The Chicago White Sox play in AL Central so they see a lot of Kansas City Royals. Now they are no longer competing with them for a new manager as they have made their hire. They removed Matt Quatraro from the board of everyone who had him in mind.
Quatraro was now the bench coach for the Tampa Bay Rays. He did an amazing job there, but now he’s coming a bit further north to take on this new challenge. It should be very interesting to see what he is able to do for this team.
In terms of player personnel, they are full of potential talent. They haven’t been able to put it all together yet, but it doesn’t look like they’re going to take a long time to figure it out. They have made things difficult for some teams throughout the 2022 season.
This is an example of a small market team taking advantage of a situation where they can add someone very smart from another smart organization. With young players like Bobby Witt Jr., Vinnie Pasquantino and Brady Singer in the mix, things are looking up for them.
The Chicago White Sox need to hire their new manager as soon as they can.
The Royals are a team that has a chance to be good very soon. If Quatraro is able to bring these guys to their potential, the AL Central Division better watch out. This is not good news for the Chicago White Sox, especially after the horrible season they have just had.
The White Sox really need to sign someone as soon as they can. We don’t know who it will be, but it’s better to compete with what the other teams in the division have. There are quality managers the White Sox face every night.
Normally, teams don’t announce such things during the World Series, but the Royals clearly don’t care. They have their man and the White Sox are still waiting to announce it.
We don’t know for sure if a decision is made, but you’d think it’s coming soon. The Royals are now one of three to make a new signing. Maybe the White Sox will be the fourth.
