Chicago White Sox

  1. White Sox place Paul Konerko and Jesse Crain on DL

    Jul 3, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Paul Konerko

    Paul Konerko has a sore back and Jesse Crain has a sore shoulder, and the White Sox have placed both players on the disabled list. Konerko has struggled all year, hitting just .249 with a career-worst .682 OPS at age 37, so shutting him down for a while may not be such a bad thing.…

  2. Hating on Homer: the Cincinnati media is less-than-impressed

    Jul 3, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    homer bailey no-no getty

    Not all the Cincinnati media. My primary follows for Reds news are John Fay, Mark Sheldon and C. Trent Rosecrans and those guys are more or less straight shooters. Some others, however, not so much. To wit: Paul Daugherty of the Cincy Enquirer and the crowd at WLW, where Marty Brennaman calls home. Their underwhelemed…

    San Francisco Giants v Cincinnati Reds

    Reds 3, Giants 0: Homer Bailey does it again. You can read about all of the important details of his no-hitter here and here. Less mentioned in the aftermath? (a) Homer dropped an F-bomb in a postgame interview when talking about the walk he gave up to blow the perfect game; and (b) the Giants loss…

  4. Pouliot’s midseason award picks: AL & NL Cy Young

    Jul 2, 2013, 6:09 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    Yesterday, we took a look at what WAR had to say as far as midseason awards winners. Now, I’m making my own choices, starting with the Cy Young Awards. First, let’s get the charts out of the way, here are the top 10 in the AL by ERA and both versions of WAR. ERA 1.…

  5. Jim Thome joins White Sox as special assistant to GM

    Jul 2, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    Jim Thome

    Jim Thome wanted to keep playing at age 42, but no major-league offers came in and now the future Hall of Famer has joined the White Sox’s front office as a special assistant to general manager Rick Hahn. Thome, who played for the White Sox from 2006-2009, will have a role working with both major…

    Carlos Gomez

    Here’s how WAR, both the Baseball-reference and Fangraphs versions, rates the top players as of the midway point of the season. AL MVP (Baseball-Reference) 1. Manny Machado – 4.9 2.

  7. Rangers, Giants, D-Backs among teams interested in Alex Rios

    Jun 30, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Alex Rios

    With the White Sox bringing up the rear in the AL Central, they are expected to make a plethora of players available over the next month leading up to the July 31 deadline. Among them is outfielder Alex Rios, enjoying an adequate season out of the #3 spot in the White Sox lineup as he…

  8. Utility player Skip Schumaker was only Dodgers’ pitcher who didn’t allow a run last night

    Jun 29, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Skip Schumaker Getty

    White Sox outfielder Casper Wells wasn’t the only position player who pitched last night. Dodgers’ utility player Skip Schumaker was called on to pitch the ninth inning in a 16-1 loss to the Phillies. And get this, he was the only Dodgers’ pitcher who didn’t give up a run. Of course he was. Schumaker was…

  9. The Indians and White Sox played the longest doubleheader ever yesterday

    Jun 29, 2013, 9:26 AM EDT

    Addison Reed Asdrubal Cabrera Getty

    46 runs, 59 hits, and 20 pitchers used. Those are just some of the numbers from yesterday’s doubleheader between the Indians and White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. The Indians ended up taking both games. They won a 19-10 slugfest in the opener, which featured outfielder Casper Wells tossing a hitless ninth inning for the…

  10. Position player Casper Wells outpitches White Sox pitching staff in blowout

    Jun 28, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Chicago White Sox

    The Indians and White Sox are slated to play two games tonight, but they may have exhausted all their weapons in game one. The two clubs combined for 29 runs over a nine-inning affair, hanging up crooked numbers in seven different innings as the Indians won 19-10. All but two members of the Indians’ starting…

  11. Trevor Bauer turns in the worst start of the season

    Jun 28, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    Not his worst start. The worst start. Trevor Bauer surrendered five runs and six hits while getting just two outs Friday in the first game of a doubleheader against the White Sox. He was up to 49 pitches in the first when manager Terry Francona finally had to come get him, putting the Indians in…

  12. Paul Konerko won’t play until at least Sunday, could be DL’d

    Jun 28, 2013, 4:41 PM EDT

    paul konerko getty

    Paul Konerko has been out of action since last Sunday. And he’s going to be out a while longer: Konerko said Sunday is earliest he’d likely play. Had six injections in his back today, MRI on Thursday. — Dan Hayes (@DanHayesCSN) June 28, 2013   The Sox have had two days off this week so…

  13. The White Sox will trade anyone but Sale… and Konerko?

    Jun 27, 2013, 6:50 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn, Paul Konerko

    That’s the word from CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman. The White Sox are open to parting with younger regulars like Alex Rios, Alexei Ramirez, Dayan Viciedo and Gordon Beckham and they’d certainly be willing to move Adam Dunn and John Danks. But ace Chris Sale is unavailable, as is 10-and-5 guy Paul Konerko. Heyman doesn’t indicate whether…

  14. Jake Peavy doesn’t want the White Sox to trade him

    Jun 27, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    jake peavy injured getty

    Jake Peavy is just starting to throw again as he comes back from a fractured rib, so it’s a moot point for now, but the White Sox right-hander made it very clear yesterday that he doesn’t want to be traded. Chicago is in last place at 32-43, so the White Sox shopping various veterans would…

  15. Jake Peavy plays catch for first time since rib fracture

    Jun 26, 2013, 6:38 PM EDT

    peavy getty

    White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy took a nice first step Wednesday in his recovery from a fractured rib. According to beat writer Mark D. Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, Peavy was able to throw for about seven minutes from a distance of around 75 feet and reported no physical issues. “It was good,” he told…

  16. Pitchers can throw fastballs because homo erectus evolved for the hunt

    Jun 26, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Flintstone

    I took a lot of physical anthropology in college and several allied primatology courses as well. I actually had more hours in those classes than I did in my major, political science, but because I didn’t take the proper cultural anthropology and archeology courses I couldn’t get the double major. Oh well. Fact remains that the anthro stuff…

    New York Yankees' Suzuki runs and watches the ball after he hit a walk-off home run to beat the Texas Rangers in their MLB American League game in New York

    Yankees 4, Rangers 3: Walkoff homer for Ichiro? Well shut my mouth. Wait, what? Well jeez, Brian, it’s just an expression. You don’t have to agree so emphatically and profanely. Angels 14, Tigers 8: Well that fifth inning got out of a hand in a hurry. Rick Porcello was beaten around for seven runs on…

  18. Padres expected to pursue trades for starting pitching

    Jun 24, 2013, 7:42 PM EDT

    padres logo main

    We heard yesterday that Edinson Volquez is drawing interest from multiple teams, but don’t take that to mean that the Padres are sellers. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the Padres will attempt to upgrade their starting rotation leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. While the club currently sits at 38-38 on…

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets 8, Phillies 0: Matt Harvey blanks the Phillies on two hits for six innings and David Wright went 4 for 5 with two doubles, a triple and a homer. I know the Mets have problems, but man, when it goes right for them it’s really pretty. Something about the purity of an ace and…

  20. Adam Dunn ties Billy Williams with 426th career home run

    Jun 23, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn AP

    Adam Dunn, for the most part, would like to forget the past three years. Since signing a four-year, $56 million contract with the White Sox after the 2010 season, he has posted a paltry .707 OPS over 1,427 plate appearances. His 2011 season, in which he posted a .569 OPS, was one of the worst…

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers - Game Four

    Max Scherzer tossed seven solid innings of baseball as the Tigers routed the Red Sox 10-3. Scherzer held the Sox to two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out six, improving his record to 11-0. Per ESPN Stats & Info, he became the first starter to start 11-0 since Roger Clemens in…

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Mets 4, Braves 3: Good news: two solo homers for David Wright and five scoreless innings from the bullpen. Bad news: The reason the pen was needed for five innings is that Jon Neise had to leave the game with shoulder problems. Braves news: ugh, you guys have looked positively crappy of late. Tigers 4,…

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

    Jun 18, 2013, 6:59 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 2, Mets 1: A three-hour and fifty-two minute rain delay? Really? Despite that, Dillon Gee shut the Braves out through eight and a third and drove in the Mets’ only run. And despite that he gave up a walkoff two-run homer to Freddie Freeman just before 1:30 AM. Now they play a day-night doubleheader. Expect many…

  24. Chris Sale strikes out 14, but loses anyway

    Jun 15, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    Chris Sale Getty

    White Sox starter struck out 14 Astros over eight innings tonight, but ended up a tough-luck loser as his team fell 2-1. Sale allowed the first run without allowing a hit (bookended by Alexei Ramirez errors) and the second on an infield single. The Astros managed just five hits (all singles) and a walk off…

  25. So, someone is going to have to be the AL Rookie of the Year, right?

    Jose Iglesias

    The AL fired off all its rounds with a 2012 rookie class that featured Mike Trout, Yu Darvish, Yoenis Cespedes, Jarrod Parker, Hisashi Iwakuma, Matt Moore, Tommy Milone and many others. This year, the strong rookie class is in the other league, with Shelby Miller, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Julio Teheran leading the way and Yasiel…
