The Winter Leagues continue to wrap things up….
Tigres de Aragua 3, Tiburones de La Guaira 1
1B Hector Gimenez had another big day, going 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI, to lead Los Tigres to the win. That gives them the win of the championship series, and takes them to the Caribbean Series, which begins on Feb 2nd. Los Tigres scored in just one inning, the 3rd, when RF Jorge Cortes led off with a single and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt. A hit batter and a single by Gimenez drove in the first run. Another run came on another RBI single, and Gimenez scored on a sacrifice fly. Gimenez also singled to lead off the 2nd, and doubled to begin the 5th, but did not score in either of those innings. Romulo Sanchez pitched 2 scoreless innings for Los Tigres with 2 walks, and Wil Ledezma pitched a 1-2-3 inning in the 8th. Los Tiburones scored their only run in the 9th, after two outs had been recorded. Two singles, and two walks forced in their run.
BEST OF MAXIM
Adam Dunn's first season with the Chicago White Sox was one he'd love to forget. He knows that's not going to happen because everyone wants to know what went wrong.
Why did a slugger 35 homers shy of 400 for his career go through one of the most miserable seasons in baseball history with a .159 average, only 11 homers and a team-record 177 strikeouts?
Dunn said Saturday...
Jim Thome reportedly has a handshake agreement in place with the Chicago White Sox to work within the organization once he retires from playing.
There is no doubt that a dominating closer is an invaluable asset to a team. When opponents hear “Enter Sandman” at Yankee Stadium, they know that they’re going to have to get through veteran closer Mariano Rivera (which is no easy task) in order to avoid a loss. Similarly, Los Angeles Dodgers’ closer Eric Gagne saved 84 games in a row, which I’m sure didn’t do very...
Philip Humber is intent on following his breakout 2011 season on Chicago's South Side with an even better performance this season. Despite being annointed the club's fifth starter, the right-hander is not taking anything for granted.
CHICAGO (AP) -- Adam Dunn used the first week of his offseason to chill out and get a much needed break from the misery he endured in his first year with the Chicago White Sox.
In an interview with Comcast SportsNet, White Sox chairman said that Thome basically has a job waiting for him with the organization when he retires.
"When he left here to go to the Twins (in 2010), we kind of shook hands and agreed that, whenever his career is over, he’ll come back to the White Sox in some capacity," Reinsdorf said. "He did say that he wants to...
The uncertainty regarding Chris Sale's move to the 2012 White Sox starting rotation has nothing to do with his ability to handle -- or quite possibly excel -- with the change.
Adam Dunn appeared much leaner as he spoke optimistically of the Chicago White Sox's chances in 2012, pending a return to form by him and Alex Rios.
Any doubts about Addison Reed breaking camp with the 2012 White Sox were pretty much put to rest by pitching coach Don Cooper on Saturday at SoxFest.
White Sox general manager Ken Williams is still feeling his son's pain.
Viciedo, Sale, Morel, Flowers will get opportunity to prove themselvesViciedo, Sale, Morel, Flowers will get opportunity.
In his session with the media before the start of SoxFest Friday at the Palmer House, new White Sox manager Robin Ventura was self-deprecating to a fault, well aware he has big shoes to fill as a media personality in replacing Ozzie Guillen.
"I was just as big a fan as anybody of his press conferences.…

New bench coach Mark Parent is determined to get the White Sox away from their typical station-to-station approach on the basepaths as well as help limit the opposition's ability to run wild.
Looking in on Pirates’ players and friends in Saturday’s winter league playoff games:

Los Leones again took the lead in this best-of-9 series, with this win over Los Aguilas. Los Leones now lead 4 games to 3, and need one more win to take the championship. Los Aguilas were first onto the scoreboard with 2...
