2. John Farrell
John Farrell would be a great person for the Chicago White Sox to consider now.
The Chicago White Sox might want a manager that has preexisting experience in an MLB dugout. They might also want someone who has experience making deep playoff runs in this league. John Farrell is someone that has all of that and it isn’t easy to find.
Farrell served as a Boston Red Sox coach from 2007 to 2010. Following that, he became their manager where he had even more success. With Farrell either as a coach or a manager, the Red Sox won the World Series in 2007 and 2013.
They also won it a year after he departed in 2018 with a lot of players that he helped develop. It was time for a fresh voice in Boston when he was fired but that doesn’t mean that he shouldn’t ever get a job again in the league, especially with his resume.
Farrell hasn’t managed since leaving Boston so you have to think that the passion to coach has to be burning when he does decide to come back. That team that takes advantage could be the Chicago White Sox.
He would be perfect for this roster looking to get over the hump and make a deep run. He has done it before and can do it again with this group.
