ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- He may be gone for three games but Robin Ventura is still deeply involved in running the White Sox, interim manager Mark Parent said Friday.
Last week saw baseball's first big trade of the summer, with Arizona unloading Mark Trumbo to Seattle as the Mariners try to inject some life into a lagging offense.
June is upon us now, representing another "checkpoint" in the season.
Last weekend saw Kansas City take two of three from St. Louis in the I-70 series, so we have a new No. 1: The defending American League champs.
Finally, we have some stabilization at the top as the Cardinals, Dodgers and Royals hold the Nos. 1-3 spots for the second consecutive week.
