White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez apparently smoked a cigar in the dugout before a game, and we now have a picture of it happening on June 7th. It is often that you see baseball players in the past enjoying some chew, but a cigar prior to a game is on a different level.

  • So What !!!
  • I guess this is important to some. Looks like he is taking a break. The way he is attired, he has been working out at something. If there were thousands of fans in the park at the same time, he would neither be dressed like he is or puffing a stogie.
  • Big deal. The headline is clearly misleading readers to think a player is sitting on the bench, during the game and sparking up. Garbage journalism.
  • Really? This is news? Who cares?
  • Ahhhh, a good cuban before the game of the day. I bet it smelled great too! I wish Obama would relax the stupid santions on that poor tiny Island of Cuba so I could buy some 57 chevy's.....Viva Cuba. Libre from the yankee imperialism. Go Dolphins.
  • Disgusting, but what would you expect? Not likely Rhodes scholar.
  • last iknew smoking was still legal and i certainly don't need some holier than thou casting aspertions because they don't agree with the players choice of relaxation.
    remember that catchy phrase "Land of the free.......
  • true, smoking is legal. but he is clearly at U.S. Cellular field, where smoking is prohibited.
  • Big deal smoke um if you got um.
  • Legal maybe.. disgusting,yes. Not allowed in my house.
  • Looks like a blunt to me... Amen!!!
  • LET'S HANG THE BASTARD!!!!!
    Holy crap! Talk about much ado about nothing!
    Rock out with your **** out, Alexei! You are an amazing shortstop as well........
  • Fricken media, and sports journalism to boot. Who really gives a hit. Half of what they say about smoking is baloney anyway. let a person do as they will. Just tell me the scores you diks
  • Jim Leyland used to smoke cigarettes regularly during games in his days as Pirates manager. Never got much attention.
  • Let's see what's the magazine he's reading..hmmmm Obviously a slow sports news day, or the people at Cosby Sweaters have an axe to grind?
