I will never cease to be amazed with how some people act like different people throughout time have ruined the former Roman empire that was the White Sox. For some people it was the Reinsdorf group. Some it was Veeck. Some it's Brooks Boyer.
The Sox are probably more popular now than any other time in my lifetime other than 83, 93 and 2005, but that is never credited to anyone. Many fans just want to act like if the Sox didn't do obviously stupid things like change a stripe on the pants they'd easily be the most popular team in America with 10 straight World Series titles and the Yankees would quake in the boots at the mere mention of white socks.
