me, Jeff Sullivan of FanGraphs put together an excellent piece on Monday that proves my point. The Chicago White Sox have the worst...

Despite Unrest, Baseball Rolls Along in Baltimore

In the wake of unrest, it feels ridiculous, even a little wrong, to be sitting here writing about a game. In the age of social media, it has never been easier to access what’s going on around us—whether it be down the street, across the country, or on the other side of the world.

White Sox OF Eaton cracks joke about playing in empty stadium in Baltimore

Protests, riots and unrest in Baltimore forced the postponement of Monday and Tuesday's scheduled contests at Camden Yards between the Orioles and White Sox but on Wednesday the show will go on. At least the game will be played -- before an audience of the players, coaches and media, but no fans. Said White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton (with a quick response to those who said it was...

Routine Play Leads To Fight In White Sox Game

The White Sox and Royals added another chapter to their rivalry tonight as both benches cleared after a pretty routine play. It all starts when Adam Eaton hits a one hopper to Yordano Ventura (sounds pretty harmless) but then Ventura had some choice words for Eaton. I’m not a pro lip reader but this one is a no brainer.

Stolen Base Legend Vince Coleman Having Little to No Impact with White Sox

When the Chicago White Sox added Vince Coleman to the coaching staff as a baserunning instructor it seemed to be one more new piece in a season of high expectations. Coleman was a six-time National League stolen base leader and topped the 100-mark in his first three seasons in the Majors from 1985-87. He finished with 752 steals during his 13-year career.

With a core that consists of young, affordable talent like Chris Sale, Jose Abreu, and Adam Eaton, as well as veteran acquisitions in Melky Cabrera, David Robertson, Jeff Samardzija, and Adam LaRoche, the Southsiders appear to have a nice blend. It’s why multiple baseball “experts” predict the Sox to be...

White Sox Add Adam Eaton to Long-Term Plan

When the White Sox signed Adam Eaton to a five-year, $23.5 extension over the weekend, the move in and of itself, wasn’t huge news. It wasn’t huge money, and Eaton isn’t a huge player, literally or figuratively. But the move wasn’t just about Eaton, necessarily, rather it was part of a bigger plan. Take it […]
