Chris Sale Does Not Have Bones In His Body, Defies Physics

Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale is, on a per-inning basis, currently pitching more or less the way Sandy Koufax did in his prime. (His park- and league-adjusted ERA-plus of 195 is actually a little better than Koufax's best-ever mark, though yes of course Koufax pitched a hell of a lot more innings, you don't need to… » 9/15/14 2:37pm 9/15/14 2:37pm

Adam Dunn Pitched In A Game Tuesday Night

If there is a silver lining to a 15-0 game, it's the possibility that you might see something absurd, like watching a bear-man with 457 career home runs pitch in the ninth inning. Adam Dunn was called in to pitch the final inning for the White Sox tonight in a Rangers blowout. In one inning of work, Dunn allowed one… » 8/06/14 12:49am 8/06/14 12:49am

Here's Frank Thomas's Emotional HOF Induction Speech

On the other end of the Hall-of-Fame-Speech spectrum, Frank Thomas gave a pretty touching speech today at the Hall of Fame and spent almost the entire time either crying or fighting off the tears.

José Abreu Is The Game's Best Old-Fashioned Slugger

José Abreu had himself a damn weekend. On Friday night, he clubbed two home runs—including a walk-off grand slam that nearly led to old bastard Hawk Harrelson having an on-air joy-aneurysm—and drove in six runs against the Tampa Bay Rays. On Sunday, he came away with two more hits and four more RBI, two of them by way… » 4/28/14 2:08pm 4/28/14 2:08pm

Hawk Harrelson Takes To MLB Network To Complain About Hemorrhoids

Chicago White Sox announcer Hawk Harrelson turned up on Chris "Mad Dog" Russo's MLB Network show High Heat yesterday, and things went pretty much exactly as you'd expect, with lots of talk about Carl Yastrzemski, Tony La Russa, and this year's purportedly dangerous White Sox squad. There was also the following, one of… » 4/25/14 11:08am 4/25/14 11:08am

Jose Abreu And Danny Salazar Make Meaningless Game Something Special

If you're the kind of person who lacks the requisite attention span to sit through all nine innings of a baseball game, last night's game between the White Sox and Indians was perfect for you. You only needed to stick around for five innings of baseball in order to catch all of the awesomeness packed within the game,… » 4/11/14 11:13am 4/11/14 11:13am
