Former reliever Keynan Middleton criticized the White Sox team's 'no rules' culture, as reported by several sources. In addition, he stated that during games rookies slept in the bullpen, which lacked accountability and structure. Furthermore, he proposed that the team's cultural problems were partially responsible for its season's difficulties.
Rick Hahn, the general manager of the White Sox, rejected Middleton's statements that a novice reliever slept in the bullpen during a game. Furthermore, the White Sox management contradicted Middleton's allegations of a "no rules" culture on August 7th.
The remarks made by Middleton have caused controversy and led to inquiries about the team's culture and administration. The White Sox are experiencing a difficult season and it is highly probable that they will not qualify for the playoffs.
