  • White Sox second to none at first base Jul 29, 2014 12:31 AM
    Historically, the White Sox have been known as a franchise successful at throwing the baseball. You won’t find many years over the last decade or so that would be considered thin pitching seasons. Usually, the Sox have excelled in that area. In fact, since 2003, no team in baseball has made more quality starts than they have. They’re good for 1,029 of them over that time. It’s rare that we go into a season with great concern over the pitching staff. More often than not, it’s a point of comfort.

     
  • Some help for questions that need answers Jul 20, 2014 10:26 PM
    Here are a couple of questions White Sox fans wish they had the answers for right now. Instead, the uncertainty is causing acid reflux because of the anxiety. Chris Rongey will try to help.

     
  • Bullpen hardly Sox’ biggest concern Jul 16, 2014 8:47 PM
    The bullpen has been an issue, but it’s not the biggest problem facing the White Sox, says Sox Insider Chris Rongey.

     
  • Abreu, Ramirez both deserving of star status Jul 6, 2014 7:27 PM
    Unless you’ve been marooned on an island for the last three months, you’ve heard about White Sox rookie Jose Abreu. And unless you’ve just returned from a walkabout in the Australian Outback, you know that Abreu has played the first half like an all star. But if any of those apply, you returned home just in time to find out that Abreu has been rewarded with an All Star Game appearance in his first season in the big leagues. If you’re one of these people, let me just tell you that his selection is absolutely deserving.

     
  • Pattern says White Sox a .500 team Jun 29, 2014 10:47 PM
    Barely past the midpoint of the season, the White Sox have displayed again just how quickly things can change, as White Sox Insider Chris Rongey explains in this week's column.

     
  • How a father’s love fueled a child’s baseball dreams Jun 15, 2014 6:33 PM
    While ballpark were filled Sunday with Father’s Day crowds, White Sox Insider Chris Rongey took time to look back on the man who let him chase his baseball dreams as a young child growing up in St. Louis: his dad.

     
  • Can this White Sox team make a long run? Jun 8, 2014 5:48 PM
    If there’s anything this season has been so far for the White Sox, it’s consistent. Consistent in the sense that it fluctuates at such a rapid pace, it seems like nothing changes. And it leaves them hovering around .500, as Chris Rongey explains in this week's Sox Insider column.

     
  • Why do pitchers keep getting injured? May 19, 2014 5:30 AM
    At some point this week, the White Sox will celebrate the return of Chris Sale to a pitching rotation that desperately needs him. Although some of the work turned out by the starting staff has been strong, the results have been mostly inconsistent — especially since Sale left for the disabled list last month. As has been broadly discussed this season, the Sox aren’t the only team with the same problem. All you have to do is take a look around Major League Baseball and you’ll find some of the best pitchers and players on the DL and missing significant time — many in their low-to-mid 20s.

     
  • White Sox’ issues not insurmountable May 11, 2014 10:29 PM
    The White Sox have improvements to make, and they're not unreasonable. It’s far too early to start talking trades, but we can examine a few of the White Sox’ needs at this point — and they’re not necessarily about the acquisition of new personnel.

     
  • White Sox on the wrong end of another weird replay Apr 20, 2014 8:36 PM
    If you watched the sixth inning of Sunday’s White Sox game, you saw one of the most perplexing calls in quite some time. Chris Rongey, our White Sox insider, is still baffled by it, but he also has a few thoughts about what MLB should do to improve the situation.

     
  • Hard to recall a White Sox team starting like this Apr 14, 2014 7:35 PM
    This brand of White Sox baseball is something fans haven’t seen in quite some time. While the timely hitting is hard to believe, so are the struggles by the pitching staff, says Chris Rongey.

     
  • Sox offense looks exciting, but bullpen and defense must improve Apr 6, 2014 9:43 PM
    After a single week of play, we try to extrapolate a 162-game campaign because sometimes uncertainty is a little too difficult to handle. The truth is, there’s still a lot about the 2014 White Sox that we don’t know because of the arrival of new, young, unproven talent and it will be weeks or months before we have a clearer idea of this team’s identity.

     
  • Good reasons to expect enjoyable Sox season Mar 31, 2014 11:06 AM
    Despite the low expectations, 2014 could still be a very fun year for the White Sox.

     
  • Chris Rongey: Manto firing unfair but expected Sep 29, 2013 11:38 PM
    Though Chris Rongey is not convinced the White Soxí poor hitting this year is on fired coach Jeff Manto, knowing how baseball is he's not surprised it happened. Yet, in reality, Manto ó or any hitting coach ó isnít responsible for an aging Paul Konerkoís poor performance, by Konerko standards. Nor is he responsible for a perennial home run-hitting team not hitting home runs. And heís certainly not responsible for the awful defense.

     
  • Nobody knows, so itís time to give Konerko proper send-off Sep 23, 2013 5:30 AM
    Paul Konerko has yet to say whether he considers this to be it for his career, and he says he will wait until the off-season to decide. All we can really do is assume the next five home games will be his last here in Chicago. So it's time to give him the send-off he deserves.

     
  • Rongey: Pitching numbers can be so deceiving Sep 10, 2013 8:18 AM
    What's intriguing about Monday night's matchup between the White Sox' Chris Sale and the Detroit Tigers' Max Scherzer is that it provides a startling contrast to what the two pitchers have been able to enjoy this year.

     
  • Rongey: White Sox already have head start on 2014 Sep 2, 2013 8:00 AM
    While we donít know precisely how long it will take for the White Sox to get better, it is apparent based on recent comments by general manager Rick Hahn that there doesnít seem to be much intent to concede next season for the sake of doing that. But do they really even have to make that point? Chris Rongey is not so sure they do.

     
  • Big weekend for Sox’ Phegley as Flowers flounders Aug 26, 2013 5:49 AM
    In being asked to assess the current state of White Sox affairs, A.J. Pierzynski said over the weekend that Tyler Flowers might have better benefited from playing in front of a veteran catcher as opposed to Hector Gimenez, who had only appeared in 11 major-league games prior to this season.

     
  • Dunn far from problem for White Sox Aug 18, 2013 9:53 PM
    Adam Dunn is ó believe it or not ó actually is having a decent season While subpar for his career standards, Dunn still is producing better than anyone else on the White Sox roster.

     
  • Talking White Sox trades and Konerko's future Aug 12, 2013 5:58 AM
    Chris Rongey discusses the recent flurry of White Sox trades and ponders the future of one of the franchise's all-time best hitters, Paul Konerko.
