The Chicago White Sox have struggled this season, and fans were unsurprisingly disappointed after another loss on Friday night. Fans expressed their disappointment by booing the team, and Chicago manager Tony La Russa shared his thoughts on the matter.
According to the James Fagan campaign, Larusa said, “It’s a two-way relationship. They support you and you have to give back .. So we have to do more in terms of giving back.”

The negative reaction is understandable considering no one wants to see their team lose , and La Russa seems to take this to heart and think of ways to help the team do better.
The White Sox are certainly not the worst team in the league, but they have a lot of room to improve.

Chicago has a very interesting lineup. Their advantages and disadvantages are very obvious. Their batting average is high. They are fourth in batting average among all MLB teams (0.259). Their on-base percentage was significantly worse, but still slightly above the league average at 13th (.315).
They clearly lack a worrying amount of power. Their slugging percentage was 12th (0.384), which dropped their OPS (0.699) to 17th.
Their rotation is worse. They have the 11th-worst ERA (4.00), the 14th-worst opponent batting average (0.244) and the ninth-worst WHIP (1.31). While they’re not in the bottom 10, they’re not too far off in some areas and could benefit from overall growth.
