In the 32 years that current ownership has run the White Sox the average yearly record is:
(Remember games were wiped out by the labor impasses in 1981, 1994 and they got a late start in 1995, that's why the numbers don't add up exactly to 81-81.)
Yeah. It's sad, but the truth. As long as they are a decent team and attendance with programming metrics stay still, management is fine with it.
They didn't invest heavily in scouting/development after winning the title seven years ago. They won't do it now with the increased checks. That strategy would have gotten them some depth to win a few of those pennant races.
