Today in White Sox History: November 8


2000 — On the basis of an unexpected Central Division championship and 95-win season, Sox skipper Jerry Manuel was named the Manager of the Year by the Baseball Writers Association of America. He ran away with the award, beating out Art Howe of Oakland, 134-74. Manuel got 25 first-place votes out of a possible 28.

Fairly or not, I can’t think of Jerry Manuel without thinking about Neal Cotts in Yankee Stadium.

Right: Very true. And also how Lou Piniella completely outmanaged him in the ALDS vs. Seattle in 2000.

I kind of liked Manuel. The guy before did not have a brain.

Are you talking about the discussion at first in the 10th. I do not blame Manuel. Sox problem was a familiar one in the playoffs prior to 05. They could not get a clutch hit.
