Podcast: 2017 Season Review

We hand out our White Sox season awards and make our postseason predictions. Episode 155 is now available. Here is this week’s rundown: After Carson Fulmer’s impressive finish to September we ponder if a role in the starting rotation is available in 2018. With the White Sox drafting fourth overall in the 2018 MLB Draft, we noticed that Sox fans should be more worried where the Royals comp picks fall for Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, and Lorenzo Cain than who the Tigers could pick #1 overall. Just like our MiLB Awards, we had readers and listeners vote for the following season awards:...

Royals 8, White Sox 2: Jose Abreu reaches milestone

Royals 8, White Sox 2: Jose Abreu reaches milestone

He’s the third player in MLB history, joining Albert Pujols and Joe DiMaggio, as the first player with 25 homers and 100 RBIs in each of his first four seasons. *That was the chief highlight, as the White Sox lost a Dylan Covey start....
