If you are a Chicago White Sox and are reading this, I want to remind you that the White Sox do not care about you.
In fact, the White Sox have never cared about you.
2005 was the only time that the White Sox were able to hide their blatant disregard for their fanbase because they were able to find the right band of misfits at the right time to win a World Series.
That was the last time that the White Sox have experienced the rare sensation of happiness.
2023 was meant to be a happy time for the White Sox as the team completed their rebuild with them becoming perennial World Series contenders for multiple seasons. Instead, the rebuild was a failure and the White Sox are leaking the news that they are upset.
Even if the White Sox are having “internal meetings” to discuss what went wrong, there is no reason why they should be trusted with fixing this mess.
But, the White Sox don’t want you to look at that.
The Chicago White Sox are not ruling out the idea of a potential move out of state.
Instead, White Sox leaked the news of a possible relocation. Crain’s Chicago Business reports that the White Sox would be open to relocating as they ponder life after their current lease for Guaranteed Rate Field.
The report throws out the idea of the White Sox moving out of the city and to a suburb but also does not discard the notion that the team could move to Nashville, Tennessee.
The move would be the final middle finger from the team to their fanbase.
While the White Sox hat has been a pop culture anchor, the White Sox team is far from it. The White Sox’s demographic is the South Side of Chicago. If the White Sox pull a vanishing act and disappear, their fanbase will not be on the search.
Perhaps, that is what is needed. A clean break for all parties involved.
