The White Sox reportedly signed free agent pitcher Mat Latos to a one year contract on Tuesday. According to Dan Hayes of CSN, the deal is for $3 million. The signing gives the Sox some much needed depth in the starting pitching department, something that was brought up as recently as today in a piece on Fangraphs that advocated for the signing of Yovani Gallardo. The signing is...

Just How Messy is the White Sox’ Organization?

The 2015 season was a disappointment for pretty much everyone and everything involved with your Chicago White Sox. There was all sorts of hope and expectations surrounding the team after a flashy off-season filled with moves that were supposed to help the team to compete now and moving forward. And why not? They had some excellent pieces in place in Sale, Abreu, Quintana, and Eaton...

White Sox Will Close Out Disappointing Season With Six-Game Homestand, Tickets Remain Very Cheap

For the Chicago White Sox fans who may have grown enamored with this year’s roster, take a good look. In the last week of the regular season, the White Sox will play nothing but home games, as their final six contests will take place from the friendly confines of U.S. Cellular Field. It’s also surely the last time you’ll see this gang all accounted for and in the same uniform...

Despite Fainting Playoff Hope, White Sox Tickets Have Great Value Throughout September

Mathematically, the Chicago White Sox enter September still technically in the American League Wild Card hunt, but overcoming several other teams in front of them looks like a nearly impossible task. Even so, with a month-and-change remaining in the slate, the White Sox will keep fighting and trying to string together as many wins as they can get. They’ll find out quickly how legitimate...

White Sox Ready To Face Fellow Contenders, Begin Quest Towards Postseason

The Chicago White Sox enter the month of August having won eight of their last 10 ballgames, while smacking 15 home runs in the process to jumpstart an offense that can be really dangerous. In short, they have played themselves back into the American Wild Card race, after exhibiting signs of a season that was on the verge of becoming a lost one. They went 16-10 in July to produce...

Three Bats That Make Sense for the Sox

The MLB Trade Deadline is just about here. Thanks to a sudden surge of offense and some quality play by our Sox, it looks as if the winds have changed faster than a politician’s mind and our Southsiders now find themselves as potential buyers. With the team just 2.5 games back of a Wild Card and the four teams ahead of them (Twins, Orioles, Rays, and Blue Jays) all having significant...

Chicago White Sox Head Into August As One Of Baseball’s Hottest Teams, Enters Playoff Race

Left for dead as baseball went into the All-Star break, the Chicago White Sox have thrust themselves into the American League playoff picture and are one of the hottest teams in baseball heading into August. It didn’t look great coming out of the break, as the White Sox lost three out of four to the first-place Kansas City Royals, before dropping two games to the MLB-best St. Louis...

Underachieving White Sox Aiming To Turn Things Around In Second Half

The Chicago White Sox haven’t enjoyed a highly successful first half to the 2015 MLB season. After a much-needed All-Star break, they’ll hope they can band together and enjoy a significantly better run during the second half. Having ace Chris Sale backing them certainly helps, being one of the main attractions for White Sox tickets, and Sale should start off next weekend well...

Chicago White Sox Face Two AL East Opponents For Most Expensive July Tickets

The Chicago White Sox are going to have to need a drastic turnaround if they plan on getting in on the playoff race. Ten games under .500 and 12.5 games back of the Kansas City Royals in the American League Central division (as of 6/30), the White Sox need July to be their launching pad for their second-half run. The schedule doesn’t make it easy for the White Sox, who start the...

One step back and one step forward for the Chicago White Sox, who remain in last place of the American League Central division, trailing the Kansas City Royals by 7 games. After sweeping a three-game set against the AL West division-leading Houston Astros, the White Sox went to Tropicana Field and were swept by the Tampa Bay Rays over the weekend. In the series finale, Chris Sale’s...

Bonifaci-no? Emilio’s Role Seems Vague and Unnecessary

While the White Sox have played a better brand of baseball of late, the offense is still leaving a lot to be desired. Robin Ventura has done some things to tinker with the lineup recently, including shifting guys around in the order and giving certain players more at-bats. One of those guys who has seen a spike in some PT is Emilio Bonifacio, who started consecutive games this week...

Samardzija and the Sox First Inning Woes

Jeff Samardzija was brought in to be the Batman to Chris Sale’s Superman. Even though he was going to be the number two pitcher in the rotation, the expectation was that he would really be pitcher 1-A. Eleven starts into his White Sox career and Samardzija is 4-3 with a 4.68 ERA and a 1.342 WHIP. Hardly ace like numbers. So what has gone wrong for “Shark” this year? Well there...

The Next Number the White Sox Should Retire

With Paul Konerko getting his number retired this weekend it got me to thinking who might be the next person to be honored by the White Sox by having their number taken out of circulation. Certainly there are some names that pop up when talking to fans but for me there is one choice that stands above the rest. Ozzie Guillen. Obviously some relationships will have to be mended in...

White Sox back to .500 and Showing Signs of Life

Don’t look now, but the White Sox are actually back to .500 at 17-17 following their first three-game sweep in Oakland since 1997. To the surprise of many, the Sox were able to get themselves back to break-even by winning five straight ROAD games after starting the year 2-12 away from home. Now the Sox come back home for seven games against Cleveland and Minnesota, two very beatable...

LaRoche’s Slow Start No Reason for Panic

With White Sox designated hitter Adam LaRoche off to a slow start for the 2015 White Sox, many fans are concerned, and rightfully so. After all, his performance in the batter’s box has reminded us far too much of the last DH we signed away from the Washington Nationals: Adam Dunn. However, we must keep in mind that LaRoche has had a long, productive career, so it would be silly...

Series Preview: Sox in Baltimore to take on the O’s

The White Sox hit the road after a fairly successful homestand which saw them win four out of six and take series against the Indians and the Royals. The big blemish on the homestand came in the first game against Kansas City, which saw a bench clearing brawl thanks to renowned jerk Yordano Ventura’s antics. Ventura has managed to piss off half the American League in about three...

Ventura’s No-Challenge Is Inexcusable

Robin Ventura was one of my favorite White Sox players growing up. When the Sox tagged him to become the manager I was both surprised but intrigued by the possibility. As such, I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt at first. I was even willing to give him a pass for the last two years because he didn’t have much to work with. But as we enter year four of the Ventura...

New-Look Bullpen Starting To Make A Statement

While Jeff Samardzija and Chris Sale’s efforts were the headliners as the White Sox picked up their first two wins of the 2015 season over the weekend, they were not able to get it done alone. Given their first two chances to win games since Spring Training, the bullpen came on and slammed the door shut in support of the starters. On both days it was Zach Duke in the eighth and...

The first four games of this season sucked. Luckily, the White Sox are going to be a tough team to keep on a lengthy losing streak at any point, thanks to their strong top-end of the rotation.
