The White Sox manager quit because he valued money more than doing his job.
The Sox players quit because the manager said so, and the manager would know.
What a bad time to be a Sox fan.
But wait, it gets more embarrassing.
A.J. Pierzynski said he’s been known to have a drink in the clubhouse, and he wasn’t alone. A “rally’’ brew, as it was laughingly called by A.J. Beerzynski.
New Sox slogan: “Tastes great, less winning.’’
But wait. It gets more pathetic.
Pierzynski said he and some teammates had a shot before a 2008 playoff game. The Sox have failed for three years, and now you find out that the last time they had a chance to do something, they were getting their scouting report from Jose Cuervo.
“A shot to try to get us going,’’ A.J. Patron said.
Palm-to-forehead. Who believes alcohol is performance-enhancing? Hicks and dopes, that’s who.
Can’t wait for next season’s Salt-and-Lime Night.
I don’t know if the Sox manager knew or cared. I don’t know if the general manager knew or cared. The manager in question is in Miami now, but I’m sure one of his kids will tweet that the general manager ran a still behind the Fun-damentals deck at U.S. Cellular.
I don’t know how many of those players remain besides A.J. Patron, but if the Sox were going to hire a manager with zero experience, it sounds like they would’ve better served the team by signing Frankie O away from Harry Caray’s.
