The Chicago White Sox may or may not be owned by the Reinsdorf family for a long time but if they eventually had a player owner, they need the right guy.
The Chicago White Sox has seen some mixed reviews surround their owner Jerry Reinsdorf. He has been known to be cheap at times but there is no denying the success that he has had in his life. He has also brought a total of seven championships to Chicago through two franchises (Chicago Bulls). Not many owners in history can say that they are a multi-time owner with multiple franchises. He hasn’t been the perfect owner for either team but there have been some good times.
Well, if there was ever an ownership change on the south side, it would be interesting to see what type of route they go in. If they went the route of a player owning the team, it should probably be one who can do what is necessary to make sure this team has the tools it needs to be successful. Owners need to commit to winning just as much as management and players do. To have a successful organization, you need contributions from everyone and that starts at the top.
There have been some rumors surrounding the New York Mets ownership. The Wilpon family has had a lot of criticism from their fans about the way they own the team for a long time now but that might all be over soon. It does appear as if they are going to have an owner change in the not so distant future.
The rumors are that former Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers, and New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez is considering it. That doesn’t go over well with Mets fans because of his love and contributions to the rival Yankees. Well, of course, that got us thinking, which former players would it be hard to swallow watching own the Chicago White Sox?
