José Abreu was the best of an overall lousy game from the South Siders


José Abreu’s two hits on Saturday earned him a .14 WPA, tops on the White Sox. Alex Gordon of the Kansas City Royals took the game MVP, with .20 WPA.


The Chicago White Sox appear to have started a totemistic relationship with one, single, metal logo chain, bestowed in the dugout on the most recent home run hitter. Nicky Delmonico, with his second in two days and fifth of the season, earned the chain...

Why bother? Royals 3, White Sox 1

Sister Mary Jo Sobieck stole the show with her first-pitch sinker, but Dylan Covey held his own Not that I need to tell you, but Saturday’s 3-1 Chicago loss to the Kansas City Royals had many of the hallmarks of White Sox horribleness. Let’s just briefly run them down, because I’m about ready to just start rooting for a 117-loss season, which is still theoretically possible on the the South Side. Whether even that would earn the White Sox the No. 1 pick in next year’s draft,...

Moncada remains confident despite struggles

After struggling at the plate this season, second baseman Yoan Moncada recently has tried to incorporate his speed to increase his avenues offensively. Moncada laid down a perfect bunt for a single Monday in Detroit and tried again during Friday's victory over the Royals.

After a difficult start in his career, the infielder’s bat is picking up steam with Great Falls

Under the Radar details players in the Chicago White Sox system who may have suffered setbacks, gotten lost in the shuffle, or just haven’t surfaced as significant prospects as of yet. Next up is Amado Nuñez, who has bounced back with Great Falls after a difficult season last year.

White Sox ride 7-run 7th, Delmonico's 5 RBIs

Nicky Delmonico and Jose Abreu each clubbed three-run homers in a seven-run seventh inning as the White Sox rallied to win the opener of a three-game set. Delmonico finished with a career-high five RBIs and made a stellar catch at the wall in the first inning. Jakob Junis was solid in his start for the Royals, but the bullpen labored late.

White Sox 9, Royals 3: Coming up sevens

Abreu, Delmonico both club three-run homers in decisive seven-run seventh For the first six innings of this game, it looked like we had a low-scoring affair on our hands. The Royals had managed a single three-run rally against James Shields, while the White Sox had managed to scrape across single runs in the fourth and sixth. In the bottom of the seventh, with the Sox down 3-2, lefty Tim Hill remained on the mound after finishing off the sixth in relief of Jakob Junis. In the moment right...

Williams has full confidence in Renteria, staff

It took Ken Williams one word, with a little extra energy for emphasis, to answer the following question when asked of him on Friday: Will manager Rick Renteria and his staff be able to run a good team pushing for the playoffs, such as the White Sox in 2020 or '21? "Absolutely," Williams told MLB.com.

August trade candidate James Shields makes another start against his former club

It’s a special night for James Shields, who’s making his 400th career appearance in the major leagues. As August winds down, he continues to be a waiver trade candidate for a club that really needs an innings eater. Shields will be opposed by Jakob Junis, who threw six innings of one-run ball against the Cardinals in his last start.

James Shields is scheduled to make his 400th career appearance (398th...

Goodbye, Hawk

A rather strange farewell tour wraps up in the season’s final six weeks

It’s almost over, friends.

Earlier this week, the White Sox detailed the final events of the “Hawk Harrelson Farewell Tour” (which, due to illness and family tragedies and an overall, surprising sense of overwhelming melancholy on the part of Hawkeroo, has wheezed and sputtered all summer), and the final leg has some kick.

Hawk: I Did It My Way

The debut of our book review series tackles the Hawkeroo, and his tendency to tawk and tawk and tawk

It’s been my experience that many of the regulars bellying up to the bar here at South Side Sox appreciate a good baseball read. We like our baseball in print almost as much as in-person.

Whether a gripping narrative history that helps bring the sport’s fascinating history alive or a new, innovative and interesting way of analyzing the game and its players, past and present, we’re...
