It's official...Drew Peterson is a killer. And what does that have to do with baseball? Nothing.But..."this is better than the White Sox winning the World Series," Nick Savio said about his sister's killer being found guilty.Peterson, a former police sergeant, faces a maximum 60 years in prison. Savio is, obviously, a proud fan of the American League Central-leading Chicago White Sox.

Catching a ball at a game has to be one of the greatest thrills a fan can have. I’m speaking out of assumption since I’ve never had the fortune of catching a ball at a game, but it sure looks awesome. Think about how lucky one has to be to even have the opportunity to catch a ball. Out of thousands of fans in attendance, the ball has to...
Rumors began to swirl on Chicago talk radio and in social media yesterday, that Chicago White Sox catcher, A.J. Pierzynski tested positive for performance enhancing drugs and would begin serving a 50-game suspension immediately, essentially being lost for the season. With the White Sox clinging to a one-game lead over the Detroit Tigers, losing the veteran catcher for the season...
“Whatever Ozzie is now personality-wise comes from his inherent Ozzieness. None of the people he played with and for could mold that. There’s only one Say Anything Kid.” -Rick Morrissey, Ozzie’s School of Management When one thinks of successful management techniques, Ozzie Guilllen is not necessarily the first name that comes to mind. While he brought [...]
The last thing the White Sox needed in the middle of a heated pennant race with Detroit were
distractions thrown their way. But there it was on Friday, front and center, so much so that catcher A.J. Pierzynski addressed the
media before the eventual 7-5 loss to Kansas City, over an internet rumor that said the veteran was under
suspicion for steroid use by Major League Baseball...
The Chicago White Sox will be without Adam Dunn and Kevin Youkilis for Friday night's series opener against the Kansas City Royals.
Dunn aggravated a right oblique strain that cost him two games last weekend.
Manager Robin Ventura said he hopes Dunn can return to the lineup Saturday. Dunn is second in the majors with 38 home runs. He is hitting .208 with a team-high 88 RBIs...
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of what has been posted today to Ozzie Guillen’s Twitter account. Yes, Ozzie is a crazy maniac who doesn’t usually make sense in English, but these tweets are more incoherent than usual. Man juices? And there’s so much more. For example: whit. all. this. trafic. lol. but. is. ok. i. going. to. listen. el. tigre. rafael. salsa. program...
For a guy that has been on four different teams in the past two seasons, Chicago White Sox outfielder DeWayne Wise sure has a knack for making the highlight reel.
Wise was brought in to pitch the 9th inning as his Sox were trailing the Minnesota Twins 18-8. He shut the Twins out with a double-play ground ball and a pop fly out.
His secret pitch? Well, it was also his only pitch...
Alex Rios homered twice and drove in a career-high six runs to lead the Chicago White Sox to their fourth straight victory, 6-2 over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday.
Rios hit a grand slam in the first inning and a two-run shot in the sixth to help extend Chicago's lead in the AL Central to 1 1/2 games over Detroit.
The Twins erupted for 18 runs against Chicago pitching Tuesday...
iam. baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack — Ozzie Guillen (@OzzieGuillen) September 5, 2012 It has been 110 long, Ozzie Guillen-less days on the interwebs since the Miami Marlins skipper delighted us with his sometimes nonsensical, often in Spanish and always entertaining ramblings courtesy of his Twitter account. And even though the Marlins are suffering through a terrible season, it [...]
It is hard to imagine who would be playing third base for the Chicago White Sox right now had general manager Kenny Williams not gone out and gotten proven veteran Kevin Youkilis.
Would Omar Vizquel be back in black by now?
The Sox started out the season ready to give Brent Morel time to grow into the position. However, a solid team performance in April and a surge in May...
Last Thursday, I took a stab at predicting how batter’s swing influences their ground ball / fly ball splits. One of the most important retorts to the research (a retort made both in the comments and on The Book blog) was that pitch location was the determining factor of bat angles — what I was attributing to hitter tendencies (at least for hitters who have big GB/FB platoon...
2012 BANDAI OWNERS LEAGUE LASTINGS MILLEDGE
Mets COTW is back in town after 5 weeks in Japan, jet lagged as hell and raring to go.
While in Tokyo, I dropped 5,000 yen on Japanese baseball cards at an Akihabara hobby shop. All in the name of research, I assured my wife, as she cocked her head and arched an eyebrow or two.
The primary card set in Japan is called “Owners League”...
