Extend Abreu

If and when that happens, we can stomach a few more games of TBD pitching for the White Sox.

Tone Down The Future

Maybe it's time we all backed off a bit and simply let the kids play.

Playing The Game Right Now

Bat flips and dugout celebrations only go so far. Winning is what keeps bringing us back.

Tick, Tick, Tick

For the present-day White Sox, a challenge of immense magnitude.

What About Coop?

It's time to take a hard look at the longtime pitching guru.

Appreciating April

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.

The Eloy Miracle

His defense got fixed overnight last week.

Maybe Andy's Boys Quit

Or maybe the White Sox could have offered Manny Machado a dollar more than the Padres.

Get Manny!

Given all the factors, if the Sox don't land Machado, they simply just don't have the glamour and pizzazz to attract a player of his caliber.

The Season In Verse | Has The Rebuild Burst?

You gotta love Yolmer, he's a delight for the fans. But let's face it, folks, he's more of a utility man.

A Classic Day At The Crosstown Classic

Hawk Harrelson Goes Out As Awfully As He Broadcasted

The ultimate homer directs a lovefest as ridiculous and far from the truth as his broadcasts.

Kopech, Schmopech

There have been other setbacks and tragedies. Ahem.

He Hits Dingers

We're not talking about a five-tool player here. More like one tool.

Mt. Pleasant's Michael Kopech

His homophobic, racist tweets are not the lone blemish on his ledger. He received a 50-game suspension for a banned stimulant in 2015, and a year later he punched a teammate in spring training, breaking his hand.

Why Kopech Now?

You have to wonder what Rick Hahn's philosophy is in terms of the ripe moment to promote these youngsters. Consistency seems to be absent.

Drama Over

Assuming Jose Abreu and Avisail Garcia will still be playing on the South Side on Wednesday as July turns into August, we now see the team that will carry Sox colors for the last two months of the season. Can you feel the excitement?

A strategy Ricky Renteria should consider when it comes to Reynaldo Lopez.

The next two weeks will be among the season's most comforting basically because the Sox won't be playing very often.

No. 1: Be not disappointed if Ricky's Boys do, in fact, Quit, or at the very least get outscored by a bunch of runs.
