Three runs isn’t an overwhelming amount of offensive support, but it got the job done Sunday afternoon. The Chicago White Sox stopped their five-game losing streak by defeating the Indians 3-1. The man mainly responsible for this was Jake Peavy (2-1). The former Cy Young winner threw an outstanding game, striking out 11 batters while walking none. The only Indian that got the best of him was the leadoff hitter Michael Bourn. Other than that, Peavy settled in and retired twelve batters in a row. The Sox managed to provide three runs of support in the form of home runs. Obviously that shouldn’t come as a surprise since the Sox have trouble getting runs on the board any other way. What is surprising is who hit them. Paul Konerko had a two-run blast in the sixth that scored Adam Dunn, who reached on a walk. Normally this wouldn’t be anything out of the ordinary. However, the team captain has started this season on a bit of a slump, having only one multi-hit game and batting only .243. T...

Goodbye, Adam Dunn

If you look back through the archives of this blog, you’ll read a lot of good times for us provided by The Big Donkey Adam Dunn. He was the original Godfather of Diamond Hoggers. He was a key cog on our fantasy teams from about 2002 until 2008. He probably gave us anywhere from 250 to 300 fantasy home runs, and was the reason we won the home run title every year. This season, we...

Adam Dunn’s Failed Experiment

Adam Dunn arrived in the Major Leagues in 2001. Since then, he has led the major leagues in both walks (1,172) and strikeouts (2,046) and is third in home runs (408), and his career stands as something of the perfect example of the Three True Outcomes. Of the 7,256 times he’s walked up to the plate, 3,702 of those PAs (51%) have ended without defensive involvement. Dunn has...

Tyler Greene: Chicago White Sox activate the former St. Louis Cardinals first rounder

Tyler Greene, the former Cardinals enigmatic first rounder, is a player that was not liked very well in St. Louis.

Sale: “Had No Intentions” Of Hitting Brantley Following Grand Slam

One of the key plays in this afternoon’s 9-4 Tribe victory over the White Sox was Mark Reynolds’s grand slam with nobody out that extended the Indians’ lead to 7-2 in the fifth inning.
