Ozzie Guillen: I need the FBI or DEA to protect Giancarlo Stanton

There are very few pitchers in baseball who look forward to facing young Marlins star Giancarlo Stanton. The 22-year-old outfielder is hitting .292 this season with 22 homers and 66 RBI. Whenever an opponent gets the opportunity to pitch around him, they almost always cash in. This leads to some tricky lineup decisions for Ozzie Guillen, who has recently been criticized for not giving...

White Sox 'achieve' dubious milestones

It was a weekend of milestones for the Chicago White Sox, but not all of them were ones that left the team very excited. The Sox were swept for just the second time this season, as Kansas City beat them 5-2.

Ozzie Guillen Ready to Turn to FBI, DEA to Protect Giancarlo Stanton in Marlins Lineup

If you're a Major League Baseball pitcher, you might want to avoid pitching to Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton. Because if you do decide to pitch to the guy who's built like a brick outhouse, very bad things can happen to you. You know, things like this. Or this. And this. The decision to give Stanton anything in the strike zone becomes even more insane when you consider...

White Sox Catcher Throws Ball Backwards
