Tadahito Iguchi brought his solid all-around game and flair for the dramatic to the South Side on this day, 18 years ago. | SetNumber: X73835 TK1 The most surprising piece of the 2005 champs arrives on the South Side 1953 Sometimes, GM Frank Lane made one too many trades, and this time it came over the objection of manager Paul Richards. This was one of those deals that seemed to be too good to be true, and turned out to be the case, as the White Sox acquired two-time American League batting champ Ferris “Burrhead” Fain from the Philadelphia A’s as part of a five-player deal. Fain and minor-le ..read more

Some savvy posturing by GM Roland Hemond landed Scott Fletcher on the South Side on this day, 40 years ago. | Owen C. Shaw/Getty Images It’s true: Fergie Jenkins nearly finished his career on the South Side 1983 The White Sox and GM Roland Hemond embarrassed the Cubs by hinting through the media that they might select pitcher Fergie Jenkins after the Cubs left him unprotected in the free agent draft. Jenkins, the future Hall-of-Famer, was getting close to the magical 300-win mark in his career, and the Sox were entitled to compensation after losing outfielder Steve Kemp to the Yankees. The Cub ..read more

Our tribute to the Rookie of the Year and dominant 1960s pitching force comes in the form of an extended Q&A With the passing of Gary Peters, once again we are able to produce a wonderful tribute to him in the form of an extended Q&A. Peters, by WAR, was the 17th-best pitcher in the history of a very pitching-rich franchise, and tied with Ray Durham for 38th-best player overall. Our sincerely condolences to Peters’ family and to the many fans (like the author, Mark Liptak) who grew up watching Gary dominate AL hitters in the 1960s. This interview originally was published at White Sox ..read more

It was not a great second career outing for Shane Lindsay. | Leon Halip/Getty Images Australia, represent! 1985 The first Australian ever to play for the White Sox, Shane Lindsay, was born in Melbourne. Lindsay only had a four-game, 10-day major league career. He was called up as the season spiraled down the drain in 2011, with a solid debut in Detroit on September 4 (one scoreless inning, with a walk and a strikeout). His mother had made an arduous journey from Australia to see his debut — and succeeded, getting to Comerica Park in time after 20-odd hours of flights. Lindsay’s encore, on Sept ..read more

There is villainy afoot. | Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports A writer’s preseason exposure therapy It happens every year, like clockwork. Sometime in October, the Chicago White Sox make their typical early exit from the postseason — if they made it there at all. As the season ends, fans like me are left to navigate disappointment on their own while simultaneously suffering the excuses and vague platitudes about “doing better” that start trickling out of the front office at 35th and Shields. But then, the holiday season hits. I’m too busy planning meals and facilitating Christmas magic for my ..read more
