This Monday brings about the third series of the season for the White Sox against the Cleveland Indians.  They just so happen to be leading the division, despite the AL Central being betrothed to Detroit at the beginning of the season.

AL Central Rumblings & Bumblings!

Adam Dunn gets regular size Potbelly’s sandwiches now, and Ozzie Guillen is going to remove some people’s nerve endings. There.  That’s the White Sox news for the week. But the White Sox–contrary to appearance–do not operate in a bizarre baseball vacuum by themselves.  They exist in the AL Central, where the amount of money they... Read more »

AL Central comings and goings

AL Central comings and goings
The White Sox aren’t really allowed to have much of an off-season this year.
