I dont think most people hate him as a person, they hate him as a manger.

Be nice, it's their first post and thread.

However, I agree. It isn't the person we dislike, it's the way they do their job.

I don't hate him. I've met him and I think he is a really nice guy. But, he is not a good manager. I think he lacks the gut instincts that winning managers have. He seems to go throught the motions and everything by the book. Also with some of the players comments about how much they like him, seems to me that he has been to easy on them and not enough of a disiplinarian.

I want him gone, but I wish him luck on his next endeavor. :smile:

I think its those little glasses he wears.
Or maybe its because after 6 years he has learned nothing and continues to make the same stupid mistakes over and over again.
As for Uncle Lou.If by some miracle the Sox had aquired him during the off-season,then there is no doubt in my mind that the White Sox would have won their division by 10 games.

First of all, Jerry will be gone after this year, and if he isn't, I might consider finding a new team. As for why everyone hates him, Jerry seems to be a very good person, but his managing skills are clearly a detriment to this ballclub, and the fact that this team underachieved so much that they couldn't win the mediocre AL Central this year is enough reason for me to think Jerry must go. There are many other reasons why people don't like jerry, but you will read them as you check out the site more and more. Oh and BTW, welcome aboard! :cool:

As others have said, he's a very nice person. And that consistenly calm, even, and positive demeanor has been very beneficial sometimes. Perhaps my biggest complaint about him is that some of his decisions seem so obviously wrong (Cotts in NY, pulling Colon too early, etc.).

I dont hate Jerry, hes a nice christian person. His decisions (among other things) cost us a playoff appearance this year.
But as PHG pointed out Recently, I do want to Shake His Hand Personally, and Tip My Cap to him FOR ALWAYS GETTING THE WHITE SOX UP and READY for the CUbs Series. Thank You Jerry for that. I know its not much to go on in the Offseason, but IF We cant make the Playoffs.....AT LEAST WE BEAT THE CUBS.
small consolation, but i'll take it. Good Luck to you JM

He's a liar-many times said things in 6 years that he just didnt do, or immediately reversed. I bet that the players involved will be glad he's gone, as will I.

WOW! Jerry's not even gone for 24 hours and already someone is pining for the Jerry Manuel days.

Usually it takes a few years before we're nostalgic for foregone manager.

Or in the case of Boomer, a few eons.
