    As far as classic baseball pranks go, it’s a simple one: Put a cup on top of someone’s head without them noticing and then watch them go about their usual business in the dugout while trying not to crack up too much.

    The Indians, A’s and Jays are surging. The Yankees, Rays and Braves are reeling. The Padres won a game despite getting only one hit. As Earl Weaver once said: Baseball: we do this every day, lady.

    White Sox manager Robin Ventura confirmed what everyone had already assumed Wednesday, naming ace lefty Chris Sale the club’s Opening Day starter according to Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune. Sale, the obvious choice for Ventura, boasts a spectacular 2.97 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 9.5 K/9 in 500 2/3 career major league innings. He tossed…

    Sep 6, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles first baseman Chris Davis hadn’t homered since August 28, which created a bit of tension as Miguel Cabrera attempts to win another Triple Crown. Cabrera, though, has played once since the 30th, so the four-homer gap between the two remained until tonight, when Davis blasted #48 off of White Sox starter John Danks in…

    Rockies 4, Marlins 3: The Rockies won this game but the Marlins took the 1993 Expansion Cup for this season, closing out the year with a 4-3 record against Colorado. What — you don’t keep track of the 1993 Expansion Cup? There’s a great ceremony at the end of the series each year in which either…

    Mark Parent

    Strange happenings in baseball, indeed.

Video showed Parent saying something to Layne, but it is not…

    Jared Burton

    In the top of the second of the first game of today’s day-night doubleheader against the White Sox, Twins outfielder Chris Colabello homered to right field off of Sox starter John Danks to stake his club to an early 1-0 lead. As the ball landed in the Twins bullpen, it appeared as if reliever Jared…

    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…

  10. 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…

    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,…

    Jun 4, 2013, 6:37 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Dodgers 2, Padres 1: Welcome to the bigs Yasiel Puig. In his first game Puig had two hits and then in the ninth he made a catch at the wall and then a strong throw to first to double off Chris Donorfia to end the game. This guy has the chance to be something special.…

  13. Dioner Navarro has hit three home runs today

    May 29, 2013, 5:17 PM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    OK, so the White Sox-Cubs game isn’t even over yet, but I had to write something about this. Cubs backup catcher Dioner Navarro, who’s making a rare start in place of Welington Castillo, has homered three times in three at-bats. Navarro walked in his other plate appearance and has driven in a total of six…

    Apr 29, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    John Danks AP

    John Danks has progressed enough in his recovery from August shoulder surgery that the White Sox left-hander is scheduled to make his first minor-league rehab start Thursday at Double-A.

    John Danks AP

    White Sox left-hander John Danks was limited to just three starts last season due to a shoulder injury which required surgery.
