Well the White Sox made it official today. Jerry Manuel is gone.

I'm relieved but not happy. Sure Manuel underachieved, and yes, he was a poor bench coach. But he was a very likable person. And his even temperemant should have been just what a veteran team would need to reach the postseason. But in the end it had to be this way. The Sox failed to build off their 2000 success and its time to start a new chapter.

I'll try to get to a post season wrap-up in the next couple of days.
