CHICAGO (AP) -- Kevin Youkilis, Adam Dunn and Alex Rios homered in the first inning off Roy Oswalt and All-Star Chris Sale won his 10th game Tuesday night and the Chicago White Sox routed the Texas Rangers 19-2. Playing in his first home game with the White Sox since his trade from Boston on June 24, Youkilis had three hits and drove in four runs in a meeting of division leaders that saw Chicago score its most runs this season.

Youk’s A Good Locker Room Guy

So the Red Sox traded Kevin Youkilis to the White Sox, and last night he gets a walk-off hit, and today he scores the tying run and hits a home run that ends up being the difference in a 2-1 win.  Terrific. Meanwhile, Will Middlebrooks is hurt and it’s unclear how bad it is, and the Red Sox are in the midst of a three-game losing streak. I hate sports. But I don’t hate whatever...

The Razzball Podcast — The One With The Siamese Beaver

We talk at length about Tim Lincecum and Roy Oswalt.  Then the Brandon Belt subject hits and I lose my cool with Bruce Bochy.  Someone needs to shake some sense into that man’s ginormous head!  Why can’t they just give Belt a shot?  Did Belt make some crack directed towards Bochy that he couldn’t see the TV like in the movie, So I Married An Axe Murderer?  ”Well, that’s...
