Tribune staff reporterAfter making their third foray into first place, the White Sox like where they are. And they plan to stick around for a while. "The third time should be the charm," Jose Valentin said. "We don't want to give up that lead anymore." Of course they don't....
Tribune staff reporterPerhaps White Sox manager Jerry Manuel had Johnnie Cochran in mind when he told Bartolo Colon recently: "If you don't use it, you lose it." Manuel and pitching coach Don Cooper drummed home that message to Colon as a way of encouraging him to use the...

Tribune staff reporterTwo hits. Two crummy hits. That's all Boston needed to beat Bartolo Colon and the White Sox on Tuesday night. "It's unfortunate we couldn't get anything for Bart," Paul Konerko said after the Sox's 2-1 loss. "He threw a great game." But not as good...

Tribune staff reporterFirst Carlos Lee fouled out to the shortstop. Then Frank Thomas fouled out to the catcher. Then Magglio Ordonez flied out to center. Good morning. Good afternoon. Good night. The White Sox's three best hitters went down meekly in the eighth inning...
Tribune staff reporterEsteban Loaiza wasn't himself before Tuesday night's game. He was sweating and spitting up. "Don't be surprised if I throw up on the mound," Loaiza told White Sox radio analyst Ed Farmer less than an hour before the game. Perhaps that explains why...
Tribune staff reporterWhite Sox manager Jerry Manuel expected to see the old Esteban Loaiza on Saturday night, the one who was 19-6 with a 2.60 ERA after beating Cleveland two weeks ago. Since then Manuel has seen the veteran right-hander get swept up in Loaiza-mania. First...
