In a shocking announcement from the White Sox today, Ricky Renteria will no longer manage the team. In Rick Hahn’s press conference today, he also announced Don Cooper will no longer be with the organization.

Renteria, hired in October 2016, oversaw the White Sox rebuild until this past shortened 2020 season, where the White Sox exited the playoffs in the Wild Card round after a 35-25 season. However, including the Wild Card Series against the Oakland A’s, the White Sox finished 3-10, after clinching their first playoff birth since 2008.

Cooper has been with the White Sox since 2002 and won the 2005 World Series with the team.

This could be indicative of the White Sox taking their next step into World Series contention. With notable gaps in pitching and right field, fans across Chicago expect General Manager Rick Hahn to make some splashes in free agency in the coming offseason. Although Renteria and Cooper were a big part of bringing the White Sox back to relevancy in 2020.

Joe McEwing should be the natural choice here. He managed many of these guys in the minors. He was manager of the year twice in two different organizations. He has been sitting next to Renteria the past two seasons and has seen what has been wrong with decisions made. The few games he has had the reins he has won them all. More energy and work ethic than three people have and he relates to these young talents that the White Sox have.
