The Chicago White Sox don’t seem to know when to quit.
Look no further than last Friday night for an example. Down 6-4 to the Tampa Bay Rays in the bottom of the ninth inning, following another poor outing from closer Matt Lindstrom, the White Sox staged a rally which included Adam Eaton hustling down the line on what appeared to be a game-ending double play and a walk-off grand slam off the bat of Jose Abreu.
Just another night on the South Side of Chicago.
Now, much of the excitement surrounding this team is thanks to guys like Eaton and Abreu, who were brought in by general manager Rick Hahn during an eventful offseason. Unfortunately, many of the challenges facing the team are also courtesy of newly minted White Sox contributors like Scott Downs and Felipe Paulino.
Let’s size up each of the moves that were made by the White Sox this winter, assigning a grade for each acquisition based upon their performance so far in 2014.
