Fool Me Once: Good seasons by OK prospects, Part 2

Welcome back for Part Two in a sometimes depressing two-part series, in which I cast a nostalgic gaze back upon the recent history of White Sox minor league baseball, remember the prospects that had good years, and then remember the less good years by those prospects that were almost sure to follow. Part One, covering the late unpleasantness of... Read more »

Minor Madness - Can Charlotte carry 28 pitchers?

This time of year, there are always more players in the organization than there is room for on active major and minor league rosters.  If you attempt a depth chart for the April-starting affiliates (Class A and up), even leaving out the guys likely to be in rookie ball (which starts in June), you end...

2012 Preseason Top 25 White Sox Prospects

2012 Preseason Top 25 White Sox Prospects
The 2011-2012 offseason has seen some significant changes for the White Sox and that certainly includes the minor league system. The changes haven't been dramatic enough to turn a weak farm system into a strong one, but there are definitely some intriguing new players to watch. Pitching depth has improved markedly, but position player depth is still abysmal. Even a shallow system like the Sox have is not fully devoid of talent...

What to Expect from the September Call Ups

Originally I planned to talk about the minor leaguers the White Sox brought up with September roster expansion a couple days ago days ago. Eduardo Escobar, Shane Lindsay and Addison Reed each have some level of intrigue for one reason or another. However the Detroit series continued to suck the life out of me as... Read more »
