While most of Chicago is focused on Melo and the ridiculous (and downright disrespectful) stories coming out about Derrick Rose, there’s still baseball being played in this city.  Now granted, it’s not very good baseball but it is baseball.  The White Sox are under .500, they are struggling to score, struggling to close out games and struggling to get fans in the park; even though it has been a struggle there are still plenty of good things to see.  Jose Abreu and Alexei Ramirez were voted to the All-Star Game by the players and #TargetSale to get Ace Chris Sale to the game.

Oh, the Chicago White Sox, the team you just can’t figure out.  Every time you think they’re going to take a step forward in the division, they blow it and take six steps back.

What are modern day fans really doing at Wrigley?!?  Can there be a happy correlation between the faithful Cubs fans who actually watch the game and endure the losing and those that just show up for the party?

There are less than 90 days until the Bears kickoff the 2014 season and the Bulls still haven’t picked up that elusive star, so baseball is still center stage in Chicago.  While the north siders’ struggle to build a new Wrigley and the rumors of a possible Jeff Samardzija trade steal the headlines, the south siders are quietly remaining in the playoff picture.  I think it’s time to shift the focus to the south side boys of summer.
