What The White Sox Must Do Next

6/12/2021
Nick Madrigal is down, and likely out for the remainder of the season. Now is the time to tighten up lineup decisions and optimize the personnel sent to the plate. With three high-end position players injured, some internal moves can soften the losses. Meanwhile there are several second basemen available in the trade market. One is a perfect fit, and should be easily attainable. Brought to you by Family Waterproofing Solutions! Listen. Subscribe. Share. Call 708-459-8406 and leave your...

Tony La Russa: White Sox Lightning Rod

5/19/2021
He is either a crazy old man stuck inside of a mystical world of "unwritten rules" that - to him - are more important than his own players, or a sly old fox keeping the focus on himself while his young team plays loose against the whole world. Is Tony La Russa playing chess as he guides a first place White Sox team, or is he just begrudgingly along for the ride? Plus, Yoan Moncada may have a bit of an ego.
