Found June 21, 2012 on Holdout Sports:

Chicago White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski lost track of the outs as he was catching in the top of the eighth inning of Wednesday night's game against the Chicago Cubs. That led to an awkward but funny moment as Pierzynski jogged off the field into the dugout not realizing that there were only two outs.

This seems to be an epidemic among the major leaguers this year, as just in the last month we've also seen Rickie Weeks, Ichiro Suzuki and Starlin Castro lose track of the outs in the field. With the money these guys get paid, you would think the least they could do is pay attention while they're playing.

3 Changes That Would Instantly Make Chicago’s White Sox-Cubs Crosstown Classic Relevant Again

Over time, the flair of the Crosstown Classic has faded. In fact, it’s gotten to the point where if you are a casual baseball fan, you may not have even realized the White Sox and Cubs just wrapped up their last series of the year. Can the Crosstown Series between the White Sox and Cubs be saved? Yes, but only if some changes are made. (Image credit: AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast...

Ozzie Guillen Says He Prefers Weather Hot Because of Its Effect on Women (Video)

Ozzie Guillen has known a hot day or two, and after spending much of his playing and managing career in Chicago, he's not going to complain about 90-degree weather.

White Sox 7, Cubs 0

Gavin Floyd pitched four-hit ball into the seventh, Gordon Beckham homered, and the struggling Chicago White Sox beat the Cubs 7-0 Wednesday to avoid a three-game sweep.

Chicago White Sox Have a Big, Unexpected Problem: Pitching

Just over two weeks ago, the White Sox were rolling. It seemed they were scoring at will, and teams did not stand a chance to outslug the Chicago White Sox. However, it appears that all that mashing masked a huge problem the White Sox have developed. Now that the offense has come back down to Earth, it’s clear that outside of a few people, the White Sox pitching is not good enough...

Jake Peavy warns teammates “Detroit is coming.”

Following the White Sox 2-1 loss to the Cubs Tuesday night, White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy had a message for his teammates.  “Detroit is coming.” He’s right.  The Tigers have won seven of their last nine games and have moved within a game off .500.  While the winning percentage still is a far cry from where everybody expected it to be, all that really matters is their place...

Brewers-White Sox Preview

While the Chicago White Sox might normally like their chances of posting back-to-back wins for the first time in three weeks behind Chris Sale, it remains to be seen how the hard-throwing left-hander will bounce back from a rare off outing. Additionally, the Milwaukee Brewers' Zack Greinke is no stranger to getting hit hard on the South Side. Sale and Greinke square off as...

Ozzie Guillen Considers Several Options, Suggests Marlins Find Psychologist to Get Elusive Win

Ozzie Guillen wants a win -- no doubt about that. But even the veteran manager, now in his first year with Miami, is at a loss how to get it.

Guillen called on a bevy of pitchers in Wednesday's loss, including those who would have been used as insurance...
