The Chicago White Sox have had an abysmal offense all season long. This comes after a few years where they were one of the more exciting groups in the league. Now, they just seem like an uninspired version of the team that we once knew.

This team is in desperate need of a new hitting coach. Ever since Frank Menechino took over, the approach has clearly changed and it has been for the worse.

They don’t hit a lot of home runs but bat for a very good average. In the year 2022, that is not a good approach to winning baseball. Every other team in the league seems to be ahead of them in that department.

If they were to make a change to this coaching position, they should do it as soon as the season ends so that 2023 isn’t affected. These three good replacements for Frank Menechino:

1. Jim Thome

The White Sox could hire an old friend that would help everyone improve.

Jim Thome is one of the greatest hitters in both White Sox history and MLB history. He is 8th on the all-time home run list with 612. Of course, power was the name of his game as he had a career OPS of .956.

He is actually the type of Hall of Famer that the White Sox should consider for a job. He knows what it takes to be a great hitter in this league and he knows what it takes to play well for the White Sox.

There is no doubt that he has the credentials needed to be a hitting coach in the big leagues. Thome is someone that already works with the White Sox now so becoming the hitting coach would only get him more involved. It would be a great idea.
