Tidbit from last night, courtesy of Gonzales:

Guillen's 523rd win as manager moves him into sole possession of third place on the Sox's all-time win list, ahead of .......Tony La Russa.

Congratulations, Ozzie. :gulp:

How does this development affect the comparisons of 1983's slow start to 2010's slow start? Discuss...

Lulz. I liked that thread, but I was still amused by this.

Is the record for third place still a record?

Not really a record, though, is it. Third place?

Guillen has managed more White Sox wins than any manager since LaRussa, though. And he managed more White Sox wins than anyone since Al Lopez, who managed more White Sox wins than anyone since Jimmy Dykes.

Only Lopez had a better winning percentage than Guillen among that group, though.

I guess I shouldn't have made a new thread for a third place record, but I was hoping people would reminisce about such winners like Bevington and be grateful for the current skipper. :smile: I worded the thread title poorly. If a mod could change it, that would be great.

Hmmmm... semantics, semantics. I'd say the use of the term "record" works here. The wins are "recorded" and he has the 3rd place record.

Yes, I remember the celebration in 2005 when the first-place White Sox popped open the champagne to honor Guillen breaking Don Gutteridge's record with his 110th managerial win.

I thought the record to speak of was most F bombs dropped....

"Record" or not, it's impressive.

When I read this I thought it was about a turntable in the clubhouse.
