No on field action this month, but a lot of off field moves....managers hired, managers fired, some big trades, the mother of all free agent signings and the sad saga of Sox star Monty Stratton.

November 3, 1988 - The Sox name Jeff Torborg as the team’s new field manager. Torborg a former major league catcher, and Indians manager, gains notable success with the club. His ‘team and family’ philosophy takes hold and a young group of players stun the baseball world by winning 94 games in 1990. He would be named Manager of the Year that season.

No love for Jeff Torborg? I'm sure someone will post something now about how he didnt sign an autograph for some orphan with cancer, but i liked him. he was the first manager I can remember. thought he did a pretty good job.

The post-Fregosi era begins. Sox were hurting bad back then. The-borg(forgive the ST reference) finally got them back to playing over .500 baseball.

I liked Torborg a lot. When he left it was like, hey, wha happened?! :?:
