Report: White Sox interviewed Guillén for manager job

The White Sox interviewed Ozzie Guillén for their managerial opening on Monday, NBC Sports Chicago’s Chuck Garfien said on Thursday’s episode of the “White Sox Talk Podcast.”

“I can tell you that Ozzie on Monday met with the White Sox front office, Rick Hahn, Chris Getz, Jeremy Haber,” Garfien reported.

The White Sox’ managerial search is nearing the one-month mark after Tony La Russa announced he was stepping down due to health concerns.

There has been much discussion around Guillén as a possible candidate for the opening. He managed the White Sox from 2004-11 and led them to their first championship in 88 years in 2005.

He led the Sox to two playoff appearances and five winning seasons before leaving the team in the final days of the 2011 season.

Sounds like they're hiring Pedro Grifol.

If Girardi can lead the Phils to the Series, I don't see why Guillen can't succeed.

AG1F, I don't get that feeling here in Chicago, but it's possible. Rick Hahn would have one hell of a sell job to do - not only doesn't Grifol match many of the things he said the Sox were looking for, but he also doesn't have Jerry Reinsdorf ties (which would mean Hahn wasn't overruled). Hot name right now is Kevin Long of the Phillies.

And just to add context to the headline here - Dan Bernstein at 670 The Score reported Guillen's interview was 5.5 hours long, so it wasn't just a token talk. I do not personally think he will be the choice, though.

Anyone know where I can get some good crow?

Pedro Grifol, longtime coach with the Royals, is expected to be the next White Sox manager, an announcement that could come later this week.

Not crow, but, I mean, perhaps close enough:
