Midwest Sports Fans:
Alexei Ramirez has been one of the White Sox most consistent players throughout the last few seasons.
He’s been an everyday starter for four seasons now and has averaged a .278 BA, 19 HR, and 77 RBI per year. What’s most impressive is that these statistics have not been skewed by extreme numbers in any given year; in each of his seasons he had stats right around those averages.
It’s hard to come by a franchise shortstop that can be the informal captain of the infield on defense who also puts up consistent offensive numbers, but the White Sox have found just that with the former Cuban star.

Despite a typically slow start at the plate this year, I see pretty much a lot of the same from Ramirez in 2012.
I can’t think of any reason why he wouldn’t continue this consistent streak of offensive output. He will hit in the .270s and club aro...

There are plenty instances of fans who want their 15 seconds of fame and get it by running on a field during a live sporting event. Usually they range from 21-40 and they are helped by some sort of liquid courage. Today during the Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles game a fan ran onto the field and the game was halted momentarily. The culprit was not our usual fan looking...
I had just stopped watching the White Sox/Orioles game when I noticed this tweet pop up on one of my columns on Tweetdeck:
A small child was just running around in left field. He's being carried off by security. No tackling or tasering. That was bizarre.

Yes, that sounded bizarre enough for me to tune back in and go...
In the early stages of the season, I’ve done a lot of talking about the trio that I have labeled “the comeback kids”: Alex Rios, Jake Peavy, and of course Adam Dunn.
These three players were at one point All Stars at the top of the league, but they recently have struggled to contribute to the White Sox winning ball games.
I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I have very...
Just because the name is White Sox Off Day doesn’t mean we always have to wait for off days to bring you in-depth, entertaining White Sox discussion.
We had our first “getaway day special” today, and UGod from South Side Sox was kind enough to give us an hour of his time and expertise talking all things White Sox.
Among the many topics we covered:
General impressions of the...
It’s not technically an off day since the White Sox play this afternoon, but it is getaway day…which means no Good Guys to watch tonight.
So we’ll give you something to do instead, with Episode #4 of White Sox Off Day.
The esteemed UGod from South Side Sox joins Kevin and Jerod to break down the rather schizophrenic series against the Orioles, which concludes at 1:10 at U...
Slumping slugger Adam Dunn lined a three-run double, A.J. Pierzynski homered and the Chicago White Sox snapped a three-game slide with an 8-1 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night.
Dunn was jeered by the crowd of 13,818 when he swung and missed for his 19th strikeout in the first inning, dropping his average to .175. But the designated hitter walked and scored in...

MIAMI - Daniel Martinez is willing to forgive Ozzie Guillen. He believes his five-game suspension was suitable for the comment he made praising Fidel Castro.
But if Martinez ever has a chance to talk to the Miami Marlins manager, he would have some pointed remarks.
"My comment to him would be he knows nothing," Martinez said through a translator. "You have to experience...
About two dozen protesters are outside Marlins Ballpark, expressing their displeasure with manager Ozzie Guillen.
The demonstration Thursday came before Miami's afternoon game with the Chicago Cubs. Many waved Cuban flags, held signs and used a megaphone to criticize the manager.
Guillen's comments lauding Fidel Castro in a Time magazine interview sparked anger within the...
Chicago's Paul Konerko is off to a strong start, but the White Sox are struggling a bit.
Facing the Seattle Mariners should expedite the first baseman's hot hitting and help his team get out of its funk.
Konerko and the White Sox look to continue their dominance over the Mariners in Friday's series opener at Safeco Field.
Chicago (6-6) arrives in Seattle after striking...
Ozzie Guillen will be in the news again tonight, only this time it won’t be for anything he said. Guillen is set to make his return as manager of the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park, as they take on the Chicago Cubs. Ozzie served a five game suspension for comments he made about “loving” and “respecting” Fidel Castro.
