Chicago White Sox

  1. Jeff Francoeur drew three walks last night

    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.…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. Man dies at Rogers Centre during Blue Jays game

    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.

    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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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,…

  8. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

    Paul Konerko AP

    The White Sox will have to get by without one of their best hitters for a little while, as Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that the White Sox have placed Paul Konerko on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion. Konerko suffered the concussion Tuesday night when he was elbowed in the head by Royals…

  16. 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…

  17. Matt Cain hasn’t been himself since throwing perfect game

    Aug 7, 2012, 12:48 PM EST

    Matt Cain, Buster Posey

    He hasn’t reached Philip Humber territory in terms of struggling after throwing a perfect game, but Matt Cain has a 4.40 ERA since making history on June 14 and the Giants have lost six of his nine starts during that time. Cain has a strong 46/16 K/BB ratio in 57 innings over that nine-start stretch,…

  18. White Sox demote Philip Humber to bullpen three months after perfect game

    Aug 7, 2012, 11:19 AM EST

    AP Phil Humber

    Philip Humber has struggled mightily since throwing a perfect game on April 21, posting a 7.21 ERA in 14 starts while spending some time on the disabled list, and the White Sox have decided to demote him to the bullpen while ditching their brief six-man rotation. Humber took the demotion in stride, mostly because he…

  19. Chris Sale benefits from the extra rest

    Aug 7, 2012, 10:00 AM EST

    Chris Sale

    Chris Sale‘s velocity was down, he had a couple of bad starts and there was talk of the dreaded “dead arm.” But after some extra time off, Sale came roaring back last night. From CSNChicago.com: After hovering around 90 mph July 27 in Texas, concerns about Sale’s drop in velocity evaporated as the 23-year-old was…

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

    Aug 7, 2012, 6:10 AM EST

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers

    Tigers 7, Yankees 2: Justin Verlander was amazing, striking out 14. I’m not sure why Jim Leyland kept him in there for 132 pitches given that the Tigers had a five run lead by the sixth inning, but I guess the fans liked it. And heck, he was still throwing 100 miles per hour, so…

  21. Should Bobby Valentine be fired? Red Sox owner responds

    Aug 6, 2012, 6:44 PM EST

    Bobby Valentine

    Red Sox owner John Henry answered the calls for Bobby Valentine’s dismissal with an email sent to WEEI’s Rob Bradford and others Monday: I’ve gotten questions about Bobby and about ownership from you so I’ll say the following on the record. To blame Bobby Valentine for the Red Sox being .500 at this point in…

  22. John Danks had his shoulder surgery

    Aug 6, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    John Danks

    The White Sox announced that John Danks had his surgery today. And you’re not gonna believe this, but it was a success. In White Sox speak, Danks underwent sugery to “arthroscopically repair a capsular tear & minor debridements of the rotator cuff and biceps in his left shoulder.” Which sounds kinda icky, but the good…

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Chicago White Sox

    The Angels lodged a formal protest of Friday night’s game against the White Sox. The basis for the protest: In the first inning of the game, Paul Konerko hit a grounder to third with the bases loaded and no outs. Alberto Callaspo started what was to be a 5-2-3 double play. He went home with…

    A.J. Pierzynski

Pinch-hitting for Tyler Flowers, Pierzynski hit a tie-breaking two-run homer off Jason Isringhausen in the bottom of the seventh. It was his fifth straight game with a homer, matching a White Sox…

  25. White Sox don’t plan on exercising Youk’s $13 million option

    Kevin Youkilis

    Kevin Youkilis has posted an .864 OPS with eight home runs and 25 RBI in 33 games since joining the White Sox. They love him, but that love has limits. A White Sox official told Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe this weekend that the club is unlikely to exercise Youk’s $13 million club option for the…
