Default Rollins says Sox clubhouse was in "Disarray"

I can't say anything here comes as a surprise

So in other words, Rollins is saying water is wet.

As I said previous threads, keeping Robin in 2016 made zero sense when you had the man you wanted for the job already.

Having the worst Sox manager in their history for the last 5 years didn't help, the man was way in over his head, add KW to the mix along with the 2 malcontents and we had chaos at the beginning of the 2016 season. When you think about it, with a divided clubhouse starting the season, it was a miracle that the Sox had the second best record in MLB by mid May but then the Ides came.

Losing Drake as the real leader hurt the team more than we will ever know.

The way he said it, and you have to respect the opinion of a guy like Rollins, was that guys like Sale, Eaton were very outspoken, but he mentions "they are in better places now"... which may be a shot at how bad the front office is with Kenny. It is no secret Kenny and the players pretty much hate each other.

Any Sox fan who says they're surprised by this has head their head in the sand for the last 5 years. This organization has been a total joke.

Agreed. When I listened to this, I took it as an indictment of Kenny Williams more than anything.

Rollins should just shut up and retire.

I don't see why what he said should receive that response.

The washed up bum shouldn't have even made the team last year, and he's talking about the clubhouse after getting fired in June. The Sox should have started Saladino at SS last year, and then moved him to second once Anderson was called up in June.

Agree with you that Rollins was a wasted move, Saladino should have been the starter at SS last year. Disagree on calling Rollins a bum.

Great player with Phillies, split Clemente Award with Paulie in 2014, but should retire or at least shut up about his 2 plus months with Sox. What did he make 2 million last year for 2 months of mediocre work?

His performance with the team has no bearing on the validity of his opinions of his time with the team.
