Everything Jake Peavy was saying Wednesday made sense, with the veteran pitcher talking about how dangerous the Chicago White Sox would be in the postseason. "Because we can pitch," Peavy said. "And our offense has potential to run up some big (numbers). If we hit some homers with some guys on base, with the pitching staff and the bullpen evolving the way it's evolved, and we have a few starters that can get on a roll." They may not get the chance if things keep going in the current direction. The Sox have now lost seven of their last eight games to fall out of first place in the AL Central. The meltdown continued Wednesday, this time with the bullpen at fault in a 6-4 loss to the Cleveland Indians. The Detroit Tigers edged the Kansas City Royals 5-4 to take a one-game lead in the division race. The White Sox led 4-3 before the Indians tied the game in the sixth inning against Donnie Veal and Nate Jones. Cleveland took the lead in the seventh agains...

ROOT FOR THE HOME TEAM
The Wall Street Journal did a recent study of which MLB announcers root the hardest on-air for the home team and the identity of the man in the #1 spot should come as no surprise.
For the first time in almost a month, the White Sox share first place in the American League Central with the Detroit Tigers. Now with the most optimism a White Sox fan with ulcers from the stresses of watching his team can muster, believes: The Chicago White Sox will win the AL Central.
How is it possible that a team that can’t hit the weight of Alexei Ramirez (175 lbs.) with...
Chicago lost two games to the worst team in the A.L. Central division. They sent Hector Santiago to the mound last night to try and shut down what has been the worse team in M.L.B. since the all-star break. Santiago couldn’t get the job down as he gave up 5 hits and 3 runs only working 3-1/3 innings. That wasn’t what the White Sox were hoping for. The White Sox now trial the...
If Ozzie Guillen winds up keeping his job in Miami next season, Heath Bell may have to be traded. It has become evident this week that there is little to no respect between the manager and closer. During a radio appearance on Monday, Bell said it is hard to respect Guillen since Ozzie lied to him and led him to believe he would have a chance to win back the closer’s job. On Tuesday...
The slumping Chicago White Sox fell out of the AL Central lead for the first time in two months, walking 12 batters and losing to the Cleveland Indians, 6-4, Wednesday night.
Chicago, which has lost seven of eight, had been in sole possession or tied at the top every day since July 24. But Detroit moved ahead by a game, beating Kansas City, 5-4, with a week left in the regular season...
The Chicago White Sox gave Detroit an opening to tie for the AL Central lead when Gordon Beckham hit into a game-ending forceout with the potential tying run on second base Tuesday in a 4-3 loss to the last-place Cleveland Indians.
Down 4-0, the White Sox closed when A.J. Pierzynski and Dayan Viciedo hit consecutive fifth-inning home runs off Corey Kluber (2-4) and then pulled within...
White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy has been pushed back a day and will start Thursday's series opener against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Chicago manager Robin Ventura will start left-hander Hector Santiago in Wednesday's series finale against the Cleveland Indians. Santiago is 3-1 with a 3.45 ERA in two starts and 38 relief appearances this season.
Ventura will give lefty Chris Sale...
Francisco Liriano didn’t help the Chicago White Sox get any separation between themselves and the Detroit Tigers who are now tied for the top spot in the American League Central at 82-72. Liriano had a terrible outing against the last place Cleveland Indians, he gave up 7 hits and 4 runs to a team that has been suffering at the plate. Liriano only lasted 3-2/3′s innings as...
Left-hander Francisco Liriano deserved better in the Chicago White Sox's 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday afternoon. A fourth-inning feed from second baseman Gordon Beckham to shortstop Alexei Ramirez should have been better, which could have led to an inning-ending double play. Instead, it led to a three-run inning for Liriano and a loss for the Sox, their sixth...

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen is brushing off criticism from reliever Heath Bell.
Speaking on Tuesday about the team's latest ordeal, Guillen said Bell is entitled to his opinion. But the manager added that he has received about 30 supportive messages from current players and those he managed with the Chicago White Sox from 2004-2011.
Guillen indicated that Bell has not fully...
The Chicago White Sox aren't panicking despite falling out of first place in the AL Central, but facing a streaking Tampa Bay Rays club may not be the best way to regroup.
The slumping White Sox open a four-game series Thursday night against the streaking Rays, who are trying to win eight straight for the first time in eight years.
Chicago fell into second place in the Central...
With Bud Selig reaching a deal with the replacement umpires, we can be sure there will be no more awful calls like those that marred the White Sox series. Never mind, that was that other awful commissioner.
The Indians did end up winning their second series of the month, with an opportunity at one more before September ends. Unlike the series with Chicago, this one will be absolutely...
