As this season approaches the All-Star break, fans of the Chicago White Sox are wondering if Kenny Williams has any more tricks up his sleeve. The GM has already made an impressive move when he acquired Kevin Youkilis from the Red Sox for Brent Lillibridge and Zach Stewart.

Tuesday's start against the Texas Rangers was the last start for Chicago White Sox left-hander Chris Sale before the All-Star break, and the lefty made sure it was memorable. Sale went 7 1/3 innings, allowing just one run on five hits while fanning four in the White Sox's 19-2 win. He lowered his season ERA to 2.19, making the case for Texas manager Ron Washington, who...
The career of Bobby Jenks got off on the wrong foot when the right-hander was not allowed to play a lot of high school baseball due to his poor academic performance.
Book ending that and his release today from the Boston Red Sox has been good times, bad times and more than a couple of rowdy moments.
