    WHITE SOX HIRE VENTURA AS MANAGER, Y NOT RED SOX HIRE VARITEK AS MANAGER?

    i think this could be the BEST out of the box move the sox could make. varitek would make a great manager. he knows the pitchers and personne l and pitchers and clearly knows what the organization wants. i dont blame him for the locker room meltdown, that was on theo. you can only assert yourself so much and no further. you want him going to tito and tellling on other guys? of course not..

    You want the guy as manager and he probably sulked all year because he wasn't the full time catcher.

    And where was the captain during the month of September?
    Just asking.

    No way it is on the GM.  Varitek didn't have to "rat" the boys to Francona, but should have made his presence felt as "The Captain."  Additionally, he is theri catcher and should be able to "reach" them a bit better.  They don't respect/respond to him in that capacity, why does a "Peter Principle" mentality qualify him to be a manger?

    FISK!

    If the White Sox could hire Venture, then the Red Sox could hire Carlton Fisk.

    What is Fisk doing right now? Would he have any interest? If so, I agree..

    I am sure that whatever he is doing he would still consider it.

    Give him a good bench coach (oh man we need Brad Mills), Pitching Coach, etc and he could be a great leader.

    How about making Eric Wedge his bench coach?

    Varitek as a manager ?     He's too close to the team.    Needs time to work his way up in the system.

    what is with the big love fest for varitek?  he has sulked because of his reduced role.  where was he in september when the sox were collapsing and there was obvious internal issues going on with the team.  as the captain, he should have stepped up and taken charge when francona wasn't getting through to anyone.

    An absolutely absurd idea from every perspective.

    No managerial experience.
    Too close to the players
    Too close to the disaster of last month, ie. tainted big time

    A waste of a thread.

    Tek should have the "C" Stripped from his chest

    I'd like to hear what Francona really thinks about him - no filters.
