Hats off to all of the TV and radio affiliates who aired White Sox games in 2016.  Hopefully Ft. Wayne and Des Moines (2 TV markets that aired Sox games in 2015) can be added in 2017.  The affiliate at Decatur, IL (Channel 23 WBUI) really needs to get it’s act together next season, or WGN Sports needs to find a better station in Central Illinois.  Only 10 Sox games were aired on WBUI, but the same channel aired the complete package of 45 Cubs games.  Apparently the decision maker down there is a Cubs fan who does not like the White Sox!
