    Tim Anderson: 2021 White Sox need ‘whoop these m-----f-----s’ attitude | RSN (nbcsports.com)

    Gonna be a fun season.

    It's good to see a leader emerge in Anderson. It's also good to see he's cognizant of what went wrong last year after clinching the playoff spot. Not sure it would have changed things in the playoffs with our lack of pitching, but it could have stopped the late season collapse and perhaps rewarded us with a more favorable first round matchup.

      Getting rid of the utterly useless Renteria will help with this.

        You call that leadership? I call it adolescent posturing.

          This is exactly what I thought of when TA showed his "mean dog" attitude. Strong leadership could have prevented the Sox late season collapse.

            I call it leadership. Good to see it.

              Perhaps not having Jimmy Cordero, Jose Ruiz, Gio Gonzalez and Carlos Rodon pitch and melt down in late inning, high leverage situations in four consecutive losses in Cleveland would have made a difference? Who knows. But I don't know how Anderson could've prevented it.

                Keuchel will pin down any slackers and TA will bat flip the bum. That'll keep the troops motivated!

                  One of these days a pitcher is gonna strike out TA7 in a big spot and do his pasta-eating gesture on the mound. But the Sox seem to perform better when Tim is fired up than when he's not.

                  Tim Anderson is arguably the hardest working guy on this team. He has worked his ass off to get from a very raw prospect to a guy who won the batting title once and almost won the batting title the next season. The Sox would be a better team if everyone became a bit more like Tim Anderson.

                    Yeah, but I don't know if a guy that's older than ancient me is the answer.
                    Now coming up to bat for the White Sox is the Mighty Mite, Nelson Fox.

                      There are no good or bad leaders. Their are only right and wrong leaders for individual situations. For the White Sox, Tim Anderson is probably the best possible leader they could have.

                        I think it ultimately came down to La Russa being the only alternative to Renteria that Reinsdorf would accept.

                          Having the attitude of wanting to kick ass day in and day out is adolescent posturing? Isn't that kind of the point of sports, to have attitudes like that?

                            In order to have this approach you have to have the right kind of guys on the club. I just dont see this with the players they have.

                              I happen to think the guys we have are all ready for his type of hype. Attitude and (I can’t believe I’m typing this) “swag” are contagious and the trickle down effect obviously starts at the top. He and Dallas both have a win-or-die-trying mentality and I want that in our clubhouse. That approach showed up on the field, late season struggles notwithstanding.
