Chicago White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy has been added to the American League All-Star team as a replacement for Los Angeles Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson, who is out with a blister on the middle finger of his left hand. Wilson, 9-5 with a 2.43 ERA, pitched in last season's All-Star Game when he was with the Texas Rangers. Wilson signed a five-year, $77.5 million deal with the Angels last December. He has had trouble with broken fingernails and blisters all season. Peavy is 7-5 with a 2.85 ERA. He finished second to the Rangers' Yu Darvish for a spot in the All-Star Game in the fans' online Final Vote last week.

Told ya all that All-Star campaigning crap was a waste of time. I told you that Chicago White Sox and their fans’ mindless jingoism and lemming behavior to vote Jake Peavy into the Midsummer classic was for naught- not because he finished second in the voting, but because I knew HE WOULD GET THERE ANYWAY. As an injury replacement.
And he did. This is the third All-Star nod for...

The Los Angeles Angels' first half featured an old double-play combo. "We've been, in the first half, like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday. "We know the really poor start that we got off to. We also know the untapped potential that was in this team early. We're seeing it start to surface." The Texas Rangers -- with the...

But a four-day respite from the grind of the American League West also comes at a welcome time. With almost half a season left to play and the Texas Rangers still...
The Chicago White Sox turned a lot of heads in the first half. The team people thought couldn’t contend has a three game lead in the A.L. Central Division and they could have made it four if they didn’t lose to the Toronto Blue Jays 11-9 in their last game before the All-Star Break. The White Sox were down in the game by 4 runs until the fifth inning when the White Sox turned...
