Well, MLB Network's peek into the finer aspects of our beloved Chicago White Sox has come to an end. While, to the casual viewer, "The Club" may have simply been a retrospective glance into the front office of a, particularly hectic, MLB font office, it gave us die-hards a first hand look at how the business that we dedicate our entire summer to, gets things done. Take the jump with me and let's see what can be taken from the series for White Sox fans.
- JIm Thome was, essentially, left out to make room for Randy "Cant find the plate" Williams. While this move was obviously asinine, the blame lies with KW. Even though Ozzie preached the idea that RW> Gentleman Masher, Kenny allowed him to have his way even though he was obviously mistaken.
- Don Cooper/Jeff Cox are the cat's pajamas.
- Kenny and Co. decided that solidifying the back end of the rotation was more important than the elusive LH slugger. While the rationale adds up, the offense (aka the pariah of the 10' campaign) demands another move. Look for the August waiver-wire Kenny to show up and we'll see.
- Ozzie Guillen owns a sweet ass bicycle.
- Chris Sale is somewhat of douche nozzle. Ditch the bling, shut your mouth, and pitch; Well.
- The KW-Ozzie-Jerry matrimony needs to continue for, at the very least, several years to come.
If this ship sinks in the near future, I feel that the only position that needs a gut check is that of KW. Ozzie knows this game well enough, and has accomplished enough, to have earned his job. I'll give KW the benefit of the doubt for the time being, and foreseeable future, but if the necessities required to push this team to the next level aren't accomplished within the reasonable future, it's time to go another direction. Let us hope that said next move is forthcoming, and go-go you Chicago White Sox.
