Veteran pitcher Jake Peavy made his 30th start of the season on Friday, continuing to show some inconsistencies as of late, as the Angels beat him 6-2 in Anaheim. As it lines up right now, Peavy will make two more regular-season starts for the Sox, with the hope of pitching into the postseason. But it is now looking like they will be the final two regular-season starts that Peavy will make in a Sox uniform. The right-hander had been informed that the team was not picking up the $22 million club option for next season, and while it wasn't surprised by it at all, it again gave him something to think about moving forward into the offseason. "I get it," Peavy said. "But (the contract) is not in the forefront of my mind at all. There's nothing that I'm worried about other than trying to get this team in the playoffs. I wouldn't even know where to start with finances and how any of that works out. This will be my first time in this position, but...

Francisco Liriano snags ball between legs

Your browser does not support iframes. This goes without saying, but this could've ended real bad for Chicago White Sox southpaw Francisco Liriano. The play occurred Thursday night in Kansas City when Royals hitter Eric Hosmer hits a sharp one-hopper right back up the box. Divine intervention then kicks in as Liriano makes a no-look, behind-the-back grab to throw out Hosmer at...

Chicago White Sox slugger Paul Konerko says he will have surgery on his left wrist Thursday. Konerko said the procedure will remove a bone fragment from the wrist. The surgery will be performed at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. Konerko, who is batting .299 with 25 homers and 73 RBI in 143 games, wasn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Indians. He...

Report: Williams to hand White Sox's GM reins to Hahn

It has been one of the worst kept secrets for the Chicago White Sox front office, but whispers of it have now turned into screams, thanks to a USA Today story that reported Ken Williams will be promoted to team president, while assistant Rick Hahn will take over the general manager post Williams has held since October 2000. Williams sent an email to writers about the topic before...

White Sox manager Ventura ejected in Anaheim

White Sox manager Robin Ventura has been ejected in the fourth inning of Chicago's game against the Los Angeles Angels for arguing a balk called on Jose Quintana. Ventura was tossed by first base umpire Ed Hickox on Saturday night with the White Sox trailing 4-1 and in danger of seeing their AL Central lead drop to a half-game over second-place Detroit. The Angels had runners...

Royals 4, White Sox 3

Alex Rios was thrown out at the plate, Alexei Ramirez was picked off third base and the AL Central-leading Chicago White Sox again failed to come up with a clutch hit in a 4-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night.

Braves' Guillen not worried if he's on hotseat

The Marlins went into Friday 18 games under .500 but manager Ozzie Guillen didn't sound like a man worried about losing his job. "Can I say something about those (rumors)? Ha, ha, ha," Guillen said. "I laugh at that (expletive). I don't worry about what people say about that. I don't." Guillen said owner Jeffrey Loria has not spoken to him about...

Bring Back Lastings Milledge?

It is perhaps a sad commentary on the current state of the Mets and their almost non-existent production from the outfield, but I want to assure you that this post is NOT written tongue-in-cheek. I’m sure most Mets fans remember when Milledge was the highly-touted first-round Mets’ draft pick who made a big splash in the major leagues after an impressive climb through the minors...
