WHITE SOX ADD SAMARDZIJA, ROBERTSON

The Chicago White Sox have made the biggest splash so far at the Winter Meetings in San Diego, adding two impact arms in starter Jeff Smardzija and closer David Robertson. The AL Central may be the most winnable of the six divisions and the White Sox, 73-89 last year, saw Kansas City make the most […]

DIAMONDBACKS DEAL FOR CLOSER REED

DIAMONDBACKS DEAL FOR CLOSER REED

The Arizona Diamondbacks saw their bullpen blow 29 saves last season and that tied for the most in MLB with Houston.

CHISOX RELEASE GUILLEN FROM CONTRACT

Ozzie Guillen managed his final game with the White Sox tonight and is likely headed to the Florida Marlins, reports Joe Cowly of the Chicago Sun-Times. The long-rumored trade of the manager to south Florida is apparently close to becoming reality, as the Fish will offer compensation, though not anyone of Logan Morrison’s stature. Guillen […]
