LYNWOOD | Maybe he didn't take the "ACE" part that seriously.
CHICAGO | Curtis Granderson was still as verbally diplomatic with his free-agent plans, including the White Sox, as he was snaring corporate or community contributor to his far-flung philanthropic efforts.

Tampa Bay Rays catcher Jose Lobaton swung a bat made in Valparaiso when he belted a walk-off homer out of Tropicana Field in the bottom of the ninth Monday.

NEW YORK | Robin Ventura figured it was best to look forward after a particularly disheartening loss.
CHICAGO | Good defensive outfielder, can play all three positions.
CHICAGO | While Matt Garza mastered many White Sox players Sunday, he couldn’t quite get past a brother act that performed in support of one another better than any such tandem in 58 years.
CHICAGO | A middle of the lineup of Hall of Famers, a host of journeyman ballplayers in between and just average fans all reveled Saturday night in the last glamorous event of the forgettable 2013 White Sox season.
CHICAGO | “It’s tough being a kid today.”
MINNEAPOLIS | Hector Santiago overcame a root canal to make his start on Tuesday against Detroit — getting a no-decision for his effort.

CHICAGO | Some $16.5 million in salary relief through 2014 and the immediate start of the Avisail Garcia era were the immediate benefits to the White Sox Friday after their trade of right fielder Alex Rios to the Texas Rangers.

CLEVELAND | Chris Sale is an All-Star and the undisputed ace of the White Sox.
CLEVELAND | The White Sox looked ready to break their skid when they fell hard — again.

CHICAGO | As if life wasn’t bad enough for the White Sox with a 14-36 record against the Detroit Tigers since Aug. 14, 2010, they’re now attacked by Motown’s Godzillas rather than mere ferocious beasts.
