Chicago White Sox trade rumors: Outfield edition

Being a Chicago baseball fan hasn’t been easy the past couple years. The Chi-Sox and Cubs both finished in the bottom five in wins last season. Yet Chicago’s fan base stands strong and for a good reason: Both organization have a lot of young talent. Unlike the Cubs, a good portion of the White Sox’s talent is already in the Majors as opposed to the Minor League. For example...

White Sox’ Future of Left Field Remains Foggy

Heading into 2014, the Chicago White Sox outfield situation was a bit foggy out in left. While we figured to see youngsters Adam Eaton and Avisail Garcia in center and right respectively, the plan in left field was to use a platoon system with Alejandro De Aza and Dayan Viciedo with the hope that the two could combine to produce like a solid everyday player. Things changed with the...

2 Roster Moves I Actually Made, Week 4

Adam dropped De Aza this past week. Would you have cut bait, too? (Photo: Charles Rex Arbogast, AP) We have about a month’s worth of data now, which is still not a huge sample by any stretch, but I’m deeming it enough for one of two things: Start putting a bit more confidence behind your smack talk if your team is performing well (at least that’s my plan) Unfortunately,...

Adam Dunn Moving To The Outfield?

Chicago White Sox Baseball — The Chicago White Sox have to fill the void created from Avisail Garcia’s season ending surgery. Jordan Danks was recalled, and sure there is Alejandro De Aza and Dayan Viciedo, but maybe it’s time to think outside the box. Adam Dunn moving to the outfield could be the answer to help keep the White Sox on track. Granted Dunn has not played outfield...

De Aza Helps to Make Home Opener Smooth SALE-ing ☆

Before the game, the Sox played Paul Konerko’s speech to the fans from the last game of the 2013 regular season on the jumbotron, where he said “I don’t know if I’ll be back, but I promise we’ll be better.” If today’s game is any indication, this edition of the White Sox will at the very least be more fun to watch. Behind 7.1 stellar innings from ace Chris Sale, the...

With big contracts come big expectations, and Ricky Nolasco is no exception. Nolasco signed a four-year, $49 million deal with Minnesota this past winter, the biggest contract ever given to a free agent in Twins history. He was one of multiple pieces brought in with the hope of solidifying what had been a brutal starting rotation. It's only one game, but Nolasco's Twins debut...

Searching for Starters: AL Central

As much as we would all like our favorite clubs to employ multiple star sluggers and a handful of true aces, this is more of a fantasy than a realistic situation. I can’t even pull this off in fantasy ball, now that I think about it. In any case, filling roster weaknesses is both tricky and a necessity. The trick is simply to identify value where others do not; that is what I will...

Player Profile #119: Alejandro De Aza | OF | CHW

Alejandro De Aza followed up a solid rookie season with an even better 2013 fantasy campaign. Sure, his stolen bases dropped from 26 to 20 and batting average fell from .281 to .264, but he increased his HR (9 to 17), R (81 to 84), and RBI (50 to 62) totals. Make no mistake, De Aza mattered in all five categories in 2013 although he didn’t really excel in one in particular. What...

Alejandro De Aza has been one of the focal points of White Sox fan criticism on social media and talk radio over the last seven months. He struck out too much for his critics in 2013. His defense wasn’t up to par, either. And the base running was at times abhorrent. Even White Sox general manager Rick Hahn used the word frustration at the GM meetings in Orlando on Wednesday to...
