Chicago Needs To Shut Tim Anderson Down Until The Playoffs

Chicago Needs To Shut Tim Anderson Down Until The Playoffs

Tim Anderson does not need to play another game this regular season. The Chicago White Sox need to save their star player for the postseason

Chicago White is without star player Tim Anderson, but the All-Star shortstop is showing signs of improvement while he’s on the injured list.

There’s no timetable on Anderson’s return and the White Sox want to be as cautious as possible going into the postseason.

 “We know what the ultimate goal is. We know what we’re trying to do,” Anderson told NBC Sports Chicago.

“We’re trying to get healthy and come back as quick as I can, but also be 100 percent and be smart about it and know when to go.”

Over the last few years, Anderson has become the face of the White Sox. He has stepped into that leadership role and has not looked back.

Though we don’t like them, injuries are a part of the game and Anderson can’t quite figure out what the injury is.

“I don’t know what it is, to be honest,” Anderson said Wednesday in Oakland. “It’s really just soreness. I know you’re tired of hearing that, but you know, that’s just what it is, really. I feel like it’s going away. Hopefully I can get back in there pretty soon.”


“It kind of flared back up when we played against the Cubs. … I was just sore every morning. But I feel good now. Every day has been getting better. Being able to move around a little bit more the way that I want to.”

Should the White Sox shut down the star shortstop?

Why not, they have nothing to lose and they are already going to win the American League Central Division.

If you’re the White Sox, you want to be at full strength going into the postseason, and if that means shutting down your star player until the end of the season, then so be it.

Anderson has had an impressive season. He made his first All-Star team this year and has a .302 batting average with 14 home runs, 53 RBI, and 17 stolen bases through 108 games.

It’s time to pull the plug on our MLBbro for the regular season. The White Sox can’t risk losing him and have him miss any portion of the playoffs.

Last season, Anderson went off in the postseason, despite the White Sox losing to the Oakland Athletics in the American League Wild Card Series.

Anderson hit .643 during that series with a .786 slugging percentage. The White Sox will need Anderson to have another performance like that in the postseason, but he can’t do that if he’s hurt.

That’s why he needs to rest up and get himself ready for October. There’s no question he’ll be good to go when October rolls around and he’ll be ready to help lead his team to a World Series appearance.

If Anderson does come back before the playoffs, don’t be surprised if he’s used sparingly.

The White Sox say they will do everything they can to make sure he’s  good come playoff time.

if they aren’t shutting him down, then what are we really talking about ?






Brian Goodwin had another go ahead homer for the White Sox on Sunday and another hit on Monday.

He has 7 hits in his last 25 at bats, 7 runs, 3 homers & 5 RBI. He’s making a strong case to be on the post season roster.


Brian Goodwin’s Iconic Bat Flip Let’s You Know That He’s All About That Action

Chicago White Sox outfielder Brian Goodwin hit his first walk-off home run on Sunday against the Cleveland Indians, and it was one to remember. The best part about his walk-off home run was the iconic bat flip. It sent social media into a frenzy. Goodwin flipped that bat so high that it probably hasn’t landed yet.


Bat flips have become a part of the game and Goodwin certainly did not hold back with his.

“We just got dogs,” Goodwin told NBC Sports after hitting the walk-off against the Indians. “We wanted it as bad as any game we’ve had this season.”

In his first year with the White Sox, Goodwin has made quite the impression in the Windy City. 


Brian Goodwin Knows A Thing Or Two About First Impressions


He’s the type of player that will come in and do whatever it takes to make the team better. Whether he’s in the starting lineup or coming off the bench, Goodwin will leave his all on the field.


“We know everybody out there is battling their ass off, they’re doing everything they can to get the job done. That’s what we take pride in,” Goodwin said. “We’re just thankful for our guys going up there and fighting. We have anybody up there, any type of situation, we’ve got confidence that the next guy is going to get it done, like they have been doing. And when it happens, we’re grateful, and when it doesn’t, we just look for the next opportunity. But we never stop fighting.”

“We got a bunch of dudes that come out and give you everything you want and then some. And no backing down.”

When Goodwin joined the White Sox, he teamed up with fellow MLBbro Tim Anderson and the two have two of the most iconic bat flips in recent years. They both bring that soulful spice that fits perfectly in Chicago and most importantly they are having fun on that field.



Goodwin has put up impressive numbers in his first season with the White Sox. Through 40 games he’s hitting .248 with six home runs and 19 RBI.

He’s been swinging a hot stick lately as he’s carrying a four-game hitting streak. In his last two games he’s homered, so this brother has been seeing the ball well.

Goodwin is a key role player for a Chicago White Sox team that is thinking championship. No cap. The veteran is willing to serve in any capacity needed. 

“We know where we’re trying to go, and that’s all the way through October,” Goodwin said. “Not to get ahead of ourselves, we all know that we’ve got to take care of business, we’ve got to take care of the little things, the details, and make sure we handle our stuff the right way.”

“But everybody’s on the same page. We’ve got the same agenda. We know where we’re trying to go and where we want to be when this season ends up.”

There’s some exciting baseball being played on Chi-Town’s South Side and Goodwin has something to do with that. He’s an MLBbro that could cause some ruckus in the playoffs similiar to how Howie Kendrick helped the title-starved Washington Nationals get over the hump with some key bombs in 2019.
