Frank Thomas weighs in on Hawk Harrelson, White Sox rebuild, Jose Abreu

Hawk Harrelson gave Frank Thomas the nickname — “The Big Hurt” — that helped make him a household name, and that was one of memories foremost on Thomas’ mind as he prepared to share a booth with the White Sox broadcast legend on Sunday. “I've been in with him a couple of times, a few innings, stuff...

Indians beat White Sox 5-2; Sox offense struggles in series finale...

Carlos Rodon said he knows he has to be better after today’s game. The Chicago White Sox could not grab a series victory against the AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians in an afternoon matinee on the South Side this afternoon. The game got off to an ominous start when Francisco Lindor took Carlos Rodon deep on the third pitch of the game. Catcher and .423 hitter Kevan Smith wanted the ball inside, but Rodon left it over the heart of the plate, and Lindor didn’t miss it. Jose Abreu responded in the bottom-half of the inning with the only runs the Sox would score on the day. He...

Is Jose Abreu untouchable?

Is Jose Abreu untouchable?

The unofficial captain can stay with the rebuild — or be moved by July 30 I’m a member of the large contingency that prefers to see Chicago White Sox slugger Jose Abreu stay on the South Side. Through June 11, Abreu is on a pace for a .295/.365/.520 season, with 26 homers, 64 doubles (which would tie him with George Burns for second all-time in a single season) and 98 RBIs. Abreu is arbitration-eligible after this season, and will be eligible for free agency after the 2019 season. There’s a concern whether his skills will decline by the time the White Sox reach their competitive...

Red Sox beat White Sox 4-2; good first outing for Mr. Rodon

A lot of positives from Carlos Rodon’s first outing from shoulder surgery Today’s game certainly started off the way the Chicago White Sox wanted. The first three batters reached in the first inning for the Sox, highlighted by a Jose Abreu rocket off the Green Monster. The ball would have been out at The Rate, but Abreu took the RBI (really should have been two — Jose Rondon didn’t read it great). Kevan Smith added an RBI groundout to put the Sox ahead 2-0 early. Then the bottom of the first inning happened, and well, it didn’t go so hot. Carlos Rodon, making his first start...

White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu comfortable playing in the shadows

The only question for Jose Abreu is: Why? After four-plus years of playing on sub-.500 teams, after two months of playing on the worst team in baseball and perhaps the worst in franchise history, and knowing he’ll likely be facing three to four more years of losing, why does Abreu want to stay...
