MILWAUKEE — The Oakland A’s were in free fall and Jeff Samardzija had just watched his seven shutout innings go to waste during a 2-1 loss to the White Sox.
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- Tony La Russa was caught off-guard by the large crowd on hand for Sunday’s National Baseball Hall of Fame induction.
The White Sox enter Friday’s game with an American League-high 641 strikeouts, and frankly, it’s too many for their manager.
The White Sox have only had a top-three pick in the MLB Draft three times: 1969 (No. 3), 1971 (No. 1) and 1977 (No. 1).
Only seven men have hit more than the 609 home runs Sammy Sosa slammed during his big-league career.
