This week, Brett Ballantini and Joe Resis discuss a scorching Hot Stove for the White Sox, with the free agent signings of Dallas Keuchel and Gio González. Is the rotation finally Covey-proofed? Will White Sox Twitter chill? Have the White Sox really not been meaningfully in first place since 2012?

Actor (final credit: murdered by Albert Einstein in "Carnage Hall"), musician (Ethnocentric Republicans), and Nerf hoops champion, Wiffleball aficionado and onetime bilingual kindergarten teacher, Brett Ballantini also writes about baseball, basketball and sometimes hockey, publishing at the NBA, MLB, NHL, and for Slam, Hoop, Sporting News, the Athletic, and others. He was CSN Chicago’s Blackhawks beat writer for their first Stanley Cup season of 2009-10, and took over the White Sox beat after that. He currently is the editor-in-chief of South Side Hit Pen and managing editor of SB Nation's South Side Sox. He also wrote a book about Ozzie Guillén but is running out of space, so follow him on Twitter @BrettBallantini and he'll probably tell you even more about himself than you ever wanted to know.

Author profile

Joe graduated in 2018 with a degree in economic consulting from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business, also minoring in Japanese and studying abroad in Nagoya for a semester. He grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, but moved to Indianapolis after graduation. The White Sox are his favorite team in all of sports, and he considers it a blessing to have the opportunity to write about them on this great platform. He squeaked by with the 2018 #SoxMath championship despite intense competition from colleague Ashley Sanders. That experience helped put him on the map, as he started contributing to South Side Sox shortly afterward. Joe looks forward to delivering all sorts of content about our team.
