What Does Adding Frazier Mean For the White Sox?

The White Sox have acquired Todd Frazier in a three team deal with Los Angeles Dodgers, and the Cincinnati Reds. The White Sox surrendered pitcher Frankie Montas, IF Michan Johnson, and OF Trayce Thompson. This move signals that Brett Lawrie, who was acquired from the Oakland A's last week, will move over to second base.

Brett Lawrie A Good Get for White Sox

I figured a good way to get back into swing is to cover a small trade that I actually really fancied. That trade of course was The Oakland A’s sending Brett Lawrie to the White Sox for two young minor league pitchers Zack Erwin, and J.B. Wendelken. Going by the title you probably figured that I like this trade for the White Sox. Since Joe Crede’s last game as a White Sox on 22/09/2008, the White Sox have go ...

Gavin Floyd: Underrated Extraordinaire

Over the past three seasons or so, White Sox starting pitching Gavin Floyd seems to be the fan’s whipping boy on the team. Such remarks are usually that Floyd isn’t “mentally tough” or that he “sucks”, and has “always sucked”. All very harsh, and unfair criticism of Gavin Floyd. Like with John Danks’ extension last offseason, people look at Gavin Floyd’s old school numbers: 62-56, 4.12 ERA as a member of th ...
