  • Powell: It’s Going To Be A Fight To The Finish For The Cubs

    By Kevin Powell This is not what the Cubs wanted or needed. But here we are with 19 games remaining on their schedule, and the Cubs are in a tight division race with not one, but two teams. “It’s tough, it’s really tough,” Addison Russell said after a 3-2 loss to the Brewers that cut their lead to just one game in the Central. “I feel like this year the rain delays have been the story.  We’ve played a tough […]

  • Powell: White Sox Make The Right Call By Promoting Michael Kopech

    By Kevin Powell Reward one of your top prospects who has done everything he possibly can to show he belongs in the majors or manipulate his service time and keep him in the minors? That’s what White Sox fans have been debating over the past month while Michael Kopech was dominating the International League. The debate was settled Sunday afternoon when the team announced the 22-year-old would make his major league debut on Tuesday. “Each of these decisions are motivated […]

  • Powell: First Half Takeaways For The Cubs And White Sox

    By Kevin Powell It’s not exactly the official halfway point of the MLB season, but the All-Star break is a good time to take a look at what went wrong, what went right and what teams need to accomplish over the final few months of the season. For the Cubs, they’ve played a majority of the season without Yu Darvish, Kris Bryant spent time on the DL for the first time and they still managed to finish with the best […]

  • Powell: It Was Only Five Years, But Jake Arrieta Provided Countless Memories For Cubs Fans

    WRIGLEY FIELD – Jake Arrieta had so many monumental moments in a Cubs uniform – two no-hitters, postseason brilliance, a Cy Young, and, of course, a World Series title – it’s easy to forget he was only with the club for five years. And he only started four full seasons. Which makes his time in Chicago even more impressive. “It was a really special time to be a Cub,” Arrieta said on Tuesday. “And it still is for these guys […]

  • Powell: Manny Machado Watch Has Begun In Chicago

    By Kevin Powell He may be playing on the South Side, but both teams in town will be keeping a close eye on free-agent-to-be Manny Machado this week. The three-time All-Star showed flashes of why he’s worth a nine-figure contract in the Orioles 3-2 win over the White Sox Monday night — showcasing his skills by smacking a homer about twenty rows deep to left, followed by a perfect throw to home plate to get Yolmer Sanchez on a relay […]

  • Powell: Crosstown Classic Highlights The State Of The Cubs, White Sox

    By Kevin Powell “It’s really easy to lose, and it’s very difficult to win,” Joe Maddon said on Friday before his club won the opener of the Crosstown Classic. Lately, it’s been extremely difficult for the rebuilding White Sox to win. They’re 9-27 record is the worst start in club history. It’s an ugly product the South Siders are producing these days. But it’s called a rebuild, and nobody gets that more than their North Side neighbors. “It’s not easy, […]

  • White Sox Pitcher Danny Farquhar Visits Clubhouse; ‘He Looked Really, Really Good’

    By Kevin Powell GUARANTEED RATE FIELD – On Monday, Danny Farquhar returned home to rest with family after 17 days in the hospital. The White Sox reliever was recovering  from a brain hemorrhage suffered during a home game last month. On Tuesday, the 31-year-old was back in the home clubhouse at Guaranteed Rate Field. “When you’re in (the hospital), you’re always setting goals,” fellow reliever Nate Jones said. “That, for Danny, didn’t change. He had a goal of getting discharged […]
