Is Guillen going to keep the same coaches as Manuel? I haven't heard. I think it would be wise of the Sox to bring in a couple of former managers as coaches to help Ozzie out. Larry Dierker would make a great pitching coach and I miss Doug Rader.....

I like your line of thinking, but former managers cost money.

They are keeping everyone except for Bruce Kim and Man Soo Lee. Bruce Kime...see ya bye, no big loss. I really hate to see Man Soo go, he was awesome.

Man Soo Lee is coming back. Our coaching staff is fine the way it is. They are very intelligent baseball people and very capable of doing well. They also have a repour with the players. Cooper is great as is Navassek. Navassek has taking over the managerial role for Manuel when ejected. He knows the game and is one of the best at sign stealing. The core around Ozzie is very good, and now they'll be able to use what they know in a more aggressive style. It's going to be fun.

Is Navassek the Blackhawks' new young European defenseman?

Why did Bruce Kimm get let go? In spite of his Chub affiliations, he seemed like he knew what he was doing out there.

I thought he did a very good job. He was aggressive and it paid off. However, Guillen needed to have at least one of his guys come in, and Kimm unforunately was the likely candidate. I wish he could have stayed, but I understand why it happened. Guillen will encourage aggressiveness, I just hope Cora has the same instincts. I think he'll be fine. Kimm did kind of get a raw deal though, but he'll get something, he's too good not to.

I'm just glad that they kept Cooper on. I think he did a pretty solid job with the pitchers last season. I don't know how much influence he had on Loaiza's development or Buerhle's mid-season turn around, but outside the 5th starter, it was the first time in a while where I was more surprised by poor outings than I was surprised by solid ones.

You left out the fact that he is also Jerry Reinsdorf's spy in the clubhouse.

I think everybody in the clubhouse is a Jerry/K-Dub guy now. What will he have to spy on?

He's going to spy on Guillen. Guillen tends to be sly and no one really knows what he's thinking. Nossek will keep JR posted on what's really going on. Lol.
