White Sox Talk Podcast: How the Adam Eaton/Todd Frazier fight helped start the White Sox rebuild

Adam Eaton and Todd Frazier might not be with the White Sox anymore, but their feud in 2016 helped pave the way for the White Sox rebuild and why the franchise is where it is today.

On the latest White Sox Talk Podcast, Chuck Garfien, Ryan McGuffey and Chris Kamka go over the events of that crazy, fateful 2016 season that caused the White Sox to eventually trade Chris Sale, Jose Quintana, Eaton, Frazier and many others (1:10). It started with the Adam and Drake LaRoche saga during spring training (2:40) and the dysfunction that occurred after that (07:00).

How and why things unraveled after their 23-10 start and the fight in the clubhouse between Eaton and Frazier (13:00). The problems continued with Chris Sale cutting up the throwback jerseys and remains alive today with the latest fighting words on the field and in the press between Eaton and Frazier (17:20). Buckle up for this one.

Andrew Vaughn wants to wear No. 99 as homage to Ricky 'Wild Thing' Vaughn

We're not saying Andrew Vaughn is ready for the Major Leagues, but...

Vaughn is, of course, referring to Charlie Sheen's Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn from the 1989 film 'Major League.' Sheen's character in the movie is a hot-headed, hard-throwing pitcher for the Cleveland Indians with a checkered past. Real-life Andrew Vaughn is a White Sox first base prospect, selected by the team in the first round of the 2019 draft.

So hopefully, outside of their shared last names, there don't end up being too many parallels between the two.

As for Vaughn's wish, the only White Sox player to ever don the No. 99 was Manny Ramirez back in 2010. Big shoes to fill.
