Their sights are set on an AL Central title after consecutive losing records, maybe even more.

Jose Abreu Talks About His Past and His Dangerous Journey From Cuba

There is not a lot known about White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu’s journey from Cuba to the USA. It was known that he left Cuba in August of 2013 and was signed by the White Sox that October, but the details of his life and defection are not well known. Abreu was born in Cienfuegos, Cuba in 1987. Cuba was still financially supported by the Soviet Union at this point. They would...

Carlos Rodon Dazzles in Spring Outing

Many have said college is the best time of one’s life, but for Carlos Rodon and Brett Austin, the fun just keeps on rolling. Just when the NC State teammates thought their time as teammates were over, they were both selected by the Chicago White Sox last June in the first and fourth rounds, respectively. While Carlos Rodon is the White Sox top prospect, Austin did not even...

2015 A.L. Central Preview: Chicago White Sox

It has been a busy offseason for the Chicago White Stockings, and one that has certainly improved an underachieving squad from 2014.  From big name pitching prospects to more power in the line-up, the pale hose opened their check books and went shopping.  But will that equal success in 2015?  With an improved division all around, here is a little preview of the White...

Sale, however, may be ready by the time the...

White Sox Announce Jeff Samardzija As Opening Day Starter

Possibly one of the best shifting gears moments in Spring Training is when teams begin to announce their Opening Day starters. It’s a signal that baseball season is close. In fact, it could even be seen as a Bat Signal for fans less, well, ‘enthusiastic’ than others to start really paying attention. There are still plenty of position and rotation battles to be had, but we are...

Chris Sale Not Far From A Return To The Mound

Chris Sale took his first real steps back onto the baseball field on Monday. He ran without issue for the first time since suffering an avulsion fracture to his right foot back on February 27. He was injured in an accident in his Arizona home. Although the nature of the accident hasn’t been made public, it’s not entirely uncommon for offseason activities to render players injured...

Country music singer Luke Bryan takes batting practice at White Sox spring training

It's not a bad life for country music star Luke Bryan who traded his guitar for some lumber and joined the Chicago White Sox for during spring training batting practice in Arizona.   Here's Bryan taking some cuts with background music by The Wallflowers and some playful ribbing by Sox players: Bryan said that he went to the same high school as Buster Posey in Leesburg, Ga., where...

White Sox Add Adam Eaton to Long-Term Plan

When the White Sox signed Adam Eaton to a five-year, $23.5 extension over the weekend, the move in and of itself, wasn’t huge news. It wasn’t huge money, and Eaton isn’t a huge player, literally or figuratively. But the move wasn’t just about Eaton, necessarily, rather it was part of a bigger plan. Take it […]

Who’s at second for the Chicago White Sox?

The Chicago White Sox do not have many question marks heading into opening day. This is the most solid the south siders have looked since their World Series run in 2005, so heading into spring training there is just one major hole left to fill. The decision that needs to be made by the Chicago White Sox is who is going to head into the season as the starting second baseman. Gordon...

White Sox Prospects Where are They Now

As a follow up to my Cubs article, I thought it would fitting to check out what former White Sox prospects were up to these days.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale threw a bullpen session and said he's making progress while recovering from a broken foot. He threw from the mound on Friday, just three weeks after injuring his foot.

The Innovative Charles Comiskey

Decades before he elevated to the executive suite as owner of the Chicago White Sox, Charles Comiskey pioneered a fielding concept during his playing days. Or so the legend goes. After Comiskey died in 1931, a series of Chicago Daily Tribune articles examined his life, focusing, in part, on his playing and managing tenures. In the article “Comiskey Worked as Train Butcher to...

Chicago White Sox 2015 Preview: 3 Up and 3 Down

It seems like there is nowhere to go but up for the Chicago White Sox in 2015 after finishing 73-89 last year. They finished 17 games behind the division winning Detroit Tigers and looked lifeless for most of the season. Fans demanded that management do something after watching their team lose 188 games over the last two seasons, and General Manager Rick Hahn did just that. The Sox...

Spring Training Position Battle Updates

The White Sox are about two weeks into Spring Training games and while they still have another two-plus weeks of games left before heading north, this seems like a good time to check in with the position battles. While I don’t put a ton of stock into spring numbers, for players competing for specific spots it does carry some weight. So let’s check in and see who has the early...

Can Micah Johnson Defy The Odds?

The allure of a roadrunner, a true game-changer with blazing speed and monster stolen base upside at the top of a batting order, captivates the imagination of fantasy owners every offseason. Sadly, it seems like every time we invest in the top speedsters in the minor leagues, they fail to live up to the hype and leave us feeling like Wile E. Coyote after his latest purchase from...

2015 season preview: Chicago White Sox

For a while there, the Chicago White Sox, along with their North Side counterparts, were the talk of the Major League Baseball offseason. They made some sweeping additions in order to improve what was an absolutely miserable bullpen last season, bringing in relievers David Robertson and Zach Duke, while signing outfielder Melky Cabrera as well. There was also that whole acquiring...

Chicago White Sox: who’s on second?

With the whirlwind of moves GM Rick Hahn made this past off-season, the Chicago White Sox are well set to retake command of the American League Central Division. Hahn’s carpenter impersonation was quite impressive as he patched and filled nearly every hole left in an already strong and promising lineup. While every other position in the field has at least one player penciled in...

Chris Sale out three weeks with foot injury

Man, baseball players can be clumsy.   Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale became the latest ballplayer to go down with an odd injury, as the White Sox announced he’ll miss three weeks with a broken foot. Sale apparently suffered the injury at home. It’s unclear what exactly Sale did to injure himself, but general manager Rick Hahn did give this (perhaps tongue-in-cheek?)...
