Chicago White Sox
New York Yankees
NEW YORK -- The Chicago White Sox battered around a New York Yankees rookie starter making his major league debut, and didn't do too badly against his successors either. Until Chicago's final two outs, when the Yankees had another player make his major-league pitching debut, as outfielder Dewayne Wise recorded the last two outs after Chicago finished off a 14-7 win with a four-run ninth. On a sweltering Friday night at Yankee Stadium, Chicago won its second straight game against the Yankees, pounding out 19 hits. A.J. Pierzynski hit two home runs, and had three hits and three RBI for the White Sox, who won their fourth in a row overall. Alexi Ramirez had four hits, including a home run, and three RBI while Paul Konerko hit his 14th homer of the season and had three hits. "We had a spurt like this like a month ago," Konerko said of the hot offense. "When you have them, you just try to ride it out. It's not gonna stay like that forever. It's toug...

On the cusp of their second straight loss, trailing 14-7 in the 9th inning Yankees manager Joe Girardi was out of options at the pitching position. So he decided to call upon his outfielder Dewayne Wise to take the bump. Now most of us our probably thinking how many hits and runs did Wise give up, but the exact opposite happened. He actually got two pretty good hitters out in Paul...

Did Spiderman just fly out of CC Sabathia’s derriere?
What better way to advertise for the new Spiderman movie than to have the webbed-wonder shoot out of a 300lb pitcher’s a$$? You have to commend the New York Yankees and Warner Brothers Studios for their interesting new advertising campaign.

In a story that will remind you that some athletes still have some genuine kindness in them, Jake Peavy is donating $100 to cancer research for every strikeout in the MLB today. Yes, that means league-wide, not just in his game.
This is all according to Darryl Van Schouwen, one of the White Sox beat writers for the Chicago Sun Times.
To add to this, Peavy went out to the mound...
Last month, an unfortunate graphic placement during a YES Network telecast between the Braves/Yankees caused one of America's greatest super heroes to appear to fly out of Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia's rear-end.
The spot was for the new Spiderman flick and keep an eye on the lower left hand corner of the screen:
During Saturday afternoon's sweltering matinee in Yankee Stadium, Derek Jeter turned to avoid getting hit in the jewels by an inside pitch and— when replayed in slow-motion— it kind of looks like he was doing the Watusi or some other dance from the '60's.
Whether or not Jake Peavy's fifth-inning throw was intentional, Jeter just shook it a little more and took...

The Chicago Whites Sox started winning this season early. Many thought this was a fluke and the Sox would start losing. Well, they haven’t. The White Sox took it to the New York Yankees last night handing the men in pin stripes a loss 14-7. When the Yankees get hammered like this, you have to take a look at the team that handed them the beating. The White Sox are for real folks...
He's long been known as a great baseball player. New York Yankees legend Don Larsen is also a good grandfather.
Larsen said Thursday he wants to pay for his grandkids' college education by auctioning off a prized possession - the uniform he wore when he pitched the only perfect game in World Series history.
People from around the world will be invited to make bids online...
I predicted yesterday before Warren's start that his performance would be "disappointing."I predicted that he would not leave the game with 8 innings of two hit ball behind him, and no more than one run yielded. That he would not be like all the AA and AAA fill-in starters the Yankees occasionally face, who shut us down as if the Yankees were fielding a high school...
MLB Derek Jeter laced a single up the middle in the seventh inning Thursday, and entered the atmosphere of one of his boyhood idols, Cal Ripken Jr. The Yankees' captain tied the Orioles legend for 13th place on baseball's all-time hit list, with 3,184 hits. Jeter's next target is Nap Lajoie at 3,252. The 38-year-old could challenge the 4,000-hit mark before his...

Two important wins in June 67 seemed to propel the team forward. The first was a walkoff two-run homer by Tony Conigliaro in the eleventh inning at Fenway to defeat the White Sox 2-1. Chicago had broken open a scoreless game in the top half on a Ken Berry single to plate rookie Walt Williams. In one of the most exciting moments in Tony's all-too-short career, he stepped to the...
