Ozzie Guillen

Resume: World Series champion with the White Sox in 2005

Speaking of a loud voice that will change the culture, Ozzie Guillen is looking for a job. The former White Sox and Marlins manager was as colorful as they came in the mid-2000’s and always gave a great soundbite.

Even with the personality and challenging of umpires, Guillen won a World Series with the White Sox in his second season with the team. During his 2005 championship campaign, Chicago won 11 of 12 playoff games with their only loss coming in the ALCS against the Angels.

Just as impressive is the fact Guillen went from winning the 2003 World Series with Florida as a player right into the White Sox job.

Whether or not Guillen is the right fit for Philadelphia is yet to be seen, but the media will certainly enjoy him 162 days out of the year. And if anyone can get into Maikel Franco and Odubel Herrera’s thick skulls, it’s Guillen.
