Please, please, please tell me there's a chance the Sox can get rid of Adam Dunn before next year. I can't take another year of watching him strike out. There's a reason that he's never been on a playoff team -- because he's on the team! He may be a...

If Kevin Youkilis leaves via free agency, what are the chances the Sox try Dan Johnson at third? He is patient and does have some pop. -- Kent Kimpel, Plymouth, Ind.

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...

Maybe it’s me, and maybe I’m alone on this one, but sorry, I’m not impressed with the Yankees.
They came to the South Side this week. They brought the best record in the American League. They had hit the most homers. Did all of them...
