New White Sox manager Robin Ventura has been all but ignored by the media since Theo Epstein was named president of the Cubs, but he was recently spotted in Epstein’s shadow for a few seconds during a press conference.

“Hey! Over here!” Ventura shouted as members of the Chicago sports media hung on every word Epstein said. “Remember what a controversial hire I was!”

Unfortunately for Ventura, he then evaporated into thin air, along with Sox GM Kenny Williams, who had been trying to climb into Epstein’s shadow as well but didn’t make it in time.
