Hot stove 2021

Figured I’d start a thread for non-Astros offseason moves so the 2021 roster thread doesn’t get diluted.

First off, the White Sox have called the world’s bluff and hired the tank commander to manage their 2021 squad.

Smoke signals.

What a weird choice.

Do they think Southsiders are clamoring for this?

For those of y’all who think “No one could be older than JimR.”

LaRussa is.

LaRussa managed the MLB debut of:

Albert Pujols
Mark McGwire
Harold Baines

I like to deny I am old, but you guys won’t let me.

You don’t look a day older than you are!

I hope he doesn’t fall asleep during the game.

Happ fought with them all year. No thanks, imo.
