The Chicago White Sox officially introduced new manager Robin Ventura on Tuesday. Ventura becomes the 39th manager in White Sox history. The former major leaguer has no prior managerial experience and takes over a Southside ballclub that finished third in the AL Central division, 16 games back of Detroit, at 79-and-83.
White Sox general manager Kenny Williams revealed a shocking revalation after the indroduction, saying that he briefly considered offered a player-manager position to the team's current first baseman Paul Konerko. Ultimately, though, Williams decided against that thought when he realized it may not be in the best interest of the team.
