Who wants to start?

Grievance: There's been a lot of sound and fury over the past two months, which to some has signified huge leaps backwards. To me it seems like we have gone neither forward nor backward. All the sound and fury has signified NOTHING! This means we can look forward to another crummy 2nd place, 5 games out by end of Sept.

I have two main grievances:

1) We Have been downgraded SIGNIFIGANLTY with both our starting and relief pitching. No additions whatsoever!

2) We still haven't even heard the slightest little whisper about acquiring a left handed bat or any speed on the basebaths. Not only have we not gone out and gotten anything....we haven't heard one friggin' rumor. NONE!

We need JR to take a dirt nap (if you know what I mean)....ASAP!

I just assumed the front office was busy planning for printing the playoff and World Series tickets after the Miles/Uribe trade.

Grievance: Media reports rarely distinguish: (1) "signings" which simply avoid arbitration or amount to exercising a contract option, and (2) signing or failing to re-sign an actual free agent.

Second place in 2004 seems like a dream right now.

I will Air my Grievance. Why the h*** are we sticking to this
FOOLISH plan regarding our payroll? When we see Good Players being signed everywhere else, particularly 8 miles north?
THAT TEAM is RE-LOADING while were standing still. That team
is going for the KILL and for the White Sox jugular .........
they have Filled every single hole and will now soon get IRod cheap ..... :angry:

I'd like to take the Festivus Pole and shove it right up JR's...
That would be Festivus for the rest of us.

My grievance? What's the big secret?

Its been obvious who the Cubs want. They "leak" to the media. The White Sox maintain silent running-barely detectable by sonar.

And if I had my way, you'd need sonar to detect ANY paying customers, other than the Uribe family, in the BIG BLUE SEA of seats

It occurred to me after starting this thread that pretty much every hour of every day it's Festivus on this site! Does the airing of grievances ever stop? :smile:

Anyway, let's turn it over to management, whose feats of strength have so far been underwhelming. Where have you gone, KW?
