What? He had no managerial experience before getting the job with the Sox; hell, he was barely more qualified than Ventura at the time of their hire.

Really, we only sing Ozzie's praises because he happened to be the guy at the wheel during one magical season everything went right. Take away the lone and obvious outlier in his White Sox managerial tenure and he was barely above .500 with 1 playoff win to show for 7 years.
