The Case Against The Rebuild

The Case Against The Rebuild
I have advocated for years now that the White Sox need to abandon their current modus operendi, that of splash dash, nip tuck and pray for luck.  Maybe a couple of spare parts and old bit can make a contender out of the solid pitching we are getting from Chris Sale and Jose Quintana.  It...

Is Rick Hahn Good At His Job?

Is Rick Hahn Good At His Job?
When Hahn was hired/promoted to the White Sox general manager position in the fall of 2012 it was greeted with wide praise.  Much had been reported about Hahn’s behind the scenes work in contract negotiations and how he was on the short list of potential GMs around the league.  As we round into the fourth...

White Sox Making Moves But Do They Matter?

White Sox Making Moves But Do They Matter?
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: The White Sox have acquired an aging, probably past his prime player, who, if the stars align and lightning is caught, could help the White Sox push into the playoffs, or dare we hope, further.  Describing the acquisition of Justin Morneau, Steve Stone even used the words...

Todd Frazier? Could This Mean... (The White Sox Cycle: The False Hope)

Todd Frazier? Could This Mean... (The White Sox Cycle: The False Hope)
Well this is a bigger deal.  Bringing in Todd Frazier is the type of move that gets the media buzzing a little more, talking a little more about the White Sox.  It is also the type of move that hasn’t really panned out for the White Sox in recent years, see Dunn, Adam; LaRoche, Adam;...

Brett Lawrie Is Here!

Brett Lawrie Is Here!
Hey everybody! Brett Lawrie is here! Yes he is! And the White Sox aren’t done yet, at least that is what everyone is saying.  All I can say is, man I hope they aren’t done or this team is in even worse shape from top to bottom than I thought. Lawrie brings with him 16... Read more »

The White Sox Plan? No Plan!

The White Sox Plan? No Plan!
So, let me get this straight: The baseball season ended on November 1. The White Sox season ended October 4. Yet, according to Kenny Williams the White Sox have no plan for the off season.  Well that isn’t quite right, they have three potential scenarios, A, B, and C.  Or maybe not, because in the...

Are You Paying Attention Rick Hahn?

Are You Paying Attention Rick Hahn?
If I was attending Sox Fest this winter I would have one question for Rick Hahn. I would ask the White Sox GM if he is able to call Jerry Reinsdorf at this point in his career? You may recall in July that Kenny Williams revealed that he was the intermediary between Hahn and the... Read more »

Time To Say Good-Bye to Kenny Williams

Time To Say Good-Bye to Kenny Williams
When Kenny was in Egypt-land…Let My Kenny GO!!!  I know in some quarters it is anathema to advocate for the departure of Kenny Williams, but it is time. We will always have 2005, but that is a decade ago and as it stands right now, it might be another decade before the White Sox sniff... Read more »

Kenny Williams Is In Charge, Just Ask Him
As the White Sox pile up the losses and the blame for why the team is so bad is being spread around, but mostly falling on Robin Ventura, one person has stepped forward to take accountability.  On Saturday, Kenny Williams in an interview with Paul Sullivan, said that ultimately he is responsible for the White Sox...
