I often have wild premonitions about what's in store for me when I go on a road trip to see the Mets. For example, when I went to Tampa last season, I had a strange thought that I had to go down there ... needed to go even ... because if I didn't, then R.A. Dickey would throw a no-hitter and I will have missed it. (He threw a one-hitter, but you know how I feel about that.)
The "vision" I had for this trip, a quick two game set between the fourth place Mets and the fifth place White Sox, was that Lucas Duda was going to drop a fly ball to lose the game for the Mets. I wasn't sure if it was going to be an easy one, a screaming liner, or something in between, but it was going to happen. And then Lucas went to first base. And then he went on the disabled list. So much for a vision. But usually premonitions aren't quite exact to your specifications. And far too often, people use up their innate psychic powers on stuff like this instead of saving it up for a...

Chicago White Sox radio man Hawk Harrelson was not too happy after Gordon Beckham collided with Conor Gillaspie last night, allowing Daniel Murphy to reach (only) first and the Mets to tie things up...

Jake Peavy has cleared the first major hurdle on his path to recovery. The former ace suffered a fractured rib earlier this month and has been allowing the bone to heal while resting. He has now reportedly moved on to playing some light catch.
Peavy threw for about seven minutes, about 75 feet. "It was good," peavy said.

Alexei Ramirez singled in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth after Chicago committed a costly error in the top half of the inning, and Chris Sale struck out 13 batters in eight innings to lead the White Sox over the New York Mets 5-4 on Tuesday night.
The Mets scored the tying run with two outs in the ninth on a defensive miscue. Pinch hitter Daniel Murphy hit a popup in...
So far we've taken a look at five somewhat-unknown pitchers: three starters and two relievers to go along with two first basemen. Although it appears Rick Hahn listened to me with Andy Wilkins' stock suddenly rising, it's now time to discuss two bigger names that, well, you may not know ... or at least not as well as maybe you should. Going back to the bullpen, we'...
The Chicago White Sox held first baseman Paul Konerko out of the starting lineup for last night's opener against the New York Mets due to soreness in his back. Manager Robin Ventura told reporters -- including Scott Merkin of MLB.com -- that Konerko's back was tight, and it's something that he's trying to work out.
"It's just tight," said manager...
During Wednesday’s game between the New York Mets and Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field, a woman seated behind home plate, who wasn’t paying attention to the action right in front of her as she was jibber-jabbing with the man seated next to her, had the ever-living crap scared out of her when a [...]The post Woman behind home plate jumps, screams after foul ball drills...
With the White Sox in full meltdown mode, media, fans, and bloggers have started to speculate about which members of the Sox could be sent elsewhere in exchange for younger help. With each passing day and the losses and errors mounting up, the Sox fan base seems ready to part with anyone and everyone not named Chris Sale.
Trading veterans for prospects seems to be what...
While we’ve highlighted numerous prospects in recent weeks as guys Sox fans should begin to know a bit more, it’s been a while since we’ve put out a full-blown farm report that takes a look at what’s happening throughout the system.
It turns out that this White Sox off-day is perfect timing for one, as the past couple of days have been busy for Rick Hahn. The organization...
Tweet The Chicago White Sox were within one out of a victory Tuesday against the New York Mets. One out away from capping off an evening which saw White Sox starter Chris Sale allow just three runs, four hits, and two walks over eight innings, while striking out thirteen. Then this happened. The look [...]
Well, Anthony Young can sleep well tonight. Or toss and turn ... depending on how he looks at it.
Shaun Marcum pitched eight brilliant innings against an offensively challenged White Sox lineup, and the Mets scored three runs with the help of the White Sox Little League defense and came away with a 3-0 victory, one that was credited to Marcum for his first of the season. Sure...
The White Sox offense may have reached a new low tonight, getting shutout by an 0-9 pitcher in Shaun Marcum. Also, the defense may have reached a new low, as they were pretty much solely responsible for all three Mets runs in the fifth inning.
It was another tough one to swallow, and it seems like every time I write the game recap, that's the case. Maybe I'm bad...
Well, now that the Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup and completed an epic season in Chicago sports history, all that we have left is baseball.
Unfortunately, the White Sox have not lived up to the standard their brethren on the ice have established. They are coming off a series win in Kansas City though, so that’s something.
The Sox return home to Chicago...
With Wheeler Day less than a day away, the young right-hander has one goal he’d like to accomplish tomorrow night at U.S. Cellular Field when he takes on Chris Sale of the Chicago White Sox and that is to cut down the free passes.
Speaking on a conference call with reporters, Zack Wheeler said, “I walked a lot of people last time. I just got to keep my walks down.”
