Sox' Stars Show Up In 2019 All-Star Game

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Mark Lester   The 2019 All Star Game in Cleveland provided us with pretty much no surprises, as the AL once again beat the NL by a score of 4-3. I usually root for the NL, so it’s naturally frustrating to see the AL win every year by scores that are usually pretty close. And while it was somewhat disheartening to watch my lone hometown representative Will Smith give up a homer on his very first pitch, the performance of the three South Siders was more than satisfactory.  The first White Sox appearance of the night came from Lucas...

Reds Defeated By Indians In Series Opener

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Zane Miller   The Reds started out their two-game series on the road against the Cleveland Indians with a 2-1 loss in 10 innings on Tuesday night, as the Reds look to recover from a series loss at the hands of the Philadelphia Phillies the previous weekend. The Indians started out with the lead in the fourth inning, as first baseman Carlos Santana was able to swat a solo home run to get the first run of the game, however, the Reds responded shortly thereafter as center fielder Nick Senzel got an RBI double in the fifth inning to...

Potential All-Stars On The White Sox

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Mark Lester   I may have spoken too soon about this team. Although they haven’t quite gotten there yet, the young core of the White Sox have carried the White Sox to a record of 29-32. That’s nothing to throw a party over, but it’s on pace to be a huge improvement over last year and a final record that would have six more wins than initially projected. There’s a good chance that they could pick up the pace in the coming months too; the team as a whole, in my opinion, looks a lot better than it did...

Lucas Giolitio Is Coming Into His Own

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Mark Lester   Just a few weeks ago, I was talking about how the White Sox five starting pitchers were one of, if not the worst pitching staffs in baseball. For the most part, that still appears to be the case. The starting pitching rotation ranks 29th in ERA, 29th in WHIP, 29th in BB/9, 30th in H/9, and 27th in HR/9. It doesn’t take an expert to look at that and make the assertion that the pitching situation is pretty terrible on the South Side. But it hasn’t been all doom and gloom; in fact, one pitcher on...

Jose Abreu's Potential Trade Destinations

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Mark Lester   For six years now, the White Sox have been mediocre at best and terrible at worst. For a team where it’s been almost impossible to look on the bright side for so many seasons,  a constant positive since 2014 has been AL RoY and All-Star first-baseman José Abreu. He has about 20 career WAR and a career slash of .294/.353/.516. This year, he bounced back from a slow start to the year and is currently leading the AL in RBIs with 33 after only a month of play. Meanwhile, his team is 16-19 and pretty much...
