Can you believe it has been 7 years since former Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle threw a perfect game? Yep, 7 years.

Watch as Buehrle throws the 18th perfect game in MLB history: Your browser does not support iframes. We also saw one o ...

White Sox not looking to move Sale despite “kings ransom” offer

Let's face it. The Chicago White Sox are an average team looking to squeak into the playoffs or at least be above .500 so that Jerry Reinsdorf can write the season up as a win. So to a degree, it would make sense to call the season for what it is (pretty much lost), look at the mostly barren minor league farm system and then plan for the future accordingly, which might include trading guys like Todd Frazier ...

Chicago White Sox could add strength from within the organization

As the second half of the season gets under way, the Chicago White Sox have a few major decisions on hand. It is no secret that they are in need of another power hitter in the batter's box and another arm or two in the bullpen. Names such as Nick Markakis of the Atlanta Braves and Carlos Gonzalez of the Colorado Rockies have begun to surface, but the South Siders also have options within their own organizat ...

Where the White Sox stand at the break

Well here we are at the All-Star break and while they may not have taken the most traditional route to get there, the White Sox are about where I thought they would be. At present, they sit two games over the .500 mark at 45-43.  They came up one win short of the benchmark I set for them a few weeks ago of hitting the break at 46-42 by losing two of three at home to the lowly Braves to stumble into the brea ...

Entering the All-Star break at 45-43, the Chicago White Sox aren’t ready to call an end to the season just yet.

White Sox add minor league pitcher

If the Chicago White Sox are going to make any kind of a postseason push throughout the second half of the season, the bullpen is going to have to make some major adjustments. The White Sox put some effort into the situation Friday by making a minor league deal with Ryan Webb. Throughout 17 1/3 innings with the Rays organization, Webb had accumulated an ERA of 5.19 before being let go. He has built a name f ...
