Blow it all up!: and other ideas for the White Sox off-season

Blow it all up!: and other ideas for the White Sox off-season
This off-season should be…interesting. The White Sox are coming off of a year where pretty much every member of their over-30 offensive core met, or improbably exceeded expectations (Jake Peavy even improbably made a bid for 220 innings), and they got all of 85 wins. My quick assessment would be that they’re due for the... Read more »

Impressions from blogger call with Buddy Bell

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 »

Large second wave of roster cuts set to make things fun

Large second wave of roster cuts set to make things fun
Perhaps setting a precedent that all games in which the White Sox get shutout will be followed by a third of the roster being cut, 14 players were sent packing from major league camp Monday. Alright, so perhaps this day was selected weeks ahead of time and several lockers were cleared out prior to the... Read more »

If I really wanted to, I think I could squeeze a third post out about Kosuke Fukudome signing on to be the 5th outfielder, but it’s probably not the best thing for anyone involved or in the surrounding area.  Additionally, the video for the classic White Sox game I was going to write a retrospective...

Marco Paddy reintroduces Kenny Williams to Venezuela, purchases him a 16 year-old
The White Sox are really stingy at spending in the draft.  This has been covered, there’s no indication that it’s changing with the new CBA, and it’s a pretty large hindrance to building a formidable young talent base. But the White Sox have been double-dipping in terrible with their habitual miniscule spending on international amateur... Read more »

Rebuilding in intent, competing by default

Rebuilding in intent, competing by default
Before the recent holiday, the only clues given to the White Sox overriding direction were somewhat conflicting.  The hyper burn-all-the-major-league-assets nature of the Sergio Santos for Nestor Molina trade was paired with the John Danks extension that seemed to ask “Hey, why obsess about prospects when there’s this perfectly good pitcher here now?” Really, these...

White Sox Week That Was 6/6-6/12: Could we have done more?

White Sox Week That Was 6/6-6/12: Could we have done more?
This is getting ridiculous. // Nuccio DiNuzzo, Chicago Tribune The mandate for the White Sox during a 7-game homestand week versus Seattle and Oakland was pretty clear: make hay…preferably lots of it.  And whatever caution that Seattle’s promising record might have elicited was burnt away when the Sox won match-ups versus Felix Hernandez and Michael...
