With the White Sox missing out on superstar free agents, some fans have begun to lose faith in the organization and their rebuilding efforts.
2019 got off to a rough start for the White Sox and their fans. The front office didn’t shy away from rumors linking them to being interested in signing Manny Machado and it ultimately cost them. Unfortunately for most fans, the Sox allowing the San Diego Padres to swoop in and sign the superstar free agent left a bad taste in their mouths.
Many White Sox fans have been vocal about their displeasure with the front office and could be losing faith in the current rebuild on the south side. Despite the progress made by some Sox prospects over the past year, many fans are ignoring what this rebuild can ultimately produce in the coming years all because of the Sox not signing a top free agent.
There will be other times where the White Sox front office can sign free agents. However, there might not be another time where two 26-year-old superstar free agents are available to sign and would fit in the plans for a Sox rebuild. For fans that believe the Sox front office lied to them about signing Machado or Bryce Harper, there are better days ahead for this franchise.
This upcoming season will possibly be another losing year for the Sox, but there is still hope for their current rebuild. There aren’t many reasons for any Sox fan to lose faith in the organization’s rebuild, but if they are close to losing hope, here are some reasons to remain hopeful for the future.
