I always thought Robin should have got some experience as a bench coach or minor league manager before becoming the Sox manager.
No, no, no! He was the best man for the job despite no experience and track record. Just ask KW and JR!
When the Sox hired Robin before last season, it was a huge signal to me that White Sox management was not serious about fielding a playoff-contending team. Good for them for surprising everyone for 3 months last year, but they folded in the end when it mattered.
Even if Ventura isn't brought back next year, the Sox will probably just replace him with some other unqualified ex-Sox player. Is Ron Karkovice doing anything? I heard he was well liked and a great guy - sounds like a top candidate for the job!
