  1. MLB overrules the hit that broke up Jeremy Guthrie’s no-hitter

    Aug 22, 2012, 5:54 PM EST

    Eric Hosmer, Paul Konerko

    It doesn’t matter much now, but the controversial Paul Konerko infield single that broke up Jeremy Guthrie‘s no-hitter with two outs in the seventh inning Sunday is no more. MLB has ruled the play an error on Alcides Escobar. As you may remember: The slow-footed Konerko hit a grounder into the hole at short. Escobar grabbed…

  2. Max Scherzer is trying to crash the aces-only party for MLB strikeout leaders

    Aug 22, 2012, 5:20 PM EST

    Usually the MLB strikeout leader is a big-name, Cy Young-caliber pitcher. In fact, every single MLB strikeout leader during the past 20 years fits that description: Randy Johnson (nine times) Johan Santana (two times) Justin Verlander (two times) Curt Schilling (two times) Jered Weaver Tim Lincecum Jake Peavy Kerry Wood John Smoltz You get the…

    Nationals' Strasburg pitches in the rain during the second inning of their MLB game against Braves in Washington

    Nationals 4, Braves 1: I have been arguing against a Stephen Strasburg shutdown for a while now, but allow me to say that if those dudes are really gonna do that, I wish they would have done it before last night. Strasburg struck out ten in six innings, allowing a single run and winning his…

    Alejandro De Aza bruised his ribs sliding into second base Friday night and today the White Sox placed him on the disabled list while recalling Jordan Danks from Triple-A to take his roster spot. De Aza predictably came back down to earth after hitting .329 in 54 games for the White Sox last year, but…

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

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:07 AM EST

    Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa, Kurt Suzuki,

    Nationals 5, Braves 4: I suppose you can yell at Dan Uggla for messing up the play with the infield in and a runner on third in the 13th inning which allowed the winning run to score. But perhaps it’s also worth noting that the Braves played perhaps their most important game to date, in…

  6. Mark Teixeira returns from sore wrist Monday against White Sox

    Aug 20, 2012, 8:01 PM EST

    Mark Teixeira Getty

    Mark Teixeira sat out the entire weekend series against the Red Sox due to left wrist soreness, but Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports that he’s playing first base and batting cleanup tonight against Gavin Floyd and the White Sox. Teixeira originally injured the wrist on a swing against the Red Sox on July 29 and…

  7. Jeremy Guthrie loses no-no on controversial infield hit

    Aug 19, 2012, 4:12 PM EST

    Eric Hosmer, Paul Konerko

    White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko was credited with an infield hit with two outs in the seventh inning Sunday, costing Kansas City’s Jeremy Guthrie his chance for a no-hitter. The slow-footed Konerko hit a grounder into the hole at short. Alcides Escobar grabbed it, but made a poor throw that bounced high off the…

  8. Adam Dunn launches 400th career home run

    Aug 18, 2012, 11:40 PM EST

    Adam Dunn

    Adam Dunn took Royals reliever Tim Collins deep in the eighth inning Saturday for his 400th career home run. He also reclaimed the major league lead with his 35th homer of the year after Josh Hamilton caught him at 34 Wednesday. Dunn became just the eighth player to hit 400 homers in his first 12…

  9. Alejandro De Aza out this weekend with back injury

    Aug 18, 2012, 10:22 PM EST

    alejandro de aza getty

    White Sox center fielder Alejandro De Aza made a premature exit Friday night after injuring his back on a slide into second base and is not action Saturday. Sunday isn’t looking very promising either. According to beat writer Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times, De Aza was walking “gingerly” before Saturday’s game against the…

  10. Jeff Francoeur drew three walks last night

    Aug 18, 2012, 12:23 PM EST

    Jeff Francoeur AP

    I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw the box score this morning, but there it was. Jeff Francoeur drew three walks in last night’s 4-2 win over the White Sox. The three walks were actually a career-high for Francoeur. The free-swinging outfielder came into last night’s action with just 20 walks all season.…

  11. Royals’ Chris Getz suffers broken thumb, out for season

    Aug 17, 2012, 11:05 PM EST

    Chris Getz

    The Royals had Chris Getz replace Alex Gordon in the leadoff spot Friday against the White Sox, but it proved to be a one-day experiment. Getz suffered a broken left thumb bunting in the fifth inning and is expected to miss the rest of the season. Getz was 0-for-3 in the game, leaving him at…

  12. Paul Konerko back in White Sox lineup after concussion

    Aug 17, 2012, 3:05 PM EST

    Paul Konerko AP

    As expected Paul Konerko is back in the White Sox’s lineup for tonight’s game, returning after missing 10 days with a concussion. He’ll likely take things slow at first, serving as Chicago’s designated hitter instead of playing his usual first base, but Konerko reported no problems after taking batting practice earlier this week. Konerko has…

  13. Man dies at Rogers Centre during Blue Jays game

    Aug 16, 2012, 11:29 PM EST

    Chicago White Sox v Toronto Blue Jays

    Thursday’s game between the White Sox and Blue Jays was delayed after a fan went into cardiac arrest down the left-field line at Rogers Centre. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital. According to “the man in white,” who was tweeting from the game, a fan performed CPR on the ailing man first and then…

  14. Paul Konerko expected to return from concussion Friday

    Paul Konerko Getty

    Paul Konerko is on the seven-day concussion disabled list after taking a Jarrod Dyson elbow to the head on August 7, but the White Sox slugger is expected to be back in the lineup tomorrow night. Konerko reported no problems while taking batting practice and playing catch Wednesday, and manager Robin Ventura indicated that he’ll…

  15. Jason Varitek for Red Sox manager

    Aug 14, 2012, 5:55 PM EST

    Jason Varitek

    I tried this nine months ago with little support. Let’s see if it flies better now. Terry Francona lost the Red Sox clubhouse. Bobby Valentine never had it in the first place. What the Red Sox seem to want is one of their own running the team, and who is more one of their own…

  16. Forget Wheaties: Jake Peavy is looking for Lucky Charms

    Aug 14, 2012, 1:02 PM EST

    Jake Peavy

    White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy has taken three complete-game losses on his way to going 9-8 with a 3.04 ERA this year. The only other pitcher in either league with more than one is Justin Verlander, and he has two. CSNChicago’s Chuck Garfien has the full rundown on Peavy’s string of bad luck this year,…

  17. Adam Dunn murdered a baseball

    Aug 14, 2012, 9:12 AM EST

    Adam Dunn

    Adam Dunn hit two home runs last night, but one of them was absolutely murderized.  Apologies for the Hawk Harrelson commentary: Dunn’s homers came in a losing effort, but each came at key times, tying the game up in the fourth inning and again in the ninth to force extras. Though Dunn has been slumping…

    New York Yankees' Derek Lowe pitches to Texas Rangers during their MLB American League baseball game in New York

    Yankees 8, Rangers 2: I suppose the critical mass of people mocking the Yankees’ pickup of Derek Lowe was just too delicious for God or Loki or Fate or whatever controls our world to pass up, because He/it/whatever decided to play it funny with us and allow Mr. Lowe to toss four scoreless innings in…

  19. Paul Konerko making progress from concussion

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

    Aug 13, 2012, 5:30 AM EST

    Rajai Davis

    Blue Jays 10, Yankees 7: Holy frijole, did you see Rajai Davis’ catch, robbing Casey McGehee of a home run in the seventh? The guy is like 5”9″ and the wall is like ten feet and he went Spud Webb on that bad boy. Or Spiderman. Or something. Just wow. Otherwise, the Jays beat the tar out…

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

    Aug 12, 2012, 5:11 PM EST

    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…

    White Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis has been dealing with soreness in his right knee for close to a week and was plunked in the left forearm by A’s reliever Grant Balfour on Saturday night. So, according to MLB.com’s Scott Merkin, the veteran Youkilis is getting the day off Sunday. Ray Olmedo will start at…

    Will Middlebrooks Getty

    Clay Buchholz tossed a two-hitter tonight as part of a 3-2 win over the Indians, but the Red Sox were dealt another tough blow on the injury front in the process. Will Middlebrooks left the game in the top of the ninth inning after being hit in the right wrist by a pitch. The Red…

    Aug 10, 2012, 7:29 PM EST

    Paul Konerko AP

Konerko suffered the concussion Tuesday night when he was elbowed in the head by Royals…

  25. Paul Konerko has a mild concussion

    Aug 9, 2012, 8:23 AM EST

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox

    Paul Konerko missed yesterday’s game. Originally Robin Ventura said it was due to general soreness. After the game, though, the story was different: Afterward, Ventura said Konerko had a mild concussion and needs further evaluation on Friday. Ventura didn’t dismiss the possibility for Konerko to go on the seven-day DL. Konerko is hitting .316/.388/.504 with 18…
