Players dressed as White Sox play serious ball in Minnesota

The Chicago White Sox were scheduled to play the home team Minnesota Twins Tuesday evening, but it appeared that another team actually occupied the visitors’ dugout. Not that White Sox fans were complaining as the game went on, since this visiting team won, 6 – 2. After Monday’s humiliating 13 – 2 defeat at the hands of the AL Central’s second-place Twins, it seems that...

On Derek Norris’ Surprising Strength

Last year Derek Norris didn’t look much like the kind of catcher who was going to stick at the position for a long time. In 2014, among catchers with at least 700 innings behind the dish, Norris’ caught stealing percentage of 16.7 ranked ahead of only Colorado’s Wilin Rosario. It got so bad — apparently —  that Norris ceded the A’s everyday catcher role to backup Geovany...

Game 68: Pirates 3 White Sox 2

After playing out in front of the White Sox for most of this four-game series, the Pirates decided to finish the sweep with a different tactic: the late-game rally. They probably shouldn’t have needed a late-game rally in this one; they put runners on against Jeff Samardzija in the first, third, sixth, and seventh without scoring in those individual innings. They out-hit the White...

The Chicago White Sox Have The Most Pathetic Catchers In MLB

I can’t tell if the Chicago White Sox keep trotting out minor league catchers on the field for every one of their games because one thing is for sure; the crap that’s crouching behind home plate is pathetic and not is not MLB talent. The catching duo of no one’s favorite player Tyler Flowers and the catcher who throws like a girl Geovany Soto have taken the MLB by storm. A...

Where for art thou, future Chicago White Sox catcher?

Whether you’re a Chicago White Sox fan or not, one must recognize general manager Rick Hahn for his laudable job of re-rostering the team. And Hahn has spent some time developing the farm, too – something that for years hasn’t been a White Sox strong suit. The one position area I’d like Mr. Hahn to round out would be catcher. Unlike some of my fellow Sox fans, I don’t hate...

Career High Strikeouts in From Dallas Keuchel Lifts Astros Past White Sox

Dallas Keuchel was in control virtually from the beginning today, as he was able to keep the Chicago White Sox off balance for much of the night. Geovany Soto was able to reach on a lead-off single in the fourth and made it all the way to third base with two outs, but the White Sox couldn’t strike pay dirt. For the first five innings, the White Sox had three hits and seven strikeouts...

VIDEO: Geovany Soto Does Have The Yips, Well Kind Of

He’s denied it, but looking at the video have you noticed how Geovany Soto throws the ball back to the pitcher for the Chicago White Sox? It’s odd, as he goes down on both knees and then lunges forward toward the pitcher. It looks like it takes all of his force to throw the ball back 60 feet. Does he have the yips? Soto, who joined the White Sox this season, told the Chicago...

Geovany Soto: A Case For A Major League Deal

Geovany Soto. Photo Credit: Getty Images Geovany Soto is a 32-year-old catcher, who honestly has never been that great at the plate. It’s understandable that he hadn’t been signed until now. It’s late January and he’s not the most desirable player in the world. However, he deserved better than the contract he signed Thursday with the Chicago White Sox. Soto signed a minor...

The Texas Rangers have some holes to fill coming off one of their worst seasons in recent memory. Injuries were riddled across the lineup and the once potent Rangers offense became punch-less. While they will be getting some healthy bats back this year - Prince Fielder being the biggest one - they still need to add some depth. One player that may be on their radar is the return...
