Fantasy Baseball - Finding Production at the Bottom of the Order

In fantasy baseball, the 3,4,5 hitters of a teams lineup are the focus of fantasy drafts.  That is where the majority of home runs and runs batted in are generated.  Then focus shifts to the top of the order, and the speed guys who get on base, can steal second and rack up runs.  The bottom of the order is typically overlooked, but there are some decent players who fill out a...

Around The Diamond: Catching Conundrum

Our positional previews continue with a look behind the dish. While there is a heck of a lot to be excited about when it comes to the 2015 Chicago White Sox, the catcher position leaves much to be desired. In most people’s minds, there are four, maybe five names to watch for when it comes to White Sox catchers when it comes to 2015. When you hear each name, you’ll probably groan...

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.

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...

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

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.
