2. Kevin Long
Kevin Long might be the perfect fit for what the Chicago White Sox needs to fix.
The only person on this list that is currently serving as a coach in the World Series is Kevin Long. An announcement would probably come after the World Series at this point anyway because the league doesn’t like big announcements from other teams taking away from the fall classic.
However, Kevin Long would be perfect for this White Sox team. He is the hitting coach for that Philly team that absolutely mashes baseballs. Their offense is so good and nobody questions it. He gets a lot of praise from baseball people for helping them take a huge step offensively.
If he got his hands on Eloy Jimenez, Luis Robert, Andrew Vaughn, and Yoan Moncada amongst others as a manager knowing what he knows, they might be able to turn it around in one offseason. The impact that someone like this can make on a struggling team is incredible.
If Long is an actual option for the White Sox, they should strongly consider it. Their offense clearly needs a jump and change to its approach which Long has proven that he can help with. If he ends up being the person who lands the job, White Sox fans can be happy about it.
