3. Brad Ausmus
The Chicago White Sox should go younger for a Tony La Russa replacement.
Sometimes age brings wisdom. However, every now and again it is nice to think of something fresh in terms of an idea. The previous two named in this article are guys that always come up in managerial conversation whenever someone is looking.
It would be nice to have either of those guys too because they have a lot of experience and come from outside of the organization. The White Sox should strongly consider someone that is from outside of the White Sox family to bring in and Brad Ausmus is the perfect candidate. He, unlike the other two, never really come up as a possibility.
He brings experience as he was a manager with the Detroit Tigers from 2014-2017 and the Los Angeles Angels in 2019. He hasn’t managed since but he currently acts as a coach for the 2022 Oakland A’s. There is no doubt that he wants to get back into the manager’s seat.
Ausmus has enough experience as a player and a manager to be a great young candidate for this White Sox team. The A’s aren’t very good in 2022 because they sold all of their parts in an attempt to rebuild so Ausmus would have to be looking to come to a team ready to win now. It is something for both sides to consider.
We don’t know for sure if the White Sox will move on from Tony La Russa or Miguel Cairo but these three candidates are all great for different reasons. Hopefully, whoever manages this team next helps them win the World Series.
