White Sox’s Renteria gets a full shot at turning team around

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Rick Renteria has been here before.

He was managing the Chicago Cubs in 2014 when they were building a team that would end its century-long championship drought.

But just as that team was coming together for a four-year postseason run, Renteria’s contract was terminated when the Cubs had a chance to bring in free-agent manager Joe Maddon.

Now 58, Renteria landed with the White Sox and replaced Robin Ventura as manager just as the team began its own massive rebuilding project. Now in his fourth season on the South Side, Renteria’s patience is finally getting rewarded.

That is, unless Joe Maddon suddenly decides he wants to go to the South Side…..
