Chicago White Sox

  1. Rays top White Sox for eighth straight victory

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:36 PM EDT

    Luke Scott

    A week ago it appeared the Rays may be reduced to the role of spoiler when they faced the White Sox and Orioles in their final seven games of the season. Now, they’re right back in it after winning their eighth straight game on Thursday night against the Pale Hose. Evan Longoria homered in the…

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

    Sep 27, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles Machado rounds the bases after hitting a home run against the Toronto Blue Jays during an MLB game in Baltimore

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 2: Bombs away. Chris Davis and Manny Machado each had two homers and the O’s hit seven in all, keeping pace with the Yankees, who maintain their one and a half game lead. Yankees 8, Twins 2: CC Sabathia looks to be back on his game, and that will be huge for the Yankees in…

  3. Alejandro De Aza picked a really bad time for first GIDP

    Sep 25, 2012, 6:02 PM EDT

    Alejandro De Aza

    White Sox leadoff man Alejandro De Aza was threatening to go the whole year without grounding into a double play, but his long streak ended in the eighth inning of Tuesday’s loss to the Indians. With Gordon Beckham on first and the White Sox down by two, De Aza hit a grounder to second and…

  4. Chris Sale is getting the anti-Strasburg treatment. And it tells us … nothing.

    Sep 25, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Chris Sale

    Jeff Passan talks with Chris Sale and the White Sox. While Stephen Strasburg was shut down at 159 and a third, the White Sox’ young arm is still going at 188.  No, Sale never had Tommy John surgery, but he had also never thrown more than 71 innings before this season. It’s an interesting article, but…

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

    Sep 25, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Minnesota Twins

    Yankees 6, Twins 3: Six shutout innings for Andy Pettitte. After all these years. After a retirement. After an injury that cost him the bulk of the season. Andy Pettitte is still critical to the Yankees after all of these years. Orioles 4, Blue Jays 1; Blue Jays 9, Orioles 5: The split costs Baltimore…

  6. Adam Dunn busts out of slump at the right time for the White Sox

    Sep 24, 2012, 11:34 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn Getty

    Adam Dunn entered tonight’s action batting .115 (2-for-21) with zero homers and an 8/3 K/BB ratio over his last seven games, but he picked a pretty good time to bust out of his recent slump. Dunn helped the White Sox snap a five-game losing streak tonight by homering twice in a 5-4 win over the…

  7. Breaking: Melky will be ineligible for the batting title

    Sep 21, 2012, 2:49 PM EDT

    melky getty

    This is both totally unexpected and extremely unusual. And dare I say, ill-advised.  Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports: In an unprecedented agreement between Major League Baseball and union officials, suspended Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera will be ruled ineligible to win the 2012 NL batting title, sources told CSNBayArea.com. Cabrera asked to be removed from consideration…

  8. “Lip Sweaters”

    Sep 21, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Dunn_Adam

    I think that’s the real takeaway here. That Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com — or his headline writer if it wasn’t him — used the term “lip sweater” to describe a mustache. And that’s even more gross than “soup strainer.” In any event, Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko had mustaches they were growing as some sort…

  9. The White Sox are going to decline Jake Peavy’s 2013 option

    Sep 20, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Jon Heyman reports that the White Sox are not going to exercise Jake Peavy‘s 2013 option. Makes sense give that the option is for $22 million, which is way too much for almost every pitcher out there.  Peavy will get a $4 million buyout on the option. And he’ll make decent money in free agency…

  10. Baseball announces the Roberto Clemente Award nominees

    Sep 18, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Clemente

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” David Ortiz won it last year.  The 2012 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. One complaint first. It’s the same complaint I lodge every…

  11. White Sox clip Tigers to open up three-game lead

    Sep 17, 2012, 6:10 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski, Addison Reed

    It wasn’t exactly a classic duel, but the White Sox put themselves another game up in the AL Central by beating the Tigers 5-4 in Monday’s makeup game. The game’s decisive play took place in the fifth, when Dayan Viciedo hit a grounder to short with the bases loaded and one out. Jhonny Peralta decided…

  12. The Tigers in a nutshell

    Sep 17, 2012, 4:51 PM EDT

    Infante Fielder Error

    The game is still going on — as I write this the White Sox are leading the Tigers 5-4 in the eighth — but a play that happened in the bottom of the fifth sums up the frustration of the Tigers season. Bases loaded, one out and Dayan Viciedo at the plate. Doug Fister, a…

  13. Ryan Braun hits 200th, 201st career homers versus Mets

    Sep 16, 2012, 3:22 PM EDT

    Ryan Braun

    3:40 p.m. EDT update: Braun just added his second solo shot of the game, giving him 201 career homers. /// Ryan Braun became the seventh player in major league history to reach 200 homers within his first six seasons when he took the Mets’ Chris Young deep on Sunday. Here’s the list of players with…

  14. Adam Dunn returns after missing seven games with oblique injury

    Sep 15, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn AP

    According to Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com, Adam Dunn is back in the starting lineup this afternoon against the Twins after missing seven straight games with a strained right oblique. He’s playing first base in his return. Dunn originally tweaked his oblique on a check swing on August 29 and hasn’t played since aggravating the injury…

  15. Edwin Encarnacion joins the 40-homer club

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim  v Toronto Blue Jays

    For the third straight season the Blue Jays have a 40-homer hitter, as Edwin Encarnacion went deep last night for the 40th time after Jose Bautista reached that mark in both 2010 and 2011. Encarnacion has always had a ton of offensive upside, especially in terms of power potential, so much so that the Reds…

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

    Sep 14, 2012, 3:46 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Cardinals 2, Dodgers 1: A must-win for both teams if they wanted to stop the bleeding, but a muster-win for L.A. since they’re behind in the standings. Just didn’t happen, though. Lance Lynn, back in the rotation in a spot start, allowed one run in six innings and struck out seven to give the Cardinals a…

  17. The Red Sox win the championship!

    Sep 13, 2012, 10:30 PM EDT

    Pawtucket Red Sox

    OK, it was just the Governors’ Cup, the trophy given to the winner of the Triple-A level International League championship. But it is one thing for the Red Sox to celebrate in a dismal 2012 season. They hadn’t won the title in 28 years. The Pawtucket Red Sox finished a sweep of the best-of-five series…

  18. White Sox and Indians reschedule their September 25 game for Yom Kippur

    Sep 13, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    white sox logo

    The Chicago White Sox announced yesterday that their September 25th home game against the Indians has been moved up from 7:10 p.m. to 1:10 for Yom Kippur. Though it wasn’t the team’s original intention to move game time up from 7:10 p.m., the White Sox will gain the services of third baseman Kevin Youkilis, who…

  19. That was fast: Francisco Liriano is back in the White Sox rotation

    Sep 13, 2012, 10:31 AM EDT

    Francisco Liriano

    The White Sox rotation is rather fluid these days. The other day, they decided to go with Hector Santiago — who was once this team’s closer — Jose Quintana and Jake Peavy as their starters this weekend, eschewing Francisco Liriano.  Then, last night, Santiago threw 49 pitches in relief. So now, Dan Hayes reports, Francisco Liriano appears to be back in line…

  20. Adam Dunn’s right oblique is not making much progress

    Sep 12, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    dunn getty

    White Sox manager Robin Ventura suggested to reporters after Tuesday night’s 5-3 loss to the Tigers that designated hitter Adam Dunn might be ready to return to the starting lineup Wednesday evening. But Dunn failed to make it through batting practice on Wednesday afternoon, according to Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com, and has experienced little to…

  21. Francisco Liriano is out of the White Sox rotation for now

    Sep 12, 2012, 4:05 PM EDT

    Francisco Liriano

    When the White Sox bumped Francisco Liriano from his start tonight in favor of Gavin Floyd, it was supposed to be a two-day move, with Liriano possibly pitching out of the pen against the Tigers and then starting Friday against the Twins. That plan is out the window now. The White Sox announced that they’d…

  22. Bobby Valentine brings boxing gloves to radio show, plans to manage Red Sox in 2013 “and beyond”

    Sep 12, 2012, 3:40 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Last week Bobby Valentine made headlines for saying he wanted to punch WEEI radio host Glenn Ordway following what the Red Sox manager thought was an obnoxious question. Valentine was back on WEEI and Ordway’s show this afternoon and jokingly brought boxing gloves to the studio. In addition to proving (or at least attempting to…

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

    Sep 11, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski, Alex Rios

    White Sox 6, Tigers 1: The offense continues to snooze. And the Tigers are getting so little respect that some clever wags out there are calling them the “Kittens.” That’s just sad, dude. Alex Rios and Gordon Beckham did most of the damage for the Sox. Phillies 3, Marlins 1: Fifth straight for Philly, as…

  24. Kittens come up short again in 6-1 loss to White Sox

    Sep 10, 2012, 11:40 PM EDT

    Austin Jackson

    Going 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position isn’t a recipe for success. Since sweeping the White Sox from Aug. 31-Sept. 2, the Tigers have been tamed at the plate: Sept. 3: Lost 2-3 vs. Clev Sept. 4: Lost 2-3 vs. Clev Sept. 5: Won 7-1 vs. Clev Sept. 7: Lost 2-3 at LAA Sept. 8:…

  25. White Sox pick Gavin Floyd over Francisco Liriano versus Tigers

    Sep 10, 2012, 6:42 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd

    The White Sox won’t be easing Gavin Floyd back into the rotation in his return from a sore elbow; he’ll start Wednesday night in the third game of a four-game series against the rival Tigers. The change pushes Francisco Liriano back to Friday, when he’ll face the Twins. By making the move, the White Sox…
