World News – CA – White Sox hire Tony La Russa, let air out of their own tires


The Chicago White Sox, an already hardy budding tree with spectacular young talent brimming with fun, individuality and imagination, just needlessly put a governor on their own success If not in the short term , then in the medium and certainly in the long term

Hiring Tony La Russa, 76, a man who has forgotten more baseball ideals than most will ever know, sounds great on paper The man is a winner with a Hall of Fame pedigree and is combat tested

Sorry, let me be more specific It sounds good on a man’s paper A guy who always gets the paper delivered himself Jerry Reinsdorf went ahead and did it despite the protests insiders that this was a disastrous crisis As an executive making a handshake deal on the 16th hole, he’s gone to party in the clubhouse as the base desperately tries to recalibrate his own professional life

Literally as the news broke, dissidents called on top sports media spokespersons to speak out

The hiring of Tony La Russa has ruffled feathers in the White Sox organization A number of employees are concerned about his ability to connect with younger players and how he is will adapt to the terrain after 9 years of absenceIt was a decision by Jerry Reinsdorf As simple as that

A fanbase snapshot is particularly difficult to watch That sums it up perfectly, if a bit depressing

Tony La Russa is the rare triple threat of being very publicly anti-news, anti-Kaepernick in his protests, and also baseball’s longest-serving manager in over a decade

That’s right La Russa is going to handle Tim Anderson Everyday At the peak of his career Anderson, not Tony During what always turns out to be a shorter victory window than everyone thinks That’s what they do They inspected the board and found a map that was lost under the sofa for almost a decade and was not fully readable for longer than that

He inherits a decidedly modern squad in a modern game in the most leaven manner possible La Russa certainly wouldn’t have removed Blake Snell from Game 6 But his hire has the same effect for opponents everywhere While Mookie Betts and the other Dodgers celebrated the move and knew it would improve their chances of winning, the Sox ‘AL competition does the same once they fully accept it as reality.

Every AL Central team has improved today if baseball, as Billy Mumphrey discovered, is a zero-sum game Added by the absurd addition of Reinsdorf

What’s damning is that no one forced them to do this (which, by the way, is a funny but petty sign to bring to marathons) Lots of other options were on the table Hell, are still on the table, to be picked up not as snippets, but as delicacies appreciated by the franchise in search of more relevant leadership

There’s a reason the whole La Russa rumor erupted into laughter There’s a reason people made some bold proclamations and daring about what they would do if he found himself in a White Sox uniform Because it’s so ridiculous On her face and on any thought
