Adam Eaton Sends Big Papi Clapping His Way To The Dugout

Chicago White Sox Baseball — It’s becoming an every night thing for Adam Eaton to make the highlight reel, but his catch against the Boston Red Sox might be his best one yet. In the first inning of the Chris Sale and Jon Lester showdown, Eaton makes a ridiculous catch to rob David Ortiz. The White Sox went on to lose the game 3-1 but it certainly wasn’t Sale or the defense...

White Sox DFA Veal, Promote Putnam ☆

In an exciting yet understandable move, the White Sox designated lefty reliever Donnie Veal for assignment and purchased the contract of righty Zach Putnam from AAA Charlotte. The move is surprising because it leaves veteran Scott Downs as the only southpaw currently in the team’s bullpen. Downs, who’s been about as reliable as they come over the past decade, hasn’t been able...

White Sox Designate Donnie Veal For Assignment

The White Sox have designated southpaw Donnie Veal for assignment, tweets MLB.com's Scott Merkin. Zach Putnam had his contract purchased to join the big club, which used every one of its relievers in last night's ballgame. After a strong (albeit brief) 2012 campaign in which he posted a 1.38 ERA in 13 innings, Veal has struggled to repeat his success. In 35 1/3 innings since...

When Will Daniel Webb Be Closing?

Chicago White Sox Baseball — Matt Lindstrom is the current Chicago White Sox closer and through 14 games, he has looked far from it. Daniel Webb who has been solid in five appearances, looks confident and showed it again last night. In a tie ball game with runners on 2nd and 3rd, Webb was asked to get the final out.

Ouch. Boston Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is considered day-to-day after dislocating his finger during the team’s 2-1 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.

Emotional Tuesday Night at the Cell for White Sox, Red Sox

In Tuesday’s White Sox Red Sox game, there was a clear nod of respect to the past. Ex-White Sox players A.J. Pierzynski and Jake Peavy returned to the South Side of Chicago, every player was wearing the number 42 in honor of Jackie Robinson, and it marked that one year had passed since the deadly Boston Marathon bombings. If you remember, last year, the day after the bombings,...

Is Chris Sale the best pitcher in the American League?

Clayton Kershaw is the best pitcher in baseball, and by definition, that makes him also the best pitcher in the National League. In the American League, though, things are not quite as clear. The AL is home to a handful of truly excellent pitchers, and differentiating between them is the ultimate in picking nits. The […]
