#WhiteSox  announce 2014 schedule 
<p>Although the Chicago White Sox still have a few weeks left in their 2013 season, most — if not all — Pale Hose fans have begun looking forward to next year. With this in mind, the 2014 MLB schedule was announced Tuesday afternoon, giving the White Sox and their followers a glimpse of what should be a very interesting [...]</p>

#WhiteSox looking to avoid a sweep vs #Yankees 
<p>For Chris Sale and the Chicago White Sox, Tuesday night’s match up against the New York Yankees is yet another opportunity to play the role of spoiler. For the Yankees —who currently sit three games out of a playoff spot— tonight is a chance to take a step toward reaching the postseason for the fifth [...]</p>

#WhiteSox have future star closer 
<p>Before the season began, I openly stated that Chicago White Sox’ right-hander Addison Reed had the skill set and mentality to become one of the game’s elite closers. After setting a White Sox rookie record with 29 saves in 2012, I certainly wasn’t the only one who had high hopes for Reed this year. Picking [...]</p>

John Danks and #WhiteSox looking for fourth straight win 
<p>The 2013 season hasn’t exactly gone by plan for the Chicago White Sox. After wining 85 games a season ago and finishing just short of a playoff berth, many expected the White Sox to at least be in contention once again this year. However, as we near the final month of the season, the South [...]</p>

Garcia a star in the making for the #WhiteSox 
<p>Within minutes of being acquired by the Chicago White Sox in a blockbuster three-team deal last month, Avisail Garcia was given the pressure of becoming the next star on the South Side. That pressure only grew for the 22-year-old outfielder when he was called up from Triple-A and made his White Sox debut on Aug. [...]</p>

Chris Sale only getting better for the #WhiteSox  
<p>In his first year as a starter for the Chicago White Sox in 2012, Chris Sale emerged as one of the top arms in baseball. However, after dominating the American League with a 2.19 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP before the All-Star break, the left-hander faltered in the second half, posting a 4.03 ERA and [...]</p>

#WhiteSox  should come away happy after Johnson's debut 
<p>Given the circumstances, Erik Johnson pitched above expectations in the Chicago White Sox 6-5 loss to the New York Yankees Wednesday night in the Bronx. The 23-year-old right-hander was making his Major League debut at legendary Yankee Stadium against one of baseball’s most star-studded lineups. Despite allowing seven hits and walking three Yankee hitters, Johnson [...]</p>

#WhiteSox should look into 6 man rotation 
<p>Although September has a whole different feeling this year than it did in 2012, the Chicago White Sox still have some important baseball to play as the 2013 campaign wraps up. The next month won’t be spent fighting for a divisional title, but the White Sox’ coaching staff and front office will have the opportunity [...]</p>

Andre Rienzo looks for first Major League win as the #WhiteSox  take on the #Royals  
<p>With a 3.70 ERA in his first four major league starts, Chicago White Sox rookie hurler Andre Rienzo has impressed since making his debut on July 30 in Cleveland. Despite having three quality outings, however, Rienzo is still searching for his first victory. The 25-year-old right-hander will try to tackle that feat tonight as the White [...]</p>

#WhiteSox  will be happy they held on to Alexei in the next few years
<p>His defense has certainly been suspect at times this season, and his overall power numbers have also taken a hit. However, Alexei Ramirez has become the Chicago White Sox’ spark plug in the second half. Posting a .298/.316/.427 slash line since the All-Star break, and almost doubling his RBI total from the first half, Ramirez [...]</p>

#WhiteSox  found their number two starter? 
<p>Even before he was dealt to the Boston Red Sox, it was obvious Jake Peavy was no longer the number one starter for the Chicago White Sox. Chris Sale received his first Opening Day start this year, and the left-hander was the ace for the Pale Hose from day one of the 2013 season. Although [...]</p>

#WhiteSox future gets a little brighter after dealing Rios to #Rangers  
<p>After failing to make a deal involving Alex Rios before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, many wondered if the Chicago White Sox had missed a golden opportunity by not moving their right-fielder. However, after the Texas Rangers claimed Rios off waivers on Thursday afternoon, the White Sox were able to strike a deal with [...]</p>
