I'll be honest- I would like the Sox to consider hiring Ryne Sandberg, and think they should have done it two years ago when he got jilted by the Cubs.

He has paid the dues that Robin never did in the minors (and has had success coaching in both the Cubs and Phillies organizations.)

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.

Sandberg would be my 2nd choice behind Dave Martinez. I'm totally shocked that these 2 men aren't Mgrs by now.

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.

I was about to post the same. Like Martinez, Thibs had a great rep around the league and was a hot coaching candidate. Like Martinez, no one hired him when he first threw his hat in the ring (the Bulls, in their infinite wisdom, wanted both VDN and Collins ahead of Thibs).

I don't think Martinez will ever be as good a manager as Thibs is a coach, but there are some interesting parallels there.

Maybe Martinez will have Sale throw 150 pitches a game and play all the regular starting lineup 160 games too.

All joking aside, whenever AJ is ready to manage hire him. He would be a great manager IMO.

Royce Clayton as head coach Carl Everett as hitting coach Jamie Navarro as pitching coach and Jose Valentin as bench coach.

From the wires:

CBS Sports' Danny Knobler reports that Ryne Sandberg will replace Charlie Manuel as the Phillies' manager.

It's the logical move, as Sandberg managed the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate from 2011-12 before taking over as the third base coach for the big league club this season.


Now this is how you hire a manager - seasoned, progressed through the system. Not by picking a name out of a hat of fan favorites who never coached.

Meh

With all that experience, would he have the wisdom to sacrifice bunt in the 9th with 2 on, down 2, to get the bat in the hands of Danks the younger?

The Sox did it the way you like. Terry Bevington was a fine manager.

Considering you don't have any experience, I don't see how you could judge. Apparently, without any managerial experience people know nothing about baseball.

I would bet my life savings that managers who have experience as Sandberg does have fared better over time than those with none, just like in the rest of the working world. I'd love to get an interview with your company, please.
