Very weird. Second Chicago team to fire him. But this was surprising, considering they had a great season

Was he an [expletive] or something? Because they just went from 17 games under .500 to 10 games over (in a short season) with solid performances from good young talent.

Renteria has a rep for being great at building teams with young players; the Cubs dumped him when Joe Maddon became available and they wanted to be more splashy. Not sure why the Sox would have a problem with him. Maybe they are going to hire Ron Roeniecke.

According to Nightengale (I know), it's because they didn't like his bullpen management down the stretch.

That's about as good an explanation as we will probably get; even though it sounds like BS.

Supposedly the White Sox are thinking about TLR. That... seems like a bad idea.

You mean TLR isn't dead yet?
