White Sox Player Previews: Gordon Beckham

White Sox Player Previews: Gordon Beckham
It seems like only yesterday that Gordon Beckham was the fresh-faced youth coming up in May to provide a spark to a lethargic team.  We all rocked out when his 1980s walk-up music, “Your Love” by the Outfield.  According to some publications he was rookie of the year (Andrew Bailey won the major award.)  The...

White Sox Player Previews: Chris Sale

White Sox Player Previews: Chris Sale
Time to wrap up the pitchers with the big kahuna: Chris Sale.  After two stellar years, the White Sox promotion and marketing arm is going full monty.  When Sale starts at home this season, section 154 will transform to the Sale Zone.  For $20 (what a bargain for a lower deck seat! no really that’s...

White Sox Player Previews: Felipe Paulino

White Sox Player Previews: Felipe Paulino
Now that we’ve examined the fringe players (and already guessed wrong on one count) It’s time to move on to the starting line up.  But we are not done with speculation because next up is the pitching rotation.  Right now it looks like Chris Sale, Jose Quintana, John Danks, Erik Johnson and Felipe Paulino.  As...

White Sox Player Previews: Paul Konerko

White Sox Player Previews: Paul Konerko
Where on the deck My Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead. It wasn’t as bad as all that I suppose, but the fall of Paul Konerko was rather dramatic from 2012 to 2013.  Many, including myself thought 2013 should have been his last year.  Konerko has been saying the right things about regarding coming back...

The bullpen was a bit of guess work on my part, but the last few spots on the bench are even harder.  I’m pretty sure the White Sox are coming to Chicago with three first basemen, Abreu, Konerko and Dunn.  If they carry twelve pitchers like I think they will, that only leaves ten slots...

White Sox Player Previews: Donnie Veal

White Sox Player Previews: Donnie Veal
Oh the word play and puns associated with Donnie Veal; Veal Gets Pounded, Don’t Order the Veal, This Veal is Tough, Veal is Out of the Pen and the all around Twitter favorite, BABY MEAT!  Regardless of his performance, Veal was always good for a laugh in a dismal 2013 campaign. Donnie Veal is one... Read more »

White Sox Player Previews: Matt Lindstrom

White Sox Player Previews: Matt Lindstrom
Kind of keeping with a theme with today’s preview.  I wrote yesterday about Scott Downs, one of the oldest members of the White Sox and while Matt Lindstrom isn’t as old as Downs, he is on the high side of 30, 34 to be exact.   He had an ok year in 2013, but not... Read more »

White Sox Player Previews: Scott Downs

White Sox Player Previews: Scott Downs
A few folks gave Rick Hahn some quiet praise and a passing grade for the off-season moves he made. One of the “little moves” he made was signing Scott Downs to a one year deal. According to the press release, he brings veteran leadership to the bullpen. I’m not sure if leadership is needed in... Read more »
