Tony La Russa and The Chicago White Sox rightfully won one of their best wins of the season on Monday, against the sturdy Houston Astros. A four-run eighth inning to pull out a 4-2 victory even after they looked offensively bewildered for the most part of the game.

A moment came by in the game where one of the worst defensive players in baseball, left fielder Eloy Jimenez, provided Tony La Russa’s team a two-out, two-run double to tie it at 2-2. Now Jimenez did hit the biggest hit of the night but Tony La Russa had to make a logical decision as Jimenez isn’t fleet of foot.

A fan in the stands near the Chicago dugout yelling at La Russa to put in Adam Engel as a pinch-runner, which would make sense given Adam Engel’s speed.

The Fan was yelling at the top of his lungs at manager Tony La Russa to pinch-run for Jimenez. La Russa made the substitution just a moment before the next at-bat began, which makes you wonder if the fan really was the difference-maker.

MLB fans are all now too familiar with Tony La Russa’s stunning decision-making at this point, they have been seeing a lot more since June 2022. La Russa walked Dodgers’ Trea Turner on a 1-2 count back in June, which led to a 3-run homer. Then, he did it again by walking Guardians’ Jose Ramirez on an 0-1 count. And of course, there’s the time he dozed off in the first inning of a game.

The fact of the matter is, even after all these headlines, La Russa did not hesitate once before applying a random dude’s strategy on Major League Baseball’s Chicago White Sox. Legitimately crowdsourcing managerial decisions? Wow!!

Things seem to be going just great in Chicago and somehow Tony La Russa is still alive and in charge of a Major League Baseball team. If the White Sox ever decide to move on from La Russa, perhaps they can look towards their stands for a replacement.
