When is the next time a Hall of Fame plaque will feature a White Sox cap?

When Frank Thomas was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2014 it was the culmination of the career of one of the greatest players in White Sox history.

South Side Morning 5: Is anything more important than that alarm clock

1. The venerable Bruce Levine reported this week that talks for Jose Quintana are intensifying, that interested parties are sweetening their offers, and that more teams are involved than the publicly discussed bids by the Yankees, Astros and Pirates.

White Sox’s Michael Kopech throws 110-mph pitch (VIDEO)

The White Sox organization has been a seller in the offseason, and the team is looking to go younger, collecting many prospects in the process.

Avisail Garcia’s chances of a turnaround

The built up mass, the pulsating bubble of anxiety exacerbated by every sub-replacement straggler wasting plate appearances on the White Sox major league roster while they were trying desperately to contend, deflated quickly when Chris Sale was traded to Boston last month.
