spot-on “shore” both ditka and ozzie lost perspective,thought they where bigger than the product, prediction….Ozzie falls on his face in Fla. the Marlins are not the #1-2 or even 3 draw in Fla. he won’t be the media darling after a short time and he’ll implode! Adios! Now if Mr. R would rid us of his GM, the world would be a better place.
oddly they both won titles in a year ending in 5, had played for the team as players and had their careers crash at the start of a new decade. will be interesting if new white sox manager does what wannstedt did and clears out remainder of title team.
I also think the guillen kids should have a reality show.
Was there this much gnashing of teeth on the West Side when Charles Murphy cut ties with Frank Chance? Was there a press conference when Chance assumed the managerial position with the New York Yankees? Snark.
I will miss Ozzie. I liked him as a player and will be forever greatful that he helped in bringing a WS Champ to the White Sox. I wish him the best. I still think part of the problem has not been fixed, though. Ken Williams should also be out. Ozzie may have had some uninspired players, some bad lineups, etc. But he could only make a lineup out of what was on the Major League Roster, sure he may have been sticking it to Kenny by overplaying Dunn and Rios at times. But Ozzie wasn’t the one with the power to call up Viciedo, Axelrod, De Aza, …. that’s Kenny’s job.
