Despite winning two in a row to salvage a split with the Detroit Tigers, it is obvious that the 2022 season has been a disaster so far for the Chicago White Sox. They came into the year with World Series-level expectations and are under .500 past the halfway mark.
There have been a lot of reasons for this horrid start. For one, there weren’t enough moves made during the offseason. A team like this should not have some of the players starting that it does. There is still plenty of room for roster upgrades. That would have to fall on Rick Hahn.
The players also deserve a fair amount of blame. They have not lived up to the expectations that they came into the year with. Nobody has gone above and beyond to see the White Sox win more games. There isn’t really anyone outside of three or four players that deserves no blame.
Then there are the issues that come from manager Tony La Russa. Those seem to be the most important because he is supposed to be the guy who gets the most out of the team. His credentials suggest that he should be much better than he has been.
The new rumor out there is that the White Sox have some problems in their clubhouse. This is coming from USA Today’s Bob Nightengale who is considered to be one of baseball’s top insiders. He went on the radio (670 The Score) and said some things that are not good to hear.
The Chicago White Sox seem to be having some clubhouse issues right now.
It is honestly devastating if it is true. This is a team that is so talented but they can’t get it together. If they ever want to win, they do need to come together as a team and play the right way. They also need a manager that can lead them out of this.
Tony La Russa doesn’t seem to have the clubhouse anymore so what good does he do for the team anymore? Most of his in-game decisions are brutal so there is literally nothing left for him as the manager if this is true. Before the year, this clubhouse loved each other.
If they don’t get it all together both on and off the field, they are going to miss the playoffs which will be brutal for that organization. The main reason this is devastating is that after hearing this news, it feels impossible for them to win enough.
