Let’s break down what a White Sox-Dodgers deal could actually look like

Sources: #Dodgers have contacted the #WhiteSox regarding first baseman Jose Abreu. He’s a .295 hitter with 146 home runs in 5 MLB seasons.

— Michael J. Duarte (@michaeljduarte) December 5, 2018

Well, well, well, is Jose Abreu about to leave, even though GM Rick Hahn indicated he was looking to add MLB pieces, not subtract? It is probably two years too late to get a top-level prospect haul for Abreu, but here we...

Hahn: South Side may appeal to big-name FAs

White Sox general manager Hahn certainly believes there's a clear path to selling big-ticket free agents on the White Sox, even coming off a 100-loss season and with the team on the North Side of town in the midst of a four-year postseason run, including a 2016 World Series championship.

Report: Dodgers have inquired about All-Star 1B Jose Abreu

Despite being linked to multiple star players this winter, the defending NL champion Los Angeles Dodgers have yet to reel in that big fish. It could come in the form of signing Bryce Harper or adding another front-line starting pitcher to go with Clayton Kershaw. For now, it appears that Los Angeles has its sights set on Chicago White Sox All-Star first baseman Joe Abreu, according to Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA. This wouldn’t be an acquisition at the level of the above-mentioned Harper,...

Farewell, Spencer Adams?

After he was left off the 40-man roster, the former top prospect could be gone in 2019

As it stands right now, the Chicago White Sox have 37 players on their 40-man roster, after re-acquiring Ian Clarkin, and non-tendering Matt Davidson and Avisaíl García. None of those three open slots were ticketed for Spencer Adams — especially after Jordan Stephens was added.

And hey, if the White Sox didn’t keep Davidson as a relief option, what chance did Adams have?

It’s not goodbye, it’s see you around

Having the opportunity to write about the White Sox in a space where White Sox fans regularly visit was a dream of mine long before there were things like fan blogs. I’ve wanted to write about baseball since I was 13 years old and I’ve been a White Sox fan for even longer. When I latched on with James Fegan and the guys five years and two blogs ago, I was thankful. During that time, I’ve grown as a writer and baseball analyst and also developed friendships that will last long beyond...

The dirty dozen

Bryce yourself: Harper may not be coming to Chicago

On Monday, Yahoo’s Tim Brown and Jeff Passan reported, with modest detail, upwards of a dozen teams descending on Las Vegas in advance of next week’s Winter Meetings. Their mission, to a one: Pitch woo at Bryce Harper, the 26-year-old megawatt star, with a contract covering, essentially, the rest of his playing days.

What ho, the Chicago White Sox are listed among the dozen!

The highest-arching of our 2018 offseason plans included some...
