    Ignoring the latent sexism in the OP, Steve Stone is the problem in the broadcast booth, not Jason.  If you listen to the guy with anyone else, he is 10 times better than he is with Stone.  There is just zero chemistry between these two guys.

    Do you actually listen to any of the broadcasts featuring these two in the booth?  They have exhibited extraordinary chemistry in their broadcasting relationship, particularly in the past few years over the “rebuild” when the on-field product has been anything close to desirable.  They have both been vocal in their agreed-upon view of the team’s potential going forward.

    BTW - anyone in agreement with SS2K5 that there is “just zero chemistry between” Jason & Stoney?

    See there's the difference.  Why spend 40 years angry at the owner? You see this as important.  I see it as a waste of time.

    Set my feelings aside.  Again, 40 year anniversary of the guy as the owner of the team we love.  Where’s the outpouring of love and appreciation for the guy?  Where is it?

    Bill Veeck, with far fewer years as owner even through two stints as owner, is far more beloved by the fan base than this owner.  Why is that?  

    How can one spend four decades in this kind of position and yet have near-to-zero in terms of fan love?

    right?  dude is just a little spark plug.  When they traded for him I figured he'd be out of baseball in 5 years and that he couldn't play any position, which is why he had so many.  Turns out he can actually play almost every position.

    As a super sub, he’ll be a valuable component in the upcoming run this team is getting ready to embark upon over the next several years.

    Well, who knows, right?  Maybe the honorable Chairman is just disappointed that something of the magnitude of a pandemic has overshadowed what would have been a magnificent celebration this year throughout Chicagoland of his 40th anniversary as owner of our Sox. 

    With the cult-like following he's built with the fan base over the past four decades through his tireless dedication to the fan experience, there undoubtedly would have been ticker tape parades held down Michigan Avenue in his honor, a "Jerry Reinsdorf Appreciation Day" dedicated by the governor, Jerry Reinsdorf t-shirts and coffee mugs distributed throughout - it would have been a whole year of one exciting event after another to gratefully thank this man for all he has done for and brought to this franchise these past 40 years.  

    Maybe Year 41 is when we can all get around to doing just that.
