Damn! Couldn’t the Sox bring a minor-league affiliate home?
Losing Guillen as their manager would be a mistake for the South Siders,
I don’t want a manager that asks for credit for prioritizing 9 games at NL parks over 153 at AL parks.
even if they wind up with Tony La Russa as his successor.
Oh, I’m with you there. If we’re gonna end up with La Russa, we better stay with Guillen.
Speaking of managers, how awesome would it be if the White Sox hired Tom Tango as manager? The answer is ‘Off the charts.’
