Could the Chicago White Sox hire the disgraced former manager?
In a move that made many Chicago White Sox fans happy, the team announced on Monday that it was parting ways with manager Rick Renteria, setting the stage for what will be a critical hire. One rumor circulating the internet is that the team is considering bringing in former Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch. While that may excite some fans, there are simply too many red flags surrounding Hinch.
I understand the level of frustration from White Sox fans. The team has one of, if not the most impressive collection of young talent on the roster in all of Major League Baseball. When they began this rebuild, Renteria seemed like a fine candidate. Expectations were low and the focus was on resetting the team to be competitive in the future. Few upper echelon managers would be interested in that kind of situation.
