I don't mean to be picky, but whoever shows up at that place should get their asses kissed IMO with what they're forced to watch on the field. Anyone at that first game friday deserved a medal not the bum's rush.
It is bad right now. I can only hope that the Sox are more interesting after making some deadline deals. If fans could see some progress, that would help quite a lot.

Yep- and when you watch the Hawks go from where they were (pre-Rocky) to where they are today (not only winning, but their marketing & relationship with their fans), and you watch the Angels catch and surpass an iconic franshise like the Dodgers in the So CA market- the attitude and strategy of the White Sox ("this will always be a Cubs town", etc.") is even more frustrating.

Sox have cancelled Picnic in the Park and replaced it with a new event called Wild Pitches.

I read that last part wrong the first time and now am significantly more disappointed upon further reading.
