Burning River Baseball:
Chicago White Sox
Boston Red Sox
Cleveland Indians (7-10) at Chicago White Sox (7-11)
Series 7, Games 18, 19 and 20
U.S. Cellular Field, Chicago: 0.827*, Extreme pitchers park.
The Indians will play the White Sox for the second series this season. The first series was very entertaining and I expect this one to be the same.
Slugger Adam Dunn has certainly struggled this season so far. He is batting just .098 this season and has played in all but one game, when he was held out during an inter league game at Washington with the DH spot unavailable. He has two home runs and five RBIs with a .213 slugging percentage and a .154 on-base percentage over his first 16 games.
Dayan Viciedo was diagnosed with a left oblique strain was put on the disabled-list on April 20th. He injured himself on a swing Thursday night at Toronto and was immediately removed from the game. It didn't look serious, although he was wincing in pain immediately after he was removed from ...

Beau Mills and his bucking bulls: The Indians scoring 19 runs was not the strangest news I saw yesterday. No, not even close. It began with a pair of tweets from @Indians (here and here) sharing pictures of a young bucking bull named Tuve (after Astros infielder Jose Altuve) that happens to be owned by Indians third-base coach Brad Mills and his son Beau, Cleveland’s 1st-round...
Danny Salazar (SP, Akron Aeros): 5 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 9 K.
Ah, now that’s more like it. Before Saturday, there was a mix of good and bad from Salazar in his previous three starts with the Aeros. He started the season out with a nice showing where he allowed one run over five innings, but the right-hander then allowed a total of eight earned runs in 7 2/3 innings since. However, Salazar...
Some news, notes, and thoughts from my Indians notebook….
It should be noted that while writing this the Indians were in the midst of an offensive explosion against the Astros on Saturday night scoring 19 runs on 22 hits.
It should also be noted that prior to Saturday’s game the Indians offense was in fact offensive to watch. Aside from Saturday night’s game...
Player of the Game: Mark Reynolds (1-for-3 with the game’s deciding homer and 1 RBI)
It was a wild one for the Tribe in Houston, as the Indians squeezed by the Astros, 5-4 in the series finale to win their second straight. In what was a back-and-forth seesaw battle of one run leads, Mark Reynolds would hit the game’s go-ahead homer to give Cleveland another ...
MLB News: The Chicago White Sox recalled Blake Tekotte on Sunday from Triple-A Charlotte. Helping fill the roster void created when Dayan Viciedo went on the disabled list, he is expected to take spot turns and offer bench depth.
Fantasy Ramifications: Tekotte holds no true fantasy baseball value. Not only is he not a starter int he majors, he isn’t even the main reserve. Look...
Cleveland Indians right-hander Brett Myers is expected to miss about a month due to tendinitis and a mild ligament sprain in his right elbow.
Myers pitched five innings of three-run ball against Houston on Friday, then said he had been dealing with a problem with the flexor tendon in his arm since spring training. He is 0-3 with an 8.02 ERA in three starts and one relief appearances...

Adam Dunn was hitting .098 in 61 at bats for the Chicago White Sox this season. Then he went 1-4 with you guessed it a homer and three strikeouts in a 5-3 loss to the Minnesota Twins. So going 1-4 “raised” his batting average to .108. This is what $15,000,000 a season gets you. This is what Adam Dunn is, White Sox people.
Move over Jaime Navarro, I think we have a worst all time...
Mark Reynolds' seventh homer of the season put Cleveland on top in the seventh inning and the Indians held on for a 5-4 win over the Houston Astros on Sunday.
The home run by Reynolds, who also homered in Cleveland's 19-6 win Saturday, was one of four solo homers for the Indians, who took two of three in the series.
Carlos Santana, Drew Stubbs and Yan Gomes also added home...
Over the weekend, Cleveland Indians outfielder Drew Stubbs did something that I've never seen happened at a Major League Baseball game.
It happened in the fourth inning of play against the Houston Astros as Stubbs homered off of a pitch thrown by Houston's Brett Oberholzer.
As the ball was leaving the yard at Minute Maid Park, Astros outfielder Rick Ankiel got a nice...
Retired Chicago White Sox legend Frank Thomas has two homes listed for sale, one in Libertyville, Illinois and the other just outside Las Vegas, Nevada. He’s asking for a combined $4.45 million for the two properties.
Frank Thomas, “The Big Hurt,” is one of the most decorated players in White Sox history. He won a World Series with the club in 2005, and played his final game...
Roster Update: Indians starter Scott Kazmir was recalled from the 15 day DL just before the game and infielder Cord Phelps was sent back to AAA in his place. Phelps was only on the team to help out at second while Jason Kipnis was recovering from his elbow injury. Now that Kipnis is back, Phelps is not needed. Other moves expected in the near future include Brett Myers possibly going...
I debated writing this wrap; I really did. You can just read over most other wraps we've written so far this season to get a feel for how this game went. Nonetheless, we'll take you through the painful game that was the Chicago White Sox' 12th loss of the 2013 season.
The Cleveland Indians took down the White Sox 3-2 in a comeback win over our south siders...
The White Sox dropped the second game of this weather-abbreviated three-game set to the Minnesota Twins as the bullpen did not do their job Sunday afternoon.
"Good Gavin" Floyd showed up for the first time this season, as he tossed six innings of one-run ball. He let up three walks, only three hits, and six strikeouts as he left the game late with his team leading...

Welcome fantasy baseballers to the week 4 edition of 3×3, where I advise you to pick up Lorenzo Cain, tell Adam Dunn to kick rocks, and hold Austin Jackson and B.J. Upton so tight you’ll never let them go.
Let’s get it on.
3 TO CUT
Adam Dunn, Chicago White Sox 1B
After spending the better part of his career as the quintessential three true outcomes...
