Maybe he wasnt not the type of person that would kiss the ring. I dont think this organization wants employees like that.

I didn’t want anything to do with Vizquel, but Renteria is trash.
How does firing a AA manager where players at that level seemed to regress under that manager indicate that they are all in on Renteria? I'm not wearing my conspiracy hat yet this morning so maybe I'm missing something here.

Right? And if people thought Renteria loved bunting, apparently Omar took it to a whole new level.

This can be an addition through subtraction.

I got this off another website. It supports what some of you are saying and provides a plausible explanation.

Scott Merkin reported that Vizquel and the Sox are parting ways after two seasons in the system. That robs a lot of White Sox fans of their most obvious Rick Renteria replacement, but whatever magic Vizquel worked in Winston-Salem didn’t carry over to Birmingham, where a few guys moved out, but most other players languished.

I didn’t buy into the Vizquel hype, mainly because his smallball tendencies appeared even more pronounced than Renteria’s, and led to far more unnecessary outs. Laz Rivera went 20-for-38 stealing bases under Vizquel’s two teams, while Ti’Quan Forbes managed to go a dreadful 8-for-21. He has an engaging personality and an out-there sense of aesthetics, but the rest of the approach needed work. And instead of devoting space to that work, the White Sox instead might be clearing room for Justin Jirschele to move up a level.

Some of these attempts to read Omar's mind tell me more about what's in your minds than his.
