The Dave Martinez Files

Hey guys.  I come from far away, from a very sad place.  Its inhabitants call it SSS but it is known on the interwebs as SouthSideSox.  I am a White Sox fan, you see, and we obviously hit rock bottom this year based on our predictions and expectations.  There are several of us at SSS that really like the Rays chances this playoff season and obviously envy and respect your organization.  The White Sox are the Anti-Rays if you will...there is no sun where I come from, we are entering our winter of discontent.  I hope I don't off myself in a riverbank during a blizzard.

We have one cause for hope...your team's home state has gobbled up our former manager.  Most of us were happy to see Ozzie leave since he was basically an empty uniform the last few years.  You are all very spoiled with Maddon, I'd probably cut off my left nut to get Maddon as the White Sox manager...but sadly no one is interested in a stray testicle.

There is alot of talk up north about our next manager being Francona, Alomar, LaRussa, Buddy Bell (poison me now), Joe McEwing, blah, blah blah...there is a group of us who are hot to trot for Dave Martinez.  We know he is a Maddon disciple.  However, I have come here, hat in hand, with an impending winter upon me to ask a favor.  Can you folks share stories, anecdotes, philosophy, managerial tendencies, personal experiences, opinions, impressions etc, regarding Dave Martinez?

I hate the cowbell but love the franchise, I'm rooting for the Rays all the way but I am also rooting for us to pilfer your bench coach.  Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks guys!
