    Thursday we told you that both Ryan Braun and Ian Kinsler were close to 30/30 (Home Runs and Steals). Well Braun got there quickly. Hitting two home runs on Friday to reach the 30/30 club. Now with 31 home runs, lets see if he can get hot. Maybe 40/40?

    Braun is really making a strong case for MVP.

    White Sox call up pitcher Dylan Axelrod to fill out their team. Axelrod is part of a recent influx of young Jewish ball players. He is the first Jewish player on the White Sox since Aaron Peroda. The White Sox called up Axelrod who went 9-3 with a 2.69 ERA in 26 appearances (24 starts) in the minors this season. He was most recently in AAA Charlotte. Best of luck and you know we will be following his progress.

    While his numbers were down, few thought Igor Olshansky’s job was in jeopardy because of his play. But his contract was a problem.

Olshansky should find his way onto a different roster soon and we we will have that information when its available. Good luck to big Igor. For more click HERE.
