In Episode 2 of the Killer B’s podcast, Tommy Barbee and Keelin Billue are back. It’s only been 22 days since Tony La Russa was hired, but that’s a little more than 154 days in dog time. The Killer B’s catch up on the roller coaster of awesome and not-so-awesome news, as the Hot Stove is just heating up.
Tune in as the Killer B’s discuss:
- Tony La Russa’s most recent DUI and the White Sox silence, leaving them to briefly contemplate the feasibility of making play calls from Maricopa County Jail
- A bountiful awards season for the White Sox including Silver Sluggers (Tim Anderson, José Abreu, Eloy Jiménez), a Golden Glove (Luis Robert), and AL MVP (Abreu)
- The hiring of pitching coach Ethan Katz and bench coach Miguel Cairo
- Kim Ng, the first woman GM in any of the four major sports, and the first East Asian-American general manager in major league baseball
