Indians 10, White Sox 4: Making the season worth ending

Thanks to some early offensive fireworks, it wasn’t immediately obvious to newcomers which team was fighting for the best record in the American League Friday night in Cleveland, and which was straining for a reason to keep going, but these things have a certain, brutal way of self-correcting. Despite staking themselves to a pair of early two-run leads, the White Sox were quickly...

Five sports stadiums that should be renamed

What’s in a stadium name? For the past two decades, usually millions of sponsorship dollars, self-created nicknames no one uses and some hubris when a shady company goes belly-up in the name of fraud. The wide majority of major league sports venues are named after corporations big and small, with a good chunk of them having to be renamed over the years because of company mergers...

Unlike Sale, slumping second half Frazier did not have the stats of someone...

It was one of the critical things holding them back, as Abreu generated a first-half line that was a little worse than average. In the second half, as the White Sox have faded, Abreu’s been fantastic...

Chris Sale’s Cy Young case goes in the tank

Things were not looking perfect for Chris Sale‘s bid to win his first Cy Young Award going into Wednesday night. Despite the Bovada odds, and for all the denigration that Rick Porcello has gotten as a candidate driven forward by his fortuitous win-loss record, his ERA was all of 0.05 higher than Sale’s, and they had the exact same number of innings (Sale had racked up the total...

Chicago White Sox: Abreu showing he hasn’t lost it
