Major League Baseball executive vice president Joe Torre responds to a question during Thursday's news conference at MLB headquarters, in New York, Thursday.
CHICAGO | LaTroy Hawkins put his arm this year where his mouth was in 2012.
NEW YORK | Jake Peavy pitched three-hit ball in his return from a balky back, Alejandro De Aza had a leadoff homer and the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Mets 6-3 on Wednesday night to split their two-game interleague series.
Lost in the hubbub of Tom Ricketts’ threat to move from Wrigley Field is the Cubs chairman’s desire for vastly increased TV rights fees that could bump WGN out of the picture for the first time in 65 years.
ARLINGTON, Texas | Conor Gillaspie and Alejandro De Aza homered in the seventh inning and the Chicago White Sox ended a three-game losing streak with a 5-2 win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.
CHICAGO | John Danks is coming, eventually.
CHICAGO | The White Sox are starting to get contributions from everyone on the roster and that's producing wins.
CHICAGO | In past years, a budding batting slump by Alex Rios might spiral out of control, with the entire year lost.
CINCINNATI | Starting pitcher Carlos Villanueva raised his arm toward a clubhouse attendant and twisted his hand, asking him to turn down the blaring music so he could hear reporters' questions.
CHICAGO | Rain postponed Tuesday night's game between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox.
The higher the level of sports, it is logical to assume, the better are the agents, athletes, coaches, management types, medics and scouts.
The Blue Jays' Rajai Davis, right, steals third base in front of White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie during the first inning of Thursday's game in Toronto.
White Sox starting pitcher Jose Quintana struck out seven Toronto batters in 6 2/3 innings of Wednesday's 7-0 win.
Jeff Samardzija of Valparaiso, Curtis Granderson of Lynwood and Lloyd McClendon of Chesterton are household names in the majors. John Mallee of Schererville soon will be as Astros hitting coach.
CHICAGO | White Sox manager Robin Ventura said backup infielder Conor Gillaspie “wants to be a storm chaser.”
PITTSBURGH | Carlos Marmol remains the closer for the Cubs until further notice.
CHICAGO | When a team’s bullpen – the perceived team strength -- performs according to plan, smiles and humorous body English prevail in the winning clubhouse.
CHICAGO | Even though he kept the nay-sayers away with a game-winning homer Monday, White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers still had his priorities straight after he helped guide Chris Sale to a 1-0 victory over the Kansas City Royals.
The White Sox’s strategy to contend in the American League Central is to field a deep pitching staff and hope three or four lineup regulars improve through experience.
With the Theo Epstein-mandated rebuilding process’ end not yet in sight, the Cubs don’t yet have a true rotation ace and a certified team leader.
