No errors and solid defense, Adam Dunn and Conor Gillaspie hit home runs, Gordon Beckham had three hits, John Danks pitched into the eighth, and the White Sox topped the hot Baltimore Orioles (47-37) with a 5-2 victory Tuesd ...

Danks May Begin Season On DL

John Danks may begin the 2013 season on the disabled list as his velocity is in the low 80's and he has not impressed in his three Spring Training appearances. According to HardBall Talk's DJ Short Don Cooper said: "John is aware if he’s ready he’s going to be with us, if he’s not, we’ll give him more time.

Looking Towards 2013: The Starting Rotation

For most of the 2012 season, starting pitching was one of the strengths of this White Sox team. Chris Sale emerged into an ace, Jake Peavy stayed healthy the whole season, and Jose Quintana came out of nowhere to have a stretch of two months that were as good as any rookie pitcher in the game.

Kenny Williams Does It Again

In a matter of just two days, Kenny Williams made three moves that have made the White Sox significantly better for 2011 than what we would have expected at the conclusion of 2010.  First was the signing of Adam Dunn, next was the trade of Scott Linebrink, and finally was the re-signing of A.J. Pierzysnki. Let's start with the Dunn move.  On Thursday the White Sox and Adam Dunn agreed in principle to a 4 ye ...

Just Don’t Get Swept

Game 1, not so good for the White Sox.  But games 2 and 3 can go a long way to erase the debacle of tonight. But in order for the Sox to turn this series around, someone is going to have to step up.  Coming off the atrocious showing in Baltimore in which the South Siders dropped 3 games out of 4 to the worst team in baseball, game 1 of 3 in Minnesota is not what the Sox were hoping for.  However, the pitchi ...
