Chicago White Sox

Lots of shutouts yesterday. Including one that was the Platonic Ideal of a baseball game. At least if you have taste and stuff.

Notes from a wild game in Chicago.

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

On the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings and with the Red Sox in town for a three-game series, the White Sox wore these “Boston Strong” shirts during pregame warmups Tuesday …

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.

One of the elements helped Jason Kipnis get a single on Saturday afternoon.

Jose Abreu: country strong.

If a pitcher has a foreign substance on his hand and no one is there to complain about it, does it still raise a stink?

Danny Salazar recorded 11 outs against the White Sox tonight. Ten of them were strikeouts.

White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

A ton of guys had multi-homer games yesterday. Ryan Braun led the pack with his three. I’m sure that won’t bother anyone.

Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez each went yard twice. And I contemplate the return of the game-winning RBI stat.

Nate Jones walked both batters he faced Thursday and now the White Sox have placed him on the disabled list with a strained hip.

After an oblique injury landed Gordon Beckham on the DL to begin the year, he’s ready to begin a minor league rehab assignment.

The Blue Jays 2013 plan worked out pretty well for their second game in 2014. And Jonathan Papelbon shows us the meaning of accountability. In his own special way.

Does winning on Opening Day mean anything? I dunno, ask Oakland and Seattle.

Throughout spring training the widely held assumption was that the White Sox would use Nate Jones as their closer after trading Addison Reed to the Diamondbacks, but manager Robin Ventura avoided making any sort of official announcement and now we know why: Matt Lindstrom is going to be Chicago’s closer.

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…

MLB.com’s Scott Merkin reports that the White Sox have re-signed right-handed reliever Mitchell Boggs, whom they released last Sunday in a round of cuts. Boggs was among the top setup men in baseball two seasons ago and opened the 2013 campaign as the Cardinals’ closer, but his career has taken a steep dive since he lost…

It’s safe to say the White Sox aren’t that worried about Jose Quintana‘s rough spring training. Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that the left-hander has agreed to a five-year, $26.5 million contract with the White Sox, which includes team options for 2019 and 2020. (Hayes notes that it will only be worth $21.5 million if…

Last week White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana had one of the worst starts you’ll ever see, allowing all nine batters he faced to reach base and score while recording zero outs before being yanked. He also struggled in earlier outings this spring and finished that game with a 30.00 ERA overall, but Quintana insisted afterward…

The White Sox announced — via Facebook and other outlets — that they have released right-hander Mitchell Boggs, who signed a minor league contract with the Pale Hose in early February and had been competing for a bullpen job this spring in camp. Boggs was one of the best setup men in baseball in 2012…

White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu is hitting .308 with an .838 OPS this spring, including a home run yesterday, and the Cuban rookie had an amusing quote when asked by Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com how he’s adjusting to the big leagues: The baseball is not exactly what I thought it would be. I’ve never…

Making official what was expected from the moment they acquired him from the White Sox this offseason, the Diamondbacks announced that Addison Reed will begin the season in the closer role. J.J. Putz also has previous closing experience and David Hernandez certainly has the raw stuff to pitch the ninth inning, but Reed saved 40…

Yesterday afternoon Jose Quintana had one of the worst starts you’ll ever see, allowing all nine batters he faced to reach base and eventually come around to score while recording zero outs. He also struggled in his previous start and his spring training ERA now stands at 30.00 overall, yet the White Sox left-hander insisted…
