The Marlins are close to a deal that would acquire them a new manager, current White Sox skipper Ozzie Guillen.

Boom!

Multiple baseball sources, including the Chicago Sun-Times have cited direct sources of a trade that would send White Sox vocal manager Ozzie Guillen to the Florida Marlins. It is unclear what the White Sox would get in return,

Up until this evening, I had no idea this was even a feasible possibility in trading for a manager. Hmm...

Well, peace and quiet for one thing. Fewer twitter controversies for another...

Tom Lawless was traded for Pete Rose who was named player/manager, and Manny Sanguillian was traded for Chuck Tanner in the 70's.

Will the Sox get LoMo or a box of McKeon's stogies?

The Marlins got screwed on that deal. :)

Apparently it won't be LoMo or anyone on the Marlins' 40-man roster.

Joe Cronin was a manager when he was traded, granted he also played SS.

Bill DeWitt was most famous for dealing Frank Robinson, but he also traded Jimmie Dykes (manager) for Joe Gordon (manager)

Wonder if we could make this a 3 way deal where the Sox get Dusty to fill the void.

I like that deal.
The Washington Senators traded Manager Gil Hodges to the Mets in1971 for two rookies.

Didn't Billy Beane trade Art Howe to the Mets?

He was "released" but the White Sox will receive infielder Ozzie Martinez and a minor league pitcher if (when) he signs with the Marlins

I have no idea why a team would want idiot Ozzie as a manager. The guy is a flaming jackass and I'd even rather have Dusty Toothpick over him.

Agreed.

To make matters worse, latest reports speculate fellow Venezuelan disaster Carlos Zambrano is likely to join him in Miami.

Makes me wonder if that will free up one of their arms to come to Cincinnati, like say Anibal Sanchez?

Straight up for Stubbs. I do that.

Many players enjoy playing for him apparently. That's got to be worth something. I doubt Dusty makes all his millions strictly from his managerial decisions.

Dusty IS the void.

Ozzie is a gate attraction and gets media attention. I'm not wild about his managerial style either, but he will certainly draw national and local attention to the Marlins with his inevitable funny quotes and blow-ups. It's ironic that a team like the Marlins (who sent Logan Morrison to the minors for tweeting... allegedly) would want him, but apparently they're more interested in their Q-rating than maximizing their chances of winning.

Bet this is the first time two Ozzies have been in a trade.

Ozzie and Zambrano either work together miraculously or fall out spectacularly.
It would be very interesting.

It's hard to see the latter not happening, but you never know.

A big difference between Ozzie and Dusty is that Ozzie seems to create a storm of tension around him. I cannot see how that would be good for a team's long-term stability.

In a bit of a side story, White Sox GM Kenny Williams named Joey Cora interim manager but then changed his mind and turned the team over to pitching coach Don Cooper.
