White Sox 10, Twins 8: Jose Abreu drives offense in wild win

Pito perfect on an imperfect night to extend two personal streaks Just think how easy this game would have been if Chris Sale resembled himself, rather than hot garbage for the first three-plus innings. Then again, maybe this game wouldn't have been that much fun. Perhaps Sale pulled some high-level meaning-of-Christmas stuff, but his ugly start set the stage for a rollicking three-hour, 47-minute affair that featured the White Sox scoring in six of eight innings and taking three different leads, capped by a six-single, four-run eighth that gave the Sox a big enough cushion to ward off one...

White Sox Top Twins, 10-8

In a back-and-forth game that saw the Twins solve Chris Sale and Kennys Vargas show promise, the White Sox still emerged triumphant because life is weird and mean. The Minnesota Twins scored five runs on Chris Sale.  The Minnesota Twins lost anyway.  I don't blame the stupid red jerseys, but I don't not blame them, either. In a game that saw four lead changes, the Chicago White Sox had the all-important fourth one, scoring four times in the bottom of the 8th and claiming a 10-8 victory. The South Siders jumped to an early 2-0 lead off Twins starter and obvious giant 12 year old Logan...

AL Central trade deadline wrapup

AL Central trade deadline wrapup

The good, the bad, and the dour. Today was an absolutely amazing trade deadline day.  MLB Network even started their coverage early when the A's and Red Sox pulled of the Lester-Gomes-Cespedes trade.  The next move got the AL Central involved and that's what we're looking at this evening.  Let's take a look AL Central team by team. Chicago White Sox Additions: None Subtractions: None The Sox stood pat today with the trades today.  Obviously, they weren't buying, so no one was interested in what Rick Hahn had to sell. That doesn't mean there weren't any moves.  The White Sox waived AA...

White Sox 7, Tigers 4: Returning home in one piece

White Sox 7, Tigers 4: Returning home in one piece

Sox close out strong road trip on deadline day; Detroit completes blockbuster trade after allowing go-ahead run The Tigers won the headlines, but the White Sox took today's game and the series at Comerica Park. You could also call the road trip a victory, as the 5-2 record represents some of their best play of the season. If they were over .500, the lack of trade deadline activity wouldn't be seen as a disappointment. A bases-loaded plunking of Paul Konerko drove in the decisive run during a seventh inning that was interrupted by the blockbuster acquisition of David Price, and strong work...

White Sox 7, Tigers 4: White Sox pound out 16 hits against Tigers pitching in getaway day loss

White Sox 7, Tigers 4: White Sox pound out 16 hits against Tigers pitching in getaway day loss

Drew Smyly's final appearance as a Tigers resulted in a no-decision, the Tigers offense couldn't get it together, and the bullpen let the White Sox run away with a win. DETROIT — The Detroit Tigers scored four runs in a 7-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox Thursday afternoon and Drew Smyly received a no-decision after being pulled after five innings of 11-hit ball. Thanks to the trade deadline, though, the game seemed to be more of a second thought rather than a series-deciding game, which the Tigers lost. With a crowd of 41,306 in attendance, Smyly came into Thursday's game fresh off a...

Video, audio of Carlos Rodon's first appearance for Winston-Salem

White Sox' first-round draft pick gives up two runs, strikes out three in inning of work Carlos Rodon made a few of professional-ball debuts on Tuesday afternoon: He made his first appearance for the Winston-Salem Dash. He made his first appearance on MiLB.tv. He had to talk to assembled media for the first time. The White Sox' first-round draft pick avoided a formal media introduction in Chicago before getting his feet wet in the obscurity of the Arizona Rookie League, so this was the first time we could see him go about his business, then watch as media types get all up in his...

White Sox trade rumors: John Danks still scheduled to start

Yankees and Marlins are still reportedly interested, but not strongly enough to change rotation Last July, the rumors circulating Jake Peavy approached their crescendo at the same time he was scheduled to make his next start. Instead of risking an injury or spoiling Peavy's immediate availability to an interested club, the Sox called up Andre Rienzo to make a start in Cleveland. Rienzo made his major-league debut with Peavy present, but the Bulldog switched Sox before the end of the day, and Rienzo spent the rest of the season in the major-league rotation. That's how you'd expect a team to...

Tigers 7, White Sox 2: Detroit Mauls Hector Noesi

Nick Castellanos 3-run homer caps a 6 run first inning for Detroit. For those who tuned in to witness the Tigers blitzkrieg in the bottom of the first and proceeded to tune out didn't miss much. As Detroit batted around plating 6 runs on 6 hits, including three straight 1st pitch hits off Hector Noesi by Torii Hunter, J.D. Martinez, and Nick Castellanos 3-run homer to give the Tigers a lead they never looked back from. The silver lining in this game was that the Sox out played the Tigers after the onslaught. Noesi's stat line is not pretty: 6 IP, 10 H, 6 ER, 3 BB, 3 K's. Get rid of the...

Tigers 7, White Sox 2: Six run first inning carries Max Scherzer to 13th win of season, ending Detroit's four game skid

Seven batters into the bottom of the first inning the Tigers were up 6-0 on the White Sox, cruising to a 7-2 victory. Max Scherzer pitched seven innings to earn his AL leading 13th win. Nick Castellanos led the offense with a career high four RBI. The Detroit Tigers snapped a four game losing streak by riding a six run first inning to a 7-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox. The Tigers scored those six runs on White Sox starting pitcher Hector Noesi's first 25 pitches of the game.  Once Noesi retired the first batter he faced, eight straight Tigers reached base on six hits and two walks,...

Nate Jones undergoes Tommy John surgery

Second major procedure this season may cost him all of 2015, too There are a lot of sad characters throughout Ben Folds' catalog, but Fred Jones is the only one with two tales of woe. In "Cigarette," he's dealing with a bipolar wife who might burn down their house, and in "Fred Jones Part 2," he loses his job at the newspaper. Nate Jones has packed two sad stories into one song, and he has the added misfortune of being a real person. He already underwent surgery once this year, getting a microdisectomy in April to relieve an irritated nerve in his back that had affected his pitching since...

After trade deadline, newest White Sox may be old ones

Matt Lindstrom and Avisail Garcia are aching to return as the rumor mill remains quiet While the low hum of a potential John Danks trade drones on and on, no other White Sox seem to be generating any noise in the trade rumor mill. The scout sections aren't much busier, Dan Hayes says: Very few major league scouts are in attendance for Tuesday’s game between the White Sox and Detroit Tigers with one saying, "It feels like I’m the only one here." The Sox may get some help after Aug. 1; it just might take the forms of players who were around on April 1. Matt Lindstrom pitched a simulated...

White Sox 11, Tigers 4: Anibal Sanchez betrayed by defense and bullpen, Joakim Soria rocked in home debut

Joakim Soria's home debut could not have gone worse. The White Sox pummeled the newest Tiger for four runs and six hits in just 1/3 of an inning, including three extra base hits. Down 2-0, Chicago scored 11 unanswered runs to win going away, 11-4. Sloppy defense and a horrific home debut from Joakim Soria cost the Detroit Tigers dearly, the Chicago White Sox breaking open a 2-2 game with seven runs in the seventh inning, cruising to an 11-4 victory. The loss was the fourth straight for the Tigers, who apparently are not familiar with the term "Home sweet home.". The loss drops Detroit to...

White Sox 11, Tigers 4: Slugging Soria during seven-run seventh

There's no "D" in Detroit as extra outs lead to crooked numbers in opener Tonight, the 2014 White Sox were allowed to see what opponents experienced playing the White Sox last year. The Tigers pretty much completed the 2013 White Sox checklist: No. 1: Letting a starter off the hook early Jose Quintana did not have his good location today, and the Tigers let him know, but gently. They collected eight hits and a walk over the first four innings, and yet they could only score two runs, both in the second. They stranded two runners in the first, two in the second, one in the third, and they...

White Sox trade rumors: John Danks-Yankees rumors persist

New York appears to be the only suitor for the remainder of the contract, which means they could wait until a waiver deal in August With the off day and lack of White Sox news, Monday felt very much like Frank Thomas Hall of Fame Observance Day. Today, it's a different story on at least one front, as the White Sox head to Detroit for three games with the Tigers. Whether any rumors follow is a different matter, but with the deadline fast approaching on Thursday, now would be the time. Unfortunately, the scuttlebutt is rather limited. John Danks is the only trade asset giving off any heat,...
