Value Survey: Game 146

Value Survey: Game 146

Tim Anderson establishes himself as the top surplus value player for the White Sox in 2018 With 90% of the season in the books, I suppose it’s time to revisit the value survey. At the traditional halfway point of the season, the Chicago White Sox enjoyed a small renaissance. In the two months since our All-Star break survey and now, the White Sox have trending more slightly positively in terms of value, with 12 batters and 14 pitchers increasing in surplus value (SV), eight batters and 11 pitchers moving in the negative direction.

TA saves the day, as White Sox prevail, 4-2

It took 12 innings, but the White Sox escaped Kansas City with a win So, you expect a game between teams who have a combined 105-184 on the season to drag on, tied for several innings. And it wouldn’t surprise you that not one, but both teams, would strand the bases filled in the seventh inning. But one Chicago White Sox player stood and delivered when the smoke had cleared after 12 long innings on Wednesday: Tim Anderson. The shortstop clobbered a two-out, 1-0 fastball high and tight, bringing home Adam Engel and putting the White Sox up, 4-2. Your browser does not support HTML5...

Angels sidestep 14 whiffs, sweep Sox, 1-0

Tying run reaches third in the ninth for Chicago, but advances no farther With the White Sox down 1-0, Yoán Moncada on second base and two out, Tim Anderson lifted a soft liner to left. For a second, it seemed that Justin Upton would be too slow to the ball, and Chicago would tie the game. Cue the Hawk: DAD-GUMMIT That tells you all you need to know about today’s game, a 1-0 loss to Angels, as Upton slid and caught Anderson’s ball to retire the side and extinguish a rare White Sox chance to extend the game. Andrew Heaney was devastating for the Angels, spinning seven innings with just...

White Sox look to Tim Anderson to spark offense against Angels

Looking for instant offense, the White Sox are leading off Tim Anderson Sunday against Angels left-hander Andrew Heaney. The Sox need a win to avoid a sweep in the weekend series at Guaranteed Rate Field. While Anderson isn’t an on-base guy, this season he has done a good job getting the offense...

White Sox walk off Tigers in the ninth; Lopez turns in another strong performance

Palka and Davidson lift White Sox into third place in the division! Is it okay if I admit I’m having a blast watching this current White Sox team? Today’s victory was yet another example of the fire Michael Kopech has lit in this team with his recent call-up. That has to be it, right? I wonder what would happen if Eloy Jimenez received a promotion, but more about that later. The Sox recorded just two hits through the first eight innings — one on a leadoff home run from Nicky Delmonico and the other on a Tim Anderson double. Down 2-1 in the ninth inning, the White Sox got a home...

Revenge of Hawk: White Sox crush Carmines, 8-0

Tim Anderson gets his wish, with a You can put it on the board, YES! on Harrelson’s big day Well, gotta say, Hawk was in rare form today, and perhaps something about the mojo of his official Hawk Harrelson Day helped the Chicago White Sox whitewash the Boston Red Sox, 8-0, in a laugher. Hawk was fun in the booth, with pal/son/a#(*@&! A.J. Pierzynski, swapping stories that were injected with some new life. But the important story is that while this combination kept the game flowing pretty well — one sole digression by Hawk, into athletes speaking out on politics aside — the White Sox...

White Sox activate Welington Castillo from DL but don't start him against Red Sox

With Avisail Garcia bothered by soreness in his right knee, the White Sox are playing Ryan LaMarre in right field Sunday and hitting LaMarre leadoff against Red Sox lefty Brian Johnson. Tim Anderson was in the leadoff spot Saturday but struck out four times in the 6-1 loss. He’s been dropped to...
