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.
