2016 Fantasy Baseball: Chicago White Sox Team Preview

2015 Quick Overview The Chicago White Sox have perpetually been in the middle of the pack since they won the World Series in 2005. Last year, they finished with a lackluster 76-86 record despite some aggressive moves made in the offseason. They remain a franchise that isn’t sure whether it’s coming or going but seems allergic to a rebuilding phase. Yet, they never seem to add...

The End of the Terrible Number-Two Hitter

If you’ve recently spent time with other humans, it’s likely that you noticed that they tend to be overconfident about how well they understand the world around them. Think of all of the people you know who have tried to weasel their way out of admitting they were wrong even when presented with strong evidence that they had misinterpreted a situation. Humans are bold and unapologetic...

2016 Chicago White Sox ZiPS Projections

Dan Szymborski released his annual ZiPS Projections for the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday and with it he is predicting an 81-81 record for the south siders. While this would be a five win improvement from last year, a .500 record would have kept the White Sox in fourth in the AL Central division and five games away from a wildcard in the American League.

Chicago White Sox: Why the Sox Should Sign Yoenis Cespedes

After acquiring Todd Frazier from the Cincinnati Reds a few weeks back, it appears that the Chicago White Sox are looking to compete in 2016. That won’t happen unless they acquire another big bat. While Frazier is a very nice pickup and a definite upgrade at the hot corner, most experts see Frazier as a five or six-hole hitter rather than a three-hole or cleanup hitter. So the...

Avisail Garcia’s Uncomfortable Situation

Look at the rumors for the White Sox. They concern a certain part of the team. Though the club is ostensibly starting Melky Cabrera, Adam Eaton, and Avisail Garcia in the outfield, they’re supposedly looking for another outfielder now. Given their respective projections, that makes things particularly awkward for Avisail Garcia. That’s not really the only thing that’s unsettling...

Addressing the White Sox’ Defensive Problem

Simplicity can be a good goal to have, but often the real world won’t allow it. Life creates uncertainty and complexity and this can be a problem when attempting to determine the proper path to take. For example, should I put down the computer right now and find out what my son is repeatedly slamming into the wall, or should I try to finish this thought? The answer, in this case...

Offseason Wish List: Chicago White Sox

Last offseason, the Chicago White Sox were labeled “winners” as they had brought in many impact pieces like David Robertson, Melky Cabrera and Adam LaRoche through free agency and traded for right-handed starter Jeff Samardzija to bolster the rotation. It quickly became apparent that general manager Rick Hahn had whiffed though, as only Robertson provided […]

Chicago White Sox: who’s in and who’s out for 2016

Just like the 2015 season brought in a wave of new faces and names into this lineup, 2016 should also bring a significant amount of personnel change. Once again, the Chicago White Sox front office will look to “retool” this team in their bid for a quick turnaround. Even though they have suffered from the underperforming acquisitions of last offseason, the Sox could make good...

He’s given his all: The Story of Jeremy Guthrie in Kansas City

  He’s a great teammate, a great person, and he’s had his best days in Kansas City. Here’s a look at Jeremy Guthrie’s time in Kansas City. Jonathan Sanchez was awful. Not at all what the Royals were looking for when they traded Melky Cabrera to San Francisco for the veteran lefty. Sanchez was 1-6 with a 7.76 ERA for the Royals in 12 starts. Melky Cabrera, meanwhile, had...

The White Sox Are Pushing For October

The White Sox current roster, much of which was assembled over this past offseason, has largely underperformed as a group in 2015. Additions Melky Cabrera and Adam LaRoche have failed to hit as expected. Avisail Garcia has not taken the leap forward many expected. Jeff Samardzija was pitching to the tune of a 4.56 ERA at the end of June, and Jose Abreu has regressed as has Adam...
