    Howard Stern taking his 'Talent' to Chicago area
    "America's Got Talent" will do this week what the National Radio Hall of Fame couldn't last November: It will get legendary shock jock Howard Stern to come to the Chicago area. Stern — who was inducted into the Chicago-based Hall of Fame but...

    White Sox sully Shields' solid start
     Jordan Danks atoned for a baserunning blunder in the ninth inning by hitting a solo home run in the 11th that lifted the Chicago White Sox over the Kansas City Royals 2-1 Monday.     Danks connected with two outs off Kelvin Herrera (2-3) for his first...

    Your Morning Phil: Hahn, Peavy, Wood
    Talking baseball while praising Kirk Hinrich’s grit: 1. There are lots of good deals on Chicago condos. A forward-thinking baseball organization might buy, not merely rent hotel space, this summer. Scouts will be camping out on both sides of...

    Your Morning Phil: Dunn, draft, Ozzie
    Talking baseball while wondering if Tom Thibodeau can make Deron Williams’ homecoming unpleasant: 1. When Robin Ventura introduced it in spring training, I loved the White Sox’s realigned batting order, with the 3-4-5 combination of Alex...
  • Soriano happy Clemens cleared in perjury trial

    Soriano happy Clemens cleared in perjury trial
    It might take several years — if ever — for many baseball fans to find Roger Clemens innocent in the court of public opinion. But Cubs left fielder Alfonso Soriano says he is pleased a jury cleared Clemens of perjury charges related to...
  • Konerko just goes about his business

    Konerko just goes about his business
    Signs of respect are spotted easily. For instance, Red Sox rookie Felix Doubront was working carefully to Adam Dunn in the first inning Thursday night at frosty U.S. Cellular Field. He had him in a 1-2 count but then repeatedly missed trying to pound him...
  • Finally, Wood gets a win as a Cub

    Finally, Wood gets a win as a Cub
    Cubs starting pitcher Travis Wood wants home plate umpire C.B. Bucknor to know there’s an inside corner. But the shoelaces were a strike? No matter. Showing great savvy in adjusting to Bucknor’s sometimes incomprehensible strike zone...
  • Everything's Jake with the Sox

    Everything's Jake with the Sox
    During spring training, Jake Peavy said he wouldn’t try to become a pitcher who relies on guile after surgery robbed him of the power he used to have. Peavy lied, and good for him. He has become as smart as he is good. When he lost the plate in...
  • Steal spotlight: Youkilis deal a no-brainer

    Steal spotlight: Youkilis deal a no-brainer
    No-brainer. That's one way to describe the White Sox's trade for Kevin Youkilis. Potential difference-maker. That's another way. By filling their biggest hole with one of the most respected third basemen in baseball, the White Sox may have just...
  • Danks gets it right

    Danks gets it right
    Cubs manager Dale Sveum helped out the White Sox, and John Danks did the rest on Saturday night. The White Sox’s left-handed starter has had more trouble with left-handed hitters than righties this season. His confidence in throwing his changeup to...
  • Battered Sox rotation could use stalwart like Buehrle

    Battered Sox rotation could use stalwart like Buehrle
    Are Mark Buehrle's old friends about to start missing him? Sooner or later, it is bound to happen. You don't win 161 games for a franchise and leave at age 32, with a sturdy arm still capable of 200-plus innings, without your name coming up in a...
