Recommended to board that they sell after he passes:

After I'm gone, no one can fill my shoes. Sounds about right.

Is there a reason all of this stuff about JR's future involvement in the Sox is being put out in the press recently?

I don't remember it ever being that big of a deal in the past and it was pretty much assumed that he would keep the team until he passed right?

Guess I just find it strange.

The statement added that Reinsdorf, 77, "is happy to be going strong, and he plans to be around for a quite longer,'' reiterating that he planned to be at the 2033 Major League All-Star game.
Oh Mark Gonzalez... Can't even copy and paste from a statement without butchering it.

JR owns only a part of the Sox (what percentage I don't know) so when he passes on the other owners would probably buy his shares. The other option is for the whole group to sell.

White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf, who has run the club since 1981 and the NBA's Chicago Bulls since 1985, will be honored with the 2013 SBJ/SBD Lifetime Achievement Award during a ceremony at the Sports Business Awards in New York on Wednesday night.

White Sox clairfy Reindorfs' plans for future
On Tuesday, the White Sox made clear that the issue is yet not settled and is far, far from needing to be.
