Coach of the Year
A lot of the time, the Coach of the Year award in any sport goes to the coach of a team that was awesome when they weren’t expected to be awesome. Not everyone knows exactly how good the White Sox roster can be so they are perceived as the middle of the pack team right now. If the guys that our White Sox fans love really hit their stride, this team can be extremely dangerous. If that happens, Rick Renteria could be considered to be a Coach of the Year candidate.
There are some usual suspects that he will be up against but all he needs to do is help his White Sox become a great team and he will be recognized. He needs to go about his business the way he always has because these players love playing for him. “Ricky’s boys don’t quit” being a slogan tells you everything you need to know.
A lot of fans want to see the White Sox win with Renteria at the helm. The Chicago Cubs fired him right when it was time to win with a good roster and it looks like the White Sox are not going to do that. It would be really cool to see him win now that he finally has a good lineup with the White Sox because every lineup he has ever managed before this simply wasn’t good enough. If that happens, he will be in consideration for this award.
