Someone is going to get fired.

Recommended Posts

 

It's one thing to lose... losing by the average score of 9-2 over the last week is a profound level of futility.

If this continues at all - someone is going to get axed.

Hopefully it is everyone. Baseball Ops overhaul.

I literally don't think there is anything (short of a scandal) Hahn or KW could do to get fired. Their on field results are completely indefensible. They are employed because Jerry likes them. That's it.

Ricky will be the sacrificial lamb....and that's ok.  They need a new voice in clubhouse.

Omar...your table's ready.

Yet another guy who loves the bunt.  Oh boy!

No one gets fired if they are loyal to Jerry (see Kenny, Hahn, Cooper, GarPax).

Reinsdorf is not a sportsman.

He's a businessman who has figured out a way to be profitable without being competitive - to the absolute delight of his investors.

His shtick is the circus of sports.

Tasty but colon-clogging food; fireworks, give-a-ways, helium-filled Bennie the Bulls, Kids dancing to YMCA ..all to distract from why most folks go to a sports event - to see talented athletes play the game.

He's P.T  Barnum 2.0 and he's master at it.

Kenny-Hahn and Gar-Pax have jobs as long as they continue to do his bidding.

Considering the low attendance, this slightly hyperbolic.

A little.  Another big reason they are making so much money is because they aren’t spending much of it on payroll.  Plus, all the shared MLB income.

Why do people want Omar? From what I've heard he is another old school type who will be out of touch with todays game. Apparently he is even more fond of bunting than Ricky.

No it's not.

The team is worth 1.6 billion.

But hey as long as fans continue to be apologists for this ownership, why should any thing change.

He makes money  despite the low attendance in baseball.

But he sells out UC nightly.

Sox and Bulls both near the bottom in payroll. Do your homework. Hyperbolic it ain't.

Yes.  Jerry is doing very well for himself tanking two professional sports teams into the ground.

Seems like a really long time since Coop fixed someone.  Maybe his methods don't translate as well as they once did.  These lopsided losses that are over in the early innings are really unwatchable. Between walking the world and taking forever between pitches...yet we have unlimited patience with one non performer after another.

We can't get 5 inning out of a starter without giving up 4 or 5 runs and the bullpen is just as bad.  Who is a fault if not the coaching?

My point was P.T. Barnum drew crowds.

You really do need a skipper who speaks Spanish. It's unfair to the guys who can't speak English if you have some stodgy old guy who can't speak Spanish (unless his name is Leyland or LaRussa). So bring Omar in now! Ricky is the scapegoat No. 1.

With regard to someone getting shitcanned, this organization needs an enema. One can only hope, but it is probably wishful thinking.

Stevenson is the only guy I can see them firing. I don't see Cooper or Renteria getting fired anytime during the season. And Cooper will have to "retire" or "part ways." We will not just fire him after him being here 15+ years.

Firing someone would be an admission of being wrong, something that takes the White Sox making a colossal blunder to ever admit . I have no doubt JR, KW and RH will pop off 9 or 10 years from now to point out how correct they were if Machado isn't still a big time player.

I know a lot of posters are sick of the Machado talk, but what a blunder. Not only does he immediately increase your talent level, it's a boost to everyone else on the roster who now knows the White Sox truly believe in them. A large part of the game is mental, and cheaping out on a big time player IMO may have taken the wind out of several other players' sails.
