White Sox shortstop enjoys pre-game cigar

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. via SB Nation Article found on: Cosby Sweaters

White Sox sign OF Hawkins, No. 13 pick in draft

The Chicago White Sox agreed to terms on Monday with outfielder Courtney Hawkins, the No. 13th pick in this year's draft. The 18-year-old Hawkins from Corpus Christi, Texas, hit .437 with 11 home runs, 39 RBI, 17 stolen bases and 56 runs in 36 games for Carroll High School.

MLB Trade Rumors: Would Chicago White Sox Deal Addison Reed or Nate Jones or Rotation Help?

With the way Phil Humber and Gavin Floyd have pitched recently, it’s becoming obvious that if the Chicago White Sox are going to make a move at the trade deadline, starting pitcher is where they will look. While third base and left-handed relief pitching have been issues as well, the Sox look like they are beginning to realize that they cannot expect to win a division with two...

Cuban Alexei Ramirez enjoys a pregame cigar in the dugout (Picture)

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. H/T SB Nation Chicago via Hot Clicks

Chicago White Sox Have a Big, Unexpected Problem: Pitching

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...

Jake Peavy warns teammates “Detroit is coming.”

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...

Paul Konerko Doesn't Get Credit He Deserves as Baseball's Most Underrated Player

He is currently leading the American League in batting average -- yes, even ahead of the force of nature otherwise known as Josh Hamilton. He has hit 82 home runs since the start of the 2010 season, which is more than near-Triple Crown winner Matt Kemp. He has driven in only two fewer runs since the start of that same season than the great Albert Pujols. He owns a higher slugging...

Cubs-White Sox Preview

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...

The sad life of the Cubs fan

Is underscored again as a famous White Sox fan has fun at his expense.

White Sox vs Cubs, Craig Robinson vs. Nick Offerman, The Office vs. Parks & Rec (video)

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...
