Just curious, have any of you who emailed or called the Sox gotten a response?

I went through several different channels, and haven't heard a word back. I'm expecting it to stay that way. 

They don't care about us as fans. What more evidence do we need?

Does LaRussa honestly strike anybody as the type that would "do the right thing" for others and actually resign?

No. But then, stranger things have happened. I think that this all is on Jerry once again. He and LaRussa should have a heart to heart chat and Tony should step away and get cleaned up. He has larger issues going on with himself than managing a baseball team. He is an alcoholic and that in itself should mean something to both he and Reinny.

The crazy thing is it's not like this is the end of the controversy - it's the beginning.  This is not just fading away, it will rear its head again at the end of the proceeding.  "Wait it out" is all well and good if Tony beats the charge, but what if he doesn't?  Remember - this isn't a case where there's merely a breathalyzer refusal.  The police obtained a subpoena to draw his blood.  After obtaining (and presumably testing) his blood they decided to bring charges.  It doesn't look particularly good for TLR.  If they're going to hire him no matter what (which seems likely) they should just announce it now rather than letting this linger for months.

The next shoe to drop is the camera showing him saying something racist or sexist, etc. (not saying this happened, but would it shock you)

No I’m not and btw I’m not going to stop sharing Al’s Cheesy Beef’s tweets just because you don’t like the tweets. Just joking, going forward I’ll just post PortillosHamburger tweets. 😉

One thing to consider is Portillos follows Al’s cheesy lol don’t feel bad about sharing his stuff! If it wasn’t for you we would not know Portillos.

Contact the team and let them know.

My dad and I had a 10 game plan and we chose not to renew and I let Brooks Boyer know about it.  He surprisingly responded within a day.  He basically said "Not much I can say but I get it.  I get the frustration, the disappointment and understand why fans are shaking their heads."  And then he mentioned hopefully we can turn our attention to the field and the players.  He also thanked me for actually putting my name on it...I guess they get a lot of anonymous emails complaining?  I am sure this is going to be nightmare for him and others in the FO not named Reinsdorf.

Rick Hahn made a string of moves in the last 3 years that look very good. His next move should be to resign from the White Sox.

If he wants to stay in baseball, I'm sure he would have many opportunities. Being overruled by JR can't be fun. Before that it seemed

he would be overruled by KW. The 2 times I remember are the Semien ,Bassitt trade(kids for vet) and the Shields fiasco(kid for vet).

Both looked like KW moves to me.

I actually got a response back from my rep.

"Hey Nick, completely get where you're coming from, and we are taking all comments to share with upper management and leadership, so your thoughts will be heard.  Best, Alexis.

At some point you would think Tony would respect Jerry enough to step down.

You'd hope.......

LaRussa hasn't even reached out to team leaders; let alone the entire roster. Tony will get around to it in February.
