Found April 29, 2012 on The Sports Bank:
Chicago Sun-Times sports columnist and long time White Sox beat reporter Joe Cowley has long been one of the most colorful follows on Twitter. He rivals Ozzie Guillen, or perhaps even Borat, in the candor department. But this time, he’s gone a little too candid. Cowley went WAY  over the line making a ton of sexist jokes (many of which were the horribly unfunny stuck in the 1950s “women can’t drive” variety) while stuck on the tarmac in an airplane. When a female follower stuck back at him, Cowley just made himself look like even more of a troglodytic ******* with a really bad Borscht Belt comedian sense of humor. Now his twitter account is deleted, and Cowley may be headed for a suspension from the Sun-Times. Courtesy of Deadspin, here are some of the more offensive tweets. “Chick pilot. Should I be OK with that or am I just a sexist caveman?” I’m going to go with B. “I’m more likely to see a Squatch before I see a hot flight attendant. Then again, I think the airlines are hiring...

John Danks’ Struggles Overshadow Solid Start By Chicago White Sox Rotation

Currently riding a 5-game losing streak but still very close to first place in the  AL Central, the 10-11 White Sox have had quite the roller coaster of an April. They have had two impressive winning streaks but have followed them up with disappointing series, not being able to put together any prolonged success to this point. As all of you know, hitting can win you games, but...

White Sox Off Day Episode #5: The Good and Bad From April with Tom Fornelli

The Chicago White Sox were predicted by many to be toiling in the depths of the AL Central Standings. Yet after the first month of the season, the White Sox sit at .500 and within a whisper of first place Cleveland. It’s been a mixed bag so far for the White Sox. Has it been more good or more bad? Tom Fornelli from South Side Asylum check in on the latest episode of White Sox Off...

Chicago White Sox: Almost perfect again

The Chicago White Sox bounced back from a five-game skid today versus the Red Sox. Their Boston counterparts have really been handing it to the Sox during this four-game set. Thursday and Friday saw the good guys lose 3-10 both times and Jake Peavy’s fantastic one-run complete game was overshadowed yesterday by a shutout performance by Jon Lester. Luckily Gavin Floyd was on the...

Series Preview: Indians at White Sox 5/1-3

Roster Moves: This series will see a couple of changes to the lineup that should help the team offensively. Shin-Soo Choo is expected to return from his 5 game absence to take back his starting right field job from Aaron Cunningham. He has been bothered by a strained hamstring. The other addition will be new left-fielder Johnny Damon. He will most likely be taking Shelley Duncan...

Floyd, White Sox stop Red Sox's bid for sweep

The right-hander helped the Chicago White Sox prevent a four-game Boston sweep with a 4-1 win Sunday at U.S. Cellular Field. After winning 10-3, 10-3 and 1-0 in the first three games of the series, the Red Sox were held hitless through the first six innings by Floyd (2-3)...

Kelly Shoppach to Start Behind the Dish, Bat Ninth in Series Finale Against Gavin Floyd, White Sox

There was speculation this past offseason that the Red Sox were interested in Gavin Floyd. The right-hander eventually stayed put in Chicago, though, and he'll be looking to shut down the Boston lineup on Sunday. That'll be a tall task for Floyd, though, as the Red Sox enter the series finale riding a six-game winning streak that includes three victories over the White Sox...

Lester leads Red Sox to 1-0 win over Peavy & White Sox

CHICAGO -- You can't blame the Boston Red Sox if they were a little tired coming into Saturday's game against the White Sox. After all, the Red Sox had scored 20 runs and banged out 25 hits in their previous two games (against only six runs and 13 hits for the White Sox), both identical 10-3 wins vs. Chicago. So it's not surprising that Saturday's third game of...

A's, Inge Look For Boston Bounceback

As uplifting as Wednesday’s 14-inning, comeback win over the Chicago White Sox was, Sunday’s 5-2 loss to Baltimore in the bottom of ninth inning was the counterweight to offset that momentum for the Oakland A's.

Recap: Gavin Floyd snaps Red Sox' six-game winning streak

Chicago ended the Red Sox' six-game winning streak in a pitcher's duel this afternoon, winning 3-1. Gavin Floyd took a no-hitter into the 7th, surrendering his first hit on a seeing-eye single to Dustin Pedroia with one out.

Marlins president David Samson admits team lied about season ticket sales

The pathetic attendance at Florida Marlins games has always been a subject of ridicule for the franchise, but at least they’ve finally admitted how bad the situation was. Marlins president David Samson recently conceded that the team lied about its amount of season ticket holders. From an April 9 New Yorker story about Ozzie Guillen: The team typically claimed season-ticket sales...
