    This seems like a wild move. This is either great or it will blow up the entire culture of the White Sox... there is no in between lol

    Been there, done that...

    But then again, Bobby Cox managed the Braves two different times. So did Cito Gaston and John Gibbons in Toronto.

    I'm already pumped for the white sox and astros to play each other. Dusty Baker vs La Russa is one of the most underrated rivalries in sports... those guys HATE each other lol

    Baker played for LaRussa on the 1986 A's.

    This is getting a ton of backlash from Sox fans. Apparently Hahn didn't want La Russa but Reinsdorf overruled him.

    If it results in Hahn leaving, I'll be really pissed. Otherwise, I'm fine with the hire. I don't see this being a long-term commitment given his age.

    Seems like the worst fit possible to manage a young fun ballclub. He'll be benching Tim Anderson for a bat flip by the end of first week.

    Doubt it. He was questioned pretty hard in his presser and seemed like he understands the situation. We'll see.

    So Bochy was reportedly their 2nd choice. Not sure how you can justify going La Russa over Bochy, assuming Bochy definitely wants to return.

    Didn't see this coming with Hinch (or even Cora) available. LaRussa is a good baseball man but at his age, how long will be be able to handle the rigors of life on the road? Can he handle the players of today?

    I guess Lasorda was not available.

    Says volumes that a majority of White Sox fans that I have seen are not at all happy.
