Top Manager Candidates

Recommended Posts

My vote is HOU’s  pitching coach Brent Storm. Look what he’s doing there. He could also bring on some of their top assistants. He’s 69, but i think it could be a fit.  My other choices,

-Thome

-Varitek

-Matheny

I can see a career minor league manager, a patient low-key player development guy, getting the manager job for 2-3 years. And then, as the fall guy, he will be replaced by a hotshot young manager. 

Agreed.

Big no on Matheny. Encouraged clubhouse bullying and was on non-speaking terms with one of his players. He was so bad the Cardinals fired him when they had a decent record - and they have played way better since he left.

I'd be surprised if Matheny gets any job, period.

Yeah. He's done. Bud Norris, Enforcer.

Nothing like hiring a retread in MLB. It’ll just take more time with him.

I feel like Girardi ends up being the guy.

No way Girardi takes on a rebuild at this point. I could see him going to Anaheim. The Dodgers may even have an opening if they fall short again this year.

No way the O's pay for someone like Girardi.

The new guy is going to be making 1M or less.

That too. But Girardi wouldn't take this job even if they were willing to pay up 

I suspect Ron Johnson will manage the next 3 years. Then they will hire a bigger name. It will be Dave Teembly part 2.

Wasn't Trembley expected to lead a competitive team?

Maybe in the owners eyes. I'm not sold ownership doesn't expect more now than we do. The direction of this club is still cloudy to me. Especially if Brady is still involved in running things. We'll see.

Yes, I was stunned when I read MacPhail's comments in the Sun in 2009 or 2010 that the team had been rebuilt and should be a winner.

Who? Davis and Joseph? Davis should welcome anyone who even considers writing his name in the lineup. And Joseph seems like he’d be happy with a new direction.

I think Britton would be a good choice, but don’t see them doing anything so bold.

Mayne he might be. Just a side note to you. The Round Rock Express will be the 3A team for the  Astros. I'm thrilled with that. As for a new manager for the O's I don't have any real preference. That it be the GM's choice. A younger man that will move the organization into the 21st century.

    • You very clearly stated her value was her looks and not her intellectual contributions to the broadcast which probably says more about you than it does about her.  Best of luck to Sara. 
    • Hunter interviewed her on the radio pregame, and she said that she was not yet able to reveal what her next job would be but she would be soon. So this looks more like she is leaving for another opportunity then MASN getting rid of her.
    • Game 98, July 21 There were some excellent defensive plays in yesterday’s one hitter, four of which I’ll mention here. - With nobody out and a runner on 1st in the 6th inning, Chris Davis gloved a hard-hit ball over the bag, stepped on the edge facing home plate, took one more step towards home as he pivoted, and fired a strike to 2B that allowed Villar to apply the tag and complete a DP.  Davis has always been very good at feeds to 2B and this was a good example. - With Givens in the game in the 9th, Devers laced a rising liner to RF that Mancini went back on and almost misjudged it but he leaped and made a nice outstretched catch. - The next hitter hit a ball in the RCF gap but Wilkerson raced over and made a nice backhand catch while running pretty much full speed. - The final hitter of the game hit a ground ball in the 1B/2B hole, but Chris Davis made a diving stop and an accurate flip to Givens, who hustled over to cover 1B on the play.    The defense was in a RH pull shift, so Davis was about halfway between 1st and 2nd when he made the stop.    The stop, the accurate throw from his knees at that distance, and Given’s presence of mind to get to 1B on a ball hit that far towards 2B were all very impressive.    
    • Really?  That's incredible considering all the complete games pitchers got in the 70s.  Where did you discover this fact?
    • Impressive!    His breaking stuff had great late movement yesterday.    Still, he got away with some hard hit balls, especially in the later innings.    Hyde picked the right time to pull him.   
    • She did a good job.    It’s not rocket science, so I’m sure they’ll find a competent replacement.    It will be interesting to hear what her next gig is.
