Top Manager Candidates

Recommended Posts

With the report around Buck being out, started thinking about top manager candidates.  Hope they go with a younger former player, rather than an older retread.   Sandy Alomar Jr?  Lot of former catchers make good managers.

Here is an article from the spring that shares some names.

Don't know if it will be popular here but I like Brad Ausmus

I thought he got a raw deal. Always liked him.

Whomever they bring in will have to be up to at least two more years of 90 plus losses. They need to be judged some other way than their MLB record.

I know he's more of a "retread", but he's still relatively young... what about Mike Matheny?  He just turned 48 today (9/22) and has almost 600 wins to his name.

Bobby Dickerson-

Need a developmental based coach for the next few years

I think they need a new voice, so I'm not sure hiring a guy like Dickerson would be the best idea. 

Although on the other hand Dickerson is really good at what he does so I'm not sure you'd want to lose him either.  Just hope he's not a one trick pony where he's really good as a instructor but can't handle the other aspects of managing.

No. Whoever is brought in is a caretaker and of course a fall guy.

    • o   Jorge Lopez is aiming for his 3rd consecutive Quality start ...... since August 25th, Lopez has tallied a 3.81 ERA and a 1.235 WHIP over 28.33 Innings Pitched.   Taijuan Walker has strangely flip-flopped his ERA nd WHIP numbers after being acquired in a trade with the Mariners ...... with the Mariners, he tallied a modest 4.00 ERA with an exceptional 1.074 WHIP. With the Blue Jays, Lopez has tallied an exceptional 1.54 ERA with a rather high 1.414 WHIP.  Walker's BB-rate with the Mariners was 2.667 per 9 innings, while his BB-rate with the Blue Jays is 4.243.     BALTIMORE O RIOLES Austin Charles Brian "C.B."

    • Last series of the season, the homestretch, Lopez versus who cares? Go Os! Savor every hit and run, savor even the errors and the gaffes, because after Sunday, the sun sets until Pitchers & Catchers report...if they do. edit: and if you DO care, it’s Taiwan Walker flinging for the Jays.
    • Hays should be on the IL by then.
    • Eddie Gamboa did make the majors with the Rays in 2016 and Baseball Reference has him wearing an O's hat.  Does that count?
    • My guess: If they trade Cobb at the deadline they will already have paid 2/3s of his salary.   If Elias can dump half of Cobb's salary for a Dominican player that will probably never make the majors......he is gone. I don't know Elias plans for Diaz but if he think he will be promoted by some time in May he will need to find at bats for him.   Nunez  staying on a 30 homer pace means he could make 2 or 3 million in arbitration.   I don't see Elias paying that when he can replace him with a current O's prospect make less than 600K.   Alberto will be a one and a half years from FA in July.  So if someone makes an offer that gets Elias a good return Alberto  is gone.  Valaika is almost the same player.   Hit lefties but not righties.  Plays a decent 2B with some versatility.  And Valaika will be cheaper by a million or two. Davis probably stays on the 26 man roster so they can see if there is a work stoppage in the next two years that saves the O's part of his salary.   So the bench is Davis, a catcher, an outfielder and an infielder that can play SS well enough to backup Iglesias.   With Martin at AAA to start the season Elias has to go find that player.
