So, it’s no secret that the White Sox have had a less-than-stellar season so far. However, Alexei Ramirez was recently awarded the AL Player of the Week title for the week of May 16-22. This is the third time a White Sox player (the other two being Carlos Quentin and Paul Konerko) has won the award this season, which is only eight weeks old. So, in the eight weeks that this award has been given, a White Sock has been the recipient about 38% of the time.
Granted, the Player of the Week distinction kind of reeks of cheap, yay-little-first-grader-you-get-a-gold-star-ness, but still. If a Pale Hose has been the best in the American League for 38% of the season, we have to be doing something right.
