Why the Chicago White Sox shouldn’t rush Carson Fulmer

This week the Chicago White Sox invited 20 minor league players to spring training, some of those fighting for actual spots on the 40, or even 25-man roster. One big name getting an invite was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2015 draft by the South Siders, Carson Fulmer. The Vanderbilt product impressed throughout the postseason tournament in 2015 – his team eventually losing in...

End of Year Thoughts

As of today: It is 98 days til baseball season opens and 102 days til The Cell opens One thing that has frustrated me is the pitching talk and who everyone would trade and all. The duo of Chris Sale and Jose Quintana are amazing as a 1, 2 punch. I am tired of all the trade John Danks talk, because of his pay packet, he wont be traded so you just need to deal with it. I do think John...

What’s up with Jeff Samardzija?

The free agent signing season should kick into gear soon, shortly after the results of Friday’s qualifying-offer acceptance deadline determine which free agents require draft pick compensation. The starting pitcher market will be particularly intriguing to monitor, with a healthy supply/demand situation from the players’ perspective further enhanced by the Cards’ loss of Lance...

9/20 Recap: Francona’s 250th Indians Win Features 5 Pitchers, No Bunts

 Player of the Game Lonnie Chisenhall continued his solid second half today with a two run home run off John Danks in the second inning that gave the Indians the lead. He later knocked in Yan Gomes a second time with a double in the sixth. While he has largely been kept out of games against left handed pitchers, this doesn’t really make baseball sense as he is now batting .259...

Ball Played: Indians lose series as Red Sox show off power

The Cleveland Indians could not have asked for a better setup to win on Wednesday unless John Danks himself was the opposing starting pitcher. Still, right-handed starter Joe Kelly was a close replica as he entered the game with a 5.69 ERA for the Boston Red Sox, and he had failed to finish even a paltry six innings in 12 of his 18 starts. The Indians also welcomed Jason Kipnis and...

Series Preview: Angels vs. White Sox vs. Panacea

We all know the Angels have been dreadful on the road in the second half, so that means coming home from their devastating road trip will cure everything that ails them, right? I mean, they kind of need it to be because they don’t have anything else at their disposal to serve as a panacea. Just being at home will awaken the bats, boost the rotation and stabilize the bullpen. That’s...

Cardinals are first to 60 wins

What a game last night. On Wednesday night the Cardinals came back in dramatic fashion to take home their 60th win of the season. Yadier Molina poked a stand-up triple (No, that is not a typo) down the right field line that plated three runs leading St. Louis to a 3-2 victory over the White Sox. This team continues to amaze me. Win No. 60 was not the smoothest, though. Up until Molina’s...
