Here are ten reasons why you should be watching the White Sox this season: First Up: Big Slugger, the...

An idea for MLB: Schedule full Sunday of Opening Day games

My latest column for the National Sports Journalism Center. Any thoughts? ******* Opening Day always has been a very special day for me. Baseball brings the promise of spring, even though winter seems to linger into mid May in stupid-weather Chicago. My first vivid memory of Opening Day was in 1968 when the White Sox opened at home against Cleveland. I was an 8-year-old just beginning...

Delicious Items to Add to the Menu of Chicago Ballparks

Get your peanuts, popcorn, hot dogs, and rack of lamb. Ballparks have gotten more creative and innovative with their concession menu. I remember having my first “Walking Taco” at a White Sox game. The treat has caught on elsewhere and is now available at parks across the area. If you visit ballparks across America you will find crazy food choices that will either gross you out...

MLB Stadium Food Has Reached a New Level

It has become a competition of sorts amongst fellow MLB stadiums to see which can come up with the most innovative or ridiculous food inventions.

Kyle Drabek Claimed by White Sox

Kyle Drabek, who had been competing to join the Blue Jays’ bullpen when the team headed north, has been claimed on waivers by the Chicago White Sox. It isn’t entirely clear at present if Drabek will join Chicago’s bullpen or try to be snuck through waivers again by them since he’s out of options. David Robertson, Zach Putnam, Jake Petricka, and Zach Duke are locks. Javy Guerra...

Why Rodon belongs in majors, service-time clock and all

In Chicago, at least, all spring phenom service-time dilemmas are not created equal. The Cubs have faced scrutiny for what would be an undeserved demotion for slugger Kris Bryant. I trust you’ve heard about that. The White Sox are in a very different position with left-handed starter Carlos Rodon, the No. 3 overall pick in last year’s draft. Rodon has pitched brilliantly this...

In manager Robin Ventura‘s first season as the team’s manager, 2012, the White Sox went 85-77, giving Ventura the AL Manager of the Year in his first season behind the bench. The White Sox knew they needed to get better if they wanted to compete with the likes...

CHICAGO (AP) A decade removed from their most recent championship, the Chicago White Sox once again are eyeing a big season.

Jose Abreu Talks About His Past and His Dangerous Journey From Cuba

There is not a lot known about White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu’s journey from Cuba to the USA. It was known that he left Cuba in August of 2013 and was signed by the White Sox that October, but the details of his life and defection are not well known. Abreu was born in Cienfuegos, Cuba in 1987. Cuba was still financially supported by the Soviet Union at this point. They would...

Carlos Rodon Dazzles in Spring Outing

Many have said college is the best time of one’s life, but for Carlos Rodon and Brett Austin, the fun just keeps on rolling. Just when the NC State teammates thought their time as teammates were over, they were both selected by the Chicago White Sox last June in the first and fourth rounds, respectively. While Carlos Rodon is the White Sox top prospect, Austin did not even...

2015 A.L. Central Preview: Chicago White Sox

It has been a busy offseason for the Chicago White Stockings, and one that has certainly improved an underachieving squad from 2014.  From big name pitching prospects to more power in the line-up, the pale hose opened their check books and went shopping.  But will that equal success in 2015?  With an improved division all around, here is a little preview of the White...

White Sox Announce Jeff Samardzija As Opening Day Starter

Possibly one of the best shifting gears moments in Spring Training is when teams begin to announce their Opening Day starters. It’s a signal that baseball season is close. In fact, it could even be seen as a Bat Signal for fans less, well, ‘enthusiastic’ than others to start really paying attention. There are still plenty of position and rotation battles to be had, but we are...

Chris Sale Not Far From A Return To The Mound

Chris Sale took his first real steps back onto the baseball field on Monday. He ran without issue for the first time since suffering an avulsion fracture to his right foot back on February 27.
