The Pirates video. Dynamic pricing. Pushing Nancy out. I could go on and on. I guess it boils down to how you think the Sox are overall run as an organization. If you think they're doing a good job overall then yeah, it probably doesn't bug you, and that's fine. But for people who see a consistent series of mistakes, it's maybe just another in a long line.

Oh, and I will also say that I think the stripe does make a difference. I personally think the pants and jersey do look worse with only a black stripe. If you look around the league, most teams that have some kind of stripe or piping running down their pant legs go with more than one color. There's a reason they do that. It just looks better.
That pretty much hits the nail on the head.

I suspect that you are talking about the red piping that the White Sox had on their uniforms in the 1950s, I SUSPECT the reason for that was because starting in the 1920s the White Sox incorporated red into their color scheme. So I think the White Sox were using their traditional colors and pretty much copying the look of the Yankees uniform. I think red is the most commonly used color in the uniform history of the White Sox.

Go Sox!!!
