Why wouldn't they bring back Cora? The whole cheating thing has cooled off and he's done his penance.

Bloom may have his eye on someone out of the Tampa Bay chain.  Let's see how much heat comes out of the Astros playoff run.  Feels like they are the villains out there, so I'm not sure folks will be satisfied that Cora has done his penance.  I would be surprised if he and Beltran  get managerial offers in the next 3 years.  Cora could possibly move into a front office and then go down on the field as an interim manager.  Heck, you could see Rizzo hiring him as a special assistant since he's a former Nat.

White Sox fire Rick Renteria, just as the Cubs did at a similar stage of their rebuild. Which rebuilding team will hire him next?

They also fire long-time pitching coach Don Cooper.

Cora, Hinch rumors abound but the internet says Hinch to Detroit and Cora back to Boston.

AJ Pierzynski would be the likely cheap, in-house option. He's some kind of advisor to the team or similar.

Wait, so they develop the pitchers that we couldn't and their pitching coach gets fired?

Hinch is supposed to have close ties to the White Sox GM from his playing days...
