White Sox Talk Podcast: Can the White Sox compete in 2018?

In Year 2 of the rebuild, not much is expected from the White Sox in 2018. But is there more to this team than meets the eye? Could they compete this season and potentially follow the script of the Minnesota Twins, who went from 103 losses to a wild card spot in one year?

Chuck Garfien, Ryan McGuffey and Chris Kamka dig into the possibilities and provide cases for why and why not.

Plus, the guys announce the winner of the SoxFest passes, and Kamka devotes this edition of Kamka's Corner to soon-to-be Hall of Famer Jim Thome.

Minor league infielder and Lincoln-Way East alum Dean Anna tweets he's signing with hometown White Sox

Playing for the team you grew up cheering for is a dream for many baseball players.

Dean Anna is getting a chance to live that dream with the White Sox.

A 31-year-old infielder born in Glenwood, Anna has played in numerous minor league systems, including those of the San Diego Padres, New York Yankees, Pittsburgh Pirates, St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals. Tuesday, he tweeted that the White Sox will be his next team.

Anna, a Lincoln-Way East alum and Ball State University product, was a 26th-round pick of the Padres in the 2008 draft. He spent six years in the Padres' organization and has spent the past four years at the Triple-A level with four different organizations.

Most recently, he played 112 games with the Omaha Storm Chasers, a Royals affiliate, last season, where he slashed .285/.364/.376 with 53 runs scored and 33 RBIs. Anna played 64 games at second base and 26 at third base last season.

Anna has played a few big league games, too. He played 12 games with the Yankees in 2014, picking up three hits including a home run in that stint. He also played one game with the Cardinals during the 2015 season.
