Chicago White Sox John Danks continues roller coaster season

To get a feel of how Chicago White Sox pitcher, John Danks, is doing this season, look no further than his last two outings. Danks came out flat against the Minnesota Twins on June 22, giving up nine runs (five earned) on nine hits (three home runs) in just 5 1/3 innings. Danks’ earned run average jumped to 5.38 after the game. The lefty responded on Friday night against the Baltimore...

Putting Chris Sale’s strikeout streak in historical perspective

By striking out 12 St. Louis Cardinals hitters on Tuesday night, Chris Sale of the Chicago White Sox tied Pedro Martinez’s record for striking out at least ten hitters in eight games in a row.

Chicago White Sox should consider hiring rainmaker after drizzly win

Chicago White Sox GM Rick Hahn might have been on the phone after midnight last night, waking up the elders of the Sioux Nation in an attempt to hire a rainmaker to add to the Sox’ coaching staff. Indeed, perhaps the Sox don’t need to think about acquiring the traditional mid-season miracle-working veteran (see 2012 candidate Kevin Youkilis). Instead, perhaps the missing piece...

1 Special Game and 1 Beating the Rain

The Sox have been in one place I have always wanted to go. St.Louis to Bush Stadium, for a 2 game series with the Cardinals.

Chicago White Sox activate pitcher Dan Jennings from disabled list

The White Sox hope to bolster their bullpen with the return of reliever Dan Jennings, who was activated off the disabled list Wednesday. The lefty specialist had been sidelined since June 5 with neck inflammation. Before his injury, Jennings had a solid start to the season, posting a 2.31 ERA on May 3 through 10 appearances. But he struggled through May and part of June, carrying...

Chicago White Sox somehow manage to get King K-er Chris Sale enough hits

The Chicago White Sox haven’t had too much to cheer about this year — other than every time left-handed stud Chris Sale takes the mound. On Tuesday night, Sale took on the NL Central-leading St. Louis Cardinals in an interleague contest, going eight innings and striking out twelve Redbirds in the process. Twelve Ks in any MLB performance would be highlight reel-worthy, but it...

Should the White Sox fire Robin Ventura and hire Ozzie Guillen?

Should the White Sox fire Robin Ventura and hire Ozzie Guillen? The notion that once seemed crazy is now gaining traction among fans, reporters and maybe even within the White Sox organization. Chris De Luca of the Chicago Sun-Times makes a very strong case for the flashy, firey, former White Sox manager to make a triumphant return: "Say what you will about Guillen, but he would...

Should the White Sox and Indians become sellers?

There is no question that the American League Central is one of the toughest divisions in baseball (it is home to 7 of 9 potential All-Star starters) and that has lead to a difficult climb for those teams at the bottom. While the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox appeared to be ready to contend for a World Series title at the start of the season, the still strong Royals,...

Maybe it's time to blow up the White Sox

For the last few years, Rick Hahn and Kenny Williams have been steadily rebuilding the White Sox base of talent, and along the way, they’ve acquired a few cornerstone players that are the envy of every other franchise in baseball.

Red Sox to retire Pedro Martinez's No. 45 jersey

Gordon Beckham Now Has Hit Walk-Offs On Mother’s, Father’s Day (Video)

Gordon Beckham’s parents must be proud. The Chicago White Sox third baseman commemorated Father’s Day on Sunday by smacking a walk-off home run in a 3-2 win over the Texas Rangers. If that moment felt familiar for White Sox fans, it’s because last month, wearing a pink Mother’s Day armband rather than one of the baby blue ones worn on Father’s Day, Beckham also provided...
