I think his record shows he's going to be good, and I think he has a chip on his shoulder towards the Cubs and will want to stick it to them any way he possibly can- to me that's a pretty good set of traits for the White Sox manager to have.
That being said I think there's a good chance Charlie Manuel leaves after this year and he gets the Phillies job.
I would've been ok to hiring him because he paid his dues in the minors and had success. If I'm worried about sticking it up to the Cubs, I would hire their former mascot Kerry Wood. I don't really care about the Cubs. I only care about the White Sox winning.
I also think Manuel will be stepping down soon, and Sandberg will be in line to replace him.
