Start Thornton now & live with a few early mistakes. Get Allen off the ball. Either bench Amile or Matt to make room.
1. Thornton 2. Allen 3. Matt 4. Ingram 5. Plumlee Maybe put Jefferson in at 4 and not start Matt but that's what I see
It pains me endlessly to say this, but Tyler Ulis vs. Derryck Thornton tonight was like Stockton vs. Matt Maloney circa 1997
Us not having a TRUE PG hurt us tonight. Derryck Thornton play will have increase. Grayson & Matt can't play the PG.
Grayson has one move, drive right and throw up a shot.. Matt Jones can't dribble, Thornton is a turnover machine, n Ingram is half retarded
Outlook: optimistic? Amile and Matt are studs. Marshall can disappear but take over when he wants. Thornton has some moments.
need Thornton to step up in the pg spot. Grayson and Matt do not belong there

Plumlee Jefferson and Matt jones and Thornton that was Duke offense
They NEED a PG on the floor... Grayson and Matt Jones ain't gone last the whole year.. And Thornton gone be aight foreel
I like the kid Thornton I think he can be a player but it's no way we can go through the entire season with Matt Jones playing point...
Coach K at some point this season is going to start Thornton and put Matt Jones or Grayson back on the bench
My only concern with Duke is how fast Thornton can develop. We need Matt off the ball spotting up, not bringing it up
Matt jones just intentionally inbounded the ball to Ingram instead of Thornton.
Duke doesn't have a Tyus Jones-type calming force yet, and they'll need Derryck Thornton, Matt Jones or Grayson Allen to step into that role
Coach K is having Grayson push the ball when derryck Thornton can bring it up and having Grayson attack and Matt spotting up
Derryck Thornton is VERY young but coach K just gotta let him start and learn on the go. Cuz matt jones and grayson not good for the PG
Grayson checks out after a third foul. Derryck Thornton comes in and assists a Matt Jones' 3! Down to 3!
They need to keep him out and put Matt Jones, and Thornton in

Matt jones can't worry about offense today. He just needs to lock down Murray or briscoe. Thornton is gonna have to guard ulis too
Matt Jones hit plenty, and was good to see Ingram start to showcase his skill from deep. Thornton buckets would be big.

On the other hand, the Yankees lost Robinson Cano, Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte, and others. Are the new-look Yankees playoff-bound in 2014?

Looking back at 2013 in Chicago Sports... Top story-The Blackhawks win a second Stanley Cup in the NHL salary cap era. No other team can say that. Say it ain't so Derrick-Possible come back last spring, does not, does come back in the fall and just a few weeks later gone for the rest of this year. Very sad... Times a changing for the Bears-Lovie Smith and Brian Urlacher gone, Marc Trestman plucked from Canada as new head coach, too many injuries on the "d" offense makes a dramatic turnaround, defense makes a dramatic downturn...and they miss the playoffs. Baseball not good-Cubs-Sox combine for almost 200 losses, gone Dale Sveum, Alfonso Soriano, Jake Peavy, Alex Rios, Matt Thornton, Addison Reed and Hector Santiago. But Paulie stays one more year. Sky is not falling-The Chicago Sky and the new face of the WNBA Elena Del-Donne make the playoffs for the first time. Bowling-Northwestern wins a bowl game and lays an egg the following season. Jordan Lynch proves he can take a MAC team to new heights with a 3rd ...
Word is the Yankees have begun the process of filling holes with bargain pieces by adding lefty reliever Matt Thornton and Brian Roberts. Two players with something in common personally for me. I've long been a big fan of these guys in regards to wishing the Yankees had them. I realize neither is the player they used to be, but I don't think either is expected to be. I heard the talk about Roberts a while back, but it didn't make sense seeing as I figured Kelly Johnson to be the left-handed hitting second baseman. I guess Johnson will be utilized more as a utility guy than I thought. Despite Roberts' decline, I still think he's a better player than Johnson. Roberts will play second when he isn't injured (which has been often in his career.) He'll pop a few home runs, steal a few bases, provide a steady glove and smack a good share of doubles. Last year was his best year since 2010 and he's 36, so I'm being realistic in my expectations. But he's a nice veteran bench player who could possibly be thi ...
Well today the Yankees sign Brian Roberts and Matt Thornton with some talks going on with Mark Reynolds and Michael Young, let's hope tanaka gets posted.
Looking forward to seeing Matt Thornton stroll in from the Yankee bullpen instead of Logan. David Ortiz should also be pleased.
More MLB-First baseman Mike Napoli stays with the Boston Red Sox on a two year, $32M contract. There was concern about Napoli's future in Boston after he declared that he would test the free agent market and rejected a qulifying offer from the Red Sox. There was also speculation earlier this week that Napoli planned to meet with both the Texas Rangers and the Seattle Mariners. The Red Sox also came to terms with free agent relief pitcher Edward Mujica. Mujica will likely fill Matt Thornton's role after the Red Sox last month elected not to bring back Thornton, whom they acquired in a trade in June.

Why do I think of you Matt Thornton??? :-D
I know this probably isn't the time for reason, but I'm here to keep it REAL Red Sox fans. 1) St. Louis' pitcher tonight is ehhh...average. We will win tonight's game, so there's still a 50% chance we could win this series. 2) Stephen Drew, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Matt Thornton.3 wastes of space, will be ancient history next year. I know NO ONE wants to hear this right now, but simply playing Middlebrooks, Bogaerts & Lavarnway all year makes this team 25% better. It's important to remember...this team has way overachieved. 3) St Louis has shown Ben Cherington what he needs: A flame thrower for the pen, a flame throwing starter and a bopper that can hit for average too
Game over: Orioles 7, Red Sox 6 - The Red Sox have lost the final regular season game of the season here at Camden Yards this afternoon. The Red Sox pulled John Lackey from the start and basically went with a bullpen game with Allen Webster pitching three scoreless innings while Felix Doubront, Matt Thornton, Ryan Dempster, Craig Breslow, Rubby de La Rosa all got work in. The Doubront/Thornton outings could determine their status on the postseason roster and neither pitched well. Webster had a rough first innings, walking three, but then settled down. Jacoby Ellsbury and Quintin Berry homered. The Red Sox rallied in the ninth against Jim Johnson. David Ortiz singled, advanced to second on a wild pitch and scored on Mike Napoli's single. Mike Carp then singled to put runners at first and third and one out. But Will Middlebrooks knocked into a 5-4-3 double play to end the game and the season for the Orioles. Johnson recorded his 50th save, the second time in as many years to accomplish the feat. The Red Sox ...
I don't envy John Farrell having to choose between Matt Thornton, Drake Britton and Franklin Morales for a second lefty coming out of the postseason bullpen. Craig Breslow's a lock, and Felix Doubront pitched nicely today, very fluid, but he's been a starter all year and it seems unlikely that he would get any postseason starts with Lester, Buchholz, Lackey and Peavy in front of him. So use Felix, Dempster and Brandon Workman for long relief and Breslow, Tazawa and Koji for late innings. That leaves De La Rosa, Webster, Britton, Thronton and Morales on the outs. The other question marks remain: Ryan Lavarnway or David Ross, JBJ Jr. (depending on Ellsbury's return) or Quintin Berry, and which one utility infielder, MacDonald or Holt or Snyder.
Would like to see Matt Thornton, Javier Lopez, or Eric O'Flaherty for LH bullpen help and Jesse Crain or Grant Balfour for RH bullpen help

Matt Thornton > Jose Veras but got a decent player for Thornton.
I'd rather have Alan Embree MY: “acquired LH Matt Thornton and cash from White Sox for minor league OF Brandon Jacobs.”

Red Sox targeting White Sox setup man Matt Thornton Like many in-contention major league teams, the Red Sox will be looking to beef up their bullpen before the July 31 trade deadline. And it sounds like a certain pursuit might already be underway. According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, White Sox reliever Matt Thornton is on a “list of possible bullpen targets” for the Boston front office. Atlanta is also known to have inquired about the veteran left-hander, though Rosenthal heard Sunday that the Braves’ actual level of interest is “limited.” Thornton, 36, has registered a 3.04 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 20/9 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings this season out of the White Sox bullpen. He has held left-handed batters to a .229/.295/.350 batting line in his career and he’s also pretty effective against righties.
Rebuilding is a foreign word to White Sox management, but guess what? NOW's the time for new GM Rick Hahn to cut his losses and make a bunch of trades before the July 31st MLB Trading Deadline. If it means saying goodbye to 1B Paul Konerko, so be it. If it means eating a lot of $ to part with 1B/DH Adam Dunn, RF Alex Rios, as well as pitchers Jake Peavy & Jesse Crain (even though on the DL), John Danks, Matt Thornton and others. To a certain degree, I felt sorry for "MLB on FOX's" *** Stockton & Brian Anderson calling the Sox latest loss, a 3-0 shutout loss Saturday night in Tampa Bay. This Sox outfit needs a BIG time rebuild.
Gordon Beckham went 2-4 with a home run and an RBI, but it wasn't enough as the Sox dropped a 4-2 decision to the Baltimore Orioles, their 6th loss in the last 7 games. Adam Dunn was 1-4 with a double and an RBI, and Jeff Keppinger was 2-4 with a double. Matt Lindstrom (2-3) took the loss despite only throwing 10 pitches when Matt Thornton gave up a 2 run double on the first pitch he threw. Starting pitcher Hector Santiago looked good, throwing 123 pitches, going 7 innings, giving up 5 hits, 2 ER, while striking out 9. Ramon Troncoso threw 24 pitches, but only 7 of them were for strikes. The Sox record now stands at 33-48, 18-20 at home. The Sox are in 5th place in the AL Central, currently 3 games behind the Twins for 4th, 11 games behind the Tigers and Indians who are tied for 1st, and 13 games out of a wild card spot. Next up: the rubber match of this 3 game set tomorrow at 1:10pm against the Orioles from Comiskey Park.
After Markasis singles, White Sox change pitchers with Nate Jones taking the mound. Manny walks, and Hardy grounds into a double play, moving Markakis up to third. Adam Jones singles, bring in Markakis for a run. Another pitching change has Matt Thornton replacing Nate Jones, and Davis gets the third out on a line drive. O's come back slightly with a score of 5-2 heading into the bottom of the 8th. Hammel will be replaced by Gausman.
With the Rockies, White Sox and Dodgers all but confirmed sellers, I'd would like to see a trade that nets the Mets, John Danks, Matt Thornton, Nick Punto, Carlos Gonzalez.
Breast Cancer Awareness Jake Peavy, Jesse Crain, Matt Thornton, Matt Lindstrom and perhaps even Gordon Beckham will become available if the White Sox do indeed take the position of sellers this July. Anyone need them on their team?(name the team) -Ryan
Adam Rosales hit a solo homer, the A's fourth of the night, in the 10th inning off White Sox reliever Matt Thornton to cap Oakland's comeback victory. Yoenis Cespedes hit a pair of homers and Josh Reddick added another. A's hit four home runs to rally past White Sox in 10 Rosales hits winner; Cespedes hits pair and Reddick adds one. During their current hot streak, the A's have found numerous ways to win. Thursday night, they added another -- the long ball. Hitting four home runs in a game (all solo) for the first time this season, the A's continued to roll with a 5-4, 10-inning comeback victory over the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. The final homer came in the top of the 10th as shortstop Adam Rosales drilled a 1-2 high fastball from left-hander reliever Matt Thornton over the fence in left field, helping the A's (37-25) win for the sixth time in seven games and for 17th time in the last 20. Both starters -- Dan Straily for the A's and Jose Quintana for the White Sox -- dominated early as the first 1 ...

There isn't much to report on the White Sox so lets get them finished. They did lose Kevin Youkilis and Orlando Hudson which will hurt them a little. But the lineup has stayed the same. What will hurt them is if Gordon Beckham doesn't produce there isn't a back-up. Alex Rios, Alejandro De Aza and Dayan Viciedo will be the starters with Dewayne Wise the spot fill. Infield will consist of Alexei Ramirez, Jeff Keppinger, Paul Konerko and Beckham. Tyler Flowers will catch Chris Sale, Jake Peavy, John Danks, Gavin Floyd and Jose Quintana. Addison Reed will close with set up of Matt Thornton and Jesse Crain. Fact Jake Peavy and Zach Greinke numbers are very close yet they are viewed on different levels. Guess what they are on the same level. Adam Dunn is the DH regardless. They will probably be behind the Tigers but the Indians might put up a fight.
Matt Thornton, Gavin Floyd, John Danks and Addison Reed are all throwing bullpens today.
Thornton feels 'great' after bullpen session GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Matt Thornton threw a 35-pitch bullpen session Sunday morning at Camelback Ranch and reported absolutely no discomfort. "Not at all. Felt great," said Thornton, who mixed in all of his pitches. "Aside from being numb from the cold and wind, it's fine." Thornton felt soreness in his triceps, near the back of his left elbow, which caused him to miss a live batting-practice session on Tuesday. The veteran left-hander played down the soreness, even joking that it must be a slow news run in White Sox camp to place so much focus on what he didn't even consider a minor setback. Next up for Thornton is live BP on Wednesday, followed by a couple days off, then a bullpen... ~SportsMan
