What’s Next For The White Sox

As the White Sox find themselves 10.5 back of the Division lead and 8.5 back in the Wild Card race, is it too early to assume that the season is over?

They added Adam Eaton from Arizona, inked up their ace Chris Sale, and added a big bat from Cuba...

White Sox beat Mariners after putting Adam Eaton on DL

Timing is everything, and for the White Sox, losing Adam Eaton couldn’t have come at a worse time. The Sox have scored seven runs over their last five games, and while Jose Abreu is the driving force, it’s Eaton’s energetic style and, more importantly, production in the leadoff spot that makes the Sox’ lineup go — when it goes. But Eaton won’t be around to do that for...

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...
