It’s become sort of an annual tradition with the Chicago White Sox. Acquire a few pieces via trade or free agency, generate something of a buzz, get fans excited, and ultimately end the season in disappointing fashion. While the season’s first month or so presented a deviation from this norm, their stock ultimately plummeted from May on. A team that was 24-14 on May 13 was fighting...

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...

Chicago White Sox first basemen Jose Abreu is showing he’s still one of the best. After a slow start to the 2016 season many Sox fans worried that maybe Jose Abreu’s skills were starting to diminish.
