White Sox Hire Benny Binion Jr.

Sorry about the typo. Make that 'Pete Rose Jr.' The White sox have hired him to manage Rookie League-Bristol (Va.) of the Appalachian League. I guess this is refering to the Bristol Sox. (http://www.minorleaguebaseball.com/index.jsp?sid=t557) So what does this mean for the White Sox? I'm willing to bet - not a whole lot. In fact, I bet that Rose Jr. will never manage in the big leagues. I guess it's just a gamble the White Sox are willing to take. But who knows? Maybe in a few years, this will be a decision that will pay off when the Kenny and Ozzie saga finally folds.
In case you were interested in Pete Rose Jr.'s potential Hall of Fame career...in 1997 in 16 plate appearances he compiled an astonishing .143 BA .250 OBP .143 SLG .393 OPS. to go along with 9 Strikeouts. In other words, don't bet the house on this thing working out.

In other White Sox news, Joey Cora is set to interview for the Milwaulkee Brewers managerial vacancy today. (Good luck beating out Bob Brenly...chump.)
