Sox Century: Aug. 18, 1917

White Sox overcome six errors to retake first place Today, the White Sox had as many errors as hits. They had six hits. Which meant they had six more errors than the Philadelphia Athletics. And yet they still won. The White Sox didn’t make it easy on themselves. They took a 3-1 lead after one and a 4-2 lead after three, but they needed a tie-breaking sac fly by Ray Schalk in the eighth to decide the game because of the poor defense, especially from Swede Risberg. The errors started piling up for Risberg at this point in the season. He committed three in this one alone, including two in...

White Sox 4, Rangers 3: Nicky Delmonico the difference

White Sox 4, Rangers 3: Nicky Delmonico the difference

Two homers -- including an inside-the-park one — help White Sox snap losing streak Nicky Delmonico’s charmed season continued with his second two-homer game in three tries, and this one was with feeling. The first homer put the White Sox ahead 3-2. The second homer put the White Sox ahead 4-3. And it was an inside-the-park job, too. Delmonico helped the White Sox return some heartache to the Rangers in the eighth inning when his deep drive to right hit the wall just before Nomar Mazara did. The ball returned toward the infield, though, while Mazara laid on the warning track in pain....

The White Sox’ 40-man roster crunch is coming

The White Sox’ 40-man roster crunch is coming

Who wins the game of roster spots? We’ve talked a bit about how this offseason will see the White Sox scrambling a bit with their 40-man roster. One of the good problems of having a deep farm system is that you’ve got a lot of talent, the kind that other teams want. Unfortunately for the team, MLB has some rules that prevent them from simply warehousing players in the minors. One of those is the Rule 5 draft, which permits teams to select certain non-40-man roster players from other teams. Of course, as we’ve seen with Dylan Covey, there are restrictions which generally (I see you...

White Sox Minor League Update: Aug. 17, 2017

Michael Kopech is a big deal in Birmingham, which now has an offense Nobody’s going to do for the Birmingham Barons what Michael Jordan’s season in Double-A did, but Barons broadcaster Curt Bloom says Michael Kopech has brought some of that big-event buzz to Regions Field this season. “Jordan-esque,” Bloom said. “Nothing will beat Jordan. LeBron could come down. But this reminds me of it. It triggers it. A jolt. “Nothing stirred like this guy has and I do say, and I think Kopech will tell you the same thing, a big chunk of the reason is we have social media. We didn’t have...

Rangers 9, White Sox 8: Texas still painful

Rangers 9, White Sox 8: Texas still painful

Reynaldo Lopez blows 4-0 lead, then leaves with sore side to start more problems The last time the White Sox played the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park, they limped out of Arlington having lost a series with a painful pair of games. It might be hindsight-fueled narrative to say those games reversed the flow on the 2016 White Sox, but the calendar tells that story pretty well. This year isn’t off to any easier a start. The White Sox led 4-0 with an efficient Reynaldo Lopez through 2 1⁄2 innings, but the Rangers reset the score while forcing Lopez to throw 42 pitches, and he ended up...

The White Sox fall out of first place after a 12-inning loss to Philadelphia With the longest road trip of the season in the books, the White Sox got a travel day to return home to Chicago, where they could recover from a 23-game road trip with a 21-game homestand, starting with a visit from the cellar-dwelling Philadelphia Athletics. But the A’s took three of four from the White Sox the last time they were in Chicago, and they opened this series by pestering the Sox again with a 9-7 victory in 12 innings. It was a costly loss for a few reasons. For one, the A’s made the Sox use four...

Carlos Rodon is becoming Mr. August

Carlos Rodon is becoming Mr. August

As the season gets late, Carlos Rodon gets stronger. Not starting his 2017 season until June 28th, Carlos Rodon has reached his midseason point after last night's start against the Los Angeles Dodgers. With nine starts on hand and projected for eight more starts to end the season, Rodon's performance is getting noticeably steadier. A much-needed sigh of relief for those that got quite nervous how Rodon's season began. Since his July 25th start against the Chicago Cubs where 11 of the 12 outs Rodon recorded were strikeouts, we've seen a pitcher make the necessary adjustments to get deeper...

Terrerobytes: Trials, errors for White Sox bullpen

Terrerobytes: Trials, errors for White Sox bullpen

Plus: White Sox come out on top (in fan survey), shifts get harder to assess and more On Tuesday, I looked at the White Sox bullpen and thought that Juan Minaya, Aaron Bummer and Jake Petricka were going to be the most compelling relievers remaining, if not all for fun reasons. Rick Renteria’s bullpen usage over the two-game series with the Dodgers? Juan Minaya, Aaron Bummer and Jake Petricka for two games apiece (and Gregory Infante for an out). So far, no surprises. Minaya took the loss in Game 1 when he gave up a leadoff single in his second inning of work, but he got the job done in...

White Sox: Closer Role Will Remain Up In The Air For Now

The White Sox are without a closer after trading Tyler Clippard. No relief pitcher on the roster has a save this season. The Chicago White Sox once again find themselves without a closer.

Eloy Jimenez and Zack Collins homer in their Birmingham debuts Eloy Jimenez and Zack Collins wasted no time getting acclimated to Birmingham. Both players made Regions Field look small in their debuts with the Barons. Jimenez went 2-for-4 with a homer and a double, and Collins brushed off two strikeouts with a no-doubter of his own during Birmingham’s 9-4 victory over Montgomery. Here’s the Barons’ broadcast feed for Jimenez’s blast and double...

Dodgers 5, White Sox 4: Three pitchers, no closers in ninth

Jake Petricka caps off another bullpen collapse for second straight night It would’ve been nice to see the White Sox rewarded with a win over the mighty Los Angeles Dodgers thanks to features like seven gutsy innings by Carlos Rodon and a two-homer game by Nicky Delmonico. Instead, the White Sox gave us a cartoonish version of the likely outcome from sending a three-headed closer to face a team that’s 49-9 since early June. Without anybody resembling a high-leverage reliever, Rick Renteria tried protecting a 4-2 lead playing the matchups. Gregory Infante started the inning with a...

Jerry Reinsdorf checks in on White Sox rebuild

Jerry Reinsdorf checks in on White Sox rebuild

First interview of season sounds familiar, for better or for worse Jerry Reinsdorf gave his first interview of the season, and to the guy he usually talks to in order to express his opinions -- USA Today’s Bob Nightengale. He’s just more than a source close to the White Sox/with knowledge of the situation this time. I’ll give Nightengale credit for a riveting story, in that it had me talking to my monitor while reading it. While Reinsdorf hasn’t come out and discussed his attitude about the rebuilding, a lot of it sounds familiar, because Rick Hahn has accurately represented the...

White Sox Minor League Update: Aug. 15, 2017

Zack Collins and Eloy Jimenez make their Double-A debuts tonight The White Sox made a couple of their biggest minor-league moves of the season on Tuesday by promoting Zack Collins and Eloy Jimenez to Birmingham. The Barons were idle on Tuesday, so they’ll get their first taste of Double-A tonight. Jimenez was probably too good for High-A before the White Sox acquired him, and he was definitely too good after joining Winston-Salem. Collins finally forced the issue in August, hitting .343/.500/.686 with just eight strikeouts over 48 plate appearances after spending most of the year dealing...
