Kansas City’s hot start has it at holding the top run differential in the league and just barely behind the Cleveland Guardians for the AL Central lead. | Jamie Sabau/Getty Images Strikeouts for days, Yankees continue their reign, and the AL Central has two teams in the top five — just like we expected It’s just the second week of the season, but teams are already battling hard for division leads — or maybe working to make up for a poor start. For White Sox fans checking in on everyone else, you might get discouraged about all of the good news our rivals are experiencing, but I assume we are w ..read more

Mark Buehrle delivers a pitch during a masterpiece game against the Seattle Mariners at U.S. Cellular Field, 19 years ago today. | Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via Getty Images Mark Buehrle paints another masterpiece — and fast 1940 Cleveland’s Bob Feller no-hit the White Sox on Opening Day, 1-0 — the only no-hitter in Opening Day history, and the seventh all-time no-no against the South Siders. The fireballer gave up five walks (facing 33 batters total) but struck out eight for a 90 game score, on a chilly, 47° day at Comiskey Park in front of 14,000. Feller defeated Eddie Smith, who didn’t have a b ..read more

Pedro Grifol: The scapegoat, or the real problem? | Jason Miller/Getty Images I’m struggling to find anything witty to say these days The White Sox had a team meeting this afternoon, however, Pedro Grifol didn’t feel the need to elaborate on what was said. I’m sure it’s exactly what the team needed to get pumped up, though, right? Wrong! What?? A loss after the big team meeting? I’m starting to question if this guy is really that obsessed. Nice job Nastrini #WhiteSox pic.twitter.com/sBUPfo0eHZ — Nick Murawski (@Nick_GGTB) April 16, 2024 Let’s start with some positives — the pitching! Nick ..read more

Simone Biles’ husband and new Chicago Bear Jonathan Owens could probably play for the White Sox at this rate. | Jamie Sabau/Getty Images The season just started, and it’s already over Dear reader, it is April 15 and the Chicago White Sox are the worst team in baseball. Even worse than the Miami Marlins, who employ former White Sox Avisaíl García, Jake Burger and Tim Anderson. Worse than the Colorado Rockies, who haven’t tried to field a competitive team since before masking was a thing. Worse than the Kansas City Royals, who seem to be our favorite team to steal from. But at least unlike the o ..read more

Future Hall of Famer starter Red Faber helped the White Sox to a 2-0 start 109 years ago today. He also improved to 2-0. How? Find out below. The South Siders count the Browns down and out 1915 It was the biggest shutout in team history, as the White Sox pasted St. Louis, 16-0. The Pale Hose put up seven runs before the home Browns even got to bat, and scored in every inning but the third, seventh and eighth. It was just a 15-hit assault with no homers, so how did the Sox score 16? With help from five Browns errors and six stolen bases! Buck Weaver went 3-for-6 with a double and two runs, paci ..read more

Carlos Pérez went 2-for-3 on the day, scoring three times and driving in four runs. | Laura Wolff/Charlotte Knights A one-win day (Knights) on the farm, with (mostly) solid bullpen performances across the board — and some defense that could use a bit of work Charlotte Knights 9, Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp 4 (Gameday box) (Statcast box) The Knights get the W in back-to-back games thanks to a six-run fifth inning to steal the lead back from the Jumbo Shrimp. Johan Domínguez didn’t have the best start, giving up eight hits and getting beat up a bit in the third and fourth innings to put the Shrimp ..read more

Korey Lee — whose average is actually better than .200 this season — provides an accurate representation of the season. | David Banks-USA TODAY Sports A sweep puts Chicago 11 games under — in mid-April Another terrible loss puts the Chicago White Sox at 2-13 and gave the Cincinnati Reds the sweep. At this point, the team is breaking all the bad records you can think of. Let’s recap the disaster. The White Sox actually had a chance in the bottom of the first inning after a leadoff walk by Robbie Grossman and a single from Andrew Vaughn, but back-to-back strikeouts ended the threat. That’s what ..read more
