    I mean, maybe he can act, but it’s probably better that he’s playing baseball.

    Jose Abreu

    Jose Abreu has made a good first impression on Albert Pujols and it has nothing to do with his home run total.

  7. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Adam Wainwright

    On HBT Daily yesterday I said Johnny Cueto would give up more than two runs in a game before Masahiro Tanaka got his first loss. Both happened yesterday, but I’m pretty sure the Nats got their third run off Cueto before the Yankees-Cubs game ended, so I’m gonna claim victory.

    MLB’s home run leader, Jose Abreu, was placed on the disabled list over the weekend with posterior tibia tendinitis in his left ankle, but it sounds like he might not have to miss much time.

    May 17, 2014, 2:38 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Texas Rangers

    Baseball is on pace for more shutouts this year than any season in the history of the game. But the problem isn’t the lack of scoring. It’s the lack of action.

    Paul Konerko Getty

    When Paul Konerko decided against retiring and re-signed with the White Sox both sides agreed that he’d be returning in a diminished role, but now that’s a reality: Konerko will not be in the Opening Day lineup today for the first time since 1998. Konerko is slated to play mostly versus left-handed pitchers and Twins…

  15. Adam Dunn is not a voracious reader

    Chicago White Sox Photo Day

    Bo Jackson is in White Sox camp today. Adam Dunn is quite the admirer of Bo’s. So much so that he broke his lifelong streak of literacy avoidance in order to learn more about the guy: Adam Dunn said the only book he has ever read is “Bo Knows Bo.” — Dan Hayes (@DanHayesCSN) March…

    Cuban first baseman Jose Abreu has just two hits in his first 13 Cactus League at-bats, but one was a double and the other was a home run, and he continues to draw rave reviews in White Sox camp for the patience he’s showing at the plate. Abreu has yet to strike out through five Cactus…

    Adam Dunn returned to the White Sox today after attending the 86th annual Academy Awards on Sunday, where “Dallas Buyers Club,” a film which he helped finance and had a cameo in, took home three awards.

    Chicago White Sox Photo Day

    Adam Dunn had a cameo as a bartender in “Dallas Buyers Club” and now it might get the White Sox designated hitter a trip to the Oscars on Sunday, writes Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com: The slugger has an invite, a ride and a reason to attend the 86th Academy Awards in Los Angeles, but he…

  19. A first in 15 years: 2014 will open without a member of the 500-HR club

    Feb 1, 2014, 3:09 PM EDT

    Albert Pujols

    With Alex Rodriguez spending the season on the restricted list, this season will be the first since 1999 to begin without a member of the 500-homer club on a major league roster. The last time MLB was played without a 500-HR guy was 15 years ago. Eddie Murray retired after the 1997 season, leaving a…

  20. Paul Konerko is returning to the White Sox

    Dec 4, 2013, 9:44 AM EDT

    Adam Dunn, Paul Konerko

    Paul Konerko pondered retirement following the worst season of his career, but Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the 37-year-old will return to the White Sox for another go-around. Konerko hit just .244 with 12 homers and a .669 OPS in 126 games this year and the White Sox signed Cuban slugger Jose Abreu to…

    Rays logo

    Edgar Martinez’s and David Ortiz‘s Hall of Fame cases often get bogged down in “they’re only part-time players” and “anyone can just DH” arglebargle. But when you look around you realize that there are fewer and fewer guys who can make the full-time DH thing work. Indeed, there are 15 teams who use a DH…

  23. White Sox open to re-signing Paul Konerko, but lack at-bats

    Oct 29, 2013, 4:02 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn, Paul Konerko

    They signed Cuban first baseman Jose Abreu to a six-year, $68 million contract and Adam Dunn is still around as a should-be designated hitter, but the White Sox haven’t closed the door on re-signing free agent Paul Konerko. Konerko is pondering retirement following a horrible age-37 season in which he hit just .244 with 12…

  24. Jason Giambi walks off for Indians after Chris Perez blows lead

    Sep 24, 2013, 10:25 PM EDT

    Jason Giambi

    There’s a little magic left in Jason Giambi‘s bat after all. The 42-year-old former MVP, who entered with a .177 average in 181 at-bats this season, hit a walkoff homer off Addison Reed in the bottom of the ninth, giving the Indians a 5-4 win over the White Sox on Tuesday. It was the Indians’…
