The Greatest Job In The World

The Chicago White Sox are the worst team in baseball. And there's only one thing to do when you're a game and a half back from the Royals: extend your manager's contract. After all, their skipper is a genuinely great guy who never causes any problems. Oh wait, he's actually a nut job who causes controversy for the sake of causing controversy. But they had to keep him through the next five years. His contract is up, and they don't want to downgrade. Oh wait, his contract runs through next year with a 2009 club option. Sports is a funny business. If I did as bad as a job at work as Ozzie Guillen did this year with the Sox, I'd be out of a job. Guillen, Matt Millen and Carl Peterson get paid millions when they blatantly do not do their job right. Granted, the White Sox did just win a championship recently. But with a year left on his contract, why wouldn't you wait until next year's results to be giving this guy a five year extension? It's a sad day when the coaches and general managers of sports are being treated with the same amount of pseudo-reality as the players. Try going to work tomorrow drunk and curse out a customer. Let's see if your boss promotes you.
