[VIDEO] Avisail Garcia robs Chris Davis of game-tying HR

Mercy! That's all that needed to be said about Avisail Garcia's game-saving home run in the bottom of the 9th inning on Saturday. The White Sox were leading 3-2 with one out in the ninth when Orioles right fielder Chris Davis hit a deep fly ball to right field. Garcia tracked the ball and leaped up against the fetch to rob Davis of a home run and save the game for the White Sox. Watch the play: Your browser ...

White Sox Chris Sale named AL Pitcher of the Month

Chris Sale's impressive June campaign has earned him the AL Pitcher of the Month award announced on Thursday by Major League Baseball. Sale is in one of the best strikeout stretches in baseball history as the 26-year-old left-hander has struck out at least 10 batters in his last eight starts. The only other pitcher to do so? Pedro Martinez. Sale finished the month of June with a 2-2 record with a 1.83 ERA a ...

Chicago White Sox 2015 Trade Value Deadline Preview

The Chicago White Sox are in a race for dead last in the AL and as such, should undoubtedly be sellers before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. While Rick Hahn has repeatedly said that he and the organization believes in this team, sadly, their play on the field dictates moves should be made very soon. While the Sox do not have as many valuable assets as some may think, there is room for some wheeling ...

White Sox Offseason Evaluations: Part 2

When a team makes as many offseason moves as the White Sox did this past winter, you’re going to see inconsistent play. After all, there’s always a learning curve when it comes to new guys on new teams in new leagues. While it doesn’t have the same effect as NBA teams, it nonetheless plays a role. In part one of the White Sox’s offseason evaluations, I focused three big pitcher acquisitions. This week, I am ...

Chicago White Sox division woes spell doom

While there are 162 games in the regular season, more often than not, the teams that make the playoffs have terrific records against their division foes. As I recently said in Carlos Sanchez Brings Hope to the South Side, the Sox are not expected to be playing come late October, but if they want to prove everyone wrong, they better start turning it around in the division. As of May 30, the White Sox are 12- ...

Carlos Sanchez Brings Hope to the South Side

The White Sox were not expected to make much noise this season, but since calling up 22-year-old Carlos Sanchez, there’s been good reason to watch the team over on the South Side. The Sox started the season with Micah Johnson at second. However, with three errors in 98 chances and a .969 fielding percentage, the Sox were due for a change. After sending Sanchez down in early April after making the opening da ...

Chicago Baseball Round-Up: Opening Week worries

Let’s overreact to the first week of baseball! The White Sox are 2-4 and scuffled plenty in Kansas City, but started pulling it together over the weekend, winning their last two games against Minnesota. The Cubs are steady, swinging and missing more than they’d like but their pitching staff has yet to yield more than five runs in a game and it’s allowed their bats to play catch-up. So, a quick round-up of l ...

More of the same in 2015 for the Sox’s Adam Eaton

Long since the days of Scott Podsednik have the White Sox had a leadoff man in their lineup as versatile and as energetic as Adam Eaton. On March 20, the White Sox locked up their center fielder and top-of-the-lineup catalyst to a five-year, $23.5 million extension. White Sox general manager Rick Hahn just locked up a member of this invigorated franchise’s core to another team-friendly contract. Eaton, 26, ...

Carlos Sanchez should be White Sox second baseman

It seems like a foregone conclusion now. Micah Johnson had a hot spring and appears like he won the battle for second base, beating out Gordon Beckham, Emilio Bonafacio, and Carlos Sanchez. Johnson, age 24, put up a solid 321/368/453 (821) slash line over 21 games during spring training.To match his impressive spring, Johnson has an impressive minor league track record (297/366/422 [787]). Let us not forget ...

How Much Better Is the White Sox Bullpen?

The past two seasons have been, to say the least, poor for the White Sox. In 2013 the White Sox had their worst season since 1970, in 2014 the Sox would improve by 10 games but still falling well behind the Tigers, Royals, and Indians. While it is hard to pin point one area that the White Sox really underachieved, you could make an argument their Achilles' heel has been their bullpen. Over the past two seas ...
