Most Essential White Sox Vote: Round 35

Player-coach, innings eater, trade fodder ... whatever you call him, he’s our No. 34 Congratulations, James Shields, you are the 34th most essential White Sox player! Shields made a pretty shocking leap, from 6% last ballot to 41% (36 of 87 votes) this time around. A lotta fans of grunting, I suppose. He was named the 18th most important member of the White Sox roster earlier this season, earning 21% of the 18th vote. If there’s a player you feel has been overlooked so far in voting, write him in by making a comment below. With Shields advancing, Gregory Infante is added to the...

Rock bottom? A’s wallop Sox, 11-2

Rock bottom? A’s wallop Sox, 11-2

Flaccid, flatulent, fetid play paces opener blowout This evening’s doubleheader opener, an 11-2 Oakland A’s blowout over the Chicago White Sox, had many of the hallmarks of the insipid baseball being played in 2018 on the South Side: Starter horribleness: Natch, there will be some James Shields apologists who may praise Big Game’s 99 pitches to earn 14 outs, especially given the three errors committed behind him. Fair. But a game score of 28 doesn’t lie. Leaky D: Yoán Moncada’s olé defense led to errors on two grounders, and Leury García did the same on a smash single to...

Franklin Barreto belts two three-run homers in A’s Game 1 romp

CHICAGO - Franklin Barreto, playing in the same spot and against the same starter he faced in his major-league debut a year earlier, provided the exact same outcome in Game 1 of Oakland’s doubleheader against the White Sox. Barreto crushed a three-run blast against James Shields in the second inning, and added another three-run homer in the seventh to help the A’s pummel Chicago 11-2, Oakland’s season-high fifth win in a row. Barreto recorded his first multi-homer game as a big leaguer and his six RBIs were a career high. The rookie second baseman also...

White Sox beat Indians 5-1; Shields stymies Indians’ offense

White Sox beat Indians 5-1; Shields stymies Indians’ offense

James Shields turns in one of his most dominant performances of the season... I noted in the gamethread that James Shields needed 6 1⁄3 innings to eclipse 2,500 career innings, not really thinking much of it. Going against a good Cleveland Indians lineup didn’t give me the most confidence entering tonight’s game, but he sure proved me wrong. Shields ended up going an impressive seven innings of one-run ball. He gave up four hits and didn’t allow a base-on-balls. This was certainly a nice bounceback game for Shields, who struggled mightily last Thursday against the Minnesota Twins...

James Shields hoping to reach an innings milestone tonight... Time: 7:10 p.m. CST TV: WGN Radio: WGN 720 James Shields gets the start for the White Sox tonight. Shields had one of his worst outings in his last start against the Minnesota Twins. He gave up seven runs on eight hits and two walks in his five innings pitched. Shields has shown that he could be a competent fifth starter on a contending team this season, so let’s hope he gets back on track tonight for some trade deadline value. Shields can eclipse 2,500 career innings with 6 1⁄3 tonight. Who knows — he might have a...
