A Changing of the Guard

It’s no secret the White Sox had a rough stretch of first round draft picks in the early part of this decade. Recently, Gordon Beckham and Chris Sale have gone a long way to turn that around, but the flops are still fresh in the minds of a lot of Sox fans. This spring Kyle... Read more »

Hot and Cold 7/29-8/4

Another trade deadline comes and goes, and with it, the White Sox farm system is further thinned out. While Dan Hudson and David Holmberg will no longer be appearing on the Hot and Cold list, there are still plenty of other prospects to choose from.

Hot and Cold 7/15-7/21

If you thought hitting .516 would be good enough to make you the hitter of the week, you’d be wrong, as Ryan Lee misses out due to an even better week by a certain Winston-Salem Dash outfielder. That’s right, it’s time for another Hot and Cold…

Top 25 Review: 10-6

Thompson was thought to be the rawest of talents in the Sox system, but he had a promising stint with the Intimidators after joining them in mid April. He hit .236/.296/.458 in 144 AB. You have to love the power and the plate discipline showed improvement from a year ago. Unfortunately, Thompson injured his hand and is likely out for the year. He created the most excitement of a White Sox prospect early this year and now we are left frustrated that the injury bug hit another top prospect.
The midseason top 25 review rolls into the meat of the rankings. Some of these top 10 prospects have raised their stock even further, with one contributing to the White Sox this year, while a couple have been disappointing.

JPNese 7/4

So, the Barons didn’t suck so bad this week.  I’m not going to gush about splitting a series with Mississippi, but it’s better than my previous prediction.  The week didn’t start out so well, losing the first three games and looking bad doing it.  Throw in a rainout on Tuesday, and things looked bleak yet...

Hot and Cold 4/22-4/28
