Chicago's Dunn surging, leaves 2011 in past

ST. LOUIS Adam Dunn has forgotten about the free fall. It's a new year, he's quick to mention, and the memory of a lost first season in black and silver is best left in the past where it belongs. Now the hulking Chicago White Sox designated hitter is a model of comfort and cool. Why not? He sat near a corner stall in the visitors clubhouse Wednesday at Busch Stadium loving...

Paul Konerko: Hall of Fame worthy?

Everyone in Chicago knows the value and skill of White Sox team captain Paul Konerko. However, his recent numbers have been attracting the attention of baseball fans and authorities across the country. Since the Sox are a much smaller market team compared to the crosstown Cubs, national attention is rare and usually negative. Because of this, Konerko’s accomplishments are refreshing...

After win, Quintana could get another start for White Sox

Southpaw Jose Quintana held up his part of the bargain. Well, at least he continued to give Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura some serious thinking to do. The rookie left-hander went 5 1/3 innings Tuesday in the White Sox's 6-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals, allowing one run on 10 hits and no walks while fanning four. The outing lowered Quintana's season ERA...

Where did Alejandro De Aza come from?

The White Sox' 2012 season has to be considered a surprise. Comebacks by Dunn and Rios (from the dead), a big season by Konerko and Pierzynski and the emergence of Viciendo have been big factors as has the pitching of Peavy and Sale. But perhaps the biggest surprise has been from the guy setting the table at the top of the lineup, Alejandro De Aza. If you are anything like this...
