Sox-Rays Saturday matinee: They would have stopped it in Little League

Sox-Rays Saturday matinee: They would have stopped it in Little League
If the major leagues had a mercy rule it would have sadly applied this afternoon as Tampa Bay held a 10-0 lead over the White Sox after 7 1/2 innings.

Should the White Sox be looking for more quality off of the bench?

Should the White Sox be looking for more quality off of the bench?
It became strikingly apparent last night that if the White Sox are going to hang in and win the A.L. Central, they’ll need to avoid major injuries. I’m not breaking any news here, others have made the same observation. But it really hit home during the 5-2 loss to the Royals as the Sox had... Read more »

Kenny Williams Doesn't Disappoint in White Sox's Quest for Division Title: Youkilis, Myers and Now Liriano
It’s nothing new. Jerry Reinsdorf and Kenny Williams want to win and it’s reflected in the moves they make.

Peavy is Brilliant, but Sox Drop Another Close One and Lose Division Lead

Peavy is Brilliant, but Sox Drop Another Close One and Lose Division Lead
Jake Peavy did all he could to get the White Sox a victory, pitching a gutsy complete game while giving up just one earned run on five hits and walking only one. And he was never better than he was  in the top of the ninth when he shut down the North Siders after a... Read more »

Sox Bullpen to the Rescue in 5-4 Triumph over Dodgers

Sox Bullpen to the Rescue in 5-4 Triumph over Dodgers
Through their first 65 games, The White Sox have demonstrated a resiliency to come from behind and stay in almost every game.

A Classic Pitchers' Duel, but the Wrong Team Won

A Classic Pitchers' Duel, but the Wrong Team Won
A pitching duel between two aces doesn’t often live up to expectations. Many times the 1-0, 2-1, 3-2 game that is predicted turns into a slugfest.
