The White Sox Report Archives
Despite what one veteran Chicago baseball writer seems to think, the Encarnacion signing is a smart one.
His spray chart looks like a severe case of chicken pox.
Believe it or not, Anderson was the top batter. But the number of errors was a completely different matter.
It's entirely understandable at this juncture why Hahn isn't being hailed as a genius when it comes to evaluating and signing free agent talent.
Despite gang of nine and general lack of ability.
Finishing what they've started.
Look no further than the past week if you question whether the White Sox are a vastly improved aggregation than the dismal product of the past two rebuilding seasons.

Envying the Twins' way.
If and when that happens, we can stomach a few more games of TBD pitching for the White Sox.
Maybe it's time we all backed off a bit and simply let the kids play.
Bat flips and dugout celebrations only go so far. Winning is what keeps bringing us back.
Long list of losers.
For the present-day White Sox, a challenge of immense magnitude.
It's time to take a hard look at the longtime pitching guru.
If Tim Anderson gets just one hit in his next 24 at-bats, he'll still be hitting over .300. The Cubs have the worst ERA in baseball. And we now know who Ramon Laureano is.
