2013 Bristol season in review

Another year, another last place finish for the Bristol White Sox. The BriSox are the unfortunate product of the youngest minor leaguers the White Sox have. Whether it be high schoolers, foreigners playing in the U.S. for the first time or raw college players, the BriSox are the proving grounds for the least experienced players... Read more »

2013 Bristol White Sox season preview

The Bristol White Sox are the place for younger draft picks and foreign players to make their U.S. debuts. As a result, they don’t win much. Last year the BriSox went 19-46. It’s a familiar story since some clubs use the Appalachian League as an advanced rookie league like how the Sox use Great Falls.... Read more »

One Week In - What We've Learned

The first week of minor league games is in the books now, and despite the very small sample size, we’ve already learned a lot.  The stats don’t tell much of a story yet – far too early for that.  But the roster announcements, and then the first few games for each affiliate, do tell us...

2013 Pre-Season Top White Sox Prospects - 11-25

The 2012 White Sox campaign was one of surpassing expectations, but without the happy ending.  A team that played about a dozen rookies, including a long list of graduates from our 2012 Pre-Season and Mid-Season lists, fell just short of winning the AL Central.  For a farm system that has been (often rightly) criticized for...
