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

    Bryce Harper

    In addition to the box scores, I also watched Bill Clinton last night. No matter what your politics, I hope we can agree that Clinton makes everyone want to listen to their “Siamese Dream” cassette and drive around in their Chevy Cavalier, waiting for their pager to blow up.  Anyway: Nationals 9, Cubs 1: Gio…

    Orioles Tolleson, Machado, and Betemit celebrate defeating the Blue Jays during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 0: Zach Britton throwing seven shutout innings + Mark Reynolds driving in four + Yankees losing = First place for the Orioles dudes. Rays 5, Yankees 2: This is that Yankees loss I just mentioned. Freddy Garcia allowed five runs over five. I know this isn’t the case, but as I sit…

  3. Royals prospect Wil Myers named Baseball America minor league player of the year

    Sep 4, 2012, 12:46 PM EST

    Wil Myers

    Baseball America announced its annual minor league player of the year today and the winner is Royals prospect Wil Myers, who hit .314 with 37 homers in 134 games between Double-A and Triple-A at age 21. J.J. Cooper’s lengthy article about Myers includes this interesting tidbit: He joins Paul Konerko, Troy Glaus, Jose Canseco, and…

  4. Injured Gavin Floyd calls bullpen session “a step in the right direction”

    Sep 4, 2012, 11:51 AM EST

    Gavin Floyd Getty

    On the disabled list with elbow problems for the second time this season, Gavin Floyd threw a 20-pitch bullpen session yesterday and called it “a step in the right direction.” Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports that Floyd will throw another bullpen session Thursday, mixing in breaking balls along with fastballs, at which point the White…

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

    Sep 4, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v Toronto Blue Jays

    Orioles 4, Blues Jays 0; Rays 4, Yankees 3:  As mentioned yesterday, this combo brings the Yankees lead over the O’s down to one game in the AL East, with the Rays only two and a half back themselves. I don’t suppose we’re so lucky to have a Yankees collapse come a year after the…

  6. White Sox activate Alejandro De Aza from the disabled list

    Sep 2, 2012, 1:57 PM EST

    de aza getty

    From beat writer Mark D. Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune comes word that White Sox center fielder Alejandro De Aza has been activated off the 15-day disabled list. MLB rosters expanded on September 1, so no corresponding move was necessary. De Aza wound up missing a little more than two weeks with a bruised left…

  7. Lastings Milledge, Wily Mo Pena among league leaders in Japan

    Aug 31, 2012, 4:13 PM EST

    Lastings Milledge Pirates

    Here’s a quick look at how some major leaguers are faring in Japan. Remember, the Japanese leagues started strongly favoring pitchers with the switch to a new baseball last year. In the six-team Pacific League, 13 pitchers currently qualify for the ERA title and the worst of the bunch has a 2.91 ERA. Three of…

  8. Gavin Floyd placed on DL with more elbow problems

    Aug 28, 2012, 3:48 PM EST

    Gavin Floyd Getty

    UPDATE: Floyd has been placed on the disabled list, with Dylan Axelrod moving into the White Sox’s rotation. ========== Gavin Floyd exited Sunday’s start after just two innings with a sore elbow, but an MRI exam revealed no structural damage and the White Sox have diagnosed him with a strain. Robin Ventura told Jeff Seidel…

  9. Photo of the Day: Chris Sale has some pumped up kicks

    Aug 27, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    Camera

    The White Sox decided to lighten the mood for their road trip by pulling a Tampa Bay Rays and dressing up in loud clothes. The results were interesting.  The story, at CSNChicago.com, is interesting. The photo gallery is larf-inducing.  My favorite: Chris Sale‘s shoes: Rockin’.

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

    Cliff Lee

    I looked at the schedule as I sat down to write this and noted that, even including the postponed game, there were only 14 games yesterday. Rays-A’s played Thursday-Saturday, leaving yesterday off to avoid conflicts with the Republican National Convention. Guess you couldn’t expect the RNC to compromise, so … Anyway, it was weird and…

  11. Red Sox could seek out big-name targets this winter

    Aug 25, 2012, 4:22 PM EST

    Josh Hamilton

    The Red Sox have had an average payroll in excess of $170 million the last three years. With Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett departing and David Ortiz, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Cody Ross all set to become free agents, they’re currently looking at something less than half of that for 2013. It figures to give…

  12. Watch the Mariners lose a game on an outfield collision

    Aug 25, 2012, 12:08 AM EST

    Eric Thames, Michael Saunders

    It looked like Mariners right fielder Eric Thames managed to grab Paul Konerko‘s fly to deep right-center with one out in the ninth inning tonight. Alas, that all changed when center fielder Michael Saunders plowed into him, giving the White Sox a 9-8 win. Here’s the video. The game was tied at 8 before Dewayne…

  13. Updated: Where would the Red Sox go minus Gonzalez, Crawford, Beckett?

    Aug 24, 2012, 8:55 PM EST

    Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez

    The deal isn’t yet official, but it looks like Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto are all Los Angeles bound in exchange for four minimum-salaried players and  free-agent-to-be James Loney. That would cut $58.25 million in 2013 salaries from Boston’s payroll and leave the Red Sox committed to only four players for…

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

    Aug 23, 2012, 5:30 AM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 12, Orioles 3: Five years ago last night Texas laid 30 runs on the Orioles. Not so bad last night, but still pretty ugly. Adrian Beltre smacked three dingers and drove in five. Sadly, Tommy Hunter was only allowed to give up a solo homer, two-run homer and a grand slam, falling just short…

  15. Chris Sale fans 13 as White Sox finish sweep of Yankees

    Aug 22, 2012, 10:53 PM EST

    Chris Sale

    Chris Sale held the Yankees to one run in 7 2/3 innings and struck out 13 Wednesday as the White Sox won 2-1 to complete a three-game sweep in Chicago. The Yankees struck out a season-high 15 times in the game, and they were swept even though Derek Jeter homered in all three games of…

  16. 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…

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

    Aug 22, 2012, 5:20 PM EST

    Max Scherzer Getty

    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…

  19. White Sox place Alejandro De Aza on DL with rib injury

    Aug 21, 2012, 2:20 PM EST

    alejandro de aza getty

    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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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.…
