Chicago White Sox

  1. Adam Dunn nearing the single season strikeout record

    Oct 2, 2012, 8:52 AM EST

    Adam Dunn

    Adam Dunn struck out twice in last night’s win over the Indians, bringing his season total to 220. The major league record is 223, set by Mark Reynolds in 2009. Dunn could fall out of bed and strike out three times in two games, so the record is his, right? Well, maybe. Depends on what…

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

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Tigers 6, Royals 3: Before the season began I said something to the effect of “if I had to bet the lives of my children on the outcome of any division, it would be the Tigers winning the AL Central.” I repeated that line on the radio a bunch of times.  I was sweating it…

  3. Jake Peavy might act as his own agent

    Oct 1, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    Jake Peavy

    Because the team option the White Sox hold on Jake Peavy will pay him $22 million, he’s probably going to be a free agent, getting a $4 million buyout instead.  If he becomes a free agent, Toni Ginnetti reports, he may act as his own agent, because his current agent is taking a job with the…

  4. Orlando Hudson not ready to retire, but job prospects for 2013 look bleak

    With his 11th season in the majors winding down White Sox infielder Orlando Hudson made it clear that he’s not ready to retire, but in looking at the 34-year-old’s performance it may not be entirely up to him at this point. Hudson joined the White Sox after being released by the Padres and has hit…

  5. Paul Konerko needs offseason surgery on his hand

    paul konerko getty

    White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko told Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago on Sunday that he will undergo surgery in the offseason to remove a “floating bone fragment” from his left hand. “It is something I need to take care of,” said the veteran. “I don’t feel it has impacted anything I’ve done this year.…

  6. White Sox beat Rays, gain ground on Tigers

    Sep 28, 2012, 11:31 PM EST

    Alex Rios

    The White Sox still aren’t hitting. Fortunately, Gavin Floyd and the bullpen were good enough to overcome that for one night. Floyd allowed one run over five innings and combined with five relievers on a three-hitter Friday in a 3-1 win over the Rays. The White Sox moved to within one within one game of…

  7. Homer Bailey throws a no-hitter against the Pirates

    Sep 28, 2012, 9:36 PM EST

    Homer Bailey AP

    UPDATE: He did it! Homer Bailey has done it. He threw a no-hitter tonight against the Pirates as part of a 1-0 win. Bailey struck out pinch-hitter Brock Holt swinging to begin the ninth before getting pinch-hitter Michael McKenry to pop out to left field for the second out. He then Alex Presley to pop…

  8. Adam Dunn, Dan Uggla poised to make history

    Sep 28, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    Adam Dunn AP

    Regular HBT reader Jason Lukehart notes that Adam Dunn and Dan Uggla are about to make history: each are poised to set the record for the lowest on base percentage for a guy to lead his respective league in walks in major league history. Here’s the chart and the historical perspective. Here’s to you, guys.…

  9. Rays top White Sox for eighth straight victory

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:36 PM EST

    Luke Scott

    A week ago it appeared the Rays may be reduced to the role of spoiler when they faced the White Sox and Orioles in their final seven games of the season. Now, they’re right back in it after winning their eighth straight game on Thursday night against the Pale Hose. Evan Longoria homered in the…

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

    Sep 27, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Baltimore Orioles Machado rounds the bases after hitting a home run against the Toronto Blue Jays during an MLB game in Baltimore

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 2: Bombs away. Chris Davis and Manny Machado each had two homers and the O’s hit seven in all, keeping pace with the Yankees, who maintain their one and a half game lead. Yankees 8, Twins 2: CC Sabathia looks to be back on his game, and that will be huge for the Yankees in…

  11. Alejandro De Aza picked a really bad time for first GIDP

    Sep 25, 2012, 6:02 PM EST

    Alejandro De Aza

    White Sox leadoff man Alejandro De Aza was threatening to go the whole year without grounding into a double play, but his long streak ended in the eighth inning of Tuesday’s loss to the Indians. With Gordon Beckham on first and the White Sox down by two, De Aza hit a grounder to second and…

  12. Chris Sale is getting the anti-Strasburg treatment. And it tells us … nothing.

    Sep 25, 2012, 8:23 AM EST

    Chris Sale

    Jeff Passan talks with Chris Sale and the White Sox. While Stephen Strasburg was shut down at 159 and a third, the White Sox’ young arm is still going at 188.  No, Sale never had Tommy John surgery, but he had also never thrown more than 71 innings before this season. It’s an interesting article, but…

  13. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 25, 2012, 5:30 AM EST

    New York Yankees v Minnesota Twins

    Yankees 6, Twins 3: Six shutout innings for Andy Pettitte. After all these years. After a retirement. After an injury that cost him the bulk of the season. Andy Pettitte is still critical to the Yankees after all of these years. Orioles 4, Blue Jays 1; Blue Jays 9, Orioles 5: The split costs Baltimore…

  14. Adam Dunn busts out of slump at the right time for the White Sox

    Sep 24, 2012, 11:34 PM EST

    Adam Dunn Getty

    Adam Dunn entered tonight’s action batting .115 (2-for-21) with zero homers and an 8/3 K/BB ratio over his last seven games, but he picked a pretty good time to bust out of his recent slump. Dunn helped the White Sox snap a five-game losing streak tonight by homering twice in a 5-4 win over the…

  15. Breaking: Melky will be ineligible for the batting title

    Sep 21, 2012, 2:49 PM EST

    melky getty

    This is both totally unexpected and extremely unusual. And dare I say, ill-advised.  Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports: In an unprecedented agreement between Major League Baseball and union officials, suspended Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera will be ruled ineligible to win the 2012 NL batting title, sources told CSNBayArea.com. Cabrera asked to be removed from consideration…

  16. “Lip Sweaters”

    Sep 21, 2012, 11:33 AM EST

    Dunn_Adam

    I think that’s the real takeaway here. That Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com — or his headline writer if it wasn’t him — used the term “lip sweater” to describe a mustache. And that’s even more gross than “soup strainer.” In any event, Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko had mustaches they were growing as some sort…

  17. The White Sox are going to decline Jake Peavy’s 2013 option

    Sep 20, 2012, 3:00 PM EST

    Jake Peavy

    Jon Heyman reports that the White Sox are not going to exercise Jake Peavy‘s 2013 option. Makes sense give that the option is for $22 million, which is way too much for almost every pitcher out there.  Peavy will get a $4 million buyout on the option. And he’ll make decent money in free agency…

  18. Baseball announces the Roberto Clemente Award nominees

    Sep 18, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Clemente

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” David Ortiz won it last year.  The 2012 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. One complaint first. It’s the same complaint I lodge every…

  19. White Sox clip Tigers to open up three-game lead

    Sep 17, 2012, 6:10 PM EST

    A.J. Pierzynski, Addison Reed

    It wasn’t exactly a classic duel, but the White Sox put themselves another game up in the AL Central by beating the Tigers 5-4 in Monday’s makeup game. The game’s decisive play took place in the fifth, when Dayan Viciedo hit a grounder to short with the bases loaded and one out. Jhonny Peralta decided…

  20. The Tigers in a nutshell

    Sep 17, 2012, 4:51 PM EST

    Infante Fielder Error

    The game is still going on — as I write this the White Sox are leading the Tigers 5-4 in the eighth — but a play that happened in the bottom of the fifth sums up the frustration of the Tigers season. Bases loaded, one out and Dayan Viciedo at the plate. Doug Fister, a…

  21. Ryan Braun hits 200th, 201st career homers versus Mets

    Sep 16, 2012, 3:22 PM EST

    Ryan Braun

    3:40 p.m. EDT update: Braun just added his second solo shot of the game, giving him 201 career homers. /// Ryan Braun became the seventh player in major league history to reach 200 homers within his first six seasons when he took the Mets’ Chris Young deep on Sunday. Here’s the list of players with…

  22. Adam Dunn returns after missing seven games with oblique injury

    Sep 15, 2012, 1:01 PM EST

    Adam Dunn AP

    According to Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com, Adam Dunn is back in the starting lineup this afternoon against the Twins after missing seven straight games with a strained right oblique. He’s playing first base in his return. Dunn originally tweaked his oblique on a check swing on August 29 and hasn’t played since aggravating the injury…

  23. Edwin Encarnacion joins the 40-homer club

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:51 AM EST

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim  v Toronto Blue Jays

    For the third straight season the Blue Jays have a 40-homer hitter, as Edwin Encarnacion went deep last night for the 40th time after Jose Bautista reached that mark in both 2010 and 2011. Encarnacion has always had a ton of offensive upside, especially in terms of power potential, so much so that the Reds…

  24. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 14, 2012, 3:46 AM EST

    St Louis Cardinals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Cardinals 2, Dodgers 1: A must-win for both teams if they wanted to stop the bleeding, but a muster-win for L.A. since they’re behind in the standings. Just didn’t happen, though. Lance Lynn, back in the rotation in a spot start, allowed one run in six innings and struck out seven to give the Cardinals a…

  25. The Red Sox win the championship!

    Sep 13, 2012, 10:30 PM EST

    Pawtucket Red Sox

    OK, it was just the Governors’ Cup, the trophy given to the winner of the Triple-A level International League championship. But it is one thing for the Red Sox to celebrate in a dismal 2012 season. They hadn’t won the title in 28 years. The Pawtucket Red Sox finished a sweep of the best-of-five series…
