This will be fun.

I wanted Gaston, but I was never going to be upset if they hired Guillen. And what of the local columnists who said things like "Guillen is not getting the job..." and "the job is Gaston's to lose."

It looks like those statements weren't based on facts, but rather how they felt.

I was hoping for Gaston as well.

I can't criticize the Sox for hiring Guillen, I just hope he is the answer.

Now lets hope that KW can put together a pitching staff for his new manager.

Or, it could be that the job WAS Gaston's to lose, and he lost it.

At least Ozzie understands that winning is very important to the Sox, but kicking the Cubs ass is a matter of life and death!!

Marq,

I don't think so. This move shows that it was Jerry's call all along. Everything KW wanted in a manager, he didn't get with Ozzie.

He got Terry Beavington with an accent instead.

I'm just hoping that Ozzie will put Frank at first. :D:

Manuel was Dark Bevington, now this guy's what, Tawny Bevignton?

He needs a bullpen or he's without prayer.

This move is bad. When Guillen and Gaston are the final 2 choices it tells you how the Sox messed up the interviewing process.

Guillen MAY be better then Gaston just because he's not going to be as laid back as JM. If my choice were between these 2 guys, I'd choose Ozzie.

But the choice never should have been between these 2 guys as finalists.
