    Pitching deals mean White Sox mean business: The future is now
    No better way for the White Sox to mark the 10-year anniversary of winning the World Series than celebrating another one in 2015. Admittedly, that sounds outrageous to suggest for a team 16 games below .500 last year, but it accurately depicts the...
  • White Sox go for broke in wild night

    White Sox go for broke in wild night
    Everything you thought you knew about the White Sox changed overnight. A team building for the long-term traded for a starter on a rental. A team that grooms its own closers signed the best available veteran closer to a four-year deal. Just like that,...

    Red Sox trade Yoenis Cespedes to Tigers for Rick Porcello
    The Dodgers weren't the only team dealing Thursday morning. The Boston Red Sox have agreed to send power-hitting outfielder Yoenis Cespedes to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for pitcher Rick Porcello, a person familiar with the negotiations told the...
  • Is $46 million for a closer a smart move for White Sox?

    I love the idea that the White Sox are going for it in 2015. I just don’t get everything they’re doing. I get the idea of trading for Jeff Samardzija. That was the big win Tuesday, which almost matches the team’s win total from...

    Royals whomp Giants 10-0 to force World Series Game 7
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Mike Moustakas smoked a double inside the right-field line, opening the flood gates. Nori Aoki slapped a single through the left side, Lorenzo Cain dropped a bloop single into center and Eric Hosmer bounced a double over a drawn-in...

    White Sox's Rick Hahn, Cubs' Jed Hoyer receive high marks

  • Adam LaRoche fills big hole in the White Sox lineup and in the clubhouse

    Adam LaRoche fills big hole in the White Sox lineup and in the clubhouse
    When the White Sox traded Adam Dunn to the A's last August, nobody worried about missing Dunn's strikeouts or his Mendoza Line batting average. Nobody wondered how the Sox would survive without Dunn, despite his knack for occasionally hitting the ball...
  • Together since 2008, Adam Jones and Nick Markakis lead Orioles into playoffs

    Together since 2008, Adam Jones and Nick Markakis lead Orioles into playoffs
    Orioles center fielder Adam Jones glides through the home clubhouse in a T-shirt and basketball shorts, razzing everyone he passes with a bellowing voice and an even louder cackle. On the other side of the room is right fielder Nick Markakis, sitting...
  • Why Chicago should root for the Royals

    Why Chicago should root for the Royals
