After eight years, the Chicago White Sox decided to part ways with their World Series-winning manager Ozzie Guillen. The club shipped Ozzie to South Beach before the 2011 season ended, and the front office wasted no time replacing him with former White Sox third baseman Robin Ventura.
Ventura spent 16 seasons in the big leagues, 10 of which were served with the White Sox. He was inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame in 2010.
Now he's got a new task to focus on: to take the White Sox back to the playoffs as the team's skipper.
Ozzie Guillen's last year with the club was not an ideal one when it came to success on the field. Blame that on GM Kenny Williams or Ozzie himself, but owner Jerry Reinsdorf decided that a change needed to be made. That change was to bring Ventura in as the team's manager, even though he has zero experience as a manager.
It's going to be tough to fill Ozzie's shoes because of the World Series championship he won, but recently there hasn't been too much success on the South Side.
Apparently that all started with the manager.
The following slides show why Robin Ventura will be a better manager than Ozzie Guillen.
