Kiss'Em Goodbye: Chicago White Sox

9

Christina Kahrl, Kevin Goldstein and ESPN Insider

If Jake Peavy is healthy and Paul Konerko re-signs, do they have enough to catch the Twins in the American League Central?

Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fade—whether in September (or before), the League Division Series, League Championship Series or World Series. It combines a broad overview of this season from Buster Olney, a take from Baseball Prospectus, a look toward an immediate 2011 move courtesy of Rumor Central and Kevin Goldstein's farm system overview. You can find all the teams on one page by going here.

A 6-0 win for the Sox gets the baseball season in Chicago underway.

A gorgeous April afternoon in the Cell in Chicago, with the temps in the 70s, and the Indians in town for Opening Day? It's a far sight removed from the Cubs opener where a friend turned blue, certainly. It was almost a pity that it was a Mark Buehrle start, given Buehrle's rep for fast work, but it was perhaps unsurprising that the South Side's southpaw of choice made fast work of the Tribe.

Prospectus Q&A: Paul Konerko

0

David Laurila

The South Side slugger drops by to talk about his time with the Sox, the power hitters he's played with, and more.

Paul Konerko has somewhat quietly established himself as one the most prolific sluggers in White Sox history. The humble first sacker has never put up the gaudy numbers of a Frank Thomas, Jim Thome, or Magglio Ordonez-players who have overshadowed him in his 11 seasons on the South Side-but he has consistently helped to put runs on the board. A 1994 first-round pick by the Dodgers who came to Chicago via Cincinnati, Konerko currently ranks second in ChiSox history in home runs, and is third in RBI, total bases, and extra-base hits. As of mid-September, the 33-year-old Konerko's career numbers were a workmanlike .278/.352/.491 with 324 round trippers.

Fantasy Beat: Do All Sleepers Awaken?

3

Marc Normandin

Not every gamble's worth that roll of the dice, but some whose stock has fallen might be worth picking late.

One of the best parts about getting to construct your fantasy baseball team is figuring out which players are likely to have breakout seasons, and which will become the future stars. However, you also need to devote attention to players who are not as much of a sure thing and who have recently put up disappointing numbers. This week, we'll take a look at some of those underwhelming performances from 2008, in order to see if there is anything worth taking a chance on for your 2009 team.

The Sox played their way into October with two dramatic wins this week, while the Rays won their division with six dramatic months. Who holds the advantage?

Each year, the White Sox graciously host a University of Chicago alumni event, where Christina Kahrl and I speak to 150 or more nerds in the U.S. Cellular Conference & Learning Center. The group gets tickets to the game too-which usually means a contest against the Orioles or the Royals, or perhaps a thrilling interleague tilt against the Pirates; clubs that don't motivate many Chicagoans to give up an afternoon from their short summers to come out to the ballpark.

Schrodinger's Bat: Taking Advantage

0

Dan Fox

Revisiting baserunning metrics to see how much credit, if any, should go to runners when a pitcher makes a mistake.

"We don't have a 40 home run guy anymore... We have to reduce mistakes, take advantage of every opportunity we get... We need to improve on moving runners over from second to third and our base running. There can be an eight- to 10-game swing in a season just from base running."
--Syd Thrift, in 2001, when he served as the Orioles Vice President of Baseball Operations

A rematch of the World Champs and the NL pennant winners is what Derek's clicker dials up this time around.

It's been a busy week for both ballclubs. The Astros had the season debut of seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens on Thursday, making the decision to have Clemens go against the Minnesota Twins at home, rather than pitch against the White Sox in Chicago. Clemens was hardly dominant in a game where young phenom Francisco Liriano emerged victorious.

Ozzie Guillen and Brad Radke have some financial advice, the Royals chime in on revenue sharing, Paul Konerko may decline a promotion, and Theo Epstein is back.

"I don't want to be the guy in the spotlight. That's what people thought I was going to be after we won. People think, 'Oh, Ozzie wins a world championship, he's going to be all over the place, on TV all the time.' I hope this shows people they've got the wrong idea about Ozzie."
--White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, on turning down numerous sponsorship deals in favor of a few select companies (Chicago Tribune)
