Seems like Sale is the only one who can thrive despite the overwhelming amount of suck Ventura pumps into this franchise.

Angry

A little late, but it's vent time:






Arguably the most disappointing team in White Sox history. I have never hated watching a team don the black and white as I do with this pathetic squad. So much talent. So much F*CKING talent! And somehow they use that talent sh*t the bed for 86 games.

How is it that you add Jeff Samardzija, Melky Cabrera, Adam LaRoche, David Robertson, Zach Duke, Avi Garcia and Carlos Rodon, and yet it yields you only a 3 game improvement? That essentially means each of those players accounted for less than half a win separately. That is unacceptable.

This season was the boiling point of 7 years...SEVEN YEARS, without a playoff birth. Which I'm sure most Sox fans could tolerate, because "hey, the Cubs still suck". Well guess what Kenny? Guess what Jerry? Rick? Robin? The Cubs don't suck anymore. They took an equally or less talented team than yours and won 21 more games than you.

Add to the fact that new additions the Cubs made actually improved and contributed to the winning product. What the hell did our new guys do? Absolutely NOTHING!

I don't expect a world series title every single season, or hell, I don't expect us to be consistent playoff contenders. But no playoffs for SEVEN YEARS!? 1 birth in a decade, 3 over the course of 20 years. We're basically talking 1 playoff appearance per 7 years. That is not acceptable.

This kind of stuff is reserved for expansion teams, but you're an ORIGINAL AMERICAN LEAGUE TEAM! Why not try acting like it?

Yeah kinda what I was thinking. But he's young and spoiled. I'm 50 and have seen 5 playoffs. I'd be thrilled with 1 out of 7 years.

Um yeah. I'm sorry, but there was guys on this team that played well under their capability. The Cubs were seen as good or slightly less talented than the White Sox going into the season. That's what good managing does for a team.

Chris Sale, Jose Abreu, Jose Quintana, Melky Cabrera, Avi Garcia, Jeff Samardzija, Carlos Rodon, there's quite a bit of talent on this squad.

That's where good managing can improve a teams chances of success (Cubs), and where bad managing can drastically hurt a teams chances (Sox).

There's a big reason why experts were picking the White Sox. Chemistry was an issue, but Ventura made so many grievous managing mistakes and overall was just an awful in-game and locker room manager. Nobody in that locker room bought into Ventura, because he's a horrible motivator and crappy manager. What's there to buy into? Madden on the other hand, has a history of turning a crappy team into a consistent playoff contender. Sound familiar?

The fact that he's coming back for another year after 3 losing seasons is just sickening.

Nope. Not even f'ing close. I admire the fact that you're a total homer and love your team but to say that the 2015 White Sox had as much or more talent than the 2015 Cubs is just dumb.
