Out of sight, out of mind. Let's get you updated on the latest in the NBA talks. Nothing. There, you're updated. Sorry, but the message remains: Nobody misses you. I miss the Bulls, because they're not really like the NBA. They play good team ball, and it's fun watching Derrick Rose run around and pass the ball, and they play hard. But I don't miss the rest of the league. The overpriced players, the Miami Heat, the trash talking, the over-hyped, underperforming stars who never earn their money or their reputations.

EDITOR'S NOTE Ten years ago Monday, fans came as close to seeing the Cubs in the World Series as they'd been in six decades. Then the eighth inning of Game 6 in the National League Championship Series happened, setting off a catastrophic chapter in Chicago sports history. Why relive the Bartman game? Because it's a “where were you when …" moment. Whether you blame him to this day or believe he was a victim of overreaction, you've got an opinion. And even though it knocked Cubs fans down, they just keep getting back up. Which makes this the perfect time to check in with...

Robin Ventura may have put Hector Santiago in the White Sox starting rotation, but there's one place the reticent manager isn't following his loquacious lefty. Twitter. "No," Ventura said flatly when asked if he'll ever have an account. "No. [The players] can have [Twitter]. It's all theirs. " The social media-savvy southpaw, on the other hand, is more than happy to pick up his boss's slack. "I'm up a lot at late hours and up early so it's kind of easy for me," Santiago said, shrugging.

Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but to hear White Sox starting pitcher Andre Rienzo tell it, the diamond at U.S. Cellular Field is his. "Man, the first day I come here, I get out and just look around for five minutes," he said. "For me, all this scenery is beautiful. I just enjoy all the time I'm here. " All it took was seven years in the minors five starts in the majors and thousands of miles of travel from his native Brazil for Rienzo to make history as the first Brazilian-born player to pitch in and win a Major League Baseball game, a 5-2 decision over the Royals in Kansas City on...

White Sox pitcher Chris Sale had plenty to say in a recent interview with RedEye.   On Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder moving to the American League: "I think we all saw what happened with me and Pujols early on this year [in Spring Training]. [Laughs.] Pujols connected on a mammoth home run. He's already got one up in orbit on me, so … . But yeah, I love facing those guys, honestly. Those are the guys who really show you who you are and where you stand. "   On what he would do if a hitter charged him on the mound: "Honestly, you can say what you want to do,...

Can anyone on the White Sox or Cubs be this season's Philip Humber? Even though the journeyman pitcher tossed one of the most unlikely of the 23 perfect games in major league history for the Sox in 2012, the odds still are astronomical - about 1 in 20,000 - and the North Siders have yet to notch one in their long and storied history. 2K Sports has us thinking about it because the company is in the midst of its Perfect Game Challenge, in which gamers have logged more than 500,000 attempts at flawless pitching performances on "MLB 2K13" to win a piece of a $1 million pie. (For more on the contest,...

If you ever want to know what Jake Peavy is thinking, scrolling through the White Sox pitcher's Twitter feed ( @JakePeavy_44 ) will give you a good idea. It's obvious he loves his team, his family, music, his charity work - and calling people "Bubba. " Here's a taste of what's been on Peavy's mind the past few months:   1 Aug: Otis Redding...that's how strong my love is... If u don't know it u need too!!! 25 Jul: Dallas u've been warned with the crew I'm comin in with!

Jose Quintana already had two strikes against him before he ever set foot in Chicago in May. He had already been released by both the N.Y. Mets and N.Y. Yankees as a low-level minor leaguer. He also served a 50-game suspension as a Mets farmhand in 2007 for violating Major League Baseball's drug policy, something he chalks up to teenage naivete. "What you learn from a suspension is just that you have to be more aware of what you intake with supplements," he said recently through translator Jackson Miranda.
