ESPN+ grades White Sox an F for first month.

ESPN apparently not "real fans" of the Sox.

Classic case of "lazy analysis" that has them at anything lower than a B/B- with all the adversity TLR has already overcome to get to where he is today with this team.

Hasn’t TLR created a lot of the adversity himself with his many inexplicable and inexcusable on field decisions? Such as pitching to Buxton, hitting Leury 2 nd and 3rd, not pinch hitting Grandal for McGuire in a  game situation, punting second game of a DH fielding a triple AAA lineup, over resting the stars, not pinch hitting with the stars if they are not starting a game, and so on…

You will almost never hear the local Chicago media bring those things up, at least not challenging LaRussa directly in a post-game.

It has actually happened way more than it used to in the first month of this season.  Ozzie especially, but even Chuck at points.

Yeah, and the fact that TLR has had to overcome those stupid decisions means that he's overcome so much more adversity.

A TRUE fan would understand that.
