Today during his postgame press conference, Jerry Manuel, folowing the 72nd game of his 6th season as manager of the White Sox made an important announcement. As of NOW, all White Sox players will be held responsible for executing fundamentals.

This is no joke. He actually said this.

This organizaation stinks from the top down.

I wonder just what exactly "held responsible" means?If it means benching a player because of STUPID at bats & bad fundamentals thats a problem because the WHOLE FREAKIN TEAM will have to sit.Ah,White Sox baseball,the ultimate in agrivation.

My first post here at WSI. I am so excited. I watched the poor play on WGN today. What a pathetic display of inept fundamentals. I am sorry it took Manuel 60 games into the season to finally say something. Do you think he just realized what has been happening? :?:

We've heard these empty threats by Manuel before. Whenver he talks tough, the fans and players know it is an empty threat. He won't be doing anything different than he did before.

I am quite glad Reinsdorf enforced the "boot camp" mentality that he promised at the end of '02 as far as fundamentals go

:jerry
"Starting today, I will limit the amount of starting lineups I use to 5 different ones per week and I promise to use the same lineup back to back at least once a month. This is how I plan on making myself accountable for manager fundamentals."

Then performance means the poor performing manager must get benched too.

Pinch hitting Konerko for anyone is cause for a strait-jacket

Oh my God. If I were the manager, there would have been buffet tables flying in the clubhouse today.

Yeah, what the hell is this crap? Who does Manuel think Konerko is to allow him in the game, Royce?

He did say those who can't produce will be benched. That means he plans on putting three position players and a pitcher out there every day.

"And if that doesn't work, I'll hold my breath until I'm blue in the face. I'll stomp around the dugout muttering explative laden oaths, dagnabit. Why I'll drop one of those devastating tirades I use on umpires who disturb my sleep. I'll... I'll... I'll..."

(Jerry's head explodes and there is much rejoicing in Sox fandom)
