It's Monday and the Cubs are about to face the White Sox at (what I like to call) Verizon Wireless Field. I recently posted on why the Yankees are bad for baseball and I figured it would be a good time to post my thoughts on the other AL team that I don'...

It doesn’t do any good to fire Ozzie Guillen. It doesn’t do any good because he’s not to blame. The White Sox players are.
