Chicago White Sox: Second half questions

At 41-45, the Chicago White Sox find themselves in a more precarious situation than their North Side-dwelling brethren. And were it not for a flash of life just prior to the All-Star break that saw them win 9 of their last 12, we'd probably already consider them roadkill for the vultures of the impending trade deadline, and Robin Ventura might be looking for another job. But hope remains. Thanks to the seco ...

Chicago White Sox need to start considering major trades

  Champion professional sports teams are built on consistency. Just look at our Chicago Blackhawks or the San Antonio Spurs. Consistency is their calling cards. If you can consistently do your job, put in the work, function as a team and perform at your highest level as much as possible, your team will be successful. Sadly, the White Sox have been anything but. The 2015 White Sox have been defined by t ...

White Sox bats prevail, Benches are cleared in trip to Detroit

  (Photo Credit: Associated Press) The Detroit Tigers (50-41) always bring the worst out in any Chicago fan--so it's no surprise that there was a bench-clearing incident in today’s White Sox (36-53) series finale in Detroit. But we’ll get to that. The series overall has been fun to watch—arguably the most fun a White Sox fan has had in a long time. With the last place Southsiders pulling a series win f ...

Dunn, White Sox serve Boston’s Lester first season loss

Adam Dunn hammered a three-run homer in the first inning to help push the White Sox  to a 6-4 win against the Boston Red Sox. This was the opener of a three-game run at U.S. Cellular Field. Monday night’s win against the Red Sox (27-18) was a big win for the White Sox (20-23) in many ways. Allow me to lead off with the obvious; this win stopped Boston’s lefty power hurler Jon Lester from a 7-0 record, which ...

Let’s Talk Lineups

Though not much has changed personnel wise as as far as the White Sox offense goes, there certainly will need to be some key decisions made by manager Ozzie Guillen for the 2011 campaign. The Sox added Adam Dunn, and will see either Brent Morel or Dayan Viciedo compete heavily for the 3rd base position.  Other than those two spots, the roster remains nearly identical to last year. So how do you line em up? ...

Alexei Ramirez: Best Defensive SS in Baseball

When the White Sox first signed Alexei Ramirez, Ozzie Guillen was insistent that he could one day be the best defensive shortstop in baseball. After his rookie season, that looked like a laughable overestimation of Ramirez's fielding ability. Playing mostly at second base, but a little in center field and shortstop, Ramirez posted across the board bad numbers. An overall UZR of -10.3, and a negative rating ...
