Nothing forced the team to sign Dioner Navarro, which makes bad season even worse Dioner Navarro was a disaster. There are no two ways about it. When the White Sox acquired Navarro to replace Tyler Flowers -- Alex Avila signed before him, but Flowers was still in the fold — everybody knew they would be losing strikes, as the Sox went from one of the best receivers to one of the...

Here is one of my favorite clips of the season: That’s Ronald Torreyes, attempting a delayed and perfunctory swing at a pitch-out to try to protect the running Aaron Hicks, who ends up in a heap on the ground after getting jarred in the marbles. Torreyes swings for no reason other than he’s always been told to swing in these situations, so the decision was entirely out of his...
Rick Hahn is in familiar position of denying rifts and weighing a sale Rick Hahn spoke to the media on Thursday, which was only strange because he was accused of ducking the media a few days before. He sought to clear the air on that part before the session ... Hahn hadn't done a full media session since the Aug. 1 trade deadline, but before talking for 13 minutes, he said he...

The Chicago White Sox agreed to a deal on Wednesday that will see their stadium renamed Guaranteed Rate Field at season’s end, and the internet is having a blast mocking the new name. The new deal runs through the 2030 season and takes effect starting next year. The Cell will no longer be The Cell. #WhiteSox announce new ballpark naming rights partnership. “Guaranteed Rate...
"Hitting a round object with another round object as it is moving is the hardest thing to do in all of sports." Ted Williams, arguably the greatest hitter in Major League Baseball history, said this—a simple statement that expertly sums up the impossibility of hitting a baseball. It's a total guessing game for a batter: what pitch will be thrown; the speed of the ball as it...
Adam Eaton’s first career grand slam in the ninth inning on Wednesday night at Progressive Field not only turned a 7-6 Chicago White Sox deficit into a 10-7 victory over the Cleveland Indians, it came with an undeniable stylistic flair. How? The outfielder delivered the tide-turning round-tripper while blowing a bubble. ICYMI: @AdamSpankyEaton had a grand bubble last night...
