White Sox Get Screwed In Best MLB Cap Rankings
Cardboard Connection recently ranked every cap in baseball from best to worst. I always say that making lists like this -- and I've been known to dabble myself -- is a worthwhile and fun exercise, but it's totally stupid to argue about this stuff. It's all very subjective, of course, and you can usually go a million different ways and still not be wrong. This is not one of those times, though. Today, someone got it wrong.
The Yankees come in at number one on CC's list, and you won't get any complaints here about that. After all, I *was* Fred Durst for Halloween. That logo is the epitome of success, of money, of power, of being on top. It's a totally legit choice for No. 1. My beef, however, comes from the White Sox's placement. They finished at No. 10, and third in their division.

Without a doubt the scariest and most intimidating hat in baseball, it instantly conjures memories of scary people like Skeletor from He-Man (Masters of the Universe) and Albert Belle.
See, he's right; I couldn't agree with that assessment more. The White Sox logo is tough as nails. But shouldn't that mean it's at least in the top five? Is the point of color patters and logos in sports not to intimidate? I'm biased, but I always thought the Sox's logo was the coolest and toughest in all of sports. It's like the exact opposite of everything in the world that bleeds Cubbie blue, which is exactly how it should be.
Behind the Twins? The Royals? The Brewers? That's just insane.
To hammer home my point that the White Sox's logo is the best logo, here's a quick photo gallery of some of the coolest mothertruckers in the world reppin' Sox gear. Dre knows what's up.
Ever seen Obama or Tyler, The Creator rocking a Colorado Rockies hat? Doubtful.
In case you're wondering, the Cubbies came in at No. 21. They also have lots of celebrity fans. This guy knows what I'm talking about:
