White Sox: Potential Free Agent Options for Upcoming Offseason

White Sox in position to add low-cost veterans to team this upcoming offseason to complement a young core of talented players on the South Side. With offseason moves fast approaching, it makes sense to talk about potential free agent targets for the Chicago White Sox.

Sporcle Saturday: Long bombs

Sporcle Saturday: Long bombs

Who’s hit the longest dingers since ‘06? Today’s Sporcle is a direct riff on Jim’s great article from Thursday. Should you choose to accept this mission, you’ll be asked to name the White Sox players who have socked the longest home runs since 2006. One note, however: I pulled the data using ESPN’s hit tracker, so the distances don’t match up with some of the names using Statcast. I wanted to get as big a list as possible, though, which is why I went with the hit tracker. Good luck! Quiz Parameters As always, last names accepted in addition to full names. There are a lot of...

White Sox: Scott Feldman Could Be Solid Free Agent Acquisition

White Sox will need another veteran in its starting rotation for next season. Could free agent hurler be a good fit on the South Side in 2018? The Chicago White Sox won’t spend big this offseason for free agents, but they will need to fill holes for next season in their starting rotation.

White Sox: Zack Collins Progressing Well in Minor Leagues

Zack Collins had a strong season in the minors. The White Sox 7th ranked prospect hit 19 home runs in 113 games. Zack Collins looks like he has all the tools to be an offensive threat in the bigs, but it’s his defense that needs more work.

White Sox: Can Adam Engel Develop Into Above Average Outfielder?

White Sox rookie outfielder made some spectacular catches in center field this past season, but he struggled offensively. Does he have a low ceiling in MLB?

The five longest White Sox home runs of 2017

The five longest White Sox home runs of 2017

Jose Abreu makes a run at a third consecutive team title As the old saying goes, a juiced ball lifts all boats. The White Sox improved upon their home run total in 2017, flipping the last two numbers with a rise from 168 to 186. In 2016, 1688 homers was good for 13th in the American League. Had they hit 186, they would have crept into ninth. But only a year later, 186 homers is only good for ... 13th in the American League. The Sox would have needed to hit 200 homers just to sneak into the top 10. So the White Sox weren’t able to take any special advantage of the conditions, but they...

White Sox: James Shields Had Better Finish to 2017 Season Than 2016

The top 11 White Sox winners of 2017

The top 11 White Sox winners of 2017

Comebacks aplenty, especially at home For a 67-win season, it was surprisingly difficult to limit the White Sox’ best games list to 10. The abnormally high amount of comebacks and walk-offs gave me a list of 18 games or so to consider. I whittled it down to the round number, but then there was an 11th I wanted to talk about, and I have the space for it. Still, I had to be relatively picky. For instance, the White Sox’ eight-run eighth on May 14 against the Padres didn’t make the cut, even with Todd Frazier pantsing Wil Myers. This one would have ranked higher if the Sox weren’t...

Mid-October White Sox fall ball update

All the White Sox prospects besides Eloy Jimenez are working on things The Arizona Fall League season is five days old, but for the first time in the blogging era, it’s not where the eyes are on the White Sox farm system. The rebuild has instead resulted in a newfound focus on the instructional league. The instructional league is like spring training for the postseason, but with even fewer discouraging words. Most players look great in instructs. A player seldom looks overmatched or awful in Arizona, and if he is, he’s probably working on something. That’s how it should be. They’re...

Sox Century: Oct. 15, 1917

The White Sox win the World Series with the help of some memorable Giant mistakes The White Sox won one and lost one Oct. 13. They beat the Giants in Game 5 to take a 3-2 lead in the World Series, but they lost a coin flip to host Game 7. If the White Sox were going to win it all, they’d have to do it in New York. The good news? They had two chances to win one game, and so Pants Rowland managed accordingly. Eddie Cicotte had been the team’s undisputed ace, but Rowland went to his other horse, Red Faber, for Game 6. Faber had only pitched two innings the prior game, while Cicotte went...

Sporcle Saturday: White Sox Postseason Home Runs

Sporcle Saturday: White Sox Postseason Home Runs

Who’s hit a HR in the postseason for the Sox? Watching the playoffs this week, I got to thinking about how home runs in the postseason have a different quality about them than they do in the regular season. This, of course, makes sense: in the postseason, every moment is magnified such that when a big event like a home run does occur, the response is more dramatic than it might otherwise be during a regular season game. Your quest for this week: name the nineteen batters in White Sox history (34 instances total) who have hit at least one home run during the postseason. Good luck! Quiz...
