What’s Next For The White Sox

As the White Sox find themselves 10.5 back of the Division lead and 8.5 back in the Wild Card race, is it too early to assume that the season is over? Should the Sox already be planning for next season? Maybe so. The Sox had a good plan going into this season, and many were optimistic. They added Adam Eaton from Arizona, inked up their ace Chris Sale, and added a big bat from Cuba...

A loss tonight would effectively end the Yankees' quest for the 2014 AL East

We would be eight games behind with about 40 to go.We could also fall four games out of the wild card, and - more concerning - be behind three teams in the race.As horrible as 2013 was, this year's team could fall out of meaningful contention in the month of August. Last year, the Yankees toyed with hope until the last week of the season.Are we still thinking of trading prospects...

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...

Danks’ Contract Bearable Until the Price is Right

Despite interest from the Marlins and Yankees (and possibly others), the White Sox were unable to unload lefty John Danks prior to Thursday’s non-waiver trade deadline. It seems most conceivable that neither team was willing to bite the bullet on the $28.5 million owed to Danks over the next two seasons, though his consistency and veteran presence do seem to be coveted. Although...

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...

MLB players who still might be traded in August

The MLB non-waiver trade deadline was the busiest in recent history with David Price and Jon Lester, among others, calling new cities home for the stretch run. Is this an indication that there could very well be more activity around the trade market as teams start to really assess where they are?  Unlike the July 31st deadline, trades that are made in the month of August are based...

August Could be Very Benificial to the Cubs

The Chicago Cubs might be the team to watch in the month of August, but not for anything they do on the field. Let’s be honest, any chance of competing for a playoff spot disappeared a long time ago; probably before the season even began. I am not sure that even the most optimistic fan out there can realistically think that this team can still make a playoff push in 2014. That...

White Sox win 7-4 as Tigers complete big trade

As the White Sox loaded the bases in the seventh inning Thursday at Comerica Park, the Tigers had bigger things brewing off the field.

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...

The New York Yankees are interested in left handed pitcher John Danks but are hesitant to pull the trigger on a trade for the 29-year-old due to the $28.5 million owed to him over the next two seasons.

Yanks and White Sox talking about Danks, but gap still exists

The Yankees and White Sox are still discussing John Danks as a trade possibility, but the latest word is the sides were still apart in terms of the package New York would send back. Danks, who is 9-6 with a 4.40 ERA, is a lefty the Yankees would like to have, but with two years to go on his $65-million, five-year contract, his trade value may be somewhat limited.

Danks remains a Yankee option in tough starters market for them

The Yankees are still looking at White Sox left-hander John Danks as a trade possibility in what appears to be a diminishing starters market for them. Danks may be among the most likely rotation candidates for the Yankees, if not the most likely, as there's no evidence they're even talking to the Padres about Ian Kennedy. And several other available pitchers aren't possibilities...
