WHITE SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Tough series for White Sox bullpen in KC

As the White Sox walked off the field following Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Royals, they knew they'd missed out on a big opportunity. In fact, they'd missed out on three of them.

Bullpen botches three leads in three games for sweep in Kansas City The White Sox couldn't hold a four-run lead over three innings on Friday.

Today, it was Nate Jones' turn to crap the...

Chicago White Sox: Everyone needs to step up

The Chicago White Sox had an excellent start to the season. All-Star pitcher Chris Sale winning nine out of his first 10 starts, third baseman Todd Frazier leading the American league in home runs so far this season, and the team has been in first place for the majority of the season thus far. But now we’re starting to see the White Sox skid a little as we end the month of May...

Royals 8, White Sox 7: LOL

The Sox somehow lose a game where David Robertson pitched with a six-run lead The last thing I saw of this game was Sal Perez limping off the field. The White Sox were leading 7-1, and Kansas City's catcher needed help to leave the field after hyperextending his knee in a collision with third baseman Cheslor Cuthbert. I wasn't putting an easy win in the bank. Rather, some friends...

Chicago White Sox: A Plea to Fire Robin Ventura

Rick Hahn, Kenny Williams, Jerry Reinsdorf, please tell me you’re reading this. Listen to me real close. It’s time. It’s time to fire Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura. It’s gotten bad.

The San Diego Padres look destined for another year of mediocrity, and they may be close to offloading one of their more expensive veterans as a result. According to Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Padres are in talks to trade pitcher James Shields to the Chicago White Sox, and the discussions have “significant momentum.” While a deal may not be imminent, the...

Column: White Sox must go all-in to win now

The hot start of the Chicago White Sox has cooled a bit lately, and that might be a good thing for them long-term. While the Sox started 23-10 on the season behind fantastic starting pitching in the first month or so, some of their production has fallen back down to earth—and with it, their record. Chicago is just 4-12 in its last 16 games, seeing the pitching outside of left...

Despite recent struggles, White Sox remain confident

The Chicago White Sox are officially in a funk, having dropped 11 of 15 games heading into Friday night’s game at Kansas City. The team’s struggles have been in nearly every phase of the game — hitting, pitching and occasionally fielding. But the key for the White Sox isn’t what’s happened the previous two-plus weeks, but rather how they react to their first extended rough...

The MLB Draft and the Chicago White Sox: A Recent History

The current regime of the Chicago White Sox, for all intents and purposes, began in 2000 when Kenny Williams took over as general manager. Williams replaced Ron Schueler and wound up as the third-longest tenured GM in team history, behind only Roland Hemond and Harry Grabiner. While Williams handed over the GM reins to Rick Hahn after the 2012 season, he still serves as the team’s...

Chicago White Sox: It’s time to cheer for Todd Frazier

It’s difficult not to cheer for Todd Frazier. The Chicago White Sox third basemen seems to be one of the giddiest and team-first players in Major League Baseball, being a key cog in helping turning around the chemistry issues that plagued the ballclub throughout spring training (yes, this is a sly reference to Drake LaRoche). He’s also one of the best players in the game now...

Did Alex Gordon’s wrist break the Royals’ chances?

Heading into the 2016 season, many were down on the Kansas City Royals’ chances. Despite winning the World Series and two straight AL pennants, improvements made by the Tigers, White Sox and Indians during the off-season matched with expected regression and the expected loss of free agents largely lead to the Royals being expected to finish in the middle of the pack in the AL Central...
