Phil Rogers sends Tony La Russa to Chicago and Ozzie Guillen to Florida

Rogers:

The more Ozzie Guillen talks about what he’d do if he wasn’t managing the White Sox, the more I believe that there may be something to the 2011 scenario I proposed during spring training. Tony La Russa, who is in on a one-year deal in St. Louis, comes to the White Sox with the understanding he’ll manage for two or three seasons and then move upstairs as a senior consultant. Fredi Gonzalez moves from Florida to Atlanta to replace the retiring Bobby Cox. Guillen is hired to manage the Marlins, who tap his charisma to help build a buzz before moving into their new stadium in ’12. Guillen lives in Miami and got to know Marlins’ owner Jeffrey Loria while serving as a coach to Jack McKeon in 2003, when the Fish shocked the Cubs and Yankees to steal a championship. I’d prefer that Guillen could regain his comfort zone at U.S. Cellular and stick around here another 10 years because I believe he is an excellent manager. But his death wish seems to grow by the week, the latest evidence being how far he went out of his way to take a swipe at Manny Acta before Wednesday’s game in Toronto. Silly stuff.
