    Night court

    I only watched a little baseball last night. Watched a lot of “Night Court” though.

  2. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 14, 2014, 5:00 AM EDT

    Andrelton Simmons

    The other owners will have to ratify the move at their next meeting, but as of yesterday it’s all but official: the Braves now own the Nationals.

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2014 season. Next up: The Chicago White Sox. The Big Question: Can the White Sox rebuild the league’s worst lineup on the fly? Chicago…

  5. Indians drub White Sox to cut AL Central deficit to five games

    Sep 14, 2013, 10:16 PM EDT

    Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez turned in a solid effort while the offense provided more than enough support to cut their deficit in the AL Central to five games. Meanwhile, the Tigers lost 1-0 to the Royals. The offense put up a five-spot in the fourth on a two-run home run by Asdrubal Cabrera and a…

    Yankees 9, Red Sox 6: All of the fireworks. All of the intrigue. All of the A-Rod. But this game really came down to the bullpens. The Yankees’ was fresh and effective, the Red Sox’ wasn’t. Our more thorough write-up can be read here. For now the Red Sox probably need to think less about…

  7. Justin Morneau powers Twins to win with two homers

    Aug 9, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Justin Morneau

    This “just in” — Justin Morneau can still hit dingers. The Twins first baseman hit two of them this afternoon against the White Sox: a grand slam in the seventh off of Ramon Troncoso to give the Twins a 5-3 lead, and a solo shot in the eighth to remove the save opportunity for closer…

  8. White Sox promote infielder Marcus Semien to Triple-A

    Aug 1, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    Marcus Semien

    The White Sox still don’t know exactly what they have in Marcus Semien, but they’re moving a little closer to finding out with the decision to promote him from Double-A to Triple-A on Thursday. Semien, a 2011 sixth-round pick, busted out in the second half of last season after an uninspiring first year as a…

  9. Cardinals have interest in shortstop Erick Aybar

    Jul 30, 2013, 8:35 PM EDT

    erick aybar getty

    CBS Sports’ Danny Knobler shares this scoop: After talking to the White Sox about Alexei Ramirez and checking in with the Phillies on Jimmy Rollins, the Cardinals have now been in touch with the Angels about Erick Aybar, according to sources. Anaheim surely wants young pitching prospects in return and that’s something the Cardinals possess.…

  10. Report: White Sox turn down Cardinals’ proposal for Alexei Ramirez

    Jul 24, 2013, 2:11 AM EDT

    Alexei Ramirez, Joey Terdoslavich

    A “scouting source” told the Chicago Tribune’s Mark Gonzales that the White Sox rejected a proposal from the Cardinals that would have netted them top pitching prospect Carlos Martinez in return for shortstop Alexei Ramirez. The report doesn’t seem all that far-fetched, given that the Cardinals would surely like to improve over Pete Kozma and…

  11. The White Sox will trade anyone but Sale… and Konerko?

    Jun 27, 2013, 6:50 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn, Paul Konerko

    That’s the word from CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman. The White Sox are open to parting with younger regulars like Alex Rios, Alexei Ramirez, Dayan Viciedo and Gordon Beckham and they’d certainly be willing to move Adam Dunn and John Danks. But ace Chris Sale is unavailable, as is 10-and-5 guy Paul Konerko. Heyman doesn’t indicate whether…

    New York Yankees' Suzuki runs and watches the ball after he hit a walk-off home run to beat the Texas Rangers in their MLB American League game in New York

    Yankees 4, Rangers 3: Walkoff homer for Ichiro? Well shut my mouth. Wait, what? Well jeez, Brian, it’s just an expression. You don’t have to agree so emphatically and profanely. Angels 14, Tigers 8: Well that fifth inning got out of a hand in a hurry. Rick Porcello was beaten around for seven runs on…

  13. Chris Sale strikes out 14, but loses anyway

    Jun 15, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    Chris Sale Getty

    White Sox starter struck out 14 Astros over eight innings tonight, but ended up a tough-luck loser as his team fell 2-1. Sale allowed the first run without allowing a hit (bookended by Alexei Ramirez errors) and the second on an infield single. The Astros managed just five hits (all singles) and a walk off…

  15. The Wilson Defensive Awards were announced last night

    Nov 5, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Michael Bourn

    We mentioned this last week, but last night the inaugural Wilson Defensive Awards were announced on MLB Network. As we said previously: sponsored awards like this are kind of “whatever,” but in a world where people still take the Gold Glove awards seriously, I’m cool with any viable competitor. As you’ll recall, there were awards for the…

  16. A.J. Pierzynski scores on fielder’s indifference… wait, what?

    Aug 12, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski

    That’s the way Yahoo! wrote it up, obviously not knowing how else to describe it. The way I see it, A.J. Pierzynski was heads up, while the A’s had their heads up their you know whats. In the seventh inning Sunday of the game between the White Sox and A’s, Alexei Ramirez hit a grounder…

  17. The Rangers are preparing to move Alexi Ogando back into the rotation

    Jul 28, 2012, 12:02 PM EDT

    Alexi Ogando Reuters

    We heard earlier this week that the Rangers were considering moving Alexi Ogando back in the starting rotation. Well, they got the ball rolling in last night’s loss to the White Sox. Last night’s starter, Yu Darvish, was knocked out of the ballgame after 6 1/3 innings, so Ogando ended up pitching the final 2…

  18. The worst of the worst at the All-Star break

    Jul 9, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

  19. How much longer will the Rangers hit Michael Young fifth?

    Jun 25, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Michael Young

    There are 178 players with at least 150 plate appearances against right-handed pitching this season. Michael Young ranks 172nd in the group in OPS: 169. Rickie Weeks (Mil): .580 170. Sean Rodriguez (TB): .576 171. Danny Espinosa (Was): .575 172. Michael Young (Tex): .566 173. Jamey Carroll (Min): .565 174. Orlando Hudson (SD/ChW): .562 175.…

  20. Kevin Youkilis starts off hitting second for White Sox

    Jun 25, 2012, 6:05 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    White Sox No. 2 hitters have batted a pathetic .215/.265/.323 this season. He won’t have to be the old Kevin Youkilis to improve on that. White Sox manager Robin Ventura will ask Youkilis to help set the table for Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko following his acquisition from the Red Sox on Sunday. Here’s the…

  21. Looking at MLB’s least productive positions to date

    May 7, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Xavier Nady

    Nationals left fielders, “led” by Xavier Nady, have amassed an MLB-low .406 OPS in 101 at-bats to date, hitting just .119 with no homers and six RBI. Here’s the list of the worst OPSs by team and position so far, along with the player most responsible for the poor showing. LF Nationals – .406 (.119/.237/.168)…

  22. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 26, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Royals celebration

    Royals 8, Indians 2: I keep hitting refresh on the scoreboard but nothing changes so, apparently, this is correct and the Royals actually won a game.  Billy Butler hit two homers as Kansas City beat up on Ubaldo Jimenez. Mets 5, Marlins 1: David Wright hit a two-run homer, giving him 735 RBI in his…

  23. So, exactly how did Alexei Ramirez tick off Robin Ventura?

    Apr 6, 2012, 12:28 PM EDT

    Alexei Ramirez

    All spring long the White Sox were auditioning No. 2 hitters. First we heard that it was going to be slow-footed A.J. Pierzynski. However, that no longer worked out because manager Robin Ventura decided he wanted to bat Adam Dunn third, meaning he needed a right-handed hitter batting second to separate a pair of lefties.…

  24. 2012 OPS projections: top 10 shortstops

    Feb 9, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    Troy Tulowitzki

    Moving right along to shortstop. I have four shortstops projected to top .800, which is the same number that did so last year. .943 – Troy Tulowitzki (Rockies) – 545 AB – .916 in 2011 .891 – Hanley Ramirez (Marlins) – 538 AB – .712 in 2011 .823 – Jose Reyes (Marlins) – 546 AB…
