Bullpen of Horrors: White Sox Hoping Revamped Pen Erases Painful Memories of 2014

Whenever Robin Ventura made a call to the bullpen last season, White Sox fans braced themselves for cringe-worthy moments. The bullpen had a combined ERA of 4.38, which was the third worst in baseball. The pen tied for the seventh most blown saves, led the Majors in walks and had the fewest amount of strikeouts. Did the bullpen cost the White Sox a playoff berth in 2014? Not likely...

Stolen Base Legend Vince Coleman Having Little to No Impact with White Sox

When the Chicago White Sox added Vince Coleman to the coaching staff as a baserunning instructor it seemed to be one more new piece in a season of high expectations. Coleman was a six-time National League stolen base leader and topped the 100-mark in his first three seasons in the Majors from 1985-87. He finished with 752 steals during his 13-year career.

Game 2015: White Sox at Tigers

Well, I tuned in just in time to hear Abreu’s grand slam (man was Dan defeated the minute the ball hit the bat), which really was the icing on the cake for the White Sox. Sanchez was bad from the get go, barely getting through the 1st unscathed after stranding runners on 2nd and 3rd. He was beat up for 4 earned in the 3rd, and plastered for another 5 in the 4th while only recording...

Signs That the White Sox Are Turning Things Around

Game 2015.11: White Sox at Tigers

Was he safe? According to Dan & Jim, the tag was there ahead of Castellanos. According to the White Sox dugout coaches, they weren’t sure. Not before the time to appeal the play had expired and the call was finalized, anyway. But the White Sox internal replay system not moving quick enough is not the real issue, it’s that Ventura should have challenged the play no matter...

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...

While Kris Bryant Gets Promoted, Carlos Rodon Waits

As Kris Bryant heads to North Side of Chicago to make his debut, the lack of movement on the South Side has merited much less attention. Carlos Rodon remains a starting pitcher in Charlotte as the White Sox use two currently inferior pitchers in the rotation. Much of the same arguments for keeping Kris Bryant […]

Previewing the Tigers/White Sox Series

We’ve come to expect the offensive production in recent years, but one thing we haven’t been used to seeing from the American League Central-leading Detroit Tigers is a pitching staff that compliments the offensive output.
