Podcast: Hard to Watch

A breakdown of the current White Sox minor leagues with larry and guest Danny Rockett to preview this week’s Crosstown Classic.

Episode 145 is available for your listening pleasure. Here is this week’s rundown:

Man, are the Chicago White Sox hard to watch. Losers of nine straight games, it doesn’t help matters with Rick Renteria’s bunting habits. Or Tim Anderson continuing to struggle. We discuss both topics and recap Yoan Moncada’s first series performance. [16:10] With the...

White Sox secure a big series victory over Boston with big day by Happy Felsch

After a lackluster start to their 18-game homestand, Happy Felsch and the White Sox offense brought it to a rousing finale. Felsch’s four-hit attack got the best of Ernie Shore, and Lefty Williams and Eddie Cicotte were able to make the early surge hold up.

The 5-3 victory gave the White Sox a 3-1 edge in the series, and allowed them to close out their homestand with an 11-6 record (there was also a tie) before...

Eloy Jimenez is back, and he makes his presence felt

If you’re looking for White Sox-related entertainment that’s easier to watch than actual White Sox baseball, I recommend giving Eloy Jimenez some of your time.

After a foul ball off his foot caused him to leave Friday’s game early and limited him to pinch-hit duty on Saturday, Jimenez eased back into a full day’s work by DHing on Sunday.

And goodness, he did some work.

Jimenez went 5-for-6 with a homer and two doubles during a...

South Side Morning 5: The White Sox are very bad

. The White Sox spent the weekend in lovely Kansas City, stewing in triple-digit weather as they got swept by the Royals. Those three losses make it nine in a row for a White Sox team that truly looks like it’s tanking. Just as was predicted at the start of the season, the team wouldn’t lose all that many games when they still held onto pieces like Jose Quintana, Todd Frazier, and David Robertson. That mostly held up. What was also predicted at the start of the season was that the...

White Sox 4-run frame isn't enough vs. Royals

Brandon Moss hit a go-ahead single in the ninth to give the Royals a 5-4 walk-off win and a three-game sweep of the White Sox on Sunday afternoon at Kauffman Stadium.

Royals 5, White Sox 4: Still winless in second half

Whit Merrifield’s big game helps send Sox to ninth straight loss

As the old saying goes when playing the Kansas City Royals, “After Mike Moustakas, Eric Hosmer, Lorenzo Cain, Sal Perez and maybe Alex Gordon, you can’t let Whit Merrifield beat you.”

The White Sox paid no heed to that time-tested adage. Merrifield hit a pair of homers — including a game-tying shot in the eighth -- and made a couple of fine defensive plays, which help set up a walk-off single by Brandon Moss. The Sox...

In My Words: Moncada, White Sox perfect fit

This has been one of the best years of my life. This year, I have experienced a lot of emotions and happiness. This year, I've learned a ton, and I've developed as a person and as a professional.

Melky looking for longer stay with White Sox

Melky Cabrera's stay in Chicago could wind up shorter if a contending team pursues the valuable veteran before the non-waiver Trade Deadline on July 31 or even in August. But the soon-to-be 33-year-old Cabrera doesn't want to leave the White Sox -- not now or even after his contract expires.

Moncada set for first taste of Sox-Cubs rivalry

Knowledge possessed by Yoan Moncada concerning the Cubs-White Sox rivalry seems to be fairly limited. The information possessed by the White Sox second baseman, making his series debut on Monday, also sounds to be spot-on accurate.

Royals offer tips for building a rebuilding

Given that the Royals successfully capitalized on the build-baseball’s-best-farm-system formula, they’re a good team to talk to about the White Sox’ recent spate of acquisitions. Dan Hayes did so, and the various members of the Kansas City organization gave their recollections of the different stages.

That said, the Royals aren’t a perfect match since they built most of their farm system through the draft due to an ugly eight-year stretch....

Engel credits batting practice for 3-star catch

The catch that White Sox center fielder Adam Engel made to take away extra bases from Eric Hosmer in the sixth inning of Saturday night's 7-2 loss to the Royals was made possible by Engel's batting practice work.

Reb Russell throws a four-hitter to beat Boston

Having overcome any arm problems in a complete-game victory over the Washington Senators back on July 14, Reb Russell proved able to answer the bell, so the White Sox again turned to him after a 15-inning tie that required three pitchers the day before.

And once again, Russell exceeded expectations. This time, he threw a four-hit shutout against the defending champs, “pitching as stylish a game of ball as he has turned out in a couple of...

Royals 7, White Sox 2: The bullpen of the immediate future

With two relievers out and more on the way, blown leads are going to happen frequently

Dan Jennings and Anthony Swarzak threw four innings between them on Friday, so Rick Renteria wasn’t going to go to them first with four more innings to pick up in relief of Mike Pelfrey tonight.

Instead, he went to David Holmberg after Pelfrey walked Lorenzo Cain to start the inning. Holmberg survived a lashed Eric Hosmer line drive to left center because Adam Engel made a brilliant sprinting, leaping...

Prospect Lopez pushing to join White Sox

Right-hander Reynaldo Lopez soon might force the White Sox hand on a promotion to the Major League club just as second baseman Yoan Moncada did before him with Triple-A Charlotte.

Sporcle Saturday: Down on the farm

Grab your pitchfork and get to work.

With the massive injection of talent into the White Sox minor league system, there’s never been a better time to pay attention to what’s going on down on the farm. Over the years, the Sox have usually fluctuated between 3 and 7 teams, all over the country and even in Canada.

Today’s mission, should you choose to accept it: name the cities or regions the White Sox have been affiliated with since 1963. Why 1963? I’ll let John Cronin elaborate:

Reynaldo Lopez and Jordan Guerrero show why they need promotions

Given that the White Sox have already called up most Charlotte relievers worth auditioning, it makes sense that they’re looking for relief depth elsewhere to fill in all the innings required over the last two-plus months. They acquired Tyler Clippard from the Yankees in the Tommy Kahnle deal, and now Tacoma Rainiers broadcaster Mike Curto said two more are coming Charlotte’s way, at least temporarily:

Moncada's triple clears bases for 1st Sox hit
