Sox Find New Outfielder

Apparently the Sox have been looking for a new outfielder to increase roster flexibility, and they may have found their man. Conor Gillaspie, the dynamic third basemen who is sporting a .309/.360/.451 slash line right now, plans on getting a few looks in the outfield the rest of the season.

Gillaspie in Two-Hole Makes Too Much Sense

It’s been since the 2005-2006 seasons when the White Sox have had the same player bat second in the order over 100 times in consecutive seasons, when Tadahito Iguchi accomplished that. Before Iguchi, a Sox player hadn’t done that since Luis Aparicio in 1969-1970 (although Joey Cora was on his way to accomplishing such if there was no strike in 1994). You can probably imagine...

With the White Sox trailing the Orioles 3-2 in the bottom of the seventh inning, Nick Markakis robbed Conor Gillaspie of what would have been a go-ahead two run homer. Not content with taking away Chicago’s chance at tying the game, Markakis capped off a five-run eighth inning for Baltimore with a two-run homer of his own to right field with a little more lift than Gillaspie’s fly out had.

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Real Offensive Value — Third Basemen, Part II

It’s funny, but the second group of fantasy third basemen is almost as distinguished as the first. This is how things often go in fantasy baseball. The question comes on how long to wait for normalcy to return. Sometimes it never does. The all-star break is closer to the 60 percent mark than the 50 percent mark, so hope for normalcy might not be warranted. Sometimes we have to...

White Sox First Half Review: The Good

The unofficial second half starts Friday for the White Sox so let’s take a look back and what went right for the Sox, pre-All Star break.
