OAKLAND, Calif. — After completing a 6-3 West Coast trip Sunday with a harrowing 4-3 win over the Athletics, manager Ozzie Guillen made a request for the White Sox.
"Go home and play better for our fans," he said. "They deserve that. We owe them...

Mark Teahen took batting practice Monday and White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said that the team “might have to wait” until Tuesday to see if he should be put on the disabled list with a strained oblique muscle.
Teahen strained his right...

Dunn has struck out 53 times in 138 at-bats. And while Dunn had a grounder against Scott Elbert that produced a run in the...

Just be the big, lovable guilty pleasure you’ve always been, and the misery that has been your 2011 season will...

Thanks for the offer, Jake. Now shut up and make a rehab start in the minors.
Jake Peavy told White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper he would pitch out of the bullpen. Heck, Peavy told anybody and everybody he would pitch out of the bullpen.

Rodriguez in bad spot
Down goes Bob Geren! Who will follow him out the door?
It's possible that there will be no other midseason firings, as an overall period of stability should follow the rash of changes in 2010. But...
