Catching Up with the Kannapolis Backstops

Catching Up with the Kannapolis Backstops
Since A.J. Pierzynski left the team in 2012, the catching position has been a revolving door for the White Sox. And had A.J. not have been a locker room problem at his previous stops they probably would not have had a chance to acquire him. If you’re old enough to remember the last time the... Read more »

White Sox Minor League News and Notes, 8/13 to 8/19

White Sox Minor League News and Notes, 8/13 to 8/19
By now we’ve all had time to properly process our feelings regarding Michael Kopech’s impending call-up from Charlotte (if not, read this), and although I’m exhilarated to see the young fire-baller Tuesday, all the promotion has done is left me asking, “Why not Eloy?” To reminisce on the noted checking the boxes quote, yes, Kopech...

Michael Kopech Major League Debut Set for Tuesday

Michael Kopech Major League Debut Set for Tuesday
On Tuesday, August 21, at Guaranteed Rate Field, the White Sox will be featuring a new flamethrower standing 60’, 6” from home plate. No this isn’t the latest marketing promotion (although that’d be kinda cool) or a repeat appearance by Sister Mary Jo Sobieck (although that’d be even cooler). It’ll be the major league debut that White... Read more »

Dash Rule Everything Around Me

Dash Rule Everything Around Me
Astute readers may have noticed that this Thursday column has something of a Winston-Salem Dash bias, when I’m not writing about the absurdity of Eloy Jiménez still playing in the minor leagues (it’s absurd, just pay him). There are some solid reasons for this: 1) The Dash are very good (they clinched the playoffs back in... Read more »

White Sox Minor League News and Notes, 8/6 to 8/12
Everyone is familiar with the headlining prospects that Rick Hahn acquired in the trades that sent Chris Sale to Boston, Adam Eaton to Washington and Jose Quintana a few miles up the road, but what about the filler prospects that accompanied them? Chicago sends Jose Quintana Chicago receives Eloy Jimenez, Dylan Cease, Matt Rose and... Read more »

Prospect Focus: Bryce Bush

Prospect Focus: Bryce Bush
Nick Hostetler and his scouting staff have used the third day of major league baseball’s amateur draft to add legitimate talent to a White Sox farm system teeming with talent of late. Day three (rounds 11 through 40) is usually a good time to add overlooked college transfers and once proud options coming off poor... Read more »

Small Worlds and Oncoming Storms

Small Worlds and Oncoming Storms
The first time I went to see Nick Madrigal play, it rained a lot. It rained all day, then stopped long enough to lure me out of my apartment, then rained again. I sat in my car in the parking lot of BB&T Ballpark for ten minutes while it rained. I watched water inches deep... Read more »
