Ha! Fat chance Sox ownership will do that. They'd sooner blame the fans for not supporting the team enough that admit that they're accountable for the Dunn fiasco, cut their losses and eat his contract.

Oct. 2014 (the end of Dunn's contract) seems like it's years away right now.

White Sox Baseball
# of teams with a longer playoff drought = 3:
San Diego (2006), Miami (2003), Seattle (2001)

# of teams with fewer playoff appearances since 1995 = 5:
Kansas City* (2), Toronto** (1), Miami (2), Washington (2), Milwaukee (2)

# of Sox seasons in the this decade that were arguably dismal failures = 4:
2011, 2013, 2014, 2015

Conclusion: Blame Sox fans for not showing up to enough games

* back to back AL Champs, WS Champs
** advanced to ALCS this year
