Since winning the 2005 World Series, the White Sox have been burned often. While they've been fearless in making high-profile moves, many of them - Manny Ramirez, Andruw Jones, Adam Dunn,Ken Griffey Jr. - haven't panned out. So after a disappointing 2011, the Sox cooled off this winter. In other words, they embraced rebuilding. First they traded combustible manager Ozzie Guillen to Miami. Next they allowed Mark Buehrle, their top pitcher and one of their most popular players, to exit via free agency.

The man they call "Magic Mike" has put some spell on Chicago. After fans cast a total of more than 3,600 votes on the RedEye Sports Facebook page last week, Fire forward Mike Magee emerged as the 2013 Chicago Sports Stud of the Year. The arrow's been pointing up for the Chicago-area native all season. Since being traded to the Fire early in the year, Magee scored 15 goals and notched four assists. He had a total of 21 goals in 2013 and was named MLS' most valuable player last month.

Now that the Blackhawks season is over, it's time for baseball season in Chicago to officially start. So here's a quick recap of the 2013 season. The Cubs and White Sox have played some games. The Cubs and White Sox have lost most games. A man named Brian Bogusevic is on the Cubs. But that doesn't mean the Sox and Cubs aren't worth watching. In fact, bad years are what make good years so enjoyable (in theory, for Cubs fans). And just because something is bad doesn't mean people don't want to see it. Just look at summer movies.

Another great year in Chicago sports is in the books. Also, another awful year for Chicago sports is in the books. Which means it's time to choose RedEye's Stud and Dud of the Year. As always, don't be shy about voting! STUDS Mike Magee, Fire The Chicago native almost singlehandedly cured the Fire's scoring woes, tallying 15 for Chicago and 21 for the season after starting the year in L.A.

We're heading into a nice, gray, murky area for the White Sox. Oh, it's so easy to get fooled. In fact, I'm in the process of fooling myself right now. Here's how it works. The Sox win a game or two, lose a game or two, then they sweep a really bad team like, say, the Cubs. So they've won like four straight, and you think "OK, here we go, this is it, and they're making their run. " And then you strap it on … and then they're back to .500. This pattern has been cited by local doctors as dangerous to your digestive system and sleeping patterns.

Robert DeNiro said it best in "Goodfellas": "It's gonna be a good summa!" He was referring to your 2012 White Sox. Game on, red-hot winners of eight straight. First, no wimps please. For those concerned about Chris Sale's pitch count, stick it in your you-know-what. He's a kid. He's fine. And besides, if his arm falls off, the Sox will reclaim him and rehab him - it's what they're best at. Questions? See Philip Humber and Jake Peavy. In fact, I can't wait to see Sale after the arm surgery.

Major League Baseball unveiled the 2012 All-Star teams on Sunday, and while Chicago will be well-represented, we can't help but question some of its decisions. (Don't even get us started on how the White Sox's Alex Rios andA.J. Pierzynski were snubbed). Some of the Chicago selections look good on paper, but are they really All-Stars? Here's what we think about whether they're stars or strikes.   Adam Dunn, White Sox: Strike We know he's lit up the scoreboard MUCH more often than last season; 24 home runs and 58 RBIs are mighty impressive.

Stay hurt,A.J. Pierzynski. Stay angry. We need you like that. It's going to be fun on the South Side. I was there to watch the Sox club the Rangers 19-2. I was concerned they would run out of fireworks. Thank God Ron Washington snubbed A.J. for an All-Star spot. Spend the second half making everyone pay, because here's the real deal with the White Sox: Nobody really likes you, and nobody really cares about you. And I mean that in the best way possible. They've always had to work really hard for our affection.

Congratulations, you've almost made it to football season. To get you through the last stretch of unwatchable baseball, I'm going to tease you with a special "visions of the future" column because the present is unbearable. WARNING: The future will also likely be unbearable, but let's pretend. Summer 2015. Your Chicago Bulls have signed LeBron James and have wrapped up an NBA title. Nice job, Gar Forman. "The Decision II" rocked. In addition to yet another Stanley Cup visit to Wrigley (three straight, these are getting old)

See, here's where they get you. For the Cubs and Sox, it's pretty apparent the sale of the year is here. Everyone must go, and for the Cubs, that means the old favorites like Matt Garza and Alfonso Soriano. However, they're going on a teaser run here, showing off for the fans and the scouts. For the fans: Don't fall for it. We need to send these guys on their way. For the players, I'm warning you once and I'm being nice: When your turn comes, kindly get the hell out of here.

First off, some very good news. As of today, there are about 35 days until football preseason games get started. 35 days! That's a walk in the park! Heck, CEOs go on vacation for 35 days! Together, you and I can do this. Because the bad news is we're going to have to wade through the sludge of Chicago baseball to get there. Time to sell! It's the Fourth of July Sale here in Chicago! Carlos Marmol, gone! (Thank you). Both teams should be sending thank-yous to the Blackhawks.

Can anyone on the White Sox or Cubs be this season's Philip Humber? Even though the journeyman pitcher tossed one of the most unlikely of the 23 perfect games in major league history for the Sox in 2012, the odds still are astronomical - about 1 in 20,000 - and the North Siders have yet to notch one in their long and storied history. 2K Sports has us thinking about it because the company is in the midst of its Perfect Game Challenge, in which gamers have logged more than 500,000 attempts at flawless pitching performances on "MLB 2K13" to win a piece of a $1 million...

White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham didn't get a ring on the field in 2012. Once the season ended, however, that was a different story. "I got engaged [to "Amazing Race" contestant Brittany Fletcher], so that was kind of a big one," he said. Beckham and other Sox players converged on the Palmer House Hilton last weekend for the team's annual fan extravaganza, Sox Fest. In addition to getting engaged, the Georgia native spent a lot of time hunting. "I mainly like to hunt deer, so that's obviously a fall sport," Beckham said.

Opening Day in baseball is all about optimism. Even the Cubs, who lost 101 games in 2012, and the White Sox, who collapsed in September after leading the AL Central Division most of last season, can look like juggernauts after one game. We're celebrating the return of Chicago's boys of summer with our favorite firsts from Monday's 2013 curtain raisers. First double-take Yes, that guy starting at second base for the Cubs looks familiar. Brent Lillibridge is the player whose trade from the White Sox last season caused a 5-year-old boy to cry on a video his dad posted on YouTube.

There is something about White Sox opening day each year that leaves me in complete Soxtasy, a made-up word in Soxman's dictionary used to describe the sense of anticipation, elation and renewed proclamation of undying loyalty to the team I love. Anticipation in knowing that the first snap of Chris Sale's fastball, swing (or swing and miss) by Adam Dunn or put-out by Tyler Flowers forecasts what Sox fans can expect to see over the 161 games that follow. Anticipation over seeing what's new at U.S. Cellular Field teases my imagination while putting my salivary glands into...
