Breaking Down Alexei Ramirez’s Hot Start

Alexei Ramirez is hotter than a summer's day in Pinar Del Rio. Entering into Sunday's affair with the Cleveland Indians, Ramirez was posting a slashline of .413/.460/.630 (211 wRC+). Ramirez was the hero of Sunday with a walk off home run in the bottom of the 9th to lift the Sox over the Indians 4-3. This April is quite the turnaround from previous Alexei Aprils. 2013:  281/316/382 (689 OPS) 2012: 207/322/2 ...

Dunn says Hooray for Hollywood!

I'm just not sure I could still fit in it or not." – Adam Dunn (via ESPN) -- Well, if the whole baseball thing doesn't work out for Adam Dunn, looks like next stop might be Tinsel Town.

Sox part with Reed for Arizona third base prospect Matt Davidson

The White Sox have been busy in the trades as of late. With Hector Santiago heading to the Angels and the acquisition of Adam Eaton just last week, we look at another big change.   The Southsiders have acquired third baseman Matt Davidson from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for pitcher Addison Reed.   While filling third base was a necessary fix-up, I’m personally sad to see 24-year-old Addi ...

Farewell Santiago, Hello Eaton

Every time something new pops up on my Sox feed, I hear the song “Changes” by Tupac in my head.   Today we say goodbye to the entertaining lefty hurler, Hector Santiago (last season went 4-7 with a 3.51 ERA in 23 starts. 0-2 with a 3.93 ERA in 11 relief appearances), as he heads off to the Los Angeles Angels.   Personally, I’ll miss him being around. Sox fans will argue that his stats weren’t too ...

Konerko to Return in 2014 Season

(Photo Credit: AP) As all of our inboxes have been flooded with overpriced White Sox 2014 game plan emails (we should all get free tickets after sitting through last season..), Rick Hahn and the White Sox have been figuring things out for the Southsiders’ 2014 run.   Everything else they’ve announced so far hadn't been too noteworthy—renewing contracts of team staples like Beckham and De Aza, no contra ...

Why the Cell Needs to Be Absolutely Packed on September 29th.

I get it. 2013 has been a train wreck of a season. 2013 was supposed to be a season of good vibes, and contention. But, alas, a team that many thought had the means to at least compete for the playoffs, win 83-87 games or so, maybe sneak in if they could get hot the last month or so. But this? Nobody saw this. Nobody could have predicted that on September 8th, 2013 the Sox would be in dead last, 56-85 and 2 ...

Paul Konerko Wants To Continue

2013 was supposedly going to be Captain Paul Konerko's last year in Major League baseball. Things looked even more bleak as Konerko has been having one of the worst offensive seasons in his major league career. However, White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn came out as saying there was 0% chance Konerko would retire after this season. Today Konerko told reporter Bob Nightengale that he wants to sign another ...

White Sox keep hot streak rolling in weekend wins over Rangers

(Photo Credit: ESPN Dallas) Well hello again. Nice to catch up after a two week hiatus. I don't know if it's all the pre-season football that has me derailed, or my Fantasy Football lineup, but I have to say I picked the worst time to put my Southsiders on the back burner. But maybe I'm doing something right. I stop watching the White Sox (54-75) for a week and they go for 8 wins in the last 9 games. I can' ...
