I'm also thinking JR is getting old and has lost his zeal for running the franchise, he has been fighting a losing battle for the hearts and minds of the Chicago baseball fan for over 30 years and last year might have really hurt when your team could not even draw 2 million while being in first place for 100 days and the other team who was one of the worst teams in MLB out drew you by 800,000 fans.
I've been around this community (WSI) since I started writing for it in 2002.
I can't recall any period where there appears to be less interest in the team than the past few years. I mean look at the post game threads for one example.
