Column: Chicago White Sox Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf can take a bow for a commitment to spending during the pandemic

Chicago White Sox Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf and Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts share the same burden of having to pay players without knowing when or if fans will be allowed inside their ballparks this year. But one of them isn’t letting that stop him from trying to win a World Series.

Céspedes to Chicago is official

Céspedes to Chicago is official

@JesseSanchezMLB Rough timeline could have the right fielder on the South Side on Opening Day 2022 More than three weeks ago, we brought you the news that MLB’s No. 1 international prospect, Yoelqui Céspedes, would be signing with the White Sox this month. We did not lie. Both Céspedes and Marco Paddy spoke to the media on Friday, saying about what you’d expect. Paddy does see Céspedes as near MLB-ready due to his Cuban playing experience. “I can’t tell you exactly how close or far I am from the majors,” NBC’s Vinnie Duber quoted Céspedes as saying....

Where do the White Sox go now?

Where do the White Sox go now?

Will Rick Hahn call on some budgetary creativity to fit Marcell Ozuna into the lineup, or are the White Sox destined to scrape out the rest of the roster with scraps? | Ronald Martinez/ What say you, sweet child o’ mine? With the signing of Liam Hendriks, the White Sox have fortified their bullpen with the best reliever on the market (and arguably in all MLB), likely ensuring no late-inning falloff from Alex Colomé’s excellent, two-year stint as their closer. The Hendriks signing is the capstone of a White Sox offseason that has been unusually fast-paced compared...

SSS Cryptosoxery #3

It’s a resurrection of a much more minor insurrection This week we get off the Tony La Russa mockery and into the mockery of another returnee to the White Sox uniform. First, though, the answer to last week’s Crypotosoxery, which you probably knew all of after solving the first five words spoken to his arresting officer: Do you see my ring? I’m a Hall of Famer baseball person. I’m legit. I’m a Hall of Famer, brother – Tony La Russa But enough about Hall-of-Famer persons. For this week’s quiz, we go from the very serious insurrection in Washington to a very...

A tale of two Colons 2003 Another bold stab by GM Ken Williams came as he acquired starter Bartolo Colon as part of a three-way deal with the Montreal Expos and New York Yankees. Colon had a good season for the White Sox, with 15 wins, 242 innings pitched and 173 strikeouts. It was his walk year, so he parlayed that into a large deal with the Angels — with whom he’d win the Cy Young in 2005. Williams brought Colon back in 2009 hoping for the same, but got little for his troubles. In fact, Colon got hurt, was overweight and when assigned to a minor league rehab stint never...

2021 South Side Sox Prospect Vote: Round 14

Jonathan Daniel/ Who is the 14th-best prospect in the White Sox system? If you’re unsure of what this is, read our Top Prospect Vote primer. This doesn’t happen very often, or maybe at all, but this round every player moved up one slot, in exact order, with the very minor exception of Bryan Ramos catching José Rodriguez to secure a tie for eight place. Pretty wild. That means it was Zack Burdi who ascended from runner-up to winner of the No. 13 slot, with 30% (65 of 217 votes). Like with Jake Burger in the 12th round, Burdi has made an impressive recovery in the...

Hoyt Wilhelm was the linchpin of Chicago’s bullpen in the 1960s. One master move set the White Sox up for much of the 1960s 1963 It was the move that re-energized the franchise and led directly to back-to-back-to-back 90 or more-win seasons in 1963, 1964 and 1965. White Sox GM Ed Short traded shortstop Luis Aparicio and outfielder Al Smith to the Orioles for third baseman Pete Ward, outfielder Dave Nicholson, shortstop Ron Hansen and relief pitcher Hoyt Wilhelm. Ward would be named Co-Rookie of the Year (with teammate Gary Peters) and would supply power for the next...
