  1. I am 65. Lifelong Sox fan. I'm as pissed off about this season and this GM hire as anyone. But you don't just stop being a fan of a team you have loved your whole life. I will give Getz a chance to show who he is and what he can do. But there better be noticeable positive changes very quickly.
  2. JR is pushing 90 yrs old. He is not changing or caring about anyone else opinion. That is how 99% of old people are. They aren't interested at all in any kind of change. He is definately looking to sell the team and he was forced to fire RH and KW because he was convinced that keeping them would not allow him to get the maximum amount of money for the team. And money rules his world. If this Getz hire comes about all Sox fans need to cancel season tickets if they have them. They need to not support the team in any way until JR is no longer the owner. I'm a life long Sox fan. It will be hard and it will suck. But I'm done supporting an owner who could care less about me as a fan and could care less about winning.
  3. Hire Theo Epstein and give him complete control. Pay him whatever it takes.
  4. Now go after Aaron Boone as soon as the Yankees let him go!
  5. Keep it up boys! one more loss towards that coveted 100 loss season.
  6. Grifol said he knows what good culture looks like. How? Where? The KC Royals?
  7. It doesn't matter what RH says about anything. He is as big a part of the problem as anyone or anything. Same can be said about KW and JR. Until they are all gone nothing with the Sox will change. The friggen culture can't change until all the current leadership is gone.
  8. We all know this. All you have had to do is watch this team the last 2 years to see that Eloy and Moncada are lazy players who are constantly hurt. That Grandal is washed up and can barely move behind the plate anymore. This is why it is more than frustrating for us Sox fans. It is and has been obvious.
  9. This is front page on ESPN.com. He isn't saying anything most of us have been saying for awhile now. The lousy culture and lack of any leadership are the the biggest problems in the Sox organization. The new manager was supposed to help change this but he doesn't have the personality or experience to do it. The players are walking all over him just like they did with TLR. You need rules and you need your players to make sure they are followed. I'm a huge Michigan State BB fan and their coach Tom Izzo always says that when your best players are your hardest workers then the rest of the team will follow. When have the Sox had that? Losing has just become acceptable. When have any of the players come out and said dammit I'm sick of losing! No one says anything. TA, Moncada, Vaughn, Jimenez, Robert, Cease, not one of them is a strong voice and or a leader. Hopefully this article will expose the Sox for the joke of an organization they are and just maybe force some positive change. At least we can hope. Because without hope what is there?
  10. I'm sorry but as long as RH is making these deals I will have no faith in them working out. He should of been fired after last season and for sure fired at the all star break. The fact he is still employed and making these deals tells you he will indeed be back next season.
  11. I love the White Sox but I hate absolutely everything about this team and FO right now. That's quite the conundrum.
  12. I have said it over and over. Owning this team is nothing more than an investment to JR. As long as the value of the team keeps going up he could care less if they win or lose. If he cared TLR would of never been hired and RH would of been fired after last season. We all know we as Sox fans are screwed until JR no longer owns any part of this team. And even then it will all depend on who takes over.
