He feels that fielding, base running, the fundamentals and maybe pitching are being overlooked all because a guy "can hit."

The Sox have also gone through a slew of minor league managers over the past decade (they recently fired three and re-assigned Bobby Thigpen back to being a pitching coach) which doesn't help continuity or a "White Sox way" of playing the game at all levels, from rookie ball to the major leagues.

And sometimes talent they thought they could sign and don't like Bobby Seay would have still turned out to be a bust..........
