Twitterpating: José Abreu extension?

And first-half monster Lucas Giolito leads the way in yet another category So, we did a few of these in 2018, and we’re going to try to bring back a news links feature on most days here at South Side Sox now. First off, true to form, a poll. First up, it’s Bob Nightengale at USA Today, meandering about with his usual bits and bites of league surveys and gut hunches. MLB trade rumors: 10 biggest questions for the trade deadlineA guide for what to expect – and not to expect – with baseball's trade deadline rapidly approaching. Pertinent to the White Sox is news — planted...
Royals Review Jul 16, 2019
Junis strikes out ten White Sox, leading the Royals to a 5-2 win.

Junis strikes out ten White Sox, leading the Royals to a 5-2 win.

Junis out-pitched Giolito. On the heels of their first series win of the second half, the Royals welcomed another divisional rival in the Chicago White Sox. Fueled by a strong outing from Jakob Junis, Kansas City dodged a late rally and came out victorious, 5-2. An opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of earned run average, Junis and Lucas Giolito squared off in the first of a four game set Monday night. However, despite the numbers, both pitchers dueled it out for the first three innings. Retiring the first six hitters, Giolito appeared to have no early struggles in his first start of...

White Sox stay cold and lose to the Royals, of all teams

White Sox stay cold and lose to the Royals, of all teams

The Oakland woes continued into Kansas City ... but at least Lucas Giolito didn’t lose his head It was not the usual dominant performance from Lucas Giolito against the Royals, but it was a quality start. And he definitely deserved better from his bats in a 5-2 loss in Kansas City. For the first three innings, Giolito looked like the pitcher that threw a scoreless inning in the All-Star Game: He retired all six batters in the first two innings, including two strikeouts. The third inning did bring a scare, as Nicky Lopez lined a double off of Giolito. The liner did break Giolito’s...

Your 2019 All-Star is back on the mound, as Lucas Giolito looks to right the ship after an embarrassing weekend of baseball It’s Lucas Giolito Day, and boy do the White Sox really need one. After the Sox were swept right out of the gate after the All-Star break, Giolito and a date with the Kansas City Royals will hopefully put the club back on track. Though pitching was not the whole problem in Oakland — Ivan Nova went six innings and allowed four runs on Friday while Reynaldo Lopez threw six innings and did not allow an earned run yesterday — the offense only scored five total runs...

White Sox 3, Cubs 1: At last, a few days of rest

White Sox 3, Cubs 1: At last, a few days of rest

That’s about the best I can give you after this one. I don’t get this team, I just don’t get it. Now it’s twice this year — and fortunately, the Cubs are done with the White Sox until 2020 — where they faced a guy who had dominated the rest of the league and crushed him, but in the other game faced someone who has been horrific against everyone but the Cubs and got absolutely nothing off him. How do you explain this? I can’t. Lucas Giolito this season vs Cubs2 starts 8.1 IP 12 ER 12.96 ERA vs everyone else15 starts 91.2 IP 23 ER 2.26 ERA— Christopher Kamka...

2019 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 89

2019 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 89

Cubs win second straight with 6-3 win over Giolito and the Sox The Cubs returned to Chicago, though they can’t yet say they are at home. With two games on the south side before the break, they found themselves at Guaranteed Rate Field. That one still just doesn’t really roll off of the tongue... For the second time this year, the Cubs beat Lucas Giolito. No sarcasm intended, it’s a shame if the Cubs cost him a Cy Young. The kid has had a great season and it’s a good story. That said, we’re not here for the good stories as much as the Cubs wins, so we’ll take ‘em any way we...

Lucas Giolito’s kryptonite puts up five runs in the fifth in a 6-3 South Siders loss

Lucas Giolito’s kryptonite puts up five runs in the fifth in a 6-3 South Siders loss

The Cubs commit three errors, but the White Sox couldn’t take advantage in a disappointing game As a 2019 All-Star and an early Cy Young Award candidate, Lucas Giolito couldn’t get the job done for the second time this year versus the Chicago Cubs. A disastrous fifth sealed the deal in a disappointing Chicago White Sox loss. With one out in the first, Kris Bryant drove home Javier Báez on a ball sent to left field; unfortunately, the sun hindered Eoy Jiménez from making the catch on what appeared to be a routine fly ball. This peculiar play set the tone for the rest of the game....

Lucas Giolito and the White Sox are full of vengeance as they compete against their same-city rival for the Crosstown Cup After a well-deserved day off for the Chicago White Sox, they are ready to win their third straight series, and a two-game sweep against the Chicago Cubs will ensure that feat. More importantly, a win tonight and tomorrow afternoon will bring the Crosstown Cup back to the South Side of Chicago. Lucas Giolito, for the second time this year, will pitch against Jon Lester. After a taxing first inning during the June 19 matchup, Giolito acquired his first lost in a string...

Had it all the way, folks

Had it all the way, folks

White Sox survive three-hour rain delay and the Twins, 4-3 The Chicago White Sox made it 39-42 for the first half of the season, and 7-8 in a long stretch against winning teams, with a 4-3 victory over the visiting Twinkies this afternoon. And that’s overcoming the fact a nearly three-hour rain delay meant starter Lucas Giolito had to leave the game after five innings of one-hit, 4 K, shutout ball ... all on just 68 pitches, 13 of those in one appearance by Marwin González. Giolito left the bullpen a 2-0 lead, thanks to this 403-foot shot to center by Yoán Moncada: Your browser does not...
