    Marlins to trade for Guillen

    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...

    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?

    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.
