  1. This is still a business. It is safe to say teams will lose money this year especially w attendance, game day spending, gear and advertising. Owners may have much tighter budgets for 21/22 until fans and the economy recovers.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    I do think Hahn did but I don't think there would have been a consensus w the players ( especially the young ones). Like most teams, I think RR was liked by some players and not by others. Certainly Keuchel was a big supporter of Hinch and he probably talked him up to some players. But I would assume most players would have a wait and see on any new manager which they will w TLR.

    Maybe they did but according to NBC Chicago : White Sox Targeted La Russa From Start, Didn't Interview A.J. Hinch https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/sports/nbcsports/report-white-sox-targeted-la-russa-from-start-didnt-interview-a-j-hinch/2361160/

    I wonder if at some point the White Sox front office started this "search" by eliminating both Hinch and Cora due to their Houston issues. I find it strange Hinch never even got an interview. Or JR decided before the season ended that it would be TLR and there was only one candidate being considered.

    Who would you have hired?

    I think he is the next Indian manager maybe even next year based on Francona's health

    Interesting w a new Bulls GM in place, JR did not pick Billy Donovan as his next coach. But w all Hahn's years, it appears he did not get to decide.

    Maybe Cora could be the manager in waiting. He worked w LaRussa 2 years ago. If the Red Sox pass and Tigers grab Hinch maybe this would work. He certainly got along w his players and has the spanish connection. Has won a World Series and is up on analytics.

    He will use the pitching cart that is in moth balls

    That is not true. He was offered the job but it took him a week to remember who offered it to him.

    How do you like Nashville as compared to the North.

    This guy is A Mass. writer so I doubt he is connected to White Sox. But this earlier tweet I find interesting La Russa was an active advisor with the Red Sox under Dombrowski. Was shocked at how many games he attended (like 150+, including almost every road trip).

    I do understand your point that TA should hand pick the next manager. Lebron did it is LA and they won a championship. TA can be a consultant on the committee w JR, KW, RH, JA and Billy D.

    Really? Tony is 76 and Hinch is 46. That is a pretty big difference.
  16. SCCWS

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    I understand your concern but no. No player is bigger than the organization. Players should absolutely give input ( even sit in or some of the interview) but they have limited knowledge of most candidates. Would TA know if Bochy would be better than Hinch? How much would TA know about Geren or Quatraro? JR shouldn't hand pick either but unfortunately he has the option. Hopefully TLR gets lost on the way to his 2nd interview because he probably doesn't have a GPS.

    Like the Dodgers, the Parade will be rescheduled for a later date.

    Agree. Dodger lineup was bound to catch a mistake like Betts did later on. Snell probably should have stayed but the next 3 batters were all big time threats

    I think you missed the key point. In 5 years JR will be 89 and 10 years he will be 94. If JR made this decision, he could care less what happens in 5 years let alone 10. He wants to win 1 more time and in his mind, TLR is the quick fix. Many of us disagree, but it is his money and his time is running out.

    No way in hell. He is probably a Depends guy.

    Dusty Baker probably went through a tougher( we hope) stretch .

    Offseason Targets

    Suppose Hahn (or KW or JR) hires TLR as a consultant to assist a young manager. That may not match up w Hahn's wanting someone outside system w playoff experience but LaRussa would check those boxes. As I posted previously, it worked w Cora in 2018.

    I would think Hinch and Cora will meet w several teams so it may take a few days.

    Shifts could be endangered

    It was a great game , Unfortunately the viewership has plummeted to mostly us die-hards. With game times getting worse, Manfred is also looking into adding recliners for the coaches in the dugout.
