    Re: white sox hire robin ventura as manager

    Risky choice for White Sox. Does he even have any coaching experience at all?

    I like it. Increases the changes of Nolan Ryan - Ventura II during a Sox - Rangers game. I love the story about how Ryan gets asked to sign that picture all the time.

    Re: white sox hire robin ventura as manager

    Well, Ventura never played in the minors so I guess there is no point in him coaching there either... Headscratcher...

    I hope Robin has a better plan for the Sox than he did on his trip to the mound to meet Mr. Ryan.....

    Re: white sox hire robin ventura as manager

    Looks like we weren't afraid to do what the Cubs wouldnt. With that being said, i wasnt thrilled when Ozzie was hired either but that worked out.

    Re: white sox hire robin ventura as manager

    In no way concerned that Ventura can manage in game situations, etc. Baseball is the easiest pro sport in which to do so. His test will be in the clubhouse. Either way, not disappointed.

    It looks like a dumb hire, but the White Sox under Kenny Williams are always a little out there and it works for them quite a bit. You guys are gonna bow to the Hos for the next few years anyway, so he can learn on the job.
