Indians 4, White Sox 3: Very close to avoiding disaster but not quite

It’d take a real creative bent to characterize the White Sox recent performance in a manner more generous than “freefall.” They have dropped three in a row to the now barely second place Indians and have lost five series in a row. But it’s more eye of the beholder whether another one-run loss that was inches away from being reversed is encouraging or just torturous 1. The...

After beating Sale, Indians top Quintana, White Sox 4-3

CHICAGO (AP) Corey Kluber allowed two runs over 7 1/3 innings and the Cleveland Indians roughed up a top White Sox pitcher for the second straight day in a 4-3 win over Chicago on Wednesday. After sending Chris Sale to his first loss after a 9-0 start, the Indians got three runs and five hits in six innings against Jose Quintana (5-4). Quintana's ERA, an AL-best 1.98 at the start...

Chris Sale threw harder for some reason

White Sox ace suffers first loss, but it's not a referendum on new approach Chris Sale was due for a dud, but I figured it'd happen when a team exploited his power-saving setting. Leading up to his abbreviated outing against the Indians on Tuesday, ESPN Stats & Info joined FanGraphs in noting that the softer-throwing version of Sale was dependent on a different batted-ball profile...

There’s Room on the Bench for Improvement

We’ve talked about how the White Sox’ rotation sure could use some help.  And, especially with Jose Abreu‘s uncharacteristic ineptitude persisting, the offense could use reinforcements as well. On Monday, Rick Hahn said that he had noticed these things too: 1. The White Sox could use some more pitching; 2. A left-handed bat would be very nice; and 3. You get more value out...

White Sox release journeyman utility man Travis Ishikawa

According to a report from Dan Hayes of Comcast SportsNet Chicago, the Chicago White Sox have released journeyman utility man Travis Ishikawa.  Failing to make a big league appearance while a member of the White Sox’s organization, Ishikawa will presumably find work sometime in the near future especially if he is willing to ink a minor league deal. The 32-year-old originally broke...

Did Alex Gordon’s wrist break the Royals’ chances?

Heading into the 2016 season, many were down on the Kansas City Royals’ chances. Despite winning the World Series and two straight AL pennants, improvements made by the Tigers, White Sox and Indians during the off-season matched with expected regression and the expected loss of free agents largely lead to the Royals being expected to finish in the middle of the pack in the AL Central...

Chicago White Sox: Todd Frazier proving to be the pick up of the year

The Chicago White Sox traded for third baseman Todd Frazier in the 2015 offseason in hopes to boost a lineup that mightily struggled during 2015 to scratch runs across the board. At third, Frazier plays a position that has been a disaster for the White Sox for nearly a decade, since a back injury to Joe Crede made him inconsistent in his play and led to his eventual retirement. White...

White Sox players attempt crazy basketball trick shot from stands

Because everything is good and fun on days that Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale takes the mound, a bunch of the other players goofed off on Thursday with trick shot attempts in the U.S. Cellular Field stands. The crew consisted of pitchers Mat Latos and Carlos Rodon, and infielders Tyler Saladino and Carlos Sanchez (full video above). Dude Perfect they are not but Saladino had...

WATCH: George Springer’s strong vertical leap helps rob Jose Abreu of home run

Most everything this season has been going the way of the Chicago White Sox. And most everything has been going against the Houston Astros. But for one play on Thursday, the ‘Stros had the upper hand — thanks to some major hops from George Springer. With two outs and none on in the bottom of the first inning in Chicago, Jose Abreu sent a deep fly ball to right field ...

Triple Plays Are Becoming a Habit For The White Sox

CHICAGO- The Chicago White Sox did it again on Wednesday night. They turned a triple play for the second time this season. It’s the first time they’ve pulled off this accomplishment since 2006, and they’re the first team to do it since the 2007 Philadelphia Phillies. Although this triple play was a little more basic than the one they turned last month, it’s still significant...

White Sox turn their second triple play of the season (VIDEO)

The calendar hasn’t even hit June (39 games old, to be exact) and the Chicago White Sox have accomplished a rare feat this season…twice. Unlike the zany one they pulled off on April 22 against the Texas Rangers, the triple play that was turned on Wednesday versus Houston was in the far more conventional, around-the-horn style. The Chicago White Sox are kinda good at getting...

White Sox turned their second triple play of the season

Triple plays are a rare bird in Major League Baseball. Grand slams and perfect games may be rare, but the triple play is something that usually only comes along a handful of times every year. It’s May 18 and the Chicago White Sox are just 39 games into the 2016 season. As of tonight, they already have two triple plays on the year after turning their second one against the Houston...

Ozzie Guillen interviewed for White Sox job while blackout drunk

Ozzie Guillen’s tenure as the Chicago White Sox manager was nothing if not colorful. So, it’s only fitting that it started in an especially colorful way. In a story on ESPN, Guillen said that he interviewed for the White Sox job the day after an all-night party, celebrating the then Florida Marlins (whom he coached for) winning the World Series in 2003. “We started drinking...

Adam Eaton Has Been Baseball’s Quietest Superstar

One problem you’ll hear with last year’s underachieving Chicago White Sox roster is that it was too heavy on the stars-and-scrubs model. Plenty of production came from guys like Chris Sale, Jose Quintana, and Jose Abreu. Very little production came from the rest of the infield, the back end of the rotation, and both corner-outfield spots. But this year’s White Sox have improved...

Using Statcast Against Jose Abreu

A few days ago, in the FanGraphs chat room, there was a little discussion about whether Statcast more favored run production or run prevention. I’m of the mind that having so much information works to the advantage of the pitchers and defenders, myself. I wrote about that a couple Hardball Times Annuals ago. But it’s by no means a settled matter. Someone during our conversation...
