Chicago White Sox should consider hiring rainmaker after drizzly win

Chicago White Sox GM Rick Hahn might have been on the phone after midnight last night, waking up the elders of the Sioux Nation in an attempt to hire a rainmaker to add to the Sox’ coaching staff. Indeed, perhaps the Sox don’t need to think about acquiring the traditional mid-season miracle-working veteran (see 2012 candidate Kevin Youkilis). Instead, perhaps the missing piece...

The Most Unlikely Home Run

It seems like a simple question to ask. Which recent home run was the least likely? You could flippantly answer — the one Erick Aybar hit this year, or the one Melky Cabrera hit this year — and because they’ve got the lowest isolated slugging percentages with at least one homer hit, you would be […]

Chicago White Sox GM seeks to field new team (satire)

It came to me in a dream… The Scene: An ominously quiet visitors’ locker room in the bowels of the Pittsburgh Pirates‘ PNC Park, following yet another Chicago White Sox loss on Tuesday night. A door creaks open. The downcast eyes of defeated players see only a man’s khaki-ed legs and tasteful loafers walk slowly into the center of the room. He speaks. “Gentlemen. Two summers...

Chicago White Sox sign 26 of last week’s MLB Draft picks

The Chicago White Sox got to work quickly after the 2015 MLB Draft and have signed 26 of their 38 picks. Conspicuous by his absence in the signed draft group is first round pick RHP Carson Fulmer. This not because of hard-headed representation (at least not yet), but instead because of Fulmer’s Vanderbilt Commodores being contenders in the College World Series. The Sox weren...

Buy/Sell Week 10: (Un)Free Garcia!

Buy: Avisail Garcia How Garcia’s teammate, Melky Cabrera, is owned in a greater percent of ESPN leagues is something I cannot understand. Though his BABIP is at .369 indicating some luck, there are plenty of positive signs to believe he’s taken steps forward and is fantasy relevant. What immediately jumps to eye is the increased line drive percentage, currently at 27%, 16th-best...

Chicago White Sox: is that all you’re willing to spend?

In the movie “Rushmore,” Bill Murray plays Herman Blume, a desperately lonely steel tycoon who competes with the eccentrically underwhelming student Max Fisher (Jason Schwartzman) for the affection of first grade teacher Miss Cross (Olivia Williams). The two go to ridiculous lengths to win the heart of a woman they barely know, but cannot possibly live without. Ultimately...
