View Full Version : Who's to blame for 'recent' organizational failures?

Over the past, say 5-7 years the sox have had some trouble building a COMPLETE team. They may have the talent, but they fail late in the season, or maybe they are just awful. Many people in the organization have been replaced to try and locate the problem, but who's behind all of the problems, b/c I still don't see a solid team. It couldn't all be Reinsdorf, or could it. One trend was for pitchers who were traded to the sox to mysteriously turn, well, much worse than they were when they came. But firing Nardi Contreres didn't much help. We've lost Nardi, Ron Schuller, Manuel, and tons of other organizational pieces and players. Who's the germ in the White Sox club? Could it be the fans, who don't come to the park and support the team?

How is Jerry Manuel not on this list? His "sleep now, make poor decisions later" approach killed us last year. Two games in particular ended the season the Jose Paniagua game and the Neal Cotts game, after those two gaffes I knew we were never going anywhere with that chump.
