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.

    • Well that just reinforces that Houston does that which we can not do, and therefore is a poor example to follow. Don’t trade draft picks, do get active in the international market, draft big, sign kids, and trade in year four.
    • Actually, we want a sport that looks like baseball.

    • This is not a contending team...Don't be fooled by a good start. The only problem is they may be able to hang around with the real Cobb and veteran performances by Milone, and LeBlanc might prevent them from being terrible
    • I don't feel the need to see much more of DJ Stewart, quite frankly.  I'm not a Mountcastle believer but if I had to pick between the two, I'd rather see Mountcastle.   That said, I don't think Mountcastle comes up anytime soon.  
    • o   Is that over all runs, or runs-per-game ??? I ask because 1981 was a strike-shortened season, so if it was overall runs then the citation would go back even further (if you exclude strike-shortened season.)   o
    • It's still way too soon to be talking like this but it's still fun. Maybe it's a perfect storm for a team like the Orioles to get into an expanded playoff format and make some noise.  And with the way the schedule is set up, it seems like it could be possible.  The Marlins were bad to begin with, now they're having a hard time to field a team.  We should be able to beat up on them, but so will everyone else.  Boston doesn't look good, despite having some good offensive weapons.   So...In the words of Lou Brown, maybe we can "hang around for a while and see if we can give 'em all a nice big $#*%burger to eat!"
