This has been a toying and taxing baseball season for the Chicago White Sox. Every time they seemed to be pulling it together, they fell apart. Every time they seemed out of it, a glimmer of hope would appear. The seesaw swinging above and below an even record left the fanbase feeling abused, dejected, but still in love. We love the Sox, but we made them hit us. Or we fell down some stairs. Either way, we need therapy or an article in Cosmo to help us regain our self worth.
So who’s the abuser? Who has put us in the panicky state of doubt, mistrust, and unwarranted hope? Only one man has consistently and incessantly demanded it’s him: Ozzie Guillen. He said it in 2004, he said it in 2006 and 2009. Last April, he even flat out stated that he should be fired. At this point, it’s not a bad idea.
It’s the Time of the Season.
