Spring Training is little more than two months away. In recent weeks free agent signings and trades have hit a feverish pitch. With big names moving around teams like the White Sox, who were cellar dwellers last year, are now considered contenders for their division.

White Sox decline to tender Carroll, Snodgress

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago White Sox have declined to tender contracts for next season to right-handed pitcher Scott Carroll and left-hander Scott Snodgress. Carroll, 30, was 5-10 with a 4.80 ERA over 26 appearances (19 starts) last season, his first in the majors. He was designated for assignment on Nov. 25 to make room for first baseman Adam LaRoche on the 40-man roster. The 25...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, Sep 23

Yesterday my Pirates stack against Aaron Harang didn’t go as planned. A lone Andrew McCutchen homer was Pittsburgh’s offense, and that wasn’t enough to do anything meaningful for my squad. It was slim pickings on a short Monday so Danny Duffy performed to expectations, but I hoped for more out of Derek Holland. Overall my team scored 76.65 points, missing the century mark for...

Carrasco Cruises Through Pale Hose with Four-Hit Gem; Indians 2, White Sox 0

Whatever changes Carlos Carrasco made before returning to the starting rotation, they sure have worked. Carrasco pitched nothing short of a gem on Sunday afternoon, shutting out the Chicago White Sox for eight and two third innings and leading the Indians to a 2-0 victory at Progressive Field. While it has been said before, this game is Carrasco’s best since returning to the rotation...

The Daily Grind: Tips and Strategy for Winning Long Term (8/23/14)

Yesterday was a tough day on the diamond.  We went 2-3 for -1.1 units on the day.  The Cubs game went as planned, but I thought it would be the other team swinging the bats a little bit.  The White Sox took an early lead, only to lose it to the Yankees in the 6th inning.  They had 2nd and 3rd, nobody out, after they just tied it.  That was our chance for the win, but Danks dug...

Investigating The Worst Strike Zone of 2014

Let’s talk for a second about Scott Carroll, a generally unknown right-handed 29-year-old rookie pitcher for the White Sox, although this isn’t really going to be about Scott Carroll. He doesn’t throw all that hard, topping out at around 91 mph. He doesn’t get a lot of strikeouts, but he also doesn’t limit walks particularly well, leading to the […]
