One of the absolute best things about the game of baseball is the fact following a bad loss, for the most part, teams can forget about it the very next day with a new game.
Tuesday is that new day for the Chicago White Sox, following a frustrating 8-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies Monday night.
Instead of looking at the bad, I want to try an look at some of the good with this team today, and that good is the play of Alexei Ramirez.
CSN Chicago has an article about the “good start” this season by Ramirez.
The article states about Ramirez:
"“The White Sox shortstop is riding a hot streak through the first week of play, and on Sunday he was rewarded for a week’s full of consistent at-bats.”"
Later the article quotes Ramirez through manager of cultural development Lino Diaz:
"“It’s my seventh year in the league, and I feel like I’ve been around and I know how it goes. I’m able to have more fun and at the same time feel more comfortable.”"
Thus far this season, Ramirez is batting .440 with five RBIs in seven games. He has an on-base percentage of .500. Ramirez is a career .278 hitter.
In that aforementioned batting average for the season, he has three RBIs. He also has three walks and two stolen bases.
It has been enjoyable to watch the play of Ramirez thus far in 2014, and let’s all hope he can keep up a good pace as the season continues.
