South Side Sox Third Annual Veterans’ HOF Election: No Dice

Nuccio DiNuzzo/Chicago Tribune/Tribune News Service via The ballot, both in our election and the BBWAA veterans’ votes, is too stacked; we’re going to remedy that. After finding some modest success electing candidates in our first two Veterans’ elections (Minnie Miñoso in 2019, Dick Allen in 2020 — no coincidence, perhaps, both tipping the scale as White Sox), we were shut out in this third election, as no candidate could hurdle the 75% bar. Billy Pierce fell six votes short, while the closest non-White Sox candidate was Lou Whitaker, who polled at just 55%....

Wynn and Smith were among the final pieces acquired for the franchise that would win the pennant in 1959....

“We’ve Got Players at Home”

“We’ve Got Players at Home”

Announcing the debut of “the O’Keefe,” available in both second base and right field models. As December approaches and hot stove season is keeping MLB fans warm, Chicago remains ice cold. The White Sox big “splashes” in the free agency pool have been keeping Craig Kimbrel, signing Kendall Graveman and signing Leury García to a three-year deal. Just ignore the need for ANY depth in right field, second base, another starting pitcher, perhaps a backup catcher and whatever hole I’m likely missing. The White Sox don’t need Marcus Semien. We have Marcus Semien at...
