Chris Sale was peak Chris Sale last night.
Chris Sale was peak Chris Sale last night.
As eventually doomed runs of Idiots On The Field go, these dudes’ miracle jaunt all the way across the outfield, through stadium security, and into the bleachers was pretty damn spectacular.
The White Sox got themselves a new stadium naming-rights deal, and it’s a laugher. Starting next season, U.S. Cellular Field, formerly the second Comiskey Park, will go by: Guaranteed Rate Field. Yes it will.
Darren Rovell—a living, breathing blazer from Northwestern’s business school—is fond of tweeting out pictures. Sometimes, it’s a cake that’s shaped like a shoe, and usually it’s a piece of truly fucked up junk food from a stadium. Tonight, he posted a very well-composed picture of the Chicago White Sox’s stadium, and…
Last night, Adam Eaton hit a ninth-inning grand slam to send the White Sox home with a 10-7 win over the Indians. And he did it while blowing a bubble, which seems a little dangerous but adds unexpected flair to baseball’s most magical outcome.
After the game, Eaton told reporters he “was so flustered about my swing…
Chris Sale, last seen cutting up White Sox throwbacks with scissors in the clubhouse, broke his silence today, and the pitcher does not appear happy with Robin Ventura. In an interview with MLB.com’s Scott Merkin, Sale laid out the entire timeline of events that led to him defacing the jerseys, talked about not…
The White Sox announced today Chris Sale is suspended five days for his outburst yesterday that reportedly included the All-Star pitcher destroying throwback uniforms he didn’t want to wear.
Chris Sale was scheduled to start tonight’s game against the Detroit Tigers, but the Chicago White Sox scratched the lefty at the last minute. The team said in a statement that Sale was removed because of an incident in the clubhouse that was “non-physical in nature.”
This month marks the 37th anniversary of the Disco Demolition riots, which took place at Chicago’s Comiskey Park in 1979. The White Sox and a local radio station put together one of the most ill-conceived, successful promotions in sports history, wherein they sold tickets to a doubleheader against the Tigers for…
It was a pleasant enough day in New York City today, so the Mets and White Sox decided to play a few extra innings this afternoon. The White Sox eventually won, 2-1, in the 13th thanks to the heroics on both sides of the ball of relief pitcher Matt Albers.
Chris Sale didn’t pitch today against the Mets, but he did have time for a little pregame rock-paper-scissors with an autograph-seeking Mets fan. My man lost, like the White Sox have in his last two starts, and he graciously signed the autograph.
Not often you see a dude round first and get mobbed under a pig-pile of teammates in the Majors, even when that’s a walk-off single. But there was Brett Eibner at the bottom of a heap of blue laundry in Kansas City this afternoon, after he capped the biggest ninth-inning comeback in the Royals’ 7,596-game history.
Ten years ago today, the fifth-place Chicago Cubs played the first-place Chicago White Sox, lost 7-0, and gave us one of the most purely satisfying moments in baseball history, when catcher Michael Barrett responded to A.J. Pierzynski running right over him at home plate even though he didn’t even have the ball by…
Sometimes when you dive into the stands, you come up with the catch of the season, and sometimes, you get soda all over yourself and smash your face up.
I like bullpen catchers. They all look like jovial dads who would be happy to help you with your math homework before heading out to the backyard to have a catch. They never get any camera time, so it’s nice to see one shine when he gets the chance:
White Sox ace Chris Sale has gotten off to a great start this season, having allowed just nine runs in his first 43.1 innings. His strikeout rate has been a bit lower than usual—just 7.9 per nine innings compared to last year’s absurd 11.8 per nine—but he’s still my favorite punch-out artist in the game. That’s…
White Sox setup man Matt Albers is on a hell of a hot streak, pitching a scoreless eighth in last night’s win over Toronto to set the franchise record for scoreless outings. Dating back to Aug. 4, 2015, Albers has appeared 30 times, thrown 33 innings, and allowed just 24 hits and seven walks while striking out 24.
Triple plays are generally credited to the defense, but as we’ve seen more often than not they’re created by piss-poor base running. So here’s an example of the Texas Rangers shitting up the basepaths as they manage to get themselves into a 9-3-2-6-2-5 triple play at the hands of the White Sox tonight.
White Sox play-by-play man Hawk Harrelson, also known as Darkest Timeline Vin Scully, had a little trouble tracking this home run ball during last night’s game between the White Sox and A’s:
