    A.J. Pierzynski, Addison Reed

    For most of A.J. Pierzynski‘s career we’ve heard some version of “opponents hate him, but teammates love him” applied to his ability to ruffle feathers on the field. Last night, after spending eight seasons as the White Sox’s starting catcher, Pierzynski faced the White Sox as a member of the Rangers. He came off the…

    Gavin Floyd

    Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that White Sox right-hander Gavin Floyd “will get multiple opinions on the severity of his injury” after being placed on the disabled list with a strained elbow.

    Pirates 9, Cardinals 0: Two homers for Russell Martin and a strong start from Jeff Locke. The Pirates — the Pittsburgh Pirates — are in first place in the National League Central.

    Rays left-hander Matt Moore experienced some growing pains last summer but still wound up posting a respectable 3.81 ERA over 177 1/3 innings. This season, at age 23, he looks ready to become a legitimate ace. Moore allowed only one run and struck out nine over six innings Saturday in the Rays’ 10-4 win over the White…

    Apr 26, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox

    MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince reported on the Blue Jays’ use of a “performance coach” who professes that “batting average is Satan”. Somehow, that isn’t the most interesting quote in the article. In talking about how fans and players have moved further and further away from their reliance on batting average, Adam Dunn‘s name inevitably came up.…

    Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

    Royals 8, Tigers 3: You can try to make Phil Coke a multi-inning reliever all you want, but he’s still going to be a lefty specialist. And when he comes in and has trouble even getting the lefties out, you can’t stick with him. He’s not the one who gave up the grand slam to…

    Barry Zito Getty

    Barry Zito got tagged with some sort of hippie/playboy/zen master stereotype when he came up with the A’s. Since then most of that has been obscured by talk of his contract, his pitching struggles and then his nice little comeback the past season or so. But his interview in the May “GQ” reveals a much different Barry…
