Wisch: Dunn Deserves His Boos, Fans Deserve Better

Hitting a baseball is hard. I know, because I stunk at it.

White Sox Are ‘Running Out Time’

The White Sox open officially open the second half of their season on Friday, and after the first 92 games of the season, there’s significantly less optimism than there was during spring training.

Carlos Marmol

Teams Would Be ‘Happy To Unload Prospects’ For Marmol

In his last 1.1 innings pitched, Carlos Marmol has given up three hits, five walks and seven earned runs on his way to blowing to saves. And as the trading deadline approaches, he recent struggles may not have much of an impact on his trade value.

Adam Dunn

Cooper: Fans Need To Lay Off Dunn

Adam Dunn’s American League-leading 117 strikeouts equate to 36.3 percent of all of his plate appearances. His .160 batting average is also the worst in the AL, and without knowing those stats you could probably tell he was struggling just from the crowd.

White Sox A ‘Two-Week Streak’ Away From 1st Place?

The White Sox’s 44-48 record through the first 92 games of the season hasn’t necessarily led to optimism among their fans. And to make matters worse, they suffered a 3-1 series loss to the Twins heading into the All-Star break.

How The Cubs ‘Right The Ship’ In 2012

When baseball resumes on Thursday, Cubs fans will have to face the the reality of watching their team, most likely, struggle through the final 70 games of the season. And after that, comes an offseason where they’ll demand significant change.

Christian Lopez and Derek Jeter

Fan Gave Jeter’s 3,000 Ball Back Because It Was ‘The Right Thing’

In the third inning of Sunday’s Yankees-Rays game, Derek Jeter hit a home run. It was the 237th home run of his career. But more importantly, it was the 3,000th hit of his career, and the fan who caught the ball passed up a big pay day to return it.

Marlon Byrd

Byrd: Trades Are ‘Just Part Of The Business’

Over the past few weeks, conversations about the Chicago Cubs have been more about trades and becoming competitive for future than they have been about this season. And that’s not something the team is surprised to see.

Carlos Marmol

Would The Cubs Consider Trading Marmol?

At this point in the season, it’s pretty clear that the Chicago Cubs aren’t going to be competing the NL Central. But, in preparing to compete in the division over the next few season, the team needs to evaluate which players can be traded for prospects.

Still No Spot For Viciedo On White Sox Roster

As the White Sox continue to float around .500, the fans begin to clamor for some sort of change that might spark the team and salvage a season that started with big expectations.

Matt Garza

Gammons: Garza’s Struggles Are ‘A Complete Mystery’

The end result of Thursday night’s Cubs win doesn’t come close to tell the story of the game. While the Cubs won 10-9, they were trailing in the fourth inning by a score of 8-0, and starting pitcher Matt Garza failed to get out of the third inning.

Cooper: ‘We’re In The Hunt’ For Division Title

The Chicago White Sox are two games under .500, but because the rest of the division is struggling as well, they find themselves just four and a half games back of the Cleveland Indians.

Ozzie Guillen and A.J. Pierzynski

White Sox’s Season Will ‘Be Made Or Not Made’ In July

The high expectations the White Sox had coming into this season haven’t been met, that’s no secret at all. But as bad as the team and individual players have been, they can still reach those expectations with good second half.

Chicago Cubs

How Can The Cubs Compete In 2012?

The Chicago Cubs are the not-so-proud owners of the second-worst record in baseball, a miserable 35-52. With this season all but over for the Cubs, the organization has to start thinking about how they can avoid a similar fate in 2012.

Starlin Castro

Stone: Castro ‘Will Grow Into A Third Baseman’

As a 21-year-old shortstop, Starlin Castro is the youngest Chicago Cubs player to ever make an All-Star game. However, there’s a chance that in the future, he’ll make the game as a third baseman.

Mike Quade

Riggleman: ‘I Really Have The Greatest Respect For Mike Quade’

For most Cubs fans, Mike Quade was a relatively unknown minor league manager prior to last season. But while he wasn’t well known to most of the public, those within baseball knew his reputation.

Aramis Ramirez

Cubs Don’t Have A ‘Tremendous Trade Chip’

On Wednesday, Chicago Cubs general manager Jim Hendry went on record saying that despite the team having one of the worst records in baseball, there wouldn’t be a “fire sale.”

Ozzie Guillen

Riggleman: ‘Ozzie Is Great For The Game’

From his post-game rants to his Twitter messages to, well, pretty much everything he does, Ozzie Guillen is one of the polarizing figures in baseball. But whether you like Ozzie or hate him, he adds something to the game that may be missing.

Marlon Byrd

Byrd Could Be Back In Lineup On Saturday Or Sunday

Cubs center fielder Marlon Byrd has been playing for the organization’s Triple-A affiliate this week, trying to get ready to return to the lineup. Byrd was placed on the disabled list in late-March, after being hit in the face with a pitch while the team was in Boston.
