Red Sox Down White Sox To End Whacky 14-Inning Affair ☆

Is saying “This one was more of the same for the White Sox” taking the easy way out if it couldn’t be any more truthful? For the third time in three starts, John Danks looked like the John Danks of old. His sub-90 fastballs got him in some trouble in the first inning, serving up well-hit base knocks to Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz. Besides that, he jammed the other hitters...

Danks, Abreu Help Sox Defeat Tribe to Open Series ☆

No, that title is not a typo. The Sox actually beat the Cleveland Indians tonight. With a 7-3 victory over the Tribe, the White Sox now have half as many wins against Cleveland as they did all last season. If you do the simple math, you could figure out that the Sox went 2-17 against the Tribe last season. Yes, it was that bad. But if we’ve learned anything about this team in this...

The White Sox dropped their third straight contest on Saturday afternoon when the Kansas City Royals handed them a 4-3 loss. The south siders are now 2-3, and though this losing streak has been frustrating, there have certainly been positives during it.

The Return of Vintage John Danks?

John Danks said he is starting to feel like his old self. Hopefully that means Chicago White Sox fans are going to see the pre-2011 Danks, who was solid from 2008-2010; earning double digit wins with an ERA under four. His first Spring Training start came last week in which he was sharp, and although it’s a long way to go, it is indeed a good start. His velocity is and never will...

Chicago White Sox: Time for a pitching change

Remember last week when the Chicago White Sox organization said that John Danks would be in rehab soon and possibly returning? Well it isn’t looking like that is going to happen anytime soon. The injured Sox pitcher threw 61 pitches in a rehab start down in Charlotte and things were looking up. However, a couple days later, Danks experienced major shoulder pain and team doctors...

Could Danks be the Yankees Number 2?

It seems pretty clearly that Yu Darvish is not going to be a Yankee. So as it stands now, the 2012 Yankees pretty much look exactly the same as the 97 win 2011 team that got bounced out of ALDS. Names have floated but nothing has gotten serious. Felix Hernandez and Gio Gonzalez would be the best choices for the Yanks but the asking price is way too high, pretty much cleaning out...
