Chicago White Sox Considering Managerial Change?

That's pretty much the word from Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times, who reports today that, "there’s growing suspicion the curtain is about to close on either manager Ozzie Guillen or general manager Ken Williams — or maybe both."

There have been a ton of ups and downs in the relationship between Guillen and the White Sox, including a 2005 World Series victory and another division crown in 2008, but the White Sox are on their way to missing the postseason for the third consecutive year. Guillen has been Chicago's skipper since 2004, but the organization has entertained the possibility of changing managers in the past, and they may be fed up with Guillen's constantly controversial act.

As Rob Neyer noted for Baseball Nation, Guillen has done well with the White Sox, but he hasn't exactly brought the team to new levels of success beyond the 2005 season. Most people tend to view Guillen as one of the better managers in the game, so he'll surely land a new job as soon as he goes out and seeks one, but he's also the kind of figure that won't necessarily fit into every organization.
