Thoughts on “Machado Mania”

Alright everyone, you can go back to focusing on work or studying for finals, because the rumors have calmed down significantly. In case you haven't been on Twitter in the past 48 hours (good for you for having the will power), you already know that the Baltimore Orioles were aggressively shopping 3B Manny Machado, who ...

5 Takeaways for the White Sox from the 2017 Postseason

Alright, we've all had a day to take it in: baseball is gone for the next few months. First of all, congratulations to the Houston Astros on holding on to win their first World Series Championship. While most of the Sox on 35th Crew was #TeamCamelback, I was pulling for the Astros, and I think ...

Reliving the 2005 World Series Run, 12 Years Later

At some point today, I am expecting to receive a "Happy Anniversary" text from a good friend of mine. Now, if it were anyone but him sending this message, I'd be a little confused (and pretty freaked out). But, him being a fellow White Sox fan, I know exactly what he is talking about: today, ...

Interview With White Sox No. 21 Prospect Jordan Stephens

We all are starting to know the names of the White Sox prospects as we spend more of our time looking to the minor leagues. However, rarely do we get the chance to understand the ballplayer on a deeper level than what we see in the box score. So, on Jordan Stephens' yearly "box score," we ...

How the White Sox Have Paved Their Own Road for Success

I love reading about the White Sox from various sources and contributors like myself on other blogs. Often, I find inspiration for writing articles from people's opinions that I don't agree with. That's how sports talk should be anyway: two or more people debating their opinions. This article of mine is no different. Last Wednesday, ...
