Enough with the Negative Crap
OK, as you can see by the title, I have had more then enough of the negative bitching and I reading the facts that are incorrect and the fact that people are complaining without checking things first.
Robin – His contract is through the end of 2016. Remember one thing kids, ROBIN is NOT on the field, you want to fire anyone, fire the team. Yes it is Robin who inspires and looks after things but this is how Robin gets things done. All he can do is to guide the boys, it is up to them to get the job finished in the end.
There are 2 players who are still being paid out on the payroll. Dayan viciedo and Jeff Keppinger.
John Danks contract is from 2012 to 2016 for $65M . He has a NO trade clause, in 2014 he could have blocked trades to , Baltimore, Oakland, Washington and Toronto.
We have David Robertson until 2018 for a cool $45M, Alexei Ramirez we have til the end of the season with an option for 2016
We only have Jeff Samardzjia for this season at $9.8M We avoided arbitration but, the talk went away of him wanting to go free agent next year for now but I would love to be able to keep him.
Jose Abreu is a White Sox until 2019. There are other award bonuses included, selection to the All Star Game.
Chris Sale in the office until 2017 with options for 2018 and 2019. He also has bonuses in place with the Cy Young award and All Star Game.
Adam Eaton as we all know just signed a new contract. He is a Sox until 2019 with options for 2020 and 2021. He also has bonuses listed for MVP voting and all.
A lot of the guys listed are only here through 2015. Tyler Flowers and Gordon Beckham to just a couple.

You guys seem to think that the constant change-up and all will get us wins but there are also other factors like stability. You all want the perfect 2005 World Series team and nothing less will do. Each year the boys have to learn how to play together, to jell and to trust each other on the field, to get that perfect Rack’em up, or safely steal 2nd base.
Have any of you bothered to look at the stats from ONE YEAR AGO today.
May 17, 2014 the White Sox were 21 wins with 23 loses. .477% and EIGHT games out.
May 17, 2015 The White Sox are 17 wins and 17 loses .500% and only 5 games out. (Waiting for the outcome of the Tigers game)
The boys are actually in better shape than this time last year.
Next time you want to have a complaint, have the balls to back it up.
