Lewis Masella - Mar 1, 2022

White Sox 4, Royals 1 (This game was the result of a simulation done through What If Sports. It matched the Kansas City Royals All-Time Team against the Chicago White Sox All-Time Team. This game did not actually happen.) Ted Lyons was brilliant in a complete-game effort, surrendering a single unearned run as the Chicago […]

Braden Herb - Oct 6, 2021

Postseason baseball has finally returned. There truly is no better time of the year, definitely not within the baseball season. And there may not be a better matchup to start the Division Series than the Chicago White Sox and the Houston Astros. Both teams could very well represent the American League in the World Series. […]

Comebacks very often aid the improbable, if not impossible. For instance, a team that is on the downhill and going there rapidly can be given a boost through these events. Not only that, but comebacks can also revitalize fanbases. Cheering crowds are normal to those teams destined for, not just the postseason, but success therein […]

With all of this talk about swinging away on a 3-0 count, it seems like a good idea to go over the twelve different possible counts in baseball so as to avoid upsetting Tony La Russa. While La Russa is not the only one who is upset about Yermin Mercedes hitting a home run on […]

Britton Barthold - May 11, 2021

A certain statistic came out the other day that caught the eyes of many. Yasmani Grandal, the catcher for the Chicago White Sox, and his stat line for 2021.

Jeremy Breland - Apr 8, 2021

As one writer previewed last week in the NL, it is time to look at the possible AL Cy Young contenders. Unlike the National League, there is no clear-cut favorite.

MLB Offseason
Matt Graves - Feb 13, 2021

The MLB offseason was a slow one. But it didn’t stop a few teams from having stellar offseasons, considering the financial hardships that each major-league team is facing due to the pandemic.

Nelson Cruz
Matt Graves - Jan 4, 2021

At 40-years old, Nelson Cruz might have one last chance for a contract. If the universal DH returns, Cruz would have more potential suitors, including contenders with no set option at that position. However, Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic reported in December that MLB had informed teams to “operate without the DH in the National League.” […]

Henry Aaron
Caleb Begley - Dec 8, 2020

It should not shock anyone that Henry Aaron is included on this list. From 1954-1976, Aaron dominated opposing pitchers. Few players in the history of the game have come close to repeating his feats. In fact, some might argue, none have. His 755 home runs rank second (albeit, controversially so) to Barry Bonds. He still […]
