I agree- he had a good first 5 months on the job in 2012, they were .500 at the end of May, 2013- then a horrible 4 months.
2014 would present a challenge to ANY manager- lots of roster turnover with young, unproven new talent coming in- it will be interesting to see how Robin adjusts his approach for this season.
He's one of my favorite all time Whtie Sox players- and I'm rooting for him- but this is definitely a make or break season for him as a manager.
