WHITE SOX RUMORS & GOSSIP

Correction: White Sox story

CHICAGO (AP) In a story May 4 about the game between the Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox, The Associated Press reported erroneously that David Ortiz moved within one home run of Carl Yastrzemski's club mark.

Wait, The White Sox Bullpen is How Good?

The White Sox currently have the best bullpen in Major League Baseball. If you’re anything like me, that statement may have caught you off guard just a bit. But it’s not as if it’s completely unfounded. The pieces have always been in place for this bullpen to be great. One might even suggest that the bullpen was one of the strongest areas of improvement in GM Rick Hahn...

The White Sox Have Two Aces

Chris Sale is the best pitcher in the American League, and one of the true aces in baseball. He’s made the All-Star team four straight years, and has finished in the top six in Cy Young voting in each of those seasons as well. He may be overshadowed in Chicago by what Jake Arrieta is doing right now, but Chris Sale is still recognized as one of the game’s best pitchers. Chris...

One of the things we found so fascinating is that Miggy has seemingly never had to adjust. He’s got this approach, and that approach has been damn near unbeatable going on 14 years now. He’s been waiting, and waiting, and waiting some...

Wynn, World Series, and White Sox
