Chicago White Sox 2015 Starting Pitching Preview

Going into the offseason, general manager Rick Hahn had a checklist. On the top of that list was a right-handed starting pitcher. In December, the second year GM landed his target in former Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija. Samardzija was a good addition, as they can slide him in the middle of two lefties; Cy Young candidate Chris Sale and the highly underrated hurler, Jose Quintana...

Do the White Sox Have Enough Starting Pitching to Contend?

Is the current Chicago White Sox rotation enough to contend in the AL Central or better yet, for a World Series? The rotation consists of Chris Sale, Jeff Samardizija, Jose Quintanna, John Danks and Hector Noesi. The front three are very strong, but the back end consists of innings eaters, including one making 15 million a season to do so in Danks. This is a vast improvement over...

Party time, Kansas City style! Royals in postseason for first time since '85

CHICAGO -- Let the party begin, Royals fans! The Royals, once a late-night punch line for comics on national TV, are going to the postseason for the first time since 1985, thus ending the longest playoff-absence of any major professional team in North America. The Royals did this with a 3-1 triumph over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night behind strong starting pitching from Jeremy...

One win is all the Royals need for a seat at the postseason table

When the Kansas City Royals won the 1985 World Series, it marked the peak achievement for a franchise that had experienced sustained success and regular postseason appearances over a nine-year period.

The Daily Grind: Chicago’s Guide to Handicapping Baseball (9/2/14)

We’re down to the last month of the regular season. It seems almost every year a team gets hot around this time of year to propel them into the playoffs. On the flip side, a team usually tanks as well. For me, a key to a profitable September in MLB is identifying those teams before the odds makers do. With expanded rosters in play, it creates more unknown and increases the probability...

White Sox-Twins Preview

Fighting through another disappointing season, the Chicago White Sox have had a bit of a fire sale lately while shipping veterans to contenders and clearing some payroll. There have been some bright spots such as the improvement of Hector Noesi, who takes the mound Tuesday night in the opener of a two-game road series with the last-place Minnesota Twins. The White Sox (62-75) had...

The Daily Grind: 4-0 $weep yesterday (8/21/14)

We swept the card yesterday at the Daily Grind, going a perfect 4-0.  Let’s take a look at a quick recap. Edwin Jackson got shelled again. The over was a winner by the 4th inning.  I’m not sure how he gets another start in a Cubs uniform.  Baltimore got to Hector Noesi in the 4th inning and held on to beat the White Sox 4-3.  Our 2 play of the days were easy wins.  The Angels...

The Daily Grind: Chicago’s Guide to Handicapping MLB ( 8/20/14)

What a fiasco last night at Wrigley Field.  The grounds crew had some problems with the tarp, which in turn led to the game being called final after 4.5 innings.  This caused our under play to be voided and our Giants play to lose.  Tough loss to swallow on the north side last night.  On the south side, Baltimore finally got to Quintana in the 6th and again the Sox only scored...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Aug 15

Yesterday’s late-game lineup was constructed from an extremely small set of six games. It scored 124.50 points and finished in the 82nd percentile of all Moonshot entries. Originally I thought it was going to be a big day as Adam LaRoche, Bryce Harper, and Jhonny Peralta all homered in their first at-bats, but after combining for 48 points in those three at-bats the trio contributed...

White Sox Head to Seattle to Kick Off West Coat Trip

The White Sox hit the road for a six game west coast trip after a very disappointing 2-4 homestand. The trip starts with a four game series in Seattle against the Mariners.  The Sox are now back to five games below .500 at 55-60, in fourth place in the AL Central.  They are 26-32 on the road but were 5-2 on their last road trip, so that was encouraging. The Mariners come in at...

Last Place Rangers Take the Rubber Match As Offense Leaves Sale Hanging

On Sunday, the White Sox began a three-game series at home against the Major League-worst Texas Rangers. The series looked promising at first, as Rangers’ ace Yu Darvish would be on the bench for all three games after another strong outing on Saturday (7 IP, 4 H, 2 BB, 8 K). With Hector Noesi, John Danks, and Chris Sale scheduled to pitch, the White Sox were in prime position to...

After Ugly Weekend Series, White Sox Set To Host Baseball’s Worst
