Sandy Alomar Jr. would make the perfect manager for the Chicago White Sox.

The Chicago White Sox is a team looking for a spark. Someone that can help them with that spark is Sandy Alomar Jr. He has been waiting in the wings for a manager job for a long time as he is with the Cleveland Guardians as their current first base coach.

Alomar Jr. would make a perfect manager for this Chicago White Sox team. He might be next in line for a lot of teams but the White Sox is a likely candidate for him when that time comes. He played for them a couple of different times over parts of five seasons.

He is clearly someone that knows the organization well. He might not be as in touch with the White Sox as he is with the Guardians but they are in second for him. If he wanted to come to manage a team in the same division as his old mates, this organization would be perfect.

It would be the first time in a long time that the White Sox had a manager like this. He can bring a lot of fresh ideas to a team and be relatable which is just what they need.

Like AJ Pierzynski, he wasn’t a Hall of Fame catcher but he was a very good one. He had a Gold Glove, an All-Star Game MVP, a Rookie of the Year, and was an All-Star six times. Catchers usually go on to make great MLB managers more than any other position and he would be great for the Sox.
