The White Sox didn’t take long to exercise their 2011 club option on Alexei Ramirez, making the decision official Thursday concerning their Silver Slugger Award winner at shortstop.

Ramirez will earn a base salary of $2.75 million, after he opted out of the final year of his four-year deal that would have paid him $1.1 million. The White Sox could have let Ramirez go to arbitration and had until Dec. 15 to make this particular call.

Alexei is awesome with a capital A baby. I wish we had more like him!

    • I’m with you on the first three. I have my doubts on viciedo. will he learn to take a walk?

      • That’s the only bad thing about his game but hopfully he can learn to take a few walks, but he’s got massive power you know

        • yes, power he has a lot of.

          but he can’t hit many balls that are a couple feet outside the strike zone, which is what he will be getting if he keeps swinging at everything.
