The White Sox are a poorly run organization.

Well, now that we've had the carping, let the caterwauling commence...

Well, I'm glad they could take him out so I could see Dylan Axelrod start on Sunday in Detroit.

Still don't understand why the four of them (Herm, Coop, Robin, and KW) cannot talk this over and come to a joint decision? Why not skip a start and say:

"Sale is experiencing some unusual soreness so we are going to get him an MRI. He is not injured but this is his first full season as a MLB starter so we are taking the necessary precautions for his long-term health."

Wouldn't that have worked? Wouldn't us Sox fans be satisfied? Why throw him in the pen for two days? I am so, so confused.

I'll start. VERY happy Sale is back in the rotation! I'm assuming his MRI was good.

Now for the "caterwauling" - are you ******* me? Since we can only guess as to how this thing shook out, here's what I've come up with:

- Cooper wanted Sale in the bullpen all along. According to Cowley (I know, I know), it was the one thing he and Ozzie agreed on last year. Cooper's ego is exploding. I can't think of a single pitching coach (or any coach) in all of MLB that is as visible as Coop.

- Sale reports a little soreness, Cooper freaks out and leans on his in-over-his-head manager who of course agrees with Cooper because, well, he has ZERO experience managing a baseball team. Ventura states publicly that he doubted Sale would return to the rotation. Cooper talks about "preserving his career" yada, yada, yada...and Sale is like "Huh?"

- Sale, his agent, and Kenny are fuming. Sale wants to start, knows he isn't hurt and Kenny desperately needs Sale to succeed as a starter for obvious reasons. Sale's agent knows Sale's value is diminished as a bullpen guy.

- Kenny tells Cooper and Ventura, if his MRI is clear - he's starting. End of story and please SHUT UP!

At the end of the day, no harm, no foul. However, I think it makes Ventura look like a fool and a puppet.

Didn't the Red Sox just do the same thing?

After the Theo/Francona ordeal, I don't think the Red Sox are still viewed as a model franchise.
