“Rookie pitchers sleep in the bullpen during games, some players skip team meetings, and some skip fielding practice. And no one is disciplined.” This is the current state of affairs in the Chicago White Sox organization, according to New York Yankees pitcher Khinin Middleton, 29, of Major League Baseball (MLB). Middleton, a bullpen pitcher, was traded to the Yankees on Feb. 2 after spending this year with the White Sox. According to Middleton, who was quoted by ESPN in an article published online on July 7, the White Sox are a disorganized team that is hard to call a big league club. Middleton recalled that when he signed a minor league contract in January of this year, the White Sox “didn’t have a team bylaw.” Everyone was doing their own thing, and there was no discipline or guidelines to control the players’ personal behavior as a team. There’s plenty of evidence to back up Middleton’s revelations, ESPN added. “When I started spring training this year, I was told that a lot of this stuff happened last year,” Middleton said, “and they didn’t say, ‘Don’t miss defensive drills,’ or ‘Don’t miss team 스포츠토토링크 meetings,’ they just said, ‘OK,’ when it actually happened. “He also cited the absence of starting pitcher Lance Lynn and veteran reliever Kendall Graveman, saying, “They left the team in spring training to go to the World Baseball Classic (WBC), and it takes a very strong person in an organization to create a team culture, and they were the two guys that were going to set the tone for the team.” The White Sox’ lack of discipline was also due to their absence .Like Middleton, Lynn and Graveman were traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros, respectively, before the trade deadline .Middleton’s new experience is with the Yankees, who currently have one of the most conservative bylaws among the 30 major league clubs .He’s clean-shaven, with a no-beard rule, and he’s never late for a team meeting. He knows there’s a steep price to pay for doing so .Middleton’s comments come as the White Sox, whose season was derailed by a “fire sale” of key players, find themselves at the center of the media spotlight after a brawl reminiscent of boxing on Saturday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
