Chicago White Sox

  1. C.J. Wilson scratched from All-Star Game, replaced by Jake Peavy

    Jul 8, 2012, 5:38 PM EDT

    C.J. Wilson

    Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson won’t take part in Tuesday’s All-Star Game in Kansas City because of a blister on his middle finger, and the White Sox just announced that Jake Peavy has replaced him on the American League roster. Peavy was the obvious choice to step in for any AL pitcher. The right-hander ranks fifth…

  2. Pedro Ciriaco saves Boston’s bacon in 9-5 win

    Jul 8, 2012, 12:45 AM EDT

    Pedro Ciriaco

    Pedro Ciriaco is so good he even collects hits after the game ends. Making his Red Sox debut Saturday, Ciriaco went 4-for-5 with four RBI in Boston’s 9-5 win over the Yankees in the second game of a doubleheader. His performance caused the Fenway faithful to bring back the “Pedro” chant for the first time…

  3. White Sox add first-round bust Daniel Moskos on waivers

    Jul 6, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Daniel Moskos

    The Pirates made Daniel Moskos the fourth overall pick in the 2007 draft, selecting him ahead of Matt Wieters, Jarrod Parker, Madison Bumgarner and Jason Heyward, among others. Five years and 24 1/3 major league innings later, he’s now a member of the White Sox organization after being claimed off waivers. The selection of Moskos…

  4. 2012 midseason awards: AL MVP

    Jul 6, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Josh Hamilton was far and away the AL’s best player for two months, but he’s definitely come back to the pack after hitting just .223 with four homers in June. He struck out 35 times last month, nearly matching his total of 39 times from April and May combined. That said, he still leads the…

  5. 2012 midseason awards: AL Cy Young

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:53 PM EDT

    Chris Sale

    The AL Cy Young balloting turned into a rout last year, as Justin Verlander lapped the field on his way to taking league MVP honors. At the midway point, this year’s Cy is still very much in doubt. Here’s the league top 10 in ERA: Jered Weaver (LAA): 9-1, 2.13 ERA, 68/21 K/BB in 88…

  6. A.J. Pierzynski speaks about his reputation as a clubhouse cancer and overall jerkface

    Jul 5, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Barrett Pierzynski Getty

    A.J. Pierzynski has a reputation as a clubhouse cancer. That’s not just some broad opinion. One of his teammates on the San Francisco Giants actually called him a cancer back in 2004.  Apart from that, he’s always at the top of “most hated” lists and stuff. But Pierzynski wants to set the record straight: “Basically…

  7. Kevin Youkilis likes his new shade of sox

    Jul 5, 2012, 9:41 AM EDT

    White Sox Youkilis celebrates game-winning single in MLB American League baseball game against Rangers in Chicago

    Kevin Youkilis is doing just fine with the change of scenery. Last night he singled home Alejandro De Aza in the bottom of the 10th to break a 4-4 and give the White Sox a walkoff win. He finished his night 2-for-4 with a walk. So far since the trade he’s 11 for 36 (.306) with…

  8. Yu Darvish, David Freese lead “Final Vote” balloting

    Jul 4, 2012, 1:16 PM EDT

    Yu Darvish

    With one day remaining in the “Final Vote” contest for All-Star spots Rangers starter Yu Darvish leads the AL balloting and Cardinals third baseman David Freese leads the NL balloting. Braves third baseman Chipper Jones had been leading in the NL, but yesterday he was removed from the “Final Vote” ballot after being named the…

  9. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 4, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 10, Cubs 3: Chipper Jones was named to the All-Star team and then went out and put up a 5-for-5, 4 RBI night. Dude even stole a base. Which is nuts considering he was rejected from the leg transplant list as an unsuitable recipient at least five years ago. Of course I talk about…

  10. The White Sox take out their frustrations on the Rangers

    Jul 3, 2012, 11:46 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski

    A.J. Pierzynski made his displeasure about being snubbed from Ron Washington’s AL All-Star team perfectly clear, and his teammates were none too pleased either. Tonight, the White Sox exacted a little revenge, drubbing the Rangers 19-2. It was the Rangers’ most lopsided defeat during Washington’s term at the helm. In fact, they hadn’t lost so…

  11. White Sox release left-handed reliever Will Ohman

    Jul 3, 2012, 6:39 PM EDT

    Will Ohman

    Last week the White Sox designated Will Ohman for assignment just hours after he finished a blowout win and today they released the veteran reliever. Ohman and his $2.5 million salary predictably passed through waivers unclaimed, but now that he’s available for a prorated share of the minimum salary the left-hander should be able to…

  12. Chipper Jones is leading the NL Final Vote thing; Bryce Harper third

    Jul 3, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Chipper Jones AP

    Major League Baseball announced the in-progress Final Vote totals a little while ago and the fans are going with history over the future: Chipper Jones leads the thing with David Freese second and Bryce Harper third. Can’t really blame this on homer ballot box-stuffing given that, as so many of you remind me when I…

  13. Robinson Cano picks his AL Home Run Derby team

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    There was no talking Josh Hamilton into taking part in the Home Run Derby, so Robinson Cano went with some pretty good fallbacks Monday: Jose Bautista, Prince Fielder and Mark Trumbo. Bautista leads the AL with 26 homers at the moment, one more than Hamilton. Cano and Trumbo both have 20 apiece, while Fielder lags…

  14. The Red Sox is outfield about to get very crowded

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:16 PM EDT

    Carl Crawford, Jacoby Ellsbury, Darnell McDonald

    Jacoby Ellsbury homered in his rehab game Monday, Carl Crawford is moving his rehab up to Double-A Portland with an eye towards returning right after the All-Star break and Scott Podsednik is rehabbing at Triple-A just awaiting his activation. Ryan Sweeney (toe) will probably be back before the end of the month, too. In the…

  15. “Final Vote” balloting now open for 2012 All-Star Game

    Jul 1, 2012, 3:35 PM EDT

    final vote

    Major League Baseball revealed its 2012 All-Star rosters Sunday on TBS. But not everything is set for next Tuesday night’s game in Kansas City. Over the next week, online ballots can be cast to send one additional player from each league to participate in this year’s Midsummer Classic. MLB calls it the “Final Vote,” and…

  16. Austin Jackson, Bryce Harper lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 1, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    You knew it was coming. In truth, I think those in charge did a better job of picking this season’s All-Stars than they have in recent years. Still, I have some disagreements, even if none of them are quite as vehement as last season’s. Austin Jackson (OF Tigers) – Jackson’s DL stint probably cost him…

  17. Selection Sunday: Your 2012 All-Star rosters are revealed…

    mlb all-star patch

    Major League Baseball is announcing the All-Star rosters for each league this afternoon during an hour-long special on TBS. We’ll update this post as the names come in: The 2012 MLB All-Star Game is next Tuesday, July 10, at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. AMERICAN LEAGUE Starters C Mike Napoli 1B Prince Fielder 2B…

  18. Hiroki Kuroda strikes out 11 in win over White Sox

    Jun 30, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Hiroki Kuroda Getty

    Who needs CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte, anyway? OK, well the Yankees do if they hope to go anywhere. But Hiroki Kuroda is holding things down quite nicely at the moment. Kuroda was dominant this afternoon, allowing just three hits over seven shutout innings as part of a 4-0 win over the White Sox. He…

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

    Jun 29, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Pirates 5, Phillies 4: All of you who predicted that A.J. Burnett was going to rattle off eight straight wins at some point this year, please cut it out because you’re lying. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go piss off a bunch of Yankees fans by suggesting that Brian Cashman should trade for…

  20. Where did all of the doubles go?

    Jun 28, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Does this look like a doubles swing to you?

    It’s still early enough to turn around, but there are a lot of hitters this year with many more homers than doubles: Jose Bautista – 25 HR, 9 2B Adam Dunn – 24 HR, 10 2B Curtis Granderson – 21 HR, 9 2B Carlos Beltran – 20 HR, 9 2B Dayan Viciedo – 13 HR,…

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

    Jun 28, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Francisco Giants

    Giants 3, Dodgers 0: The season nadir for the Dodgers who got swept by their arch rivals in three straight shutouts and lost their lead in the division. And, to add insult to injury, Andre Ethier got hurt. Wait, that’s adding injury to insult I suppose. Ah, you know what I mean. Oh, and Timmay…

  22. Will Ohman finishes White Sox win, gets let go

    Jun 27, 2012, 5:08 PM EDT

    Will Ohman

    Up 12-2 against the Twins in the eighth inning today, the White Sox went to Will Ohman to finish the game off. Six outs and three runs later, he was sent packing by the club. CSNChicago.com’s Dan Hayes reports that Ohman was designated for assignment immediately after Wednesday’s game. Ohman ended the day with a…

  23. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 27, 2012, 6:15 AM EDT

    arroyo getty

    Reds 4, Brewers 3: Bronson Arroyo had a no-hitter through seven and then ended up with a no-decision. Guess that happens when you ask a starter who usually throws less than seven innings a start to go eight, eh?  Still a nice game until that eighth, and a win for the Redlegs. Giants 2, Dodgers…

  24. Kosuke Fukudome released by White Sox

    Jun 26, 2012, 5:27 PM EDT

    White Sox pinch hitter Fukudome hits into an out in the ninth inning against the Boston Red Sox during their MLB baseball game in Chicago

    No other teams claimed him off waivers and the White Sox couldn’t find a taker via trade, so they released Kosuke Fukudome today after designating him for assignment last week. Fukudome played sparingly and poorly after signing a one-year, $1 million deal as a free agent and was on the disabled list with a back…

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

    Jun 26, 2012, 6:10 AM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    Twins 4, White Sox 1: Kevin Youkilis made his Chisox debut and went one for four in a loss and gave us this odd picture of him in a White Sox uniform. Adam Dunn went 0 for 4 and struck out four times, but the list of things he gives less of a crap about…
