One of the strengths of the Sox organization has always been its loyalty, but there is a fine between loyalty and complacency or business as usual.

A healthy dose of an outsider coming in and addressing problems from the clubhouse to scouting to parking lot operations is sorely needed. Hell, Rocky Wirtz came in, saw how dismal concessions were at the UC and fired his own brother.
