On this day 39 years ago, native Chicagoan Fred Lynn [right] clobbered the first (and still only) grand slam in All-Star history, at the 50th anniversary game at Comiskey Park.

Milestone All-Star wins for the AL, 50 years apart

1933

The first-ever All-Star Game was played at Comiskey Park. The White Sox won a coin flip with the Cubs for the right to host the game that was the idea of Chicago Tribune sports editor Arch Ward. The American League won the game, 4-2, thanks to a home run...

Two rookie league wins? You betcha, with some sweet performances within

Haven’t checked the rosters to see if there are like 48 players on the ACL White Sox roster, but that must be the case if these young and relatively vulnerable players are allowed to play (and pitch!) 12 innings of baseball in a meaningless pre-draft rookie league game. Great...

Twins 8, White Sox 2: Power outage continues

The South Siders could not shake their struggles against the AL Central leaders

The White Sox (38-41) just did not have it tonight, and they lost — convincingly — to the AL Central-leading Twins (47-37).

Despite the scoreless opening frame, the top of the first was ominous for starting pitcher Michael...

Not great, Bob. | FanGraphs

Is it October yet?

The White Sox continue to crumble against the Twins in embarrassing fashion. The Twins scored a lot of runs, the White Sox had no fire in them, Josh Harrison had a double-play ground ball when he pitched in the ninth, and AJ Pollock got ejected in the bottom of the ninth that might as well be chucked into the Howl at the Moon File.

Not great. Let’s break this train wreck of a game down.

White Sox to activate Eloy Jimenez this week

The White Sox have been without Eloy Jimenez for two-and-a-half months, as the slugging outfielder tore a tendon in his right hamstring on April 23, but he's returning to the lineup soon.

Michael Kopech looks to help the South Siders recover from a tough loss

After a disappointing loss in a game that went to 10 innings on Monday night, the White Sox (38-40) will try again against the Twins (46-37).

Michael Kopech will take the mound for the South Siders. Kopech, 26, enters tonight with a 2.78 ERA, a 3.62 xERA, and a 3.67 FIP in 68 innings this...

South Side Sox Player of the Week (June 26-July 2): Dylan Cease

Dylan Cease, and the dentist. | Mitch Ransdell/South Side Sox

All eyes are on the Mustachioed Menace of Milton, who wheeled-and-dealed his way through five stellar starts in June, and made history along the way

Five starts, and not a single earned run in nearly 30 innings.

The last time a White Sox pitcher matched that feat, Teddy Roosevelt was President and the U.S. consisted of 45 states (it was 1904, and the pitcher was Doc White). This, plus a career-high 13 Ks against the...

Eloy Jimenez Returning to White Sox Soon: Which Version Will Show Up?

When the Chicago White Sox acquired Eloy Jimenez nearly five years ago, most of us within the fan base believed we were getting a middle-of-the-order impact bat that would be a centerpiece for the next great Sox core.

Today in White Sox History: July 5

Can you imagine this guy as the culprit behind a 15-14 loss, 24 years ago today? Sure you can.

Seventeen runs lead to a rout, but 15 to a loss? Fourth of July hangovers abound

1914
White Sox legend Ed Walsh made his season debut, having sat out all year with a strained arm. Seven straight years of throwing no fewer than 230 1?3 innings — including league-leading totals in four seasons and as many as 464 innings thrown in one year — had taken its toll. In fact, even the 1913 season...

Let me first say, all apologies, but it’s 3 a.m. and I’ve just started these, thinking it was a typical day off for the minors, with just rookie leagues to recap. Wrong. So these writeups are gonna be VERY brief, no polls. Maybe I can add some in the...

Coaching and fundamental mistakes reach crisis point, as Chicago fails to breach .500 for 35th consecutive game

Despite numerous opportunities, the White Sox were unable to provide any kind of emotional salve on what’s been a somber and heart-wrenching Independence Day for the Chicagoland area, losing to the division rival Twins, 6-3, in 10 innings, once again falling back to two games worse than .500 and 5 1?2 games back in the...

The Chicago White Sox lost at home to the Minnesota Twins by a score of 6-3, in 10 innings. Minnesota moves to 36-47 and extends its division lead to 3 1?2 games, while Chicago drops to 38-40 and 5 1?2 games out of first.
