White Sox rumors: Interest from Pirates shows Jose Quintana’s wide appeal

White Sox rumors: Interest from Pirates shows Jose Quintana’s wide appeal

Buster Olney says Pittsburgh has been “working hard” trying to make a deal with Chicago Because the Jose Quintana market has been a slowly developing one, we’ve had plenty of opportunities to weigh the reported candidates, turning each such post into a “Previously on South Side Sox.” If you’re just tuning in, the Astros have been the perfect match in terms of farm system headliners, depth and present-day need, but they keep coming up with reasons why it wouldn’t work. Or at least Dave Cameron does, leaning heavily on isolated stats and faith in pitchers with durability issues....

Early returns in Hall of Fame voting finally encouraging for Tim Raines

Early returns in Hall of Fame voting finally encouraging for Tim Raines

Public ballots giving former White Sox table-setter the cushion he’ll need to gain entry in final year Last year, the White Sox tallied another “Chicago, A.L.” on a Hall of Fame plaque. Sure, it was Ken Griffey Jr., who played only 41 of his 2,671 MLB games in Chicago, but it counts nevertheless. Tim Raines could make it two years in a row, and the White Sox shouldn’t feel nearly as sheepish about this Cooperstown celebration. Raines, who scored runs by the bunches as a table-setter for the powerhouse White Sox offenses of the early 1990s, is on pace to clear the 75-percent bar...

White Sox rumors: Yankees might be what Jose Quintana trade market needs

White Sox rumors: Yankees might be what Jose Quintana trade market needs

Chris Sale rumor mill didn’t accelerate until outside team stepped up Jose Quintana and Chris Sale should be comparable pitchers, at least as far as the trade market is concerned. What Quintana lacks in start-to-start dominance, he makes up for with an extra year on his contract. “Should” is the operative word. Based on the chatter, it’s likely that Sale has that je ne sais quoi that executives can’t get out of their mind, while Quintana doesn’t quite let imaginations run wild in the same fashion. Regardless, they’re close enough that the demand should follow a similar...

MLB Draft: Three players for the Chicago White Sox to target

MLB Draft: Three players for the Chicago White Sox to target

This week, MLBPipeline.com posted the 50 best prospects in the upcoming draft. As usual, they know who the best players are, but you can bet that 12 to 20 players not on this list will go in the top 50 in June. When the Chicago White Sox drafted Tim Anderson back in 2013, he was on nobodies “Top 100 list” in December. Last year I wrote a fan post in April listing players that were not on the top 50 list. This is what they missed: 1) # 9 Matt Manning 2) #15 Alex Kirloff 3) #17 Forest Whitley 4) #20 Gavin Lux 5) #22 Wil Craig 6) #31 Anthony Kay 7) #39 Anfernee Grier 8) #40 Joey...

MLB Draft: New voluntary MRI program could be a difference maker

MLB Draft: New voluntary MRI program could be a difference maker

College starting pitching is the strength of next year's draft class, and MLB's new voluntary MRI program could determine who gets selected first. The Major League Baseball amateur draft is still 175 days away, but for Chicago White Sox fans enjoying watching the rebuilding process unfold, it’s understandable to look ahead to wonder what’s next. The consensus is this upcoming 2017 draft class greatest strength will be college starting pitching. Especially from the SEC conference with pitchers Alex Faedo (Florida), Kyle Wright (Vanderbilt), Tanner Houck (Missouri), and Alex Lange (LSU)...
