Baseball Has A Crisis On It's Hands

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Mark Lester   A few days ago, White Sox slugger Tim Anderson smashed a pitch from Royals pitcher Brad Keller over the left field fence. Like any athlete would do when they score, Anderson celebrated, yelling towards the dugout to fire up his teammates as they’d just taken the lead in a scoreless game. Brad Keller thought an appropriate response would be to hit Anderson with a 92 mph fastball in the thigh. Apparently he didn’t get a chance to watch that “let the kids play” commercial that MLB put out before the season started. And apparently Rob Manfred...

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Mark Lester   The White Sox, as predicted, are looking like a team destined, once again, to finish 4th or 5th in one of the worst divisions in the history of baseball, the AL Central. After a couple weeks of baseball, there are a lot of obvious positives and negatives for the Sox, though I’ll be the first to admit there’s a whole lot more negative.

Why This Needs To Be Yoan Moncada's Breakout Season

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Marcos Sandoval   the White Sox have a stud on their roster who hasn’t really delivered since being up. There was so much hype around the 24 year back in his 2016 MiLB and 2017 MLB seasons. I could quote myself saying “Moncada is the next best second baseman.” Moncada was a player that was too good for Triple-A(AAA) but not yet good enough for big league pitching. This lead to him only playing 54 games in 2017. 2018 was his first full season in the bigs with 149 games in the season. But with that came 21 errors...

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Mark Lester   After five grueling months without baseball, it’s finally time for the 2019 season. The White Sox will open the season with five games on the road, three against the Rays and two in Cleveland against the Indians. On April 5, the Sox will finally play their first game at home against the Seattle Mariners in Guaranteed Rate Field.

The ballpark has seen some of the most glorious moments...
