And you thought the Florida Marlins had attendance woes! Over at CBS Sports the official box score of the Tigers-White Sox game at Comiskey Park in Chicago last night had a listed attendance of 1.

No matter how many teams we keep hearing from the local media that the Diamondbacks have no interest in Jake Peavy, the rumor just won’t die. The latest report, from the Chicago Tribune, claims the Diamondbacks will scout Peavy’s Thursday start against the Tigers.
Scouts are well aware White Sox starter Jake Peavy will pitch Thursday in what appears more than likely as a showcase outing against the Tigers who beat them 6-2 Tuesday night.
And some of those evaluators for pitching-thirsty teams likely will stay through the weekend thanks to a sudden development.
Reliever Jesse Crain whom manager Robin Ventura wanted to make at least one minor...

Red-hot right-hander Matt Garza was close to going to the Rangers in a sizable deal Friday before a snag set the sides back, and word now is that the Cubs are looking at other possible landing spots as well for Garza, who is 5-0 with a 1.24 ERA over his last six starts and presumably coveted in a very thin pitchers' market.
While Garza, who pitches again Monday for the Cubs...
The Braves really blew it in the Windy City. The Chicago White Sox (39-56) proved too much for the National League East division leaders over the weekend, despite a promising start to the series for Atlanta.
