  1. Hey, friends. James and I spoke to Ben Badler of Baseball America regarding the White Sox international side of things. Give it a listen HERE.
  2. Omar Vizquel spent two seasons in the White Sox farm, managing Winston-Salem and Birmingham. I detail the decision to move on from the 52-year-old HERE.
  3. The White Sox released their latest complete 40-man roster prior to the November 20th 7:00pm CT deadline. James Fox details the decisions to keep the seven players who are safe from Rule 5 eligibility.
  4. Turning 28 at the end of November, freshly posted NPB product Yoshitomo Tsutsugo will be among the youngest free agents available this offseason. With 20-30 home run potential from the left side, it would be silly for the White Sox to not at least sit down for a cup of coffee with this kid.
  5. The White Sox were willing to dump international money in order to avoid Welington Castillo's $500,000 buyout. James Fox explains the significance of the transaction and its implications HERE.
  6. It's about that time. World Series is complete and the offseason shuffle is officially a go. James Fox has it all covered with a breakdown of the current White Sox 40-man roster and prepares you for the Rule-5.
  7. Clinton Cole had a conversation with long-time White Sox MLB beat writer Scott Merkin about a plethora of topics. I mean...it's Merkin. How could you not give this a listen?
  8. Fans of Luis Alexander Basabe were hoping to see him potentially play on the south side in 2019 after what could have been a major leap in development. However, Basabe dealt with several injuries that split up his season. His overall numbers don't look great, but after a little digging, our Ken Sawilchik found some fascinating discoveries. Read the interview and feature Ken did on Basabe HERE.
  9. Title says it all! Here is the second of two articles covering the 2019 Birmingham Barons. This piece focuses solely on pitchers. To read the 2019 Barons hitters season review, click HERE.
  10. Our Sean Williams is all over White Sox Arizona Fall League coverage. His latest report highlights a Fall-Star and a standout first baseman.
  11. James Fox put the next steps of the White Sox future in perspective. This is about to be a very interesting year.
  12. It's part one of the 2019 White Sox Double-A affiliate recap. Get caught up on several names who spent time in Birmingham this year, beginning with the bats.
  13. Our Sean Williams got a look at several White Sox prospects who are participating in the Arizona Fall League this season. Read Sean's report HERE to get up to date on the production, or lack thereof, within the Sox system.
  14. Our James Fox reviewed the White Sox high-level rookie affiliate. Learn about some of the names who put their stamp in the Pioneer Rookie League.
  15. Our Ken Sawilchick spoke to White Sox 2017 14th round draft pick, Alex Destino. The soon-to-be 24-year-old outfielder (B&T LH) slashed .298/.376/.476 in 112 low-A games this year and later made his debut with the Winston-Salem Dash. He smashed 17 homers and drove in 64. Destino is an interesting story, and Ken allows Alex to tell you all about it.
