Kevin Youkilis really likes his new digs
It’s been easy to spot Kevin Youkilis exchanging polite celebratory handshakes with Adam Dunn at home plate.  The man who has only eclipsed 20 home runs twice in a season already has 11 in 203 White Sox plate appearances. See if you can spot the big factor in his success with his new team… Youk’s... Read more »

The White Sox have lowered ticket prices!...kinda...not really
There is one solace for the fan of the disappointingly mediocre baseball team; and it’s not the high draft pick, nor the Dylan Axelrod spot start.  No, it’s the reluctant and marginal rollback of ticket prices. For once, the White Sox did not disappoint.  The reductions were marginal, and maaaaan, were they reluctant: Prices for... Read more »
