Which Sopranos Capo would make the BEST White Sox manager??

As modern MLB teams continue to try and run their organizations like Fortune 500 companies instead of the family owned businesses they once were, I like to try and think through their decision trees using more modest tools. Managing people is still managing people whether you are in a finance firm, a construction company or an organized crime family. That final example gives me a nice little pallet to try and examine what I think the White Sox might be looking for at the skipper position.
