The White Sox are no longer a cute little story, and that’s a good thing.
Chris Sale isn’t on a specific innings count, but it’s becoming obvious the left-hander needs to limit his innings right now if he’s going to be counted on in September.
White Sox fans can be excused for an initially negative reaction to hearing that the Twins’ Francisco Liriano had been acquired late last night for utility man Eduardo Escobar and minor-league starter Pedro Hernandez.
Matt Thornton was a disaster, well before Addison Reed finally arrived to allow the final blast. Thornton’s pitch selection was odd, and he’s been mediocre all season long.
He may be half way across the country, but former White Sox ace Mark Buehrle understands just how special Chris Sale is.
Chris Sale won his eighth straight decision, Adam Dunn homered in his third straight game and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 2-1 Sunday.
As of July 10, it looks like I was wrong. My prediction was on the high end of what everyone else was predicting and yet, it wasn’t high enough.

The White Sox are a first place team, but is it really smart for them to go for it all this season? That’s a major question we ponder in this week’s mailbag.
Chris Sale pitched eight shutout innings to earn his fifth straight win and Adam Dunn had a grand slam and five RBIs Saturday to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 10-1 victory over the Houston Astros.
Ventura joined The McNeil and Spiegel Show on Friday to discuss the confusion regarding Chris Sale.
There’s no reason to think Robin Ventura’s White Sox can’t keep things interesting. On the other hand, there’s no reason to believe Sox fans aren’t sitting on a heaping pile of fools’ gold.
Sale shouldn’t be allowed to go out every fifth game and pitch 7-plus innings every time he ventures to the mound the rest of the season. He is too valuable a prospect and he is still developing.
Monday night was all about fun for the White Sox, as various players and coaches took to the hardwood, bowling for charity at the Third Annual Celebrity Bowling Classic. The “fun” however, carries over to the field and has been a main reason the Sox are in 1st place.
