Uninterested in finding a single scapegoat for the Chicago White Sox's disappointing start, general manager Rick Hahn said Tuesday that everybody needs to accept responsibility for a team that has lacked fight and has been uninspiring over the opening month of the season. Outcry for manager Robin Ventura to be fired has been vented mostly on social media, but Hahn won't let any one guy take the fall for the collective disappointment that has been the White Sox in the early going. "To make one individual the focal point? I don't think that's fair," Hahn said Tuesday before the start of a six-game homestand that features series against the Detroit Tigers and Cincinnati Reds. "Again, this accountability is shared, starting with the players in uniform, going to the coaches, the manager, the front office. This is on all of us." The White Sox made a number of roster upgrades this season both through trades and free agency and looked much improved from the team that lost 89 games last season. But they have opened with an 8-14 record and were tied for last place in the American League Central at the start of play Tuesday. The last week and a half has been particularly odd for the White Sox. They were involved in a brawl April 23 with the Kansas City Royals, and the next two days saw a game suspended by weather in the eighth inning and a postponement because of rain.
