A source of the problem

Tom Glavine calls out the Nuttings.

"I don't know the ins and outs of what's going on here with the ownership group, but you have to take a look at that and see if that's a source of the problem," Glavine said. "You have teams over the past few years that weren't doing well before, but they're doing well now. You have to ask that question: Have the economics of those other teams changed so dramatically? Or have the people who run those organizations done a better job of putting a team together?"
All hail Tom Glavine! (Huh, never thought I'd type that.)

Later in the article, DK quotes A.J. on Mack-o-wack's learned helplessness:

A.J. Pierzynski ... said a losing culture can be blamed, too. He said he and teammate Rob Mackowiak, formerly of the Pirates, often discussed the difference in the atmosphere that built the White Sox into a champion last year and the one in Pittsburgh.

"Rob would always say how bad it was, how hard it was to come to the park," Pierzynski said.
