The Chicago White Sox have called the south side of Chicago home for over 120 years, but could that soon be coming to an end?

According to a report by Crain’s Chicago’s Greg Hinz, White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf is considering a number of options, including selling the team or relocating to Nashville.

There are a number of things to unpack here. Firstly, Guaranteed Rate Field was built in 1991, which makes it the eighth-oldest stadium in Major League Baseball, so it’s easy to understand why Reinsdorf may be starting to apply pressure to start the new stadium process.

This also isn’t the first time Reinsdorf has done this. When the White Sox were seeking a new stadium prior to Guaranteed Rate being built, Reinsdorf was in talks to move the White Sox to Tampa to play in the newly-constructed Tropicana Field, before Illinois lawmakers passed a last-minute stadium funding package.

It’s also possible that Reinsdorf is using this as a way to deflect attention from another disappointing season. The White Sox entered play Monday at 49-75 on the year, the third-worst record in the American League, ahead of just the Kansas City Royals and Oakland Athletics.

With the Chicago Bears in the midst of planning a new stadium of their own, perhaps Reinsdorf is just following in their footsteps.

Naturally, the report led to a frenzy of reactions online.
