Chicago is a big market, the White Sox play in Chicago, a big market team should never be in a rebuilding mode.
The trouble is that JR and company have for the most part down through the years run the team more like the Royals than the Yankees, Dodgers or Red Sox.
In over 30 years of ownership how many super star free agents have they signed? How many big market teams would have let Buerhle walk?
This mindset has led to teams that once in awhile win the division and one year caught lightning in a bottle. I'm getting old, I'd like to see us in the WS a couple more times.
Coming up to bat for our White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.
