That's a truly hypothetica question since The Chairman will not pay two managers from now through 2004.

JM could be replaced without costing JR a dime,that is not an excuse.

I would do it just before the start of the series in Los Angeles. That way, Manuel has to fly halfway across the country just to get back to Chicago. He will have plenty of time to contimplate just how worthless he really is.

Hope they do it in LA, so we have something to be excited about while were drinking our beer at the bar

I would do it now because JM gets wood every time he's about to manage a national league game and I would love to see him deprived of the one thing he seems to enjoy. :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

We need an experienced manager who knows how to build a winning baseball team AND whom kenny williams trusts impeccably. I'm not sure anyone with only the former qualification is available (and affordable), much less both.

If they were to have done it, they would have done it yesterday BEFORE the trip out West. The next "window" to fire him is next Monday IMHO.

Promote from within (i.e., Wally Backman, Joe Nosek, etc.).

I just can't believe that after all these years,Manuel is still making the same bad mistakes over and over again.I've heard people say that a new manager doesn't make that much difference but down in Tampa uncle Lou has turned a team that was the biggest joke in baseball to a fun team to watch,that plays well.Unfortunately we(The White Sox) are now the biggest joke in baseball.

I think he'll get canned at about never o'clock tomorrow.

If you promote from within you still have to bump the guy your promoting to a major league manager salary for the rest of this year and next, while still paying Manuel.

Not really,that is what the interim tag is for.

What about next year. Your going to have to pay Manuel next year , and Backman will want an increase from the pittance he is getting right now.
