  • Hammel pitching like an All-Star; talking like a team player

    Hammel pitching like an All-Star; talking like a team player
    One of the big discussions in the press box before Friday’s game was whether Jason Hammel will be an All-Star. Not whether he is worthy – he has been the Orioles’ best starter this season – but whether he’ll be named to...
  • Finally, Wood gets a win as a Cub

    Finally, Wood gets a win as a Cub
    Cubs starting pitcher Travis Wood wants home plate umpire C.B. Bucknor to know there’s an inside corner. But the shoelaces were a strike? No matter. Showing great savvy in adjusting to Bucknor’s sometimes incomprehensible strike zone...
  • Wicked slider wasn't even in Humber's arsenal early last year

    Wicked slider wasn't even in Humber's arsenal early last year
    That pitch that got away from A.J. Pierzynski to end Phil Humber's perfect game Saturday? The same pitch that Michael Saunders and John Jaso couldn't lay off earlier in the ninth? Those were sliders, wicked, wicked sliders. "Hard, sharp and quick," said...
  • Mark Gonzales' White Sox mailbag

    Mark Gonzales' White Sox mailbag
    Robin Ventura? I guess this means "All in" is now "Everybody out of the Pool!" The only way this works is if Ventura gets to grow as they let the kids play as KW was quoted as saying recently. Otherwise, if they get a bench coach with managerial...
  • Power rankings: No. 27 Padres

    Power rankings: No. 27 Padres
    It's all about Luke Gregerson. Says a lot, doesn't it? Over the last two seasons, the best thing about the Padres has been their bullpen. It carried Bud Black's team to the threshold of the playoffs in 2010 and was the backbone of a bad team last year as...
  • If Hendry stays, so could Pena

     
    Breaking News:   Doug Davis and Rodrigo Lopez are mediocre starting pitchers.   Who saw that coming? Sarcasm aside, I think it's safe to say that after the San Francisco Giants swept Tuesday's doubleheader and pushed the Cubs to 12.0 games back, it's time...
  • Trade inactivity should seal Jim Hendry’s fate

     
    The MLB Trade Deadline has officially passed and Jim Hendry and the Chicago Cubs only managed to make one move by trading Kosuke Fukudome.  The relative inactivity will most likely (and hopefully) be the end of Jim Hendry as we know him.  Fans were...
  • Vizquel, Flowers in for Sox, Dunn out for funeral

    Vizquel, Flowers in for Sox, Dunn out for funeral
    Omar Vizquel starts at second base and bats second and Tyler Flowers replaces A.J. Pierzynski at catcher for the White Sox as they face the Royals Saturday night, weather permitting. Vizquel starts for the slumping Gordon Beckham, who has only three hits...
  • Sighting: Jenna Dewan, Jeremy Piven, Clyde Drexler at Paris Club

    Sighting: Jenna Dewan, Jeremy Piven, Clyde Drexler at Paris Club
    "The Playboy Club" actress Jenna Dewan hit Paris Club Friday with friends, including co-star David Krumholtz. Dewan and co-star Laura Benanti had dinner, separately, at Sunda Saturday. "Entourage" star Jeremy Piven hit Paris Club and Sunda Thursday....
  • Missed opportunities doom Mariners in loss

    Missed opportunities doom Mariners in loss
    Safeco Field finally got the best of Charlie Furbush. The rookie southpaw sported a 2-0 record and 2.08 ERA in the Emerald City this season, but surrendered four runs in five innings of work as the Mariners fell, 4-2, to the White Sox on Friday night...
  • Ozzie just wants cash, Kenny just wants silence, Sox fans should want smarter decisions

    The Ozzie Guillen-Kenny Williams relationship is irretrievably broken. Again. This is a recording. This is another recording. But there's a problem with this regularly scheduled noise that is local baseball's version of elementary school concerts that...
