Party time, Kansas City style! Royals in postseason for first time since '85

CHICAGO -- Let the party begin, Royals fans! The Royals, once a late-night punch line for comics on national TV, are going to the postseason for the first time since 1985, thus ending the longest playoff-absence of any major professional team in North America. The Royals did this with a 3-1 triumph over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night behind strong starting pitching from Jeremy...

One win is all the Royals need for a seat at the postseason table

When the Kansas City Royals won the 1985 World Series, it marked the peak achievement for a franchise that had experienced sustained success and regular postseason appearances over a nine-year period. The last thing Royals fans could've imagined was having to wait 29 years for the club to play meaningful October baseball again. With Kansas City on the verge of ending that postseason...

The Daily Grind: Chicago’s Guide to Handicapping Baseball (9/2/14)

We’re down to the last month of the regular season. It seems almost every year a team gets hot around this time of year to propel them into the playoffs. On the flip side, a team usually tanks as well. For me, a key to a profitable September in MLB is identifying those teams before the odds makers do. With expanded rosters in play, it creates more unknown and increases the probability...

White Sox-Twins Preview

Fighting through another disappointing season, the Chicago White Sox have had a bit of a fire sale lately while shipping veterans to contenders and clearing some payroll. There have been some bright spots such as the improvement of Hector Noesi, who takes the mound Tuesday night in the opener of a two-game road series with the last-place Minnesota Twins. The White Sox (62-75) had...

The Daily Grind: Chicago’s Guide to Handicapping MLB ( 8/20/14)

What a fiasco last night at Wrigley Field.  The grounds crew had some problems with the tarp, which in turn led to the game being called final after 4.5 innings.  This caused our under play to be voided and our Giants play to lose.  Tough loss to swallow on the north side last night.  On the south side, Baltimore finally got to Quintana in the 6th and again the Sox only scored...

O’s Fly Into Town for Three Game Set

The White Sox brief homestand continues this week with a three game set against the first place Orioles.

By comparison, last year the White Sox won their 59th game on September 16th. The Orioles come in with a record...

White Sox, Buehrle return to the Cell This Weekend

The White Sox return home this weekend to start a six game homestand, starting with a three game set against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Sox went 2-4 on their west coast road trip and are now 57-64 on the year. The Sox are still above .500 (barely) at home at 29-28 but are just 3-7 in their last 10 home games. The Blue Jays come in at 63-59, in second place in the AL East and 3.5...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Aug 15

Yesterday’s late-game lineup was constructed from an extremely small set of six games. It scored 124.50 points and finished in the 82nd percentile of all Moonshot entries. Originally I thought it was going to be a big day as Adam LaRoche, Bryce Harper, and Jhonny Peralta all homered in their first at-bats, but after combining for 48 points in those three at-bats the trio contributed...

After opening an eight-game trip with three losses, the Blue Jays look to bounce back Friday night in the opener of a weekend series against the Chicago White Sox. Toronto...

White Sox Head to Seattle to Kick Off West Coat Trip

The White Sox hit the road for a six game west coast trip after a very disappointing 2-4 homestand. The trip starts with a four game series in Seattle against the Mariners.  The Sox are now back to five games below .500 at 55-60, in fourth place in the AL Central.  They are 26-32 on the road but were 5-2 on their last road trip, so that was encouraging. The Mariners come in at...

Last Place Rangers Take the Rubber Match As Offense Leaves Sale Hanging

On Sunday, the White Sox began a three-game series at home against the Major League-worst Texas Rangers. The series looked promising at first, as Rangers’ ace Yu Darvish would be on the bench for all three games after another strong outing on Saturday (7 IP, 4 H, 2 BB, 8 K). With Hector Noesi, John Danks, and Chris Sale scheduled to pitch, the White Sox were in prime position to...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, August 5

Yesterday was a good showing for me on DraftKings. I entered three lineups, all of which placed. In my Official Lineup, which was actually the lowest scoring of the three, Corey Kluber dominated and Kevin Gausman rebounded after a slow start to contribute a decent point total. I correctly pegged my Indians stack with both Yan Gomes and Lonnie Chisenhall homering and Michael Brantley...

After Ugly Weekend Series, White Sox Set To Host Baseball’s Worst

The White Sox conclude their short homestand with a three game series against the Texas Rangers.  The Sox dropped two of three to the Twins in the first series thanks to some truly blowful pitching by their bullpen.  The Sox are now 54-58 on the season and 28-26 at home and despite the bad series against Minnesota, have still won six of their last ten. The Rangers come in with...

Sox in Enemy Territory – Games 2 and 3

The White Sox took to the field for game two of the series with high hopes after winning game one. Hector Noesi against Max Scherzer was going to be a real pitchers duel. Noesi has been building on some great outings and this one would need to be one of his best for the Sox to have a chance. An hour’s rain delay would be the hiccup that the Sox did not need. the bottom of the first...

DETROIT -- The Tigers' offense didn't wake up for long Wednesday night, but it did plenty of damage before hitting the snooze button again in a 7-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox. After a feeble weekend performance in Anaheim and a 11-4 loss to the White Sox on Tuesday night at Comerica Park, things didn't get much better when Austin Jackson struck out on eight pitches to start...
