I'd still see if Girardi would want the job honestly. 

I think the price is 1.5  per year. Would he work for that?

No reason to spend that much on a manager for the next two or three years. We should be able to get a pretty good manager in  the $700,000 - 900,000 range for a few years years. When the team is ready to compete, pay him more if he's a keeper or get someone with more experience if he's not.

Here's how much the lowest paid managers make in 2018. No sense over-spending.

  • Torey Lovullo, Arizona Diamondbacks: $900,000 
  • Davey Martinez, Washington Nationals: $850,000 
  • Mickey Callaway, New York Mets: $850,000 
  • Gabe Kapler, Philadelphia Phillies: $803,000 
  • Alex Cora, Boston Red Sox: $800,000 
  • Scott Servais, Seattle Mariners: $800,000 
  • Brian Snitker, Atlanta Braves: $800,000 
  • @Jim Riggleman, Cincinnati Reds: $700,000 (prorated) 
  • @Mike Shildt, St. Louis Cardinals: $700,00 (prorated)

Stand corrected. Thanks.

Buck Britton.

I really like Buck Britton and I think he is going to be a big league manager eventually, but he needs years more seasoning in the minors before he's an option. A big part of that is that he's 32 years old, now this shouldn't matter, but I'm 100% sure it does. Being younger than some of the players on the team will make it harder to command respect and authority. Again it shouldn't matter, but it does, it's just human nature.

Sounds kind of like how Showalter began.

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.

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.

I agree with you.

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

I liked him when he was catching for the Stros.

Seems to be a pretty common thing for rebuilding teams to upgrade their manager when they're ready to compete again.

So Kevin Cash should be available.

He may prove to be the exception to the rule. Rays can't afford anyone who makes more, and he's done a great job this year.

Let's see what happens if/when they move into the new ballpark in Tampa.

Dare I say... Brady Anderson?

Just so he can activate himself!

 

 

 

Too funny! Well played.

On a side note, I grew up with the pitcher in that clip. I played several sports with him as a teammate. Very good dude. He would probably love to plunk Brady.

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.

    • I guess the O's hadn't used the cheating technology yet.        
    • Does Cashner require an MLB deal?  Colon would at least draw some press. 
    • I think that was a great win.  Indiana scored on every single trip down the floor to start the second half.  It had to be 13 times down and 13 scores.  Even when they missed, they got the offensive rebound and scored.  I don't think they even made any free throws in that stretch.....it was all made baskets. Sometimes, the other team just decides to try harder and stops missing shots and they did a great job.  This had loss written all over it, so I have to give credit to the Terps for winning a game that they should have lost....which is very rare in the Turge era. 
    • I did in fact create a spreadsheet.     As mentioned, many of the pitchers were on the BA list more than once.    So, I've sorted them into four buckets according to the highest ranking they attained. BA 1-25:  30 pitchers achieved this level, and that group averaged 12.5 rWAR.     Of the 31 pitchers I categorized as "reliable starters," from this bucket you have four of the No. 1 Studs (Kershaw, Price, Strasburg and Bumgarner), one of the Solid No. 2's (Teheran), two of the Mid-Rotation guys (Buchholz and Porcello) and eight of the Middle/Back of Rotation guys (Bailey, Anderson, Tillman, Cahill, M. Perez, Hellickson, Moore and Wheeler).    So, that's 15 of the 30 who became reliable starting pitchers by my definition.  Two of the Stud Relievers, Davis and Chapman, also came from this bucket. BA 26-50: 26 pitchers achieved this level and the group averaged 7.3 rWAR.    The group includes one No. 1 Stud (Cueto), four Solid No. 2's (Gonzalez, Carrasco, Zimmermann and Chacin), one Mid-Rotation guy (Kennedy) and three Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Jurrjens, Holland and Gibson).    Nine out of 26 became reliable starters.   Stud reliever Britton also came from this category. BA 51-75: 23 pitchers reached this level, averaging 6.1 rWAR.   They include one No. 1 Stud (Scherzer), one Solid No. 2 (Arrieta), one Mid-Rotation guy (Leake), and two Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Niese and Cashner).   5 of 23 became reliable starters. BA 76-100: 20 pitchers were in this bucket.    Only two became reliable starters: Samardzija in the Mid-Rotation category and Jonathan Niese in the Mid/Back of Rotation category. Hall and Rodriguez both fall into the second bucket for now, though it's possible they could move up in future years.
