Scoring late in games has been key to Chicago White Sox hot start

There are several things that good baseball teams do.  One is getting good starting pitching…check.  Another is playing good defense…check.  And still another is scoring runs late in games. It is that aspect that I decided to take a look at today with regards to the White Sox offensive production. Scoring runs late can be a very valuable offensive trait for a ballclub. While all runs certainly count the sam ...

John Danks release and what it means for White Sox

It appears that John Danks’ time as a member of the White Sox has come to an end.  According to the Sox beat writers, the left-hander will be designated for assignment later this week.  Before we get into what this move means for the White Sox and who is in line to replace him, we should look back at Danks’ time with the Sox. According to the White Sox beat writers, the left-hander will be designated for as ...

The Chicago White Sox and BABIP Woes

Despite the White Sox offense “exploding” for seven runs against the Blue Jays on Monday, the Sox offense has more or less been along for the ride through the first three weeks of the season while the pitching staff carries the team. The Sox have gotten just enough timely hitting to support the pitching, which has been nothing short of spectacular through 20 games. After the Rays series I looked at the offe ...

Taking a deeper look at Mat Latos’ hot start

When the Sox signed Mat Latos in early February, it was viewed as a low risk/high reward move.  The Sox only invested $3 million into the 28-year-old right-hander, with the hopes that he would be able to find the form he had before dealing with a rash of injuries throughout the last two seasons. While it is certainly a small sample size, so far Latos has been better than anyone had hoped.  Through three sta ...

White Sox look better but still have issues on offense

The White Sox are off to a very solid 8-4 start, despite having only played two home games, which is the fewest in the majors so far.  Despite the hot start record-wise, the White Sox offense has struggled coming out of the gate. Great pitching and some timely hitting have gotten them by up to this point, but the Sox offensive issues cost them in a series loss this past weekend in Tampa Bay. Let’s take a lo ...

White Sox bullpen could be big weapon in 2016

Will the White Sox bullpen be their secret weapon in 2016? Bullpens have become a bigger and bigger part of a baseball team over the last decade. They have gone from being where you stick the lesser pitchers – outside of the closer – to vital weapons to shorten the game.  Nowhere was this more evident than with the Kansas City Royals of the last two seasons. In 2014 the Royals rode their three-headed monste ...

Back of the starting rotation thin for White Sox

Coming into this season everyone knew what the White Sox had at the front of their rotation, and it is pretty good. A legit ace in Chris Sale, one of the most underrated pitchers in the game in Jose Quintana, and super sophomore Carlos Rodon combine for a very strong 1-2-3 punch.  In fact, the ZiPS predictions project that threesome to amass more WAR (13.2) than the full rotations of any other team in the A ...

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. Going into 2016 Todd Frazier will enter his age 30 season and the White Sox will have c ...

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 ...

[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 ...
