The Chicago White Sox and Ozzie Guillen need to mend fences, make up and get on the same team once again.
The Chicago Sun-Times wrote an article interviewing Guillen, the manager to lead the White Sox to the World Series title in 2005, where he spoke about becoming manager one day again for the White Sox:
"“When Robin gets tired of managing or he’s had enough, I would like to be back. But it’s up to them. If I wear a uniform and it’s the White Sox, that will be special.’’"
The Sun-Times article speaks a lot of how Guillen and Jerry Reinsdorf have began to “get back to the way they were.”
I’m always going to be a huge fan of Guillen. He’ll always will be the No. 1 manager of the White Sox when it comes to having a favorite manager in the history of the team for me. Plus, if Robin Ventura ever does decided to stop managing this team, a return of Guillen couldn’t hurt things with the ball club.
But as for Ventura, he’s done a pretty decent job managing this team in 2014 with all things considered. He doesn’t have much in the bullpen to choose from, and we all have to remember this is just his third year ever managing baseball at any level.
Guillen was a very big reason the White Sox were World Series champions nine years ago, and he does need to be part of this organization in some way. Guillen is one of the greatest players and managers to ever wear a White Sox uniform, and in some way I would like to see him within the organization once again, and he doesn’t even have to be the manager.
What are your thoughts on Guillen and the White Sox repairing their relationship? Do you believe he’ll ever be the manager again for this ball club?
