Will the Chicago White Sox add a new face in time for the New York Yankees series?

What a difference a week makes for the Chicago White Sox. Less than seven days ago, I posted the last in what seemed to be a series of “which team is coming to get Jeff Samardzija today?” articles. Then, suddenly and miraculously, the White Sox bats catch fire. They sweep a four-game series from the Cleveland Indians. They immediately fly into Benton and decisively grab three...

Although the season is already over 90 games old, there is still plenty of time for teams under...

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...
