Winning ALWAYS is the key to anything regarding a sports team in Chicago. That is absolutely 100% true. I just feel the other areas are important too, it's all part of the package and the Sox have failed in these areas a lot over the past 30 years.
There are other things the Sox can do better, I just don't think that anyone cares that somebody called the Sox Chicago's AL team 33 years ago...
I have a feeling if you walked around Chicago today and asked people, "What did Eddie Einhorn say about the Sox in 1980?" the response you would get are:
75% - Who is Eddie Einhorn?
24.9% - Who cares about 1980?
0.1% - Chicago's American League team
The Sox have plenty of on and off field challenges; that's not one of them.
