Anyone looking to see great baseball should look no further than U.S. Cellular Field in August.
The Chicago White Sox, who are in the middle of a hot division race in the American League Central, have a packed home calendar.
The Sox traded starting pitcher Edwin Jackson and infielder Mark Teahen to the Toronto Blue Jays for a package including reliever Jason Frasor. Frasor is expected to help solidify the back-end of the Sox bullpen the rest of the way.
At the plate, Paul Konerko continues to be one of the best in White Sox history. He has nine RBI since the All-Star Break, which is among the best among all first basemen in the American League. Outfielder Carlos Quentin has also been good since the Break, knocking in 11 runs since representing the Sox at the All-Star Game.
After a brief road trip to Minnesota and Baltimore, the Sox return home for an important nine-game homestand. It begins with a weekend series against the young Kansas City Royals (Aug. 12-14), against whom the Sox need wins to stay in the playoff hunt.
The Sox will then host a crucial three-game series against the Cleveland Indians (Aug. 16-18), who are just ahead of the Sox in the Central Division entering August. After those three games, the Sox face the powerful, Western Division-leading Texas Rangers for three games (Aug. 19-21).
