South Side Morning 5: The Best of Yoan

The White Sox have lost 9 of 11 games and only recently snapped an eight-game losing streak. They have the third worst winning percentage in baseball. There’s a whole lot of bad worth discussing in their games, a lot of which ultimately doesn’t matter. But a weekend split of a four-game series against the Oakland Athletics provided us with several bright spots. So let’s focus on those, shall we? 1. Imploring a player to be more aggressive when he has the second most strikeouts and...

Carlos Rodon Picks Up 1st Win in 10 Months

Former NC State All-American pitcher Carlos Rodon picked up his first win of the 2018 season today. In fact, he picked up his first win in the past 10 months, leading the White Sox to a 10-3 victory over the Athletics. After missing the first two months of the season recovering from shoulder surgery, Rodon returned on June 9th, and his first three 3 starts were mediocre. Today’s start was far from mediocre. It was excellent. Rodon pitched 8 innings (tied a career high), with 69 of the 99...

Most Essential White Sox Vote: Round 36

Presumably, this young southpaw will be back on the South Side soon

Congratulations, Aaron Bummer, you are the 35th most essential White Sox player! It won’t get you a quicker call-up from Charlotte, but hey, it’s something.

Bummer earned 19% (13 of 67 votes) in very tight voting today. The southpaw was named the 17th most important member of the White Sox roster earlier this season, earning 33% of the 17th vote.

Moncada homers, drives in 6 in win over A's

Yoan Moncada, the No. 1 prospect per MLB Pipeline for much of the 2017 season, turned in a performance during Sunday's 10-3 White Sox victory over Oakland most White Sox fans had been waiting for over the past month.

White Sox clobber A’s 10-3; Rodon and Moncada impress

Not a whole lot wrong with the effort today

Well that was fun, huh?

Contributors to future contending Chicago White Sox teams certainly showed up in today’s 10-3 victory.

Sox starting pitcher Carlos Rodon was magnificent, going a solid eight innings of two-run ball. He struck out only three, but induced a lot of soft contact off the bats of a potent Oakland A’s lineup.

Rodon allowed seven hits, but most importantly, did not walk a batter. He had great control throughout the game and...

White Sox prospect Eloy Jimenez already impressing at Triple-A

Just a few days after he was promoted to Triple-A Charlotte, Eloy Jimenez is already making his impact felt for the Chicago White Sox Triple-A affiliate.In just his fourth game for the Charlotte Knights, the 21-year-old outfielder clobbered his first career Triple-A home run. In the first inning, Jimenez drilled a ball over the wall in center field at BB&T Ballpark in Charlotte. It’s especially impressive given the center field wall at BB&T Stadium is over 410 feet to dead center.The young...

Carlos Rodon gets the start for the White Sox today. Rodon hasn’t been his best in his last two starts but has gone at least five or more innings in both. The big lefty will face a tough Athletics lineup that is no stranger to the long ball. Paul Blackburn gets the nod for the Athletics. Blackburn is 1-1 with an 8.03 ERA in three starts this season. He’s posted a 1.54 WHIP with a 5.11...

Are the Chicago White Sox the fastest team in baseball?

The Chicago White Sox just broke an eight game losing streak Friday night, and then proceeded to blow a 5-0 lead to the Oakland Athletics on Saturday. They have the third worst record in MLB (25-51), ahead of only Baltimore (23-52) and Kansas City (23-53). They’ve now had four losing streaks of five or more games and are closer to the bottom than the top in most major stat categories. So yeah, the White Sox are bad. Here’s the thing though. There’s an oddity with this team, but one...

Most Essential White Sox Vote: Round 35

Player-coach, innings eater, trade fodder ... whatever you call him, he’s our No. 34 Congratulations, James Shields, you are the 34th most essential White Sox player! Shields made a pretty shocking leap, from 6% last ballot to 41% (36 of 87 votes) this time around. A lotta fans of grunting, I suppose.

Sox shaken and stirred in loss

Rookie Nick Martini, sun, set back Sox, 7-6

So, who expected a loss after the White Sox went crooked-number crazy in the first and led, 5-0?

Anyone ... anyone? C’mon, somebody did. Gamethreads fast and furiously tread into dour territory these days, so, somebody, fess up.

Well, indeed it did happen: A 5-0 lead in the first inning, fueled by a two-out, three-run homer from birthday boy Tim Anderson (his 25th, for those of you ready to give up on a guy projected for 4 WAR this season) turned...

White Sox can't hold early lead as Covey exits

The White Sox wasted a five-run lead and dropped a 7-6 decision to the A's on Saturday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field. But they lost more than the game when starting pitcher Dylan Covey exited in the fifth inning with right hip soreness.

A farewell, to one of my favorite White Sox fans

Later today, there’s a funeral for a five-decade White Sox fan. That in itself is not worth a story. There are millions of White Sox fans, after all. But this White Sox fan is special to me: my mother, Carole. My mom grew up in north-side Highwood, but I don’t believe my mother every really followed sports until she married my dad, also a Highwood native. (My dad determined his White Sox fandom at an early age: He liked the little-guy shortstop on the team, Chico Carrasquel, and when the...

Giolito's gem helps Sox end slide at 8, split DH

Lucas Giolito turned in his best start of a tough 2018 season, the White Sox ended an eight-game losing streak and Friday night's victory over the A's at Guaranteed Rate Field salvaged a doubleheader split and gave Chicago a much-needed good feeling going into Saturday afternoon's contest. Giolito held Oakland to four earned runs over 7-plus innings and struck out seven. Matt Olson homered and had two RBIs for the A's.
