Our White Sox Blog has a new home

Our Chicago White Sox blog has a new home. We are excited to officially merge with Team-Superstore.com today. Click here for our new White Sox Blog Home Page.

The White Sox have been stuck in mediocrity for the last few years and that does not figure to change this year. They have good hitting, good starting pitching and a good bullpen, but are not great in any area. Alex Rios and Alexei Ramirez must find consistency at the plate. If Chris Sale becomes a CY Young contender and Paul Konerko has a MVP level year, then the White Sox can make some noise, but they figure to be around .500 and should battle for 2nd or 3rd in the AL Central.


Paul Konerko Makes #5 of Best First Baseman of 2010

Four out of the top five (first baseman) come from the American League. There is only one slight surprise on the list, the rest have been mainstays over the past few years. This may be the only position where the top five will remain the top five all season. The number one and two guys should be there all season barring injuries.

5. Paul Konerko, Chicago White Sox: Konerko the only surprise player on this list has been one of the few bright spots on the woeful White Sox this year. Konerko has found his power once again by crushing 17 home runs so far this season, which is tied for second in all of baseball. Konerko also leads his team in RBI’s- 41, slugging-.610, and on base percentage- .393. Even if Konerko keeps this pace up, the White Sox will still be under .500. The White Sox have too many problems and I wouldn’t be surprised if Konerko were traded in the next month. The White Sox are currently 24-33, nine and a half games out of first. The Twins and Tigers are going to put the White Sox out of contention by the all-star break.

Buehrle’s play in fifth inning leaves everyone in awe

If you happened to be visiting the bathroom at the most inopportune time Monday or if you were bent over searching for a contact lens or if for some deeply held yet tragically misguided reason you have sworn off TV sports, let me tell you about Mark Buehrle’s fielding play.

I’m not sure I’ll do it justice. I’m not sure replays do it justice.

This was the fifth inning of the White Sox’ 6-0 Opening Day victory over Cleveland, and their pitcher was rolling along, smooth as fresh pavement. Indians catcher Lou Marson hit a hard grounder back at Buehrle, who instinctively made like Blackhawks goalie Antti Niemi and kicked at the ball with his left leg. Big save.

The ball caromed toward the first-base line, and Buehrle gave chase. It looked futile, but somebody forgot to tell the Sox ace this. When he arrived at the intersection of Forget It and Dude, You Have No Chance, Buehrle scooped up the ball with his glove and, without looking, flipped it in one motion between his legs to first baseman Paul Konerko, who caught it barehanded.

Royals deal Teahen to White Sox

The Kansas City Royals announced Friday they traded utility player Mark Teahen to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for infielders Chris Getz and Josh Fields.


Additionally, the White Sox received cash considerations from the Royals.

Teahen, 28, who has spent his entire five-year career with the Royals, has played every position other than pitcher and catcher. In 2009, he batted. 271 with 12 homers and 50 runs batted in for Kansas City in 144 games.

In 676 career games, Teahen, who was originally dealt to the Royals from Oakland in a three-team deal that sent Carlos Beltran to Houston, has a .269 batting average, 59 homers and 293 RBI. It’s possible that Teahen could play right field next year for Chicago, as the White Sox bought out Jermaine Dye’s contract Friday.

Teahen is eligible for arbitration this offseason.

Jermaine Dye may have played last game in White Sox uniform

The White Sox packed their bags for the final time this season, shook hands and hugged following a 5-3 loss to the Tigers to end a 79-83 season.


Jermaine Dye faces an uncertain future, with the Sox likely to give him a $1 million buyout instead of both sides agreeing to a $12 million mutual option for 2010. He struggled miserably in the second half, hitting .181 with seven homers in 210 at-bats after hitting .302 with 20 long balls in 291 at-bats before the break.

“I don’t really have a feeling right now,” Dye said calmly after finishing with a .250 batting average, 27 home runs and 81 RBIs. “I just want to go home, get away from baseball like I always do and take two weeks off and re-evaluate the situation and get into my program.”

Dye hit 164 homers during his five seasons with the Sox.

Japanese player could fit with White Sox

The off-season rumor mill is fast approaching, and White Sox fans can expect to be inundated with some familiar names as general manager Kenny Williams attempts to shore up one – possibly two – outfield spots

Chone Figgins should be available, as should Carl Crawford, Bobby Abreu, Coco Crisp, Mike Cameron and a slew of other outfielders who always seem destined to land on the South Side.

Here’s a fresh name to throw on the pile:

“There’s a kid named (Norichika) Aoki, who is an Ichiro-type outfielder, hitter, runner, defensive player,” said Bobby Valentine, who is wrapping up his sixth and final season managing the the Chiba Lotte Marines in Japan. “I don’t think anybody is the caliber of Ichiro, but he is a special left-handed hitting outfielder.”

Guess what is at, or near, the top of Williams’ shopping list this season?

It’s no secret the Sox are looking for a reliable left-handed bat, and Aoki appears to fit that bill.

The 27-year-old Aoki is wrapping up his fifth full season with the Tokyo Yakult Swallows in Japan’s Central League.

In his first four seasons with the Swallows, Aoki batted .338 with a .406 on-base percentage.

Sox’s Getz aims to come back strong in ‘10

CLEVELAND – White Sox second baseman Chris Getz already was saying his goodbyes before he found out the game Tuesday against the Cleveland Indians had been postponed because of rain.

The game was called more than two hours before it was scheduled to begin. It will be made up as part of a doubleheader today starting at 3:05 p.m., though rain is in the forecast.

Leaving the team to have surgery Thursday in Philadelphia was not the way Getz wanted his season to end. The lower oblique strain that put Getz on the disabled list Aug. 21 still is bothering him, and a specialist discovered it was a sports hernia. The original plan was to address it at the end of the season, but that went out the window with the Sox’s playoff chances.

”That’s why we’re getting it done now,” Getz said. ”It’s not like a serious surgery. It’s still surgery, but I think the recovery time will take about six weeks before you can start being fully active again. That’s why it’s better to get it done now so I can fully prepare for the start of the 2010 season.”

That also closed the book on a 2009 campaign during which Getz showed signs of being a stable force at second base for years to come.

Getz hit .261 with 49 runs and stole 25 bases in 27 attempts for an American League-best 92.6 percent success rate. He was limited to 107 games because of the injury.

”We knew that this probably had to be taken care of,” Getz said. ”It was just a matter of whether or not it was going to be rest or surgery, so obviously the rest was ruled out.”

White Sox won’t make it easy for Tigers

During Detroit’s three-game stay at U.S. Cellular Field this weekend, the White Sox figure to be mathematically eliminated from the American League Central title race.

That harsh reality won’t prevent the White Sox from playing as if the season just started or as if a playoff berth is on the line with every pitch. At least, the 2009 finality better not change the team’s attitude, according to general manager Ken Williams.

“They better not quit. I don’t want to see any quit,” said Williams, during his 28-minute meeting with the media prior to Wednesday’s 8-6 loss to the Twins. “I won’t have people around me that quit, whether it be anybody in uniform or anyone in the front office, anyone around the organization that I hear even talking about it. I can’t be around people that quit.

Danks looks at 200-innings mark in awe

John Danks knows he’s getting close to reaching his target number.


Just how close the White Sox left-hander actually winds up getting to his personal goal of 200 innings pitched this season, however, is solely up to him. But Danks, in his third big league year, certainly is going to give it his best shot.

“Oh yeah,” Danks said. “That’s been a goal of mine since I’ve got to this level. I came within five innings last year. It’s just one of those things. It’s kind of a [high] watermark for a pitcher, and I’m going to try to do my best to get here.”
