Holmes’ Morning After Blog: Pena, Zambrano Star In Game 1

The White Sox really missed an opportunity to pile on Carlos Zambrano. It’s been a trend for the Sox lately that they’re falling behind with first pitch fastballs.

Danks: Sox-Cubs Rivalry ‘A Little Blown Out Of Proportion’

Through the first 79 games of the White Sox-Cubs interleague series, only three wins separate the two teams, White Sox have won 41 and the Cubs have won 38. As close as the series has been, it seems as if it’s lost some intensity.

Ozzie Guillen

Crain: ‘I Have Nothing But Respect’ For Ozzie

It’s a safe bet to say that, at times, Ozzie Guillen can be a distraction for a team. Whether it’s Twitter messages from him son or calling the Minnesota Twins “a bunch of midgets,” there’s rarely a dull moment. But he also has the unwavering loyalty of his players.
