Cubs vs White Sox! Which Team Has the Better Rotation?

Which Chicago club has the better pitching rotation? The Cubs or the White Sox? Both clubs have a lot in common as they both finished with 73-89 records last season, both had lacking rotations with a few bright spots and both teams made big game changing splashes during the off-season. And both clubs will be entering 2015 with a completely different outlook than each had a year...

Chicago White Sox: bullpen set to destroy 2015 season

The Chicago White Sox have reloaded rather than rebuilt their team this off-season, which has put them in a position to make a strong playoff push for 2015. On paper, they have strengthened their former weaknesses at starting pitching, closer, and left field. Jeff Samardzija provides them with that illusive number two starter that they have struggled finding to pair up with their...

Armed with an MVP-level slugger and one of the best pitchers alive, the White Sox are very quietly shaping up as a team that could soon join the rest of the crowd vying for AL Central supremacy.

White Sox Select Carlos Rodon With the Third Pick

Sox fans have waited for this day ever since last summer, as today’s first round of the MLB First-Year Player Draft is one of the few plus sides to what was an awful 2013 season. Tonight, the Sox looked like they certainly turned a negative into a positive, as Rick Hahn and company selected highly-touted left-handed pitcher Carlos Rodon out of North Carolina State with the third...

Danish, Montas Asserting Themselves As Top Prospect Arms

While you’re already familiar with Chris Sale, Jose Quintana and even Erik Johnson –  youngsters sure to figure into the White Sox’ rotation of the future, the organization has lacked additional prospects that show promise of joining those ranks.

Chicago White Sox Top 10 Prospects

The Chicago White Sox have a solid farm system. Abreu has excellent power, but may not generate enough additional value to justify his huge contract. Johnson, Davidson, Anderson, and Semien should become quality Major League players. Hawkins has tons of potential, but his stats over the last few years make it difficult to determine his value. The rest of the players on this list...

Sox Take Three of Four from Rays in Impressive Fashion

Coming into the four-game series against Tampa Bay with question marks Erik Johnson and Andre Rienzo slated to pitch, a split seemed like a best case scenario. Factor in that Johnson would get demoted to AAA after Friday’s start and a 29-year-old minor league lifer would be called up to oppose David Price on Sunday, and even that seemed like a pipe dream. However, behind some Friday...

Chicago White Sox: Solving the Felipe Paulino problem

The White Sox have a record of 13-13 and they’ve gotten a hot start from Jose Abreu, who has set the MLB record for most HRs and RBIs in April as a rookie. The question mark since the start of the season has been the pitching. To me, the problem has been offseason acquisition Felipe Paulino. Paulino has been on the DL since April 19 but before then, he was getting hammered by his...
