Wisch: History Lessens The Chances of Chicago’s First-Year Managers

Today, in honor – or at least recognition – of Sveum (who’s already 0-1 … thanks a lot, bullpen) and Ventura (whose Opening Day record is TBD) debuts, I thought I’d delve a bit into the history of Chicago’s first-year managers to see what kind of historical hill the new skippers are facing.

Lohse, Cards Spoil Marlins’ Debut In New Ballpark, 4-1

The sellout crowd in the Miami Marlins’ new ballpark cheered the introduction of their starters, who were accompanied by women dressed as Latin showgirls. There was another roar for Muhammad Ali, who delivered the first pitch. Then Kyle Lohse and the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals went to work, and the place grew quiet.

Cowley: Ozzie Has To Have The Last Word

In the recent weeks, Guillen has sounded off at his former organization, making it very clear that he was asked to leave two days before the end of the 2011 season. He’s taken great offense to reports that he quit on his former team.

Reinsdorf: Ozzie Did Not Quit On White Sox

The White Sox chairman says the colorful ex-manager intended to finish out the season in Chicago, but it made sense to let Guillen go to Florida, given changes afoot there.

World Series Game 4: Chicago White Sox v Houston Astros

Schuster: So Long Mark Buehrle

With all the rumors coming into the Winter Meetings concerning the Cubs & White Sox, who would have thought the biggest story for Chicago was someone leaving it. The Cubs still make a minor, and I emphasize a minor, deal before they leave town while the Sox are done here.
