Chicago White Sox

The White Sox keep getting better. Is manager Rick Renteria getting better, too?

It surely will be his if — and it’s a big “if” — the Sox, a best-in-baseball 16-4 over their last 20 games as they arrived in Pittsburgh, keep bashing at the plate and hanging in there on the mound until they’ve won a division title.

Rookie manager Rocco Baldelli won the AL award in 2019 largely because the Twins were the team that made the most dramatic jump in the standings, from 78 in 2018 to 101.

But has Renteria — who is signed through 2021 — erased any doubt that he’s a vital piece of the puzzle going forward as the Sox aim to maximize a giant opportunity to win for a while?

Sox pitcher Gio Gonzalez had seven big-league managers before Renteria, a group that includes Melvin, Davey Johnson, Dusty Baker and Craig Counsell and has done a ton of winning.

As Fournette apparently sees it, Foles, who enters the season as the backup to Mitch Trubisky , isn’t even a real quarterback.

• Speaking of the Cubs, lots of luck to newly acquired outfielder Billy Hamilton , a real speedster.
