A bit disheartening conversation. My hope is that some players take their sweet time to develop, but what really worries me about Moncada’s K ratios is that this is no something new. He K’ed in the minors at a high clip as well.


Shock treatment:  time to bring up another Rondon, while Yoan goes down to focus on hitting exclusively as a lefty.

Anyone want some extra depression with their morning coffee?


Well, shit. I guess were all used to it.


This rebuild could all be worth it if we could go to the postseason in back to back years for the first time in franchise history if not a world series win. Goddamn this is sad. Please give us sox fans a break already

This is why is hard for me (a non-Chicagoan) to explain why from all the MLB teams, I had to pick the White Sox to be my fav team….

When our family went to London, we went to a Premiere League game. We didn’t want to do the obvious Chelsea or Arsenal, so we went to see the Queens Park Rangers. Decided we’d be big QPR fans! Of course, they were relegated the next season and haven’t been in the Premier League since. Seemed fitting to me, as a White Sox fan.
