  • **Official** Sox Managerial candidates thread.

    Lets drop what ever news we hear about potential candidates in here

    So far to summarize,

    AJ Hinch
    Alex Cora
    Tony LaRussa

    are the most frequently talked about candidates out there

    I found this nugget today
    Bruce Bochy would listen if approached with regards to the Sox Managerial job.

    From what I’ve read and heard on podcasts and such, it seems the Sox at least appear to favor Hinch but between Hinch and Cora, I’d favor Cora myself.

        If I never hear Joey Cora's name again, it'll be too soon. Mediocre player who helped sink our pennant chances in the '93 ALCS and lousy coach. He was right along side with Ozzie when he quit on this team before the 2011 season ended. ....I actually didn't realize until now that Joey and The Cheater are brothers. I hope they both stay very far away from the White Sox.

        I'd be okay if they gave the job to Hinch. I'm not pleased with his connection to the Astros scandal, but at least he wasn't the ringleader like that scumbag Cora.

          Alex is the only guy I definitely don't want. If people want to hate Hinch because he managed over it, how will we accept someone who participated in it?

          Only if he brings Joey.

            Damn, we posted that at the same time. You've earned my first like here.

              Looks like AJ Hinch will have his pick of managerial jobs. At the very least, the Tigers and White Sox are both interested. Another team could emerge as well, I'm sure RR is not the only manager who will be fired this month.

              Sandy Alomar, Jr also comes up in some articles.

                I am hoping it's not LaRussa; the game has substantially changed since he retired, and I don't want anyone associated with the steroid era within 100 miles of the clubhouse.

                I'm prolly in the minority, but I'd like to see the Sox take a long look at Matt Quatraro; the Rays organization does nothing but produce winning teams.

                  Quatraro should definitely get a look. I've heard some suggest that we might even be able to steal Cash from the Rays.

                    Alomar would be a great pick. However, it sounds like Francona's health issues are serious enough (blood clots) that he may have to retire. Given this, Alomar is probably 99% assured of the Indians job on a permanent basis since he has clearly passed the audition.

                    Also, Hahn said they are going outside the organization. Francona skippered Birmingham in the 90's.

                      Way too much chatter regarding LaRussa, including a report that the Sox have gotten permission to interview him. I may be done if that's who they go with.

                        Just imagine him in the 1983 throwback uniforms... Maybe his old one still fits!

                            Having said that, ideally we bring in someone younger. Not a kid, but definitely not AARP spokespeople

                              They can’t officially talk to Hinch until after the World Series so hopefully this just to satisfy Jerry.
