POLL: Who should be the next White Sox manager?
« on: September 30, 2011, 07:30:59 am »
Who would you like to be named the next Chicago White Sox manager?

Be SPECIFIC with the name whether it be a newbie manager like Sandy Alomar, Jr.; Davey Martinez; Don Cooper; Ryne Sandberg; Carlton Fisk; etc. or a former MLB manager like Bobby Valentine; Jim Fregosi; Jim Riggleman; etc. or even someone who's managing another team right now but is expected to be fired soon (like Terry Francona).

I dont really have an exact choice. Somebody with experience. Gardenhire if available, which we dont know at this point, or Francona. My guess is that Reinsdorf will opt for somebody fresh or new such as Sandy Alomar who would have a cheaper price tag and likely accept Coop and Baines.

I'd give the job to Cooper, based solely on his two post-game pressers alone.

Heh.  I just watched them online last night... and I agree.

He's got some Archie Bunker in him, for sure.

Just reading some of Francona's bio... seems he and Buddy Bell were pretty tight in their days with the Reds and Bell named him to his coaching staff while in Detroit. 

Also, I gotta think Francona and Don Cooper are very familiar with each other since Coop was the minor league pitching coordinator while Francona managed Birmingham for 3 seasons.

Given those facts, I'd say Francona is likely to be our new manager if he's not looking for top-tier $$$.

Yeah, thats what frightens me. You get a qualified candidate and Reinsdorf is looking to pay for a rookie

Probably because he hopes we put a AAA team on the field

I want Martinez, have since the start, but would go with McEwing, the guy has done well.
