No All-Star starters for White Sox?

White Sox keep the No. 19 spot in rankings

Despite eventually losing the game, Chicago tied an MLB record by blasting seven home runs on Saturday, as six players in the starting lineup went yard, including Brett Lawrie, who did so twice. Power Rankings

Chicago letdown marks history

You would think when your team outscores the opponent seven homers to one you have the game in the bag, right? In most cases, you'd be right. But in the White Sox-Blue Jays game Saturday, this was not the case and therefore marked history as a first.

There's a reason they're the aces

For these four teams, their ace pitchers might as well be gold. And the drop off from their stats in comparison to all others should give you a good idea of why.

White Sox triple up

Brett Lawrie, Dioner Navarro and J.B. Shuck hit back-to-back-to-back home runs in the second inning. The only other team to do that this season was the Giants on Opening Day. Chicago still trails the Blue Jays. Follow live

'85 Bears ended Chicago's long drought

After the 90s Bulls and the Blackhawks' current run, it's easy to forget the Windy City's lack of titles from 1964 to January of 1986. According to Bill Barnwell, that stretch is the third-worst run of misery ended by a championship, trailing Cleveland and Seattle. Sports Misery Index

Where does Collins rank for White Sox?

Zack Collins may have been the No. 10 overall pick in this year's draft, but is his talent enough for him to replace the recently promoted Tim Anderson as Keith Law's No. 1 White Sox prospect? Where top 2016 draft picks rank (Insider)

Sigh, 'tis a shame the White Sox bullpen surrendered James Shields' runs. With Colby Lewis on the DL, Shields might've made the strongest case for the newest "Jekyll and Hyde" pitcher.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

In the latest edition of "You can't predict baseball," James Shields has held the Red Sox scoreless through four innings. That's the James Shields who has allowed 32 runs in his past four starts while getting just 34 outs. The White Sox lead 3-0 as they go for the four-game sweep.

Tim Anderson joins White Sox history

Anderson blasted the first pitch he saw from Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz out of the park for his first career home run on Tuesday. He is only the third White Sox player in the last 60 years whose first career long ball came leading off in the first inning, joining Floyd Robinson (May 13, 1961) and Thad Bosley (May 29, 1978), the Elias Sports Bureau notes.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Brilliant effort tonight by Chris Sale, who had a 6.05 ERA over his previous five starts after some early season BABIP luck turned against him. This is the Chris Sale we're used to, with nine K's in seven innings. Forget that pitch-to-contact nonsense! Strike guys out!

Jose Abreu comes up clutch

Abreu slugged a two-run double off Craig Kimbrel to give the White Sox a 3-1 win in Boston on Monday. The first baseman is hitting .286 with two strikes this month, over 100 points higher than his two-strike batting average in April and May (.174), the Elias Sports Bureau notes.

White Sox's All-Star vote prospects bleak

In the AL's fourth ballot update, the only White Sox among the top vote-getters at his position is Melky Cabrera, who's down to No. 14 among outfielders.
