Alejandro De Aza gets infield double after Indians lose pop-up in smoke (Video)

Chicago White Sox CF Alejandro De Aza managed to hit an infield double Tuesday night as the Cleveland Indians infielders lost the ball in a cloud of smoke. The smoke came from fireworks which were set off to celebrate a home run by the previous White Sox batter, Gordon Beckham.

Watching Ubaldo is Fun!

This is getting downright disgraceful. After his last start, I proclaimed to be officially off “the Ubaldo Jimenez will turn it around” bandwagon. Many of you told me that I was hasty and needed to give him more time to find himself. Was last night’s horrific performance where he lasted just four and two-thirds innings while walking six Chicago White Sox, enough for you to...

That's just what happens when you play the most demanding position on the infield, as the tools to succeed at the Major League level are higher than perhaps any other position. But for the Cleveland Indians...

White Sox-Tigers Preview

Prior to the start of the season, few would have considered a matchup between Detroit's Drew Smyly and Chicago's Jake Peavy a pitchers' duel. Both are off to sensational starts, however, and runs could be hard to come by when the two square off in Friday night's series opener between the Tigers and White Sox at Comerica Park. After opening 9-3, Detroit (12-12) has...

Joe Cowley down to final strike at Sun-Times

According to the sources of Time Out Chicago’s Robert Feder (a long time Chicago Sun-Times writer, so I would very seriously trust these sources), Sun-Times sports columnist Joe Cowley is one step away from being canned. As far as his employment goes, the former White Sox reporter hired away from the Daily Southtown is trailing by a couple runs with two out and two strikes in...
