Sergio Santos came on to get a four-out save against the Cubs on Tuesday night, and you couldn’t help but play what-if.
The save was Santos’ 13th in 15 tries. He faced the 4-5-6-7 hitters and struck out three of them. And you couldn’t...

I got an email Wednesday that protested my shredding of the Cubs-White Sox series this weekend.
Actually, I got a lot of emails. A friendly missive from Tim Kovacik explained that I “stink’’ because I included “so many Cubs...

The Mariners needed Kevin Millwood to give them some innings Sunday in the wake of a bullpen-draining 12-inning victory the night before. Unfortunately, no sale. Or more to the point, Chris Sale, as the White Sox's young ace was the one delivering the...
