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...

Danks takes on new role - elder statesman on White Sox

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) While John Danks has moved down in the Chicago White Sox rotation, he now finds himself as the elder statesman of the locker room. Paul Konerko's retirement means that Danks, who won't be 30 until April, has the most seniority as a member of the White Sox. He's entering his ninth year with the team since being acquired from Texas in 2006. ''It's weird,'' the...

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...

Some Phillies Business

Jordan Dank, the outfielder formerly of the White Sox and brother of lefty stater John Danks, has been claimed.  Not sure why, but then again, I'm not sure about most of Amaro's roster decisions. Danks is 28 years old and over parts of the last 3 seasons in Chicago he's hit .227.629 in 180 games.  His defense grades out subpar, and obviously his stick does too.  Seems like a wasted...

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...

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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...
