White Sox morning roundup


White Sox morning roundup

From yesterday:

Philip Humber allowed nine runs in five innings, including three home runs, as the Sox lost to Boston 10-3. He went from the best start of his career to the worst in a matter of days, which was a humbling reminder of the kind of sport baseball is:

No pitcher had ever followed a perfect game by allowing nine runs in his next start until Thursday -- the previous high was eight, which Catfish Hunter allowed in 1968. While most pitchers didn't follow up their perfect games with stellar performances, Humber's outing ranks among the worst.

An odd fact: None of Paul Konerko's milestone home runs (1, 100, 200, 300, 400) have been hit at home. And No. 1 came with the Dodgers but was hit at an AL park, while No. 100 came with the White Sox but was hit at an NL park.

Disappointing news down on the farm: Andre Rienzo, a 23-year-old Brazilian pitching prospect, tested positive for metabolites of Stanzanolol and received a 50-game ban under baseball's drug policy. Rienzo probably profiles as a reliever, as his offspeed stuff hasn't developed yet -- and this 50-game suspension won't help in that regard. A Brazilian has never played in the major leagues, and hopefully Rienzo apologizes and is able to move on and be the first from his country.

Around the division: Detroit cut ties with Brandon Inge, a beer at Comerica Park will run you 8.75, the Tigers lost again to Seattle, Kansas City won their second straight game over Cleveland and Chris Parmelee is doing well after being hit by a pitch in the head.
