Even with Paul Konerko, A.J. Pierzynski, Alejandro De Aza and Alexei Ramirez getting the day off, the White Sox were right there this afternoon and on the verge of winning the series against the Dodgers after the clubs split one-run victories on Friday and Saturday.

White Sox Limp into L.A. to Face the Best Team in Baseball
White Sox fans are running out of patience with Gavin Floyd. With the Sox having a chance to win the series against the Cardinals and increase their A.L. Central lead to 2 1/2 games over the Indians, Floyd failed again last night. In just 4 2/3 innings, he gave up five runs, eight hits and... Read more »

Maybe the White Sox Should Play All Their Games on the Road

Maybe the White Sox Should Play All Their Games on the Road

Cy Sale, The Big Donkey, De Awesome, Brother Jordan and Altogether a Happy Day on the South Side
Random notes from today’s fun 10-1, 17-hit victory over the Astros on a hot afternoon at The Cell: * Chris “Cy” Sale was magnificent.

Magical Sixth Inning and Humber Outing Move Sox into First Place

Magical Sixth Inning and Humber Outing Move Sox into First Place
Frankly, it came out of nowhere. With James “Big Game” Shields on the mound for the Rays last night with a 2-1 lead entering the top of the sixth, it looked like a nail-biter with the Sox’s six-game winning streak in jeopardy.  But the White Sox hitters had another idea and when it was all...
