Morning notes: New players, better than the old players

Morning notes: New players, better than the old players
The White Sox have agreed to terms with their backflipping 1st round pick OF Courtney Hawkins for the full bonus allotment for his draft slot.  The deal is not official until Hawkins passes his physical, which might explain why Courtney tweeted this: For the record I have not signed any type of paper work or anything...

Morning notes: Notes on things other than Chris Sale

Morning notes: Notes on things other than Chris Sale
Orlando Hudson has charmed us all with competent major league at-bats from the 3rd base position, but Brent Morel is on the recovery trail and has a starting job waiting for him if Robin Ventura sticks to his words. Morel took BP, did some exercises, and should be starting rehab work in Charlotte Wednesday, which... Read more »

Only a few more days of this Spring malaise

Only a few more days of this Spring malaise
Real, major league baseball has been making isolated appearances in the Eastern hemisphere this week, and the bright lights from the spectacle only serve to put this shoddy Arizona facsimile of the game into unflattering relief.  When will all the dingers mean something?  When can we start freaking out about Dayan Viciedo for real?  What is Ray...

Impressions from blogger call with Buddy Bell
Friday afternoon, us blogger scum got the chance to talk with White Sox Vice President and Director of Player Development, Buddy Bell.  If there is a better guy to talk about White Sox prospects with than Bell…well, then he really should promote himself better. Naturally, the conversation between Bell and the White Sox blogosphere was... Read more »

White Sox Season Preview - Starting Rotation

White Sox Season Preview - Starting Rotation
The break in position group previews was long enough to wait for the team Spring Training ERA to shed the moniker of “worst in baseball”, and allow us all to have positive thoughts about them again.  That was the reason for the pause.  It wasn’t apathy or anything like that. Onward! John Danks Solidly above-average... Read more »

Guess who's coming back (probably)!

Guess who's coming back (probably)!
On a lark, I decided to check on Arizona Fall League sensation-come-Rule 5 selection RHP Terry Doyle.  The soft-tossing 26 year-old righty who was snatched away by the Twins because the White Sox expressed indifference to his existence, and is trapped in the land of pitch-to-contact unless he falls off the 25-man roster sometime this...

Winter Meeting Wrap-Up: League reels upon itself, melts; White Sox react "Eh, let's see where this goes"

Winter Meeting Wrap-Up: League reels upon itself, melts; White Sox react "Eh, let's see where this goes"
If Day 3 of the Winter Meetings were defined primarily–for White Sox fans at least–by crushing loss and the rolls of cookie dough that were eaten to cope with it, Day 4 was defined by Angels owner Arte Moreno dousing the free agent market in gasoline, lighting it aflame, and then laughing as he flew...

The White Sox let you know exactly how bummed out you should be about their farm system

The White Sox let you know exactly how bummed out you should be about their farm system
As it were, Friday was the White Sox day for adding vaguely promising minor-leaguers to the 40-man roster.  With the winter meetings looming, these additions specifically indicate who the White Sox will be protecting from the upcoming Rule 5 draft.  Every minor league player not on the 40-man roster who was signed at age 18...

Baseball is over: PREPARE

Baseball is over: PREPARE
On Friday night, the baseball season ended with the St. Louis Cardinals as the World Series champions.  If they hadn’t already hammered this point home in 2006, St. Louis reiterated that you always gun like hell for the playoffs if at all possible.  Even if your rotation is sort of blegh, even if at any...
