Chicago White Sox 2020 Season Preview

Joey Ricotta | February 28th, 2020

Joey Ricotta | October 1st, 2019 

Let the fun begin. Playoffs? You’re talking about…playoffs? Yes, Jim Mora. Yes, we are. The best time of the year. Soon all four major sports will be playing at the same time. We can go back and forth discussing and arguing whether Major League Baseball should keep its current one-game Wild Card playoff setup, but the fact of the matter is, it’s downright entertaining. It’s exciting to watch two teams fight it out, with it all on the line, in a winner-take-all single-elimination style game. You never know what’s going to happen. The amount of drama and emotion hanging on the balance of every pitch is what makes baseball the greatest game in the world.

John Supowitz | April 16th, 2019

Austin Meadows
If you were to ask anyone which team would have the best winning percentage almost three weeks into the season, would you guess it was Tampa Bay Rays? Not you didn’t, don’t lie. They recently have won six of their last seven and Meadows was a significant contributor. The former first-round pick is taking advantage of his first opportunity at a major league starting gig. He had four home runs this week and led the league in AVG (.632), SLG (1.368), OBP (.708), and tied for the most RBI with 11. Continue reading
