Default Rick Renteria Contract Extended

Per James Fegan of the Athletic

"Hello from Carlsbad. Rick Hahn didnít provide details on length, but said that Rick Renteria signed a contract extension some time ago and that 2019 is not his last season under contract"

9 seasons as coach or manager with 1 winning season. Fits right in.

Coach or manager on awful rebuilding Sox, Cubs, and Padres teams. Casey Stengel wouldnít have had several .500+ seasons with the same teams. Letís see what he can do with some actual talent and when theyíre not trying to win a draft pick.

Without knowing the length it's hard to tell if the Sox would be willing to fire him if things go south (as expected) in 2019 or 2020 (when they damn well better start turning around).

But of course they weren't willing to fire Ozzie when he was begging for it until the very end of the 2011 season and they weren't willing to fire Ventura.

Loyalty..."it just means more" to the White Sox

It just makes no sense to extend Renteria at this point. It's such a White Sox move to make. 2019 is going to be a critical year for the rebuild. Renteria has been "ok" so far but what could it have hurt to wait and see if the team took the necessary step forward next season? I just don't get it.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done." -George Carlin
