Jeff Keppinger walked with the bases loaded to drive in the go-ahead run — his first base on balls in 141 plate appearances this season — and the Chicago White Sox rallied with three runs in the eighth to beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-4 on Thursday night for their season-high third straight road win.
The White Sox are becoming an afterthought.
The Chicago White Sox needed a big start from ace Chris Sale, and he nearly gave them something historic.
The easy thing is to look at the Chicago White Sox and write them off as a lost cause.
After one month this season, believe it or not, Dunn is on pace for a worse season than 2011, except in the power numbers.
The White Sox supposedly have a progressive statistical GM with a manager willing to embrace a numbers-driven era. An organization with those in charge on the same page. The manager is willing, right?
I love baseball. My affair with the game goes back over 50 years when I was child emulating longtime broadcaster Jack Brickhouse on the gravel field of Hibbard Elementary School in Albany Park.
No player on the White Sox roster entered this season with more doubters than Flowers, the 27-year-old catcher who sat behind A.J. Pierzynski on the depth chart for the last five seasons.
When Louisville’s Kevin Ware tragically broke his leg during Saturday’s Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament, White Sox manager Robin Ventura knew exactly what was going through the sophomore’s mind.
Monday’s 1-0 win over the Kansas City Royals was Konerko’s 16th career Opening Day and 15th straight with the White Sox.
Ventura won’t be making any bold proclamations this season, but there does seem to more urgency in Year 2. The expectations are clearly defined.
After spending five days at spring training in Arizona, Adam Hoge presents his final verdict for the White Sox in 2013.
While manager Robin Ventura refuses to officially name him the Opening Day starter, Chris Sale continues to prove he’s the White Sox’s ace.
Dayan Viciedo will likely hit behind Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko in Robin Ventura’s lineup – a middle of the order that could combine for 100 dingers under the right circumstances.
The news that Robin Ventura had turned down a one-year contract extension really didn’t surprise insiders.
It’s the city of Love (Bob) and the city of Roses (Derrick & Family). It’s the city of heart taps (Sammy’s) and the city of kisses (Sammy’s … again). It’s the city of passions (ever seen Cubs fans?) and the city of swoons (ever seen the Cubs?).
After one full season as manager, Robin Ventura has turned down a one-year contract extension from the White Sox.
When it comes time to blaming someone for a team’s lack of success, guess who takes most of the heat? The head coach or manager.
Days after he was minted as the new White Sox general manager, Rick Hahn pulled a move that shocked most of the baseball world – he re-signed starting pitcher Jake Peavy before the right-hander hit free agency.
Maybe the Mayans weren’t referring to the world when they predicted destruction in the year 2012 – maybe they were simply foreseeing the demise of the Chicago sports landscape.
