On Thursday, the Chicago White Sox finally found their new general manager, as they promoted Chris Getz to replace the recently dismissed Rick Hahn.
The 2023 season has been one to forget for the White Sox, and it ultimately led to owner Jerry Reinsdorf dismissing both Hahn and Ken Williams.
Many fans in Chicago have grown frustrated with Reinsdorf and have wanted him to sell the team for quite some time.
On Thursday, Reinsdorf discussed his status as the team’s owner and why he wants to remain at the helm for a little while longer before calling it a career.
Scott Merkin of MLB.com tweeted what the White Sox owner had to say.
Reinsdorf: "Friends of mine have said, 'Why don’t you sell? Why don’t you get out?' My answer always has been, 'I like what I’m doing, as bad as it is, and what else would I do? I’m a boring guy. I don’t play golf. I don’t play bridge. And I want to make it better before I go.'"

Reinsdorf mentioned that some of his friends have asked him why he hasn’t sold the team yet and why he wants to remain the White Sox owner instead of going somewhere else.
The White Sox owner says that he likes what he’s doing, even though things have gotten bad for the South Siders this year.
He claimed to be “a boring guy” who doesn’t like to play golf or bridge and said he can’t imagine himself doing anything else.
In that case, he hopes to stick around a while longer and try to make things better for the White Sox as they try to sort out the mess that has been the 2023 season.
These are some interesting comments, and they may not sit well with White Sox fans.
But it appears that for now, Reinsdorf isn’t going anywhere.NEXT: Insider Reveals Latest Mike Clevinger Update
