Chicago White Sox 12, Detroit Tigers 3: Game 11 Player of the Game

Who was today's Tigers player of the game in their 12-3 loss to the White Sox? For the first time this season, the Tigers were the ones on the wrong end of a decisive score line. After taking a 1-0 lead over Chris Sale and the Chicago White Sox in the first inning, the Tigers quickly unraveled, and went on to lose 12-3. Miguel Cabrera was one of the lone bright spots for the Tigers offensively, collecting an RBI single after a lengthy at-bat with Sale in the first inning. The hit, which came after a nine-pitch battle, put the Tigers up 1-0. Cabrera was walked in the third inning, and did...

White Sox 12, Tigers 3: Offense unloads in support of Chris Sale

Melky Cabrera, Jose Abreu and Adam LaRoche at center of season's biggest explosion The White Sox offense isn't so bad that it was going to continue averaging 2.8 runs per game. The Tigers pitching staff isn't so good that it was going to continue limiting opponents to one earned run every 36 innings at home. Today went a long way to correct those two outliers. The Sox scored a season-high 12 runs, which was 12 times as many runs as the Tigers had allowed over their first four dates at Comerica Park combined. The White Sox posted their biggest inning of the season with a four-run third,...

White Sox 12, Tigers 3: Anibal Sanchez roughed up in blowout loss to Chicago

Anibal Sanchez allowed a career-high in runs against the White Sox and the Tigers suffered just their second loss of the 2015 season. DETROIT -- After the Detroit Tigers took an early 1-0 lead thanks to an RBI single by Miguel Cabrera, Anibal Sanchez blew away the lead by allowing a career-high nine runs and he failed to make it out of the fourth inning. The Tigers lost to the Chicago White Sox 12-3, taking their second loss of 2015, handing Detroit a 9-2 record to start the year. J.D. Martinez hit a solo home run in the fourth, but it did nothing to eat away at Chicago's sizable lead. From...

Detroit Tigers benefit from blown calls by umpires and White Sox

Nick Castellanos was called safe on a critical, controversial ninth inning play that led to the winning run being scored. Why didn't the White Sox appeal? At a critical moment in yesterday's 2-1 Detroit Tigers victory, Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura slowly came up the dugout steps and began to walk onto the field. The game was tied at one in the bottom of the ninth inning, and umpires had just called Nick Castellanos safe on a close play at second base. Castellanos had lined a pitch from reliever Zach Duke into right field, and after a brief misplay, rightfielder Avisail Garcia's...

Robin Ventura's explanation of inaction doesn't hold up after challenge

White Sox manager didn't attempt to overturn blown call in ninth inning, even though he had nothing to lose by trying Having suffered an 0-for-41 slump during his rookie season, Robin Ventura is something of an expert on rough stretches. He doesn't like to say much, but one thing he's said more than once is that baseball is a game "that can bring you to your knees." Sure enough, baseball's been picking on him lately. On Wednesday afternoon in Cleveland, he put the White Sox in a bind by calling for a two-strike bunt with nobody out and the tying runs on base in the ninth inning. That led to...

Detroit Tigers 2, Chicago White Sox 1: Game 10 Player of the Game

Who was the Tigers' player of the game in today's 2-1 win over the White Sox? The Detroit Tigers have been locked in a few pitching duels lately, but they continue to come out on top. Today, David price and Jeff Samardzija went toe-to-toe at Comerica Park, and the Tigers were able to walk off winners against Zach Duke and the Chicago White Sox in the ninth inning. Jose Iglesias got the glory today, slapping a single into right-center field to score Andrew Romine in the bottom of the ninth inning, delivering the Tigers a 2-1 win. Iglesias also doubled off White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija...

Tigers 2, White Sox 1: Duel gone awry

Jose Iglesias single in the bottom of the ninth delivers the walk-off win for Detroit. Just like the game on Wednesday at Cleveland, this felt like a game in which the White Sox didn't deserve to win. Large thanks to the outstanding pitching performance from Jeff Samardzija and the defense of Gordon Beckham, the Sox were in it to the very end. Jeff Samardzija fended off the Tigers high octane offense from the very beginning. With a runner on first, Miguel Cabrera crushed a 95 mph fastball to left field. If the game was played in Chicago, it would have been a two-run home run. Instead, in...

It's not too late for White Sox to reconsider second base

Slow start for Micah Johnson harder to absorb with rest of team struggling When the White Sox decided to bring Micah Johnson to Chicago with them to start at second base, they hoped that he might be able to act as a leadoff man for the leadoff man. The ninth spot in the order would intrinsically reduce expectations for Johnson, but if he proved to be a quick study, he'd give Adam Eaton and Melky Cabrera an extra guy to move around the basepaths. That vision hasn't exactly come to life over the first eight...

Behind Enemy Lines: Breaking down the White Sox with South Side Sox

Jim Margalus of South Side Sox answered a few questions for us about the White Sox prior to this weekend's three-game series. Baseball will have its eyes turned to Chicago this weekend, as the Chicago Cubs have reportedly called up uber-prospect Kris Bryant to the major leagues. However, the Cubs, for all their hype, may not even be the best baseball team in their own town this season. The Chicago White Sox retooled their roster this offseason and are one of the four teams that many people think have a legitimate chance to win a wide-open division. In order to learn more about the White Sox...

Time is running out: A Detroit Tigers preview

A look ahead at the defending AL Central champions These are desperate times for the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers have been the clear-cut alpha dog in the AL Central for awhile now, as they've worn the division crown each of the last four seasons while winning at least 88 games in each. Owner Mike Ilitch and general manager Dave Dombrowski have pushed repeatedly to acquire big-name stars to keep the team a cut above its division rivals, and they've gotten results they've wanted, at least prior to the playoffs. In 2012, they reached the World Series, but their postseason results have declined...

Terrerobytes: "Things Could Be Worse" edition

The White Sox are off to as sluggish start, but they're not the only team dealing with ominous occurrences The Kansas City Royals finally lost a game -- a 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Minnesota Twins -- and it comes on the heels of losing one of their key offseason additions for an extended period. Alex Rios suffered a broken pinky finger when J.R. Graham plunked him on Monday, and he went on the disabled list before Wednesday's game. The Royals have been increasingly irked by their league-leading total of HBPs, and not just with Jeff Samardzija purpose pitches, but Rios and GM Dayton...

Indians 4, White Sox 2: Sloppy to the end

Defensive miscues create hole, and strange strategy undermines the comeback The White Sox brought the go-ahead run to the plate with nobody out in the ninth inning of a game they didn't deserve to win. Suboptimal decision-making by Robin Ventura -- and equally poor execution by Adam Eaton -- helped push the Indians across the finish line. Cleveland led 4-2 entering the ninth, but Cody Allen jeopardized the lead by walking Emilio Bonifacio and hitting Micah Johnson. Up came Eaton, ready to give himself up to move the runners 90 feet. Here's the problem: He fouled off one bunt, and popped...

David Robertson brings strikeouts back to the White Sox bullpen

Here's another way to describe the ineptitude of last year's relief corps David Robertson recorded his second save for the White Sox on Tuesday night, and it looked an awful lot like his first save -- three up, three down, three strikeouts. We're having @DRob30 déjà vu. #OneTwoThreeTheyGone pic.twitter.com/HH1bwmcUvP— Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) April 15, 2015 It's a very considerate first impression by Robertson. The White Sox may have responded to one incomplete idea (building a bullpen that struggled to miss bats) with another (giving a reliever a four-year, $46 million...

White Sox 4, Indians 1: Quintana deals quality in his first win of 2015

The White Sox bullpen stole the show, though the stage was early set. The White Sox jumped ahead quickly tonight and controlled all facets of their first meeting with the Cleveland Indians, bringing their week-old season record to 3-4 with their third consecutive win. Adam Eaton began the Sox surge with a single, then Melky Cabrera hit the ball back up the middle to keep the line moving.  The box score will mention that Indians' pitcher Carlos Carrasco deflected the ball off of Melky's bat.  To be more specific though, Carrasco deflected the ball with his face.  The replays were...

Functional Band-Aids: A Cleveland Indians preview

A look ahead at the team many predicted to win the AL Central The Cleveland Indians and Kansas City Royals had similarly quiet offseasons, but while the latter's plan represented a failure to make a push to cash in on a window of opportunity, the former's strategy is much easier to understand. The Indians have had the payroll of a small market team for years, and 2014 was certainly no execption.  Their $82.5 million player budget for 2014 ranked 26th in baseball, and it got just a slight bump this season to $88 million. With that constraint in place, wiggle room on player moves can be hard...

Chicago White Sox Assistant General Manager, Buddy Bell, joins the show to share his excitement for the White Sox farm system. Here is this week's podcast rundown: Jim breaks down what went wrong in the first 38 innings in 2015...and what has gone right the past 16 innings.
