Default Guillen named Chicago manager

The White Sox will name Ozzie Guillen as their manager at a news conference scheduled for later this afternoon.

The 39-year-old Guillen, who has no managerial experience, will succeed Jerry Manuel. Cito Gaston reportedly was the only other candidate interviewed by White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf. Gaston, 59, had a 683-636 record in nine seasons as manager of the Blue Jays, winning World Series titles in 1992 and '93.

Guillen was a fan favorite as a player, having spent the first 13 of his 16 big-league seasons as the White Sox's shortstop. He retired after the 2000 season and spent 2003 as Jack McKeon's third-base coach for the World Series champion Florida Marlins.

"Right now I'm pretty positive," Guillen told the Chicago Tribune over the weekend. " ... I'm really looking to wear No. 13 again. I'm ready to help [the White Sox] win."

Guillen was a career .264 hitter with 28 homers and 619 RBI. The three-time All-Star also played for the Baltimore Orioles, Atlanta Braves and Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

Guillen began his coaching career with the Montreal Expos in 2001.

The White Sox finished 86-76 and in second place in the AL Central, four games behind the Minnesota Twins.

Guillen would take over a team that fell way short of expectations. The White Sox were the favorites to win the AL Central in 2003 after adding pitchers Bartolo Colon and Billy Koch to a lineup that already included sluggers Frank Thomas and Magglio Ordonez.

But the White Sox started slowly and were 25-33 on June 4. The team showed improvement, then Williams acquired second baseman Roberto Alomar and outfielder Carl Everett early in the summer.

Manuel appeared to have saved his job when the White Sox played well immediately after the All-Star break. Chicago, however, was just 25-28 since Aug. 2 and Manuel was fired the day after the season ended.
