From Cosby Sweaters:
White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez apparently smoked a cigar in the dugout before a recent game, and we now have a picture of it that was dated June 7. Baseball players frequently are seen enjoying some chew, but a cigar prior to a game is on a different level. It's worth noting that Ramirez is Cuban, though we don't know if we can say the same about the stogie.

So is this the kind of pregame fuel players are using in Chicago these days? I can’t imagine this was acceptable under Ozzie Guillen, unless the player was sharing his stogies, of course. Maybe this is just what Cuban-born shortstop Alexei Ramirez grew up on. Nothing to see here, move along.

Despite the Cubs’ bats being asleep for the better part of this season, they certainly woke up Monday against the Chicago White Sox as they crushed the hometown team 12-3. In an effort to preserve the young Chris Sale’s arm, reliever Zach Stewart started...

Ozzie Guillen has known a hot day or two, and after spending much of his playing and managing career in Chicago, he's not going to complain about 90-degree weather.

Guillen acknowledged that he likes it when it's...

Gavin Floyd pitched four-hit ball into the seventh, Gordon Beckham homered, and the struggling Chicago White Sox beat the Cubs 7-0 Wednesday to avoid a three-game sweep.
Floyd (5-7) put aside his recent problems. Beckham matched a career-high by driving in four runs, and the White Sox got an easy win after dropping six of seven.
They finally showed some pop after managing just...
Just over two weeks ago, the White Sox were rolling. It seemed they were scoring at will, and teams did not stand a chance to outslug the Chicago White Sox.
However, it appears that all that mashing masked a huge problem the White Sox have developed.
Now that the offense has come back down to Earth, it’s clear that outside of a few people, the White Sox pitching is not good enough...
Following the White Sox 2-1 loss to the Cubs Tuesday night, White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy had a message for his teammates. “Detroit is coming.”
He’s right. The Tigers have won seven of their last nine games and have moved within a game off .500. While the winning percentage still is a far cry from where everybody expected it to be, all that really matters is their place...
I think the White Sox have already claimed the Dead Pelican Cup, even if their entire team comes down with the plague and the Cubs eke out a sweep this week. The White Sox are a legit contender in the AL Central, in fact they're the only team with a positive run differential in the whole group. Their +36 is third best in the AL, trailing only the Yankees and Rangers. They'...
The Chicago White Sox have dominated the Chicago Cubs at home over the past four years.
Extending that run to five may not be a problem.
The White Sox, who used a major power display to sweep the Cubs last month, welcome the team with baseball's worst record to U.S. Cellular Field for Monday night's opener of a three-game set.
The Cubs (22-44) have dropped nine of their...
Ozzie Guillen wants a win -- no doubt about that. But even the veteran manager, now in his first year with Miami, is at a loss how to get it. And as the Marlins faced down another defeat at the hands of the Red Sox on Wednesday night, he was throwing out all kinds of ideas. Guillen called on a bevy of pitchers in Wednesday's loss, including those who would have been used as insurance...
Is underscored again as a famous White Sox fan has fun at his expense.
What follows is the the third installment of the New Era ballcaps ads featuring actors Nick Offerman and Craig Robinson sporting Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs caps. This one is the funniest by far; as it features Robinson in his Sox cap doing a lounge song version of “Take me out to the Ballgame.”
It’s a viral vid sure to spice up the latest edition of the Red Line Series...
