Tony La Russa
Tony La Russa needs to do a better job managing the 2022 Chicago White Sox.
Early in 2021, Tony La Russa was not well received by the Chicago White Sox community. He was the 10th best option available to them after firing Rick Renteria and was coming off his second DUI charge. It was not a good look at all.
Then, once the season came around, they had a bumpy start just like this one. There were a lot of things that made Tony La Russa look like a manager that was sleeping at the wheel just like this year as well.
We need to hope that these things change over the next few weeks as they did last season. By the end of the year, Tony La Russa was fine but it took a while for the fanbase to finally be on board. His leash appears to be shorter this year.
The White Sox are absolutely not going to fire him so you can forget about that possibility. What you can hope for, however, is that he starts to pick up on these strategic mistakes that he keeps making.
There have been quite a few decisions that have had a helping hand in the Chicago White Sox losing. One of the biggest areas of complaint has been the lineup card. Leury Garcia has absolutely no business batting in the top half. He also simply needs to be better with his in-game judgment.
