According to former manager Tony La Russa, some White Sox players were advised to slow down on routine outs to first base to reduce the risk of injury in the early stages of last season. However, White Sox reliever Joe Kelly has since clarified that any lack of effort on the field was solely the decision of each player and not instructed by the team's training staff.

You’re ready to move into your endgame house! But wait, almost forgot, you have to furnish the house too, huh? OK, let’s head down to Crazy Joe’s Discount Furniture and find four dining room chairs without cigarette burns. The maroon couch behind the abandoned Caldor next to the bowling alley that still uses a sign from 1973 looks nice.
