Alexei is the Shortstop of the future:

“Ozzie and I have talked, and we have no plans to move him off of shortstop,” said Williams of Ramirez. “He should be the shortstop in a White Sox uniform for a little while,” Guillen said.

Kenny likes the Alexei Ramirez, Gordon Beckham duo:

“We like having that athletic left side,” Williams said. “We really have two shortstops on our left side of the infield. As they are more comfortable with each other and become more comfortable with the Major League game, they should become one of the more solid tandems.”

Ozzie on benching Alexei back in May:

“There never was any back and forth between us because he knows I was right,” Guillen said. “There is a reason you are on the bench. We talked about it, and he understands. He had a bad attitude on the field and we come here to fight. He wasn’t fighting the right way. He thought playing shortstop in the big leagues is playing shortstop in the Cuban League. No, that’s a different scenario.”


“Alexei is a 28-year-old [as of Sept. 22] second-year player in the big leagues, who has proven that he can make the spectacular play and the routine play,” Williams said. “Is there an occasional lapse? Yeah, there is. The whole darn team has had an occasional lapse. He’s going to continue to grow and get better.”

And Alexei:

“More than anything, practice makes perfect,” Ramirez said. “The more you practice, the better you get.”
