Morning notes - Happy Chris Sale Day

Morning notes - Happy Chris Sale Day
For the second-straight Friday, Chris Sale will square off against one the best pitchers in the National League, this time it being Zack Greinke of the Milwaukee Brewers.

September calling to the minor leagues

September calling to the minor leagues
Between Ramon Castro trying to catch a pitch barehanded, A.J. Pierzynski racing in front of Bruce Chen fastball, Carlos Quentin diving into the ground shoulder-first, and Tony Pena tearing ligaments out of his own elbow, the Chicago White Sox veterans conspired to take the excitement out of September call-ups.
