3. Sandy Alomar Jr.

Sandy Alomar Jr. would be an amazing fit as the Chicago White Sox manager.

As mentioned before, the White Sox love their former players. Sandy Alomar Jr. played with the White Sox for parts of five seasons. He was a very good player that saw him have six All-Star appearances (with an All-Star Game MVP), a Gold Glove, and a Rookie of the Year Award.

He was better than a depth player but he wasn’t a superstar either. Those are the payers that often become the best managers in the game. If the White Sox hired a guy like that, it might work out for them right away.

Alomar Jr. is currently the first base coach for the Cleveland Guardians who the Chicago White Sox know well. They came in and took the AL Central from the White Sox in a very embarrassing (for Chicago) fashion.

Coaching under Terry Francona has to have helped Alomar Jr. learn a thing or two about managing and now would be a great time for him to make that jump. Francona is the best coach in the MLB right now in the opinion of a lot of people so getting his guy might be a good idea.

The Guardians are going to play in the playoffs which might also help Alomar Jr. learn some things as well. It is a nice thought but the White Sox would have to pry him out of a good situation. It is certainly something for both of them to wonder about.
