  • Betting on Jake Peavy

    Everybody loves a swashbuckler, especially when he has a Cy Young Award in his trophy case. General manager Ken Williams fell for Jake Peavy in 2009, and the trade that brought him to Chicago proved a poor return on investment, both for Chairman Jerry...

    Mount St. Joseph coach retires after 30 years
    Saturday's Alumni Game at Mount St. Joseph marked the celebration of the school's rich baseball heritage. It also marked the end of an era. Before a crowd of supporters and former players, Gaels coach Dave Norton officially announced his retirement...
  • White Sox should let Rios walk away

    White Sox should let Rios walk away
    The Rangers reportedly have claimed Alex Rios on waivers, and if it was my decision they would have him on their roster at some point this weekend. Because these are revocable waivers, the White Sox can hang on to Rios if they don't get an offer for him...
  • Another second basemen for Rollins? No problem

    PHILADELPHIA — Playing a few innings during a Grapefruit League game with prospective, big-league second basemen would be helpful. Some infield during pregame would even suffice. Jimmy Rollins had neither with rookie Cesar Hernandez when he headed...
  • Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' White Sox mailbag

    Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' White Sox mailbag
    We have lost five games that Gavin Floyd has started. I continue to notice that our pitchers cannot go more than six innings.  If this is the case, manager Robin Ventura better start using his relievers at least two innings before switching to matchups....
  • Sox must make tough calls on veteran pitchers

    Sox must make tough calls on veteran pitchers
    The bad news has come in for Gavin Floyd, just like it did for John Danks last August. Floyd will have season-ending elbow surgery Tuesday, meaning the White Sox will get no more return on the $9.5 million they’ll pay Floyd this season, just as...
  • Orioles notes and observations (road trip, Hammel, Clark, Gavin Floyd)

    Orioles notes and observations (road trip, Hammel, Clark, Gavin Floyd)
    I was asked before the Orioles left for their 11-game, three-city swing out west what would constitute a successful trip. I said 6-5. Luckily I wasn’t asked to amend it after the Orioles won three of four in Oakland. They ended up 7-4. And that...
  • Your Morning Phil: Hahn, Peavy, Wood

    Your Morning Phil: Hahn, Peavy, Wood
    Talking baseball while praising Kirk Hinrich’s grit: 1. There are lots of good deals on Chicago condos. A forward-thinking baseball organization might buy, not merely rent hotel space, this summer. Scouts will be camping out on both sides of...
  • What the Phillies have done, and hope to do, in the draft

     
    After a 2010 draft class in which the Phillies took pitchers with four of their first five picks, they changed their focus last year (they took four position players) and will continue along that path this year. “Honestly, we’d like......
  • Position analysis: Bullpen could look different

    Position analysis: Bullpen could look different
    The White Sox were extremely pleased with the development of their pitching staff in 2012, particularly the rookie relievers who experienced the pressure of a division race. In fact, general manager Ken Williams resisted any temptation to trade any of...
  • For starters, Hahn off to a good start

    For starters, Hahn off to a good start
    Rick Hahn, executive of the year. OK, maybe not yet, but the new Chicago White Sox general manager is off to a great start. Signing Jake Peavy for only two years and a option at the going rate for a top-of-the-rotation pitcher is a great deal for...
