Extra Innings: 9/29/11

Extra Innings is a link dump that will run every weekday evening that features news stories that The Asylum didn't get to that day, or just posts throughout the White Sox blogosphere that are worth your attention.

- The guys over at South Side Sox get together and talk about the departure of Ozzie Guillen, and what they think it all means for his future, the team's future and the future of Kenny Williams. [South Side Sox]

- Dan McNeil teaches us that nothing proves how irrelevant Ozzie Guillen is in Chicago than writing a column about Ozzie Guillen. [Chicago Tribune]

- Doug Padilla goes over the list of potential replacement for Guillen, and who is most likely to land the job. My personal belief is that Dave Martinez is the favorite, but now that Tampa made the playoffs it could throw a wrench into the process. I'd be happy with Martinez or Sandy Alomar, and I'd take Terry Francona if he somehow becomes available too. [ESPN Chicago]

- Scott Merkin thinks that a similar White Sox roster next season could produce better results. Which makes sense seeing as how this year's squad couldn't have done much worse. [White Sox]

- J.J. doesn't seem to subscribe to Merkin's theory, however. [Beerleaguer]

- The season sucked, but at least it's over, right? [White Sox Observer]

- Donny Lucy is the biggest victim of the Ozzie Guillen trade. [MLB Trade Rumors]
