    White Sox offense explodes in dominant win over Mariners

    SEATTLE -- Who needs Luis Robert? Hours after the White Sox reportedly added another potential building block for the rebuild with a massive deal, Avisail Garcia continued his not-so-fast, I’m-still-here campaign. Garcia matched a club record with four extra-base hits, including two home runs, and drove in a career-high six runs as the White Sox pounded the Seattle Mariners 16-1 in front of 33,801 at Safeco Field. Matt Davidson and Willy Garcia also homered for the White Sox, who have never scored more runs in Seattle. Willy Garcia’s homer was the first of his career and it all came in support of Mike Pelfrey, who earned the victory with six sharp innings. “Pretty impressive,” manager Rick Renteria

    Taste-tasting craziest ballpark food item — Mariners' toasted grasshoppers

    The most curious item in ballpark cuisine is packed into small, clear plastic containers, like those used for salsa at a takeout restaurant, and stacked under lamps at a small stand on the Safeco Field outfield concourse.

It's only a couple of minutes before my turn for that experience, so I tell the woman at the counter I'll have the chicken tacos — and the grasshoppers. Yes, the Mariners are selling edible, chili-lime-seasoned, toasted grasshoppers, and they have been a huge hit. The idea started when Mariners staff members

    Angels sign RHP Doug Fister to fortify injury-depleted staff

    NEW YORK (AP) — Looking to reinforce an injury-ravaged pitching staff, the Los Angeles Angels signed Doug Fister for the remainder of the season on Saturday. Fister will report to extended spring training in Arizona to begin workouts. He was a free agent after going 12-13 with a 4.64 ERA in 32 starts for Houston last year. The 6-foot-8 righty threw 180 1/3 innings and pitched pretty well most of the season before fading badly in September and losing his last five decisions. "We've seen Doug pitch for a long time and hopefully his stuff will be at a level that we saw when he was successful," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said before Saturday night's game against the New York Mets. "He's starting
