From Ken Rosenthal's Speed Reads in The Sporting News (Page 28)

"One scout says that the White Sox would stand an excellent chance in the playoffs 'as long as Jerry Manuel stayed off the pitchers mound in the late innings.' Manuel has a poor feel for making pitching changes and his ill advised insertition of Jose Paniagua against the Twins last week helped reverse the momentum of that series..."

I sent Ken an e-mail of Phil Rogers column on Manuel in the Thursday Tribune. Ken said that he agreed with Rogers that Manager Gandhi is gone after the season.

Finally for what it's worth. I spoke with Jerry Koosman today finalizing the time and day for the WSI Interview. He said he was at the game in the Metrodome last night and couldn't remember when he ever saw a team as flat in a big situation as the White Sox were.
