#3: Sandy Alomar Jr.

After Terry Francona missed 48 games in 2020 due to health reasons, Sandy Alomar Jr. stepped in his role as acting manager of the Cleveland Indians. Alomar filled this role seamlessly.

Cleveland finished tied for second in the AL Central with the White Sox and won seven of their final eight regular-season games to earn the No. 4 seed in the AL playoff picture. Alomar went 27-19 after Francona stepped aside before the New York Yankees eliminated Cleveland in two games in the Wild Card Series.

Of course, Alomar is no stranger to the White Sox organization. He spent parts of five years of his 20-year playing career in Chicago, hitting .257 with 19 home runs.

In addition to Alomar’s recent managerial successes in Cleveland, the Puerto Rican native also appeals to Chicago’s heavily-international roster. Alomar, similarly to Cora, surely will be able to mix the cohesiveness of this roster.
