White Sox Looking to Acquire Catcher Jason Castro?

It’s no secret that current White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers has underwhelmed during his time on the South Side. Flowers, the top prospect the Sox acquired in a 2008 trade with the Atlanta Braves for Javier Vazquez, is a career .218 hitter that strikes out way too much and has been a complete bust. He did post the best season of his career in 2014 however batting .244 with 15 home...

White Sox Off-Season Needs: Position Players

The 2014 version of the White Sox was certainly an improvement over the 2013 team. In record alone the team improved 10 games from last season. And while a 73 win season is certainly nothing to write home about, there was plenty to be excited about. However, if the Sox want to compete next year, or in the next few years, they still have plenty of work to do. Here we are going to...

Twins-White Sox Preview

It's been nearly two months since the Chicago White Sox won three in a row. Those victories were against the Minnesota Twins, who come to Chicago looking to prevent the White Sox from matching that win streak Friday night. Chicago (66-80) won the first three matchups in a four-game series at Minnesota in late July, then went on to lose 26 of 39 before taking the final two of...

Adam Dunn Returns To Chicago

This week, Adam Dunn is back in Chicago to face off against his former team, The Chicago White Sox.

Fortunately, I was there first hand to witness the game. (The picture above is Adam Dunn during his first at...

The Daily Grind: Underdog Tuesday (9/9/14)

Baltimore did their part last night on my 2 unit play on the over. However, Boston’s bats crawled into a hole and didn’t come out all game. They had the bases loaded with 1 out in the 7th, but failed to do anything with it. The Cubs got smoked as expected and Marcus Strohman threw his first career complete game shut out. I will circle his next start. If you paid attention yesterday...

Athletics-White Sox Preview

The Oakland Athletics again have to pick themselves up after blowing a ninth-inning lead in a defeat. The stumbling AL wild card leaders could be hard-pressed to give Jon Lester some run support Tuesday night when they continue this four-game road series against the Chicago White Sox. Oakland (80-63) has played six straight one-run games, losing five of them with blown one-run, ninth...

Tyler Flowers hits tying, winning homers for White Sox vs. A's

  Tyler Flowers shocked the Oakland Athletics on Monday night -- but probably no more than he surprised himself. Flowers hit a solo home run to tie the game in the ninth inning and then added another to win it in the 12th, leading the Chicago White Sox to an improbable 5-4 victory. The catcher became the first player to hit a game-tying home run in the ninth and a game-winning homer...

White Sox Announcer Delivers Incredibly Uninspired Home Run Call (Video)

The Chicago White Sox’s season is done, and so is broadcaster Steve Stone. The 62-75 Sox haven’t given fans much to get pumped about this year, but even when they do put on a show, their announcers can’t even fake a little enthusiasm.

White Sox announcer gives incredibly unenthusiastic home run call

Chicago White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer in the top of the 10th inning Tuesday to give the team a 6-3 cushion in a victory over the Twins.  Outside of first baseman Jose Abreu's emergence and another season of Chris Sale dominance, the 62-75 White Sox have had little to celebrate.  Nevertheless, Flowers' shot failed to jolt White Sox television color...

White Sox Player Attempts to Save Roster Spot

Typically when one says that a player is having a “career-year,” you expect the numbers to be pretty great. While the White Sox respect this guy’s season, his numbers aren’t so great for other players at his position. Tyler Flowers has set career highs in RBIs (45) and HRs (12) this season, as well as AVG (.240) and On-Base Percentage (.298). That’s all well and good, but...

To Block the Plate, or Not Block the Plate, That’s the Question
