What The White Sox Must Do Next

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.

Substances, Silvy & White Sox Stuff

Marc "Silvy" Silverman takes a break from hosting afternoon drive on the White Sox flagship station ESPN 1000 to address our concerns about White Sox coverage compared to Cubs coverage in Chicago. Meanwhile we ask how concerned White Sox fans should be now that Major League Baseball is cracking down on pitchers using foreign substances to doctor baseballs. Is anyone on this team about to see their production drop as a result?

White Sox Versus The World

Your Chicago White Sox sit in first place. Even with several major long-term injuries and a polarizing manager, this season brings hope to Sox fans everywhere. Yet their flagship radio station's talkers are telling people they aren't even close to being the biggest story in Chicago sports? It is us against the world, and that is just the way Sox fans should like it. We also talk Lance Lynn & Carlos Rodon extension possibilities, cursing translators, and if the standings really matter that much right now.

Tony La Russa: White Sox Lightning Rod

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. Then again, he walks to the plate to a song he sings. Are you surprised?
