White Sox draft Miami catcher Zack Collins with 10th pick
The moment has arrived. With the tenth overall selection in the 2016 MLB Amateur Draft, the White Sox have selected Zack Collins, a catcher out of the University of Miami. The tweet length rub on Collins is that he’s a bat first backstop who flat out rakes. The longer version can be found in a... Read more »

Will Coop Fix 'Em? 2013 Spring Training Edition

What do John Danks, Gavin Floyd, Matt Thornton, Phil Humber and Donnie Veal have in common?  They were all highly drafted and touted pitching prospects who fell well short of expectations as they ascended the minor league ladder… until they came to the White Sox.  Then what happened? Coop fixed ‘em. It has become so... Read more »

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...

JPNese 9/8

It all ended with a whimper.  A 2-1 loss that seemed almost orchestrated.  Hanging fastballs, defensive indifference in the 8th inning in a 1 run game.  The Barons players excitedly claiming that they would be swinging at everything.  Wouldn’t have been the first time though, in 2007, the lowly Barons squad played their last game...

Hot and Cold 8/19-8/25

After back-to-back solid seasons from Matt Zaleski, there was some mild expectation for him in 2010, but he certainly hasn't delivered. Zaleski's appearance this week was particularly disastrous as he managed to give up 6 ER without recording one out. He gave up 4 hits (3x1B, 1xHR), and walked 2. For the season he has a 5.40 ERA with 80 SO/46 BB in 133.1 IP and a 9.66 ERA in his last 10 games. Honorable mentions: Jeff Marquez (5.1 IP, 11.81 ERA, 1 BB/4 SO), Joe Serafin (3.2 IP, 17.18 ERA, 4 BB/2 SO) and Nate Jones (4.2 IP, 7.71 ERA, 4 BB/2 SO).
Another week brings another great start from Andre Rienzo and Trayce Thompson returns to action in style. The week was not so kind to a couple of Knights, however.
