White Sox expected to retire Paul Konerko’s No. 14

Paul Konerko said he’d play in the last homestand of his career if it meant “taking the three ugliest swings and striking out.’’ Thankfully for the retiring White Sox captain, it shouldn’t be that ugly.

White Sox outlast Royals in record-setting game

White Sox manager Robin Ventura was still in a joking mood -- even after managing a nine-inning game that lasted 4 hours, 16 minutes Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium. “I didn’t even notice,” Ventura joked of the game’s length. “I thought it was nice and crisp.” It probably helped Ventura’s mood that the Sox pulled off a 7-5 victory in a game in which 15 different...

Here is Visual Proof That Chris Sale Is Not Human

Thank you, Deadspin, for unraveling the mystery that is the anatomy of White Sox pitcher Chris Sale.  As the article above proves, Chris Sale is, in fact, an invertebrate humanoid alien likely from a galaxy Neil DeGrasse Tyson is yet to know about.

It’s pretty great to see fan-friendly actions like this at the...
