Rap and the White Sox colors

Not everyone is a White Sox fan. That's fine; it's a free country. But the color scheme and design of the Sox cap are timeless: its monochromatic look goes with everything, and the lettering features elegant typography without any frills. Hip-hop has embraced the oft-underrated White Sox look more than anyone, helping to further assert the bad-assery of simple black-and-white. Let's just put it this way: these guys wouldn't look half as awesome with a red and blue "C" on their head.

Dave Martinez for manager? He's ready.

Although all smiles with the Rays, Martinez envisions a future as a manager. "It will happen in due time," Martinez said. "Everyone keeps telling me how young I am, but if the right opportunity comes up, I'm ready to manage."

A new, more durable bat made in China—but with a new protocol for how it is tested—will be available by early September.

Classic 1981 Bill Veeck feature revisted by Grantland

"Director's Cut" of Thomas Boswell's great January 1981 Inside Sports feature on Veeck (with new commentary by Boswell & Mike Veeck). A great look at Veeck in his final days as Sox owner.

Ozzie Guillen for team mascot

He can be the fun side attraction.

Just ran into this

Perhaps it's been posted before. If so sorry for the redundancy. Lots of memories here. Ran into Nancy once several years ago playing at a convention reception at the Hyatt - very nice!
