The news on the field Friday wasn't great for the Chicago White Sox, who lost 8-3 at home in an interleague game against the Houston Astros. The news off the field on the injury front was worse, with manager Robin Ventura admitting that there is something more going on with Brent Morel and his back issues, as Morel pulled himself out of Thursday's game with Class AAA Charlotte...
3rd base sucks. My apologies to MC Serch and Prime Minister Pete Nice, but it ain’t about y’all! It’s 3rd base for fantasy baseball.
