There are a lot of bad contracts in MLB right now. OK, there are ALWAYS a lot of bad contracts, but it seems like there is an inordinate amount this offseason. All these teams will talk about trying to find a way to dump their bad contracts, but nobody ever really seems to follow through on that.

End of season post-mortem: Chicago White Sox

For a team fighting to avoid finishing last in their division and on their way to their third losing season in the last four years, things are actually looking up for the White Sox. 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. Preseason...

Chris Sale and John Danks Give Adam Dunn Awesome Gift

The White Sox dealt DH Adam Dunn to the Oakland A’s in a hope to give Dunn one last chance at a World Series ring. Dunn and the A’s are in town to play the White Sox this week and Chris Sale and John Danks wanted to make sure Dunn knew he was greatly appreciated in the White Sox clubhouse. Dunn underachieved big time in Chicago but never had a negative attitude even though the...

The Daily Grind: Chicago’s Guide to Handicapping Baseball (9/3/14)

I felt really good about yesterday’s card and then the games happened. 2 unearned runs cost us the under in the Cubs game and the usually reliable Indians bullpen blew a late lead against Detroit. As expected, the Pittsburgh and St. Louis game went over the total for our lone win. Week 4 Breakdown Cubs 0-1 -1.1 White Sox 0-0 Play of the Day 1-1 -.4 Overall 1-2 -1.5 units Chicago...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Sep 3

Yesterday was a disappointing day. Wade Miley did exactly as I expected, but my team was tanked from the start by Shane Greene’s implosion against the Red Sox. Greene had been extremely consistent, but Boston’s big name bats chose that to to erupt. My three hidden players were Joe Panik (14.00 points), Luis Valbuena (14.00 points), and Greene (-6.00 points). Tuesday’s Official...

The Daily Grind: Night Card (8/28/14)

Well the Chicago Cubs were hammered by the Cincinnati Reds, so it’s time to move on to the night card. Tread carefully, because right now I’m in full fade mode.  The aces I’m playing are getting shelled and the chuckers I’m fading are throwing gems. Chicago White Sox (J. Danks) vs Cleveland Indians (C. Carrasco) John Danks has been struggling all year, but has really hit...

What’s Next For The White Sox

As the White Sox find themselves 10.5 back of the Division lead and 8.5 back in the Wild Card race, is it too early to assume that the season is over? Should the Sox already be planning for next season? Maybe so. The Sox had a good plan going into this season, and many were optimistic. They added Adam Eaton from Arizona, inked up their ace Chris Sale, and added a big bat from Cuba...

A loss tonight would effectively end the Yankees' quest for the 2014 AL East

We would be eight games behind with about 40 to go.We could also fall four games out of the wild card, and - more concerning - be behind three teams in the race.As horrible as 2013 was, this year's team could fall out of meaningful contention in the month of August. Last year, the Yankees toyed with hope until the last week of the season.Are we still thinking of trading prospects...

Danks’ Contract Bearable Until the Price is Right

Despite interest from the Marlins and Yankees (and possibly others), the White Sox were unable to unload lefty John Danks prior to Thursday’s non-waiver trade deadline. It seems most conceivable that neither team was willing to bite the bullet on the $28.5 million owed to Danks over the next two seasons, though his consistency and veteran presence do seem to be coveted. Although...

MLB players who still might be traded in August

The MLB non-waiver trade deadline was the busiest in recent history with David Price and Jon Lester, among others, calling new cities home for the stretch run. Is this an indication that there could very well be more activity around the trade market as teams start to really assess where they are?  Unlike the July 31st deadline, trades that are made in the month of August are based...

August Could be Very Benificial to the Cubs

The Chicago Cubs might be the team to watch in the month of August, but not for anything they do on the field. Let’s be honest, any chance of competing for a playoff spot disappeared a long time ago; probably before the season even began. I am not sure that even the most optimistic fan out there can realistically think that this team can still make a playoff push in 2014. That...
