2019 DSL White Sox All-Stars

Mystery man: Benyamin Bailey managed to tear up the Domincan Summer League for 55 games without attracting a single still photographer. | @TylerJSpicer Led by Benyamin Bailey, the club’s incredible turnaround gives fans a lot to hope for in the future Welcome to a bit of a new year-end feature here at South Side Sox, postseason affiliate All-Star teams. In 2018, we introduced the MVP concept to the Minor League Updates, but didn’t do anything with the data. This year, I compiled the MVP votes for each affiliate game, ranked performances in order of value (on a day when seven...

Worst Week Ever: And it’s just Tuesday for José Ruiz. | Jordan Johnson-USA TODAY Sports Huge comeback, two leads in extras simply are not enough in 9-8 loss Wow. Was tonight’s game a trippy film from two decades ago, or another heartbreaking loss, a 16th in 21 games now fully forming a Chicago White Sox death march deep into September?

Twins win, 5-3

Bad ReyLo: The fact that it wasn’t as bad as some other López starts is small recompense. | Photo by Hannah Foslien/ Really, it was all about what you expected Well, the biggest news from this game turned out to be the premature end to the season for Lucas Giolito, who has a mild lat strain. But in the main event of the day, the White Sox lost to the Twins, 5-3.
