Got tickets to the game Sunday, wouldn’t be attending if it wasn’t with my grade school friends, after this one I’m done until major changes happen with the organization. Look for my signs in the RF stands.

1990-2008 or 1990-2012 were "pretty pretty good."

Still consistently underachieving JR's stated goal of second place every season to keep fans interested/engaged, at least from 2013-2022, on average.

All Time White Sox 122 Year History

Fans born after October 1, 1967 have never lived during the best ten decade stretches in White Sox history. Eight of the ten included the Go-Go Sox Era.

Best Decade Stretches in White Sox History

  • 1-4. .568 1955-1964; 1954-1963; 1953-1962; 1952-1961 (162 Game Equivalent 92-70)
  • 5-6. .567 1956-1965; 1951-1960  (162 Game Equivalent 92-70)
  • 7. .563 1957-1966 (162 Game Equivalent 91-71)
  • 8. .560 1956-1967 (162 Game Equivalent 91-71)
  • 9. 553 1911-1920  (162 Game Equivalent 90-72)
  • 10. .551 1901-1910  (162 Game Equivalent 89-73)

Fans born after October 4, 1972 have never lived during the best generational stretches in White Sox history. Six of the ten included the Go-Go Sox Era, the remaining four included the first three White Sox American League Pennant winning teams (1906, 1917 & 1919).

Best Twenty Year (Generation) Stretches in White Sox History

  • 1. .558 1901-1920 (162 Game Equivalent 90-72)
  • 2. .550 1949-1968 (162 Game Equivalent 89-73)
  • 3. .549 1950-1969 (162 Game Equivalent 89-73)
  • 4. .548 1951-1970 (162 Game Equivalent 89-73)
  • 5-6. 547 1904-1923; 1902-1921 (162 Game Equivalent 89-73)
  • 7-8. .546 1953-1972; 1952-1971 (162 Game Equivalent 88-74)
  • 9. .545 1948-1967 (162 Game Equivalent 88-74)
  • 10. .544 1903-1922 (162 Game Equivalent 88-74)

Nine of the ten of worst decades (.422-.450) in White Sox history occurred between 1922-1939 (1941-1950, 9th worst, was the exception).

All eleven of the worst generational stretches in White Sox history (.447 - .463) also occurred after the Black Sox Scandal (1920-1951).

 

Jerry Reinsdorf Era

85-86 win carrot seasons defined the best six Reinsdorf decades, all occurring between 1990-2009. 

Best Decades during the Reinsdorf Carrot Era

  • 1. .529 2000-2009 (162 Game Equivalent 86-76)
  • 2-3. .528 1991-2000; 1990-1999 (162 Game Equivalent 86-76)
  • 4. .527 1997-2006 (162 Game Equivalent 85-77)
  • 5-6. .526 1999-2008; 1992-2001 (162 Game Equivalent 85-77)

84-85 win carrot seasons defined the best six Reinsdorf generational stretches, all occurring between 1989-2012. 

Best Generational stretches during the Reinsdorf Carrot Era

  • 1-2. .523 1991-2010; 1990-2009 (162 Game Equivalent 85-77)
  • 3. .521 1989-2008 (162 Game Equivalent 84-78)
  • 4-5. .519 1993-2012; 1987-2006 (162 Game Equivalent 84-78)
  • 6. .518 1992-2011 (162 Game Equivalent 84-78)

You likely intuitively knew GM Rick Hahn was part of most (6) or all (10) seasons during the five worst decades and generational stretches during the Reinsdorf Era.

Worst Decades (33 possible periods) during the Jerry Reinsdorf Era 

  • 1. .459 2010-2019 (162 Game Equivalent 74-88)
  • 2-3. .463 2011-2020; 2009-2018 (162 Game Equivalent 75-87)
  • 4. .469 2013-2022 (162 Game Equivalent 76-86)
  • 5. .472 2012-2021 (162 Game Equivalent 76-86)

All five of the worst generational (20 year) stretches (23 possible periods) during the Reinsdorf Era (1981-2022) occurred between 1998-2022 (.490-495).

Sweep the Tigers, then go 2-5 vs the Astros and Guardians. Right back to .500.

11-8 vs. the so-called easy schedule.  Only requires a three game sweep of the Tigers on the road…most were pretty close in predicting roughly 8-11 through 11-8.

I remember the 1990 team as one of my favorites. Their leading home run hitter was Carlton Fisk with 18. They had no superstars; Frank Thomas had been just called up in August. Their motto was "Doing the Little Things." Little things were advancing runners, getting runners home from third with less than two outs, turning the double play. They won 94 which was good for the third best record in baseball. The White Sox need to do the little things if they want to get over .500.

I don’t think it’s a matter of little things, big things, or medium things.

It’s literally anything besides shitting the bed that is needed from this group
