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.

    • 44,003 for the last three games for 1.3 million.Paid attendance should be close.Really nothing to be excited about but understandable. The last two years the Orioles have lost more games at home then any time ever in a 162 game season.Not sure if it is ever..Mets and Tigers both lost 107 at home consecutively . Tough to watch such bad home team baseball. Still would be the worst average hone attendance since 1978 and of course worst ever at Camden Yards.
    • Do you have a link to this pipeline article?
    • Haha I had totally forgotten.
    • I have the same issues, bad back (and down my right leg) and rotator cuffS. Doesn't wake me up tho. Yes, because of beer I sleep like a baby. I do however wake up start awake many times after 5 or 6 hours. Just from deep sleep to wide awake. I've learned to just get up, fire up my computer and waste some time, Not one drop of coffee. Take my morning drugs, several of which help or cause sleep. Go back to bed in 2 hours or stay up and take a nap in the afternoon. Tossing and turning in bed is never going to be sleep. I can't multi quote it right but I like waking up and having to go to the potty. Every night please! Let's play two! Makes the night seem longer to me.
    • Good points Drungo! I like the idea of working backwards from the desired outcomes of a system. Goal 1: Service time should no longer be a deciding factor in free agency or player promotion. I think automatic free agency after the age 27 season would be good (or after age 23 if they've never made it to the majors), with a better compensation system worked out between the team that signs and the team that loses the guy in free agency. Maybe a % of the contract value? Goal 2: Significantly reduce the bloated, inefficient system. Limit minor league affiliates to 2 full season teams, 1 short season team, and whatever overseas academies they want. Pay the minor leaguers better. Cut the draft in half (20 rounds).
    • As long as it isn't DJ on horseback! Otherwise I'd worry that the ball would hit the horse square in the forehead, risking career-ending injury to the glove (not whip)-wielding jockey as its knees buckled.
