White Sox: Tommy Kahnle vs Esteban Loaiza, Who broke out more?

White Sox reliever enjoying a surprising start to season, but is he having a more surprising start than a former Cy Young Award runner up? Over the past decade and a half, no pitcher on the White Sox has increased his production in comparison to the prior year the way Tommy Kahnle has.

Chicago White Sox: Matt Davidson and the future of third base

White Sox Minor League Update: June 21, 2017

Carson Fulmer’s struggles continue With an ugly outing against Gwinnett on Wednesday, Carson Fulmer’s struggles have now consumed more than half his season. First six starts: 5-1, 2.72 ERA, 39.2 IP, 35 H, 5 HR, 12 BB, 33 K, .697 OPS Last seven starts: 1-3, 7.59 ERA, 32 IP, 36 H, 6 HR, 23 BB, 16 K, .923 OPS Fulmer has only allowed one homer over his last five starts; that particular number has blown up due to one bad four-homer night, which ironically is the only time he’s gone six innings during this stretch. After running No. 1a with Reynaldo Lopez over the first five weeks of the...

Sox Century: June 21, 1917

Eddie Cicotte outdueled by Jim Bagby Eddie Cicotte’s up-and-down June found some momentum in the right direction when he threw a complete game against the Indians. He held them to just a run on five hits and a couple walks. Unfortunately, Cleveland’s Jim Bagby managed to be even tougher. The Indians struck for a quick run in the first inning on three soft batted balls -- an infield single, a chopper over the head of Cicotte, and a fielder’s choice that was an eyelash from being a 4-6-3 double play. The White Sox ace settled down after that, but his offense never unsettled...

Twins 4, White Sox 2: Score closer than the game

Twins 4, White Sox 2: Score closer than the game

Between the short start, multiple defensive lapses and suppressed offense, Minnesota should’ve won this one going away It seemed like the Twins scored more than four runs, not just because they figured out David Holmberg before he could make it two turns through the lineup, but because the White Sox played pretty poor defense behind him as well. Both those factors allowed the Twins to take the lead with a three-run third. Miguel Sano led off the inning with a homer on a 3-0 fastball to tie it, and then Tim Anderson couldn’t handle Robbie Grossman’s hard one-hopper for an error....

If you’re lamenting, baseball is already evolving

If you’re lamenting, baseball is already evolving

Three articles highlight difficulty in capturing any greater direction the game is taking On the same day Tom Verducci posted a hand-wringing piece about the amount of inaction in a game of baseball, the White Sox and Twins combined to score 16 runs on 28 hits. Not that it refutes Verducci’s larger point, but that’s probably one reason why baseball is prone to self-flagellation more than any other league. With usually 15 games every day, and few that draw a national audience, it’s difficult to get everybody seeing the same thing. This is what Verducci saw: The signature game of what...

Twins 9, White Sox 7: Holland knocked out in slugfest

Sox can’t find one more big hit, strand 14 baserunners In the top of the third inning, it looked like Ervin Santana was going to unravel. After surrendering a pair of one-out doubles, he gave up a pair of two-out homers. After the back-to-back shots by Avisail Garcia and Matt Davidson gave the White Sox a 4-2 lead, Santana bobbled Tim Anderson’s dribbler back to the mound multiple times for an error. Alas, Derek Holland definitely unraveled in the bottom of the inning. With one out, Holland allowed a walk, single, single and a monster 483-foot three-run shot by Kennys Vargas that gave...

The White Sox return to Chicago and take the opener against Cleveland After a tumultuous 8-6 road trip through Washington, New York and Boston, the White Sox took the longest train ride of the season back to Chicago, where they opened up a homestand against Cleveland after an off day. They returned to their winning ways in the series opener with a 3-2 victory over the Indians. They scored all their runs in the sixth inning, and a small-ball failure lit the way according to the Chicago Examiner: A pass to [Nemo] Leibold started the mess. [Buck] Weaver failed in an attempt to bunt, so atoned...

White Sox trade rumors: White Sox have what division leaders need

David Robertson still makes sense for Nationals, and Jose Quintana could come between Astros and Yankees Now that the draft is firmly last week’s news, we should start seeing trade rumors regain some of their front-page powers in short order, and the White Sox should be fairly prominent in the proceedings if Buster Olney is any indication. For instance, based on the ongoing fallout from the Nationals’ bullpen woes -- they lost on Monday after leading 6-0 — the David Robertson rumor maintains its popularity. In his ESPN Insider column, Olney is the latest to try to get the two sides to...

Regression sets in for Anthony Swarzak

Regression sets in for Anthony Swarzak

With Matt Albers burned into the White Sox’ recent memory, the question is how long it will last Every so often, I’m reminded that Anthony Swarzak inherited Matt Albers’ old number. One such occasion was Sunday, when Swarzak gave up back-to-back hits — and the go-ahead run — after relieving James Shields in the sixth inning. He then came out for the seventh and made a wacky play on a comebacker before giving up a single, which ended up scoring on Dan Jennings’ watch. Like Albers, Swarzak started his season with an impressive scoreless innings streak that came out of nowhere....
