Found March 30, 2012 on The Sports Bank:
There isn’t a ton of reason to be optimistic about either Chicago baseball team this MLB season. The Cubs figure to be bad, and the White Sox only marginally better. But there is an interesting comeback story possibly brewing on the White Sox pitching staff. For a guy to play for the lowly Windy City Thunderbolts, who play in suburban Crestwood, IL, the heart of White Sox fan demographics, to come back to the big club. Interesting….         While we can count nine players (all pitchers) who seem to have opening day major league jobs sewed up (not counting New York Mets lefty Tim Byrdak and Arizona shortstop Stephen Drew, who will be on the disabled list), the next week still will be nervous time for several onetime Independent players who seem to have a chance of making the treasured 25-man rosters.  These are the spring numbers they had put up heading into play Thursday:       Starter-reliever Dylan Axelrod (Windy City, Frontier League) limited San Diego to three runs (eight hits)...

Rockies 3, White Sox 1

John Danks was sharp in his final outing before starting on opening day, pitching six innings for the Chicago White Sox on Saturday in a 3-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies. Danks allowed one run and three hits, walking none and striking out two. He will pitch Friday at Texas. Rockies starter Drew Pomeranz threw six scoreless innings. He gave up four hits, struck out two and walked...

Absence of Ozzie Not Enough to Shut Sox Mouth

Jake Peavy sure has a loose yapper. In fact, it might be even more loose than his formerly detached latissimus dorsi, just one of the myriad things that have led to his supreme suckage in a White Sox uniform. Sports Illustrated recently predicted the White Sox would lose 95 games in 2012. I don’t see that prediction as overly hyperbolic. The Sox were awful last year, and they haven’t...

Ozzie Guillen is a self-proclaimed ass man

Ozzie Guillen is so vulgar and unfiltered that he’s more than perfect for Twitter. So when GQ conducted a Q&A with the new Marlins skipper, the magazine did it entirely through the social media platform. During the tweet-chat, we learn more about Guillen’s affinity for the show “Cake Boss,” Bed Bath & Beyond, and, yes, whether he prefers breasts or the buttocks. ...

Don Mattingly calls Ozzie Guillen ‘this little s***’ during interview

Most people consider Ozzie Guillen to be an annoying loudmouth. Apparently many players view him the same way. During a radio interview on “The Dan Patrick Show” Thursday, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly referred to the Marlins manager as “this little s***.” Patrick asked Mattingly if there was any manager he wanted to physically confront. “No, not at all,” Mattingly...

Don Mattingly Calls Ozzie Guillen “This Little Sh*t” On Dan Patrick Show

Talk radio goes days and days without something that piques our interest. Blah, blah, blah. And then Don Mattingly comes on the Dan Patrick Show and drops a “this little sh*t” bomb when referencing Ozzie Guillen. You just figure Donny will talk some baseball, keep it clean and get off the phone. Nope. Commence the iPhone i-Team! VIDEO! NOW! HURRY!  Later in the show Dan asked...

And here’s Don Mattingly calling Ozzie Guillen a “little sh*t” on the Dan Patrick Show

No need to set the scene for this one.Dan Patrick sets it up nicely and Dodgers manager Don Mattingly knocks it out the park. Via Busted Coverage

White Sox sign Conor Jackson

The Chicago White Sox have signed Conor Jackson to a minor league deal, Mark Gonzales of The Chicago Tribute reports. Jackson had signed a minor league deal with the Rangers earlier this offseason where he hit .091 in 33 at-bats (3 hits) while striking out 5 times this Spring. Last season, Jackson started the season off with the A's before he was traded to the Red Sox at the...
