News came down on Wednesday night that the White Sox received permission from the Angels to interview Tony La Russa for their managerial opening. The 76-year-old looks more and more like a front-runner to land the job. For his own part, La Russa is reportedly excited about his upcoming conversations with the White Sox, per Bruce Levine of 670 the Score.

La Russa managed the White Sox from 1979 until 1986 — his first managerial role in the majors — so there’s certainly a nostalgic angle that makes sense here. He also fits the bill that was laid out by GM Rick Hahn: He’s a voice technically coming from outside the organization, and he hard-checks the championship experience box. La Russa has six times managed a team into the World Series, winning the ring in 1989 with Oakland, and in 2006 and 2011 with St. Louis. He retired after winning the 2011 World Series with the Cardinals. He spent the past season as a special advisor to the Angels, and the White Sox’s opening is an appealing position, even without the circle-of-life angle.

For the White Sox part, Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf has expressed regret in the past for allowing his GM-at-the-time Ken Harrelson to fire La Russa midway through 1986. What’s more, La Russa and Reinsdorf were often seen watching White Sox games together prior to 2020, writes the Athletic’s James Fegan. A committed La Russa must be a tantalizing possibility for ownership, but the White Sox are still early in their search process, per Fegan.

In the meantime, Hahn has his hands full trying to upgrade right field and the starting rotation. Though they have a lot of young pitching for whom they are closely tracking development (Reynaldo Lopez, Dane Dunning, Dylan Cease, Garrett Crochet, Jonathan Stiever, Michael Kopech, and others), Hahn doesn’t plan on just waiting for the kids to grab the reins, per this piece from Fegan. Lucas Giolito, Dallas Keuchel, and Dunning are slotted into the rotation, but they might explore outside the organization for back-end upgrades. The White Sox have no shortage of guys who could capably fill out those last two rotation spots, but with the Twins and Indians set to compete again, their margin for error may again be slim.

White Sox Hire Tony La Russa, Let The Air Out of Their Own Tires .
The Chicago White Sox, an already sturdy tree budding with spectacular young talent bursting with fun and individuality and imagination, have just needlessly pu t a governor on their own success. If not in the immediate term, then in the intermediate and certainly long-term. © Provided by The Big Lead Jayne Kamin-Oncea/Getty Images Hiring 76-year-old Tony La Russa, a man who has forgotten more baseball ideals than most will ever know, sounds good on paper. The man's a winner with Hall of Fame pedigree and is battle-tested. Sorry, let me be more specific. It sounds good on one man's paper.
