Kevin Youkilis Named American League Player of the Week for White Sox

Kevin Youkilis has gone on a bit of a tear since leaving Beantown. Youkilis, who was batting .233 before being traded to Chicago to make room for Will Middlebrooks at third base, has lifted his average to .262 since going 17-for-49 (.347) for the White Sox. That run includes a seven-game hitting streak, which was enough to earn Youkilis the honor of American League Player of the...

What Chicago White Sox GM Kenny Williams Should Do Before the Trade Deadline

When dissecting the Chicago White Sox current 25-man roster, the holes are few and far between. For the most part, the starting pitching has been good behind aces Chris Sale and Jake Peavy; the offense has been powerful, or at least timely, as the team leads the majors in hitting with runners in scoring position; and the bullpen has been solid to this point, overcoming an excess...

Dunn says he gave up All-Star appearance to aid Butler

The National League team used all 21 of its available hitters Tuesday during its 8-0 win the All-Star Game. The American League team used 20 of 21, but there was a reason for the lone omission. Chicago White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn was supposed to take over for Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz in the middle innings, but he never got into the game. Dunn said he gave up his...

Told ya Jake Peavy gets all-star nod despite losing vote

I told you that Chicago White Sox and their fans’ mindless jingoism and lemming behavior to vote Jake Peavy into the Midsummer classic was for naught- not because he finished second in the voting, but because I knew HE WOULD GET THERE ANYWAY. As an injury replacement. And he did. This is the third All-Star nod for...

The Chicago White Sox Finish First Half With A Three Game Lead In A.L. Central Will It Hold?

The Chicago White Sox turned a lot of heads in the first half. The team people thought couldn’t contend has a three game lead in the A.L. Central Division and they could have made it four if they didn’t lose to the Toronto Blue Jays 11-9 in their last game before the All-Star Break. The White Sox were down in the game by 4 runs until the fifth inning when the White Sox turned...

State of the Tribe: All-Star Break 2012

At the half way point in the season, the Indians find themselves just where they were projected, between the White Sox and the Tigers. The unexpected part is that the White Sox are in first while the Tigers are in third. Cleveland is currently 3 games behind Chicago and a half game ahead of Detroit. The Indians will be able to decide their own fate this season, at least as far as...
