KANSAS CITY -- This was not how the second half of the season was supposed to start for the White Sox. Not even close. In fact, take the worst-case scenario imaginable, go a rung or two below, and that’s where the White Sox are sitting following an 11-0 whitewash at

Lopez shines, but White Sox fall on walk-off

@goodforball
July 14, 2019

OAKLAND -- At least the White Sox didn’t have to look hard or long for the salve that would ease the sting of another loss to the Athletics, who benefited from shortstop Jose Rondon’s ninth-inning throwing error to prevail Sunday, 3-2. • Box score Rather than dwell on the frustration

White Sox designate Minaya for assignment

@goodforball
July 13, 2019

OAKLAND -- The White Sox cleared roster room for Dylan Covey, Saturday’s starting pitcher, by designating right-hander Juan Minaya for assignment. Minaya had pitched adequately, recording a 3.90 ERA in 22 appearances. But after posting a 1.15 ERA in his first 11 games (two earned runs in 15 2/3 innings),

OAKLAND -- For Dylan Covey, banners and bunting might as well have been draped around the Coliseum, and the singing of the National Anthem should have been punctuated by a flyover. Because for him, Saturday’s game against the Athletics represented his personal World Series. Starting against the team that launched

OAKLAND -- Ivan Nova is too good to be pitching like this. That thought inevitably arises after a game such as Friday night’s, when Nova surrendered 10 hits through six innings in a 5-1 loss to the Athletics. Nova has been a near-constant asset to his teams. He finished with

July 10, 2019

CHICAGO – Rick Hahn isn’t laser focused on the 2019 White Sox finishing at .500 or even above as a representation of the end of the beginning of the organization’s rebuild. There’s no question the general manager would rather see his team win much more than lose. But just as
