The TLR Manager Thread

But hes a hall of fame baseball person, legit!

And the HOF excuse can't even be used anymore, we're nearing a 1/5th of the season complete so it's clear to see he's not a good manager anymore.  It's not just 1 or 2 bad decisions in a vacuum.  It's constant bad lineups and bad in game management.  

And being in the HOF is for what you did in the past.  As Kylo Ren once said "Let the past die, kill it if you have to"

Between the awful lineups and bad bullpen management, not sure how anyone can defend TLR at this point.

He's either mailing it in or just doesn't have it anymore because he's either too old or the game has passed him by.

Possibly because those awful lineups have produced at a rate near the top of the league, despite injuries and lots of individual underperformance and slumps.  The Sox are currently 1.5 games behind the best record in baseball.

If LaRussa sucks, every other manager must also.

Or he’s trying to revert the game back to the way he believes it should be played.  Meanwhile us Sox fans have to suffer with his terrible decision making.

It’s this. And that’s why Passan’s report is far from a surprise

It's in spite of LaRussa not because.

Yeah, he said:

among a longer detail of his missteps

Tony and the White Sox are so fortunate beat writers have little to no access to the clubhouse or front office beyond team managed zoom calls.

The vast majority of media and fans has seen many of the first month of decisions as a complete joke. There’s no doubt players and FO experiencing this first hand are even more frustrated at wasting at least another year because of this fossil.

Passan clearly doesn’t like Tony and doesn’t mind being the mouthpiece for Sox employees who have an issue with him as well

so there are Sox employees/players who don't like him? is this as of recently or are you referring to when he was hired? I know there were some rumblings around that time, but haven't heard anything since

That team had an unique style and certainly a defined system of success.

Core of young or rising talent with veterans mixed in. Lots of high contact hitters who kept the line moving.  Willingness to put team over individual numbers. Fundamentally solid.  Dominant dominant bullpens and defense up the middle, and Gordon in LF.  Then ruling over the last 2-3 innings with Dyson, Cain and Gore nearly unstoppable on the basepaths and three closers for the 7th-9th.

What defines this White Sox team but talent/potential?  What is their identity?

Ned Yost was the worst manager in baseball and he won a World Series. All I was pointing out was that the success of a manager isn't judged solely by W/L of his team. LaRussa was given a race care and is driving against some CIVICS. Winning isn't as much of an accomplishment as some seem to think - for a manager.

So far the teams identity is a collection of SP's who all can absolutely SHOVE.

I'll leave this here as well.

It really is a shame that nobody saw this coming.

Just a regurgitation of the Passan report, but nice to see that somebody in Chicago media is willing to run it instead of gaslighting everyone a la Phil Rogers

Has any Chicago media mentioned or discussed Tony's "Ebonics" Joke aimed at a black man as disclosed in the lawsuit filed in April against his animal welfare organization? An organization so tainted both Tony's wife and daughter left not wanting to have anything to do with that mess, a mess Tony continues to defend.

No, and to be honest, the organization's silence surrounding some of the specifics in that article is making me disinterested in watching the team

He definitely has a hack-lib vigilante agenda to undermine Tony and he is not just reporting what he is hearing from people in the clubhouse. 😄
