Top Manager Candidates

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking Bobby Dickerson might be the choice.  As someone has noted on another thread there is a pregame segment on Bobby Dickerson before almost every game.  It could just be a random chance or the "organization" could be building fan support for their choice.

Condescending, self-important, overwhelming sense of inflated value.. Sarcastic. Cynical. 

The Anti Brooks Robinson. 

 

And Steve Phillips? Don't get me started.  It's like the two of them are five drinks in at a cocktail party.

You say that is if they are bad things.

The fact that he, like Beltran, speaks both English and Spanish is a huge plus (I think).

Hunter mentioned on the broadcast that Bobby Dickerson speaks Spanish.

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

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. 

This is obvious a likely choice, but realistically, you could give an average joe off the street the job and it’s not gonna be a “fall guy” situation.

Not using any point of the last 12 months to designate a “fall guy” pretty much removes the chance of there being one during the rebuild.

Ceiling guy...maybe.  Such as:

Skipper has taken us as far as he can!  Orioles replace manager after 68 wins

Dickerson would be the one guy they currently have who I’d keep. 

But I’d like a clause in a new deal that keeps him in the organization in some capacity if they decide to go with someone else later.

I truly dislike him as a human being.  Just from his style of interacting with others on the "have a take" shows that he inhabits. 

I similarly have a strong negative reaction to him.

When a team losses a 110 games I am not interested in promoting from within.

While I do not like recycled managers, I also am not interested in hiring someone who has never managed before.Too much unknown and the major leagues is not the place to learn on the job even when rebuilding.  There are a lot of long time major league players that were considered smart gritty players that would make good managers.  However, when they get a major league manager's job, the reality is that they often are in over their head and being a player that projects to be a manager does not translate in reality (Mathany, Ausmus, Ventura and Weiss) .  I like managers that have a record of success in the minor leagues and gained experience by managing hundreds of games.

I have a name of someone I would like for the Orioles to consider and it is a good memorable name, Stubby Clapp.  He is 45 years old and has managed the Memphis Red Birds to two consecutive PCL titles. I think he would be good with young players and bring a different and new energy to the organization.

The Orioles had success once before with a manager who was very short, colorful and had a mediocre playing career as a 2nd basemen in the Cardinals organization and sometimes history repeats itself.

Sold.  If he works hard and cheap I am all for him for these next two seasons.

But what if he's a spy for the Blue Jays?

I don’t understand the need to hire a guy that’s “Cheap”. I’d want the best player development manager that we can find. I personally like Ausmus and believe he could do a good job with the young guys. i don’t expect he’d be looking break the bank.

Ultimately it will be Duquette that has more to do with success by getting the right players. I don’t think we have any star caliper position guys in the minors

    • Alberto will make the most of those arbitration eligible guys at maybe $3 million next year. Those other guys made $10+ million. Nunez and Valaika could be non-tendered, but not because of their exorbitant salaries. I don't think Armstrong will get non-tendered because he might make $800K rather than $600K. Santander, Severino and Alberto aren't getting non-tendered this year and none of them have enough surplus value to merit trading. Maybe Santander if he has a great 2021 is a trade chip, but he needs to show it for a full season to be a valuable trade chip. Trading Alberto or Severino would just be shuffling deck chairs and my guess is it would look bad if they traded EVERYONE that made over the minimum. Cobb could be traded but they probably get a better return at the trade deadline, and my guess is that they would end up having to pick up the same amount of salary if they traded him in July as they would if they traded him in the offseason.
    • o   Between 1954 and 1957, each of the MVO's for those seasons are not in the Orioles Hall-of-Fame ...... they are Chuck Diering (1954), Dave Philley (1955), Bob Nieman (1956), and Billy Gardner (1957.)   The other MVO's since then whom are not in the Orioles Hall-of-Fame are Don Aase (1986), Larry Sheets (1987), Mike Devereaux (1992), Rafael Palmeiro (1995, 1996, and 1998), Randy Myers (1997), Delino DeShields Sr. (2000), Jeff Conine (2001), Rodrigo Lopez (2002), Jay Gibbons (2003), Miguel Tejada (2004 and 2006), Aubrey Huff (2008), Luke Scott (2010), and Nelson Cruz (2014.)   More recent MVO's whom are not yet in the Orioles Hall-of-Fame but who may be inducted in the future upon eligibility are Nick Markakis (2007), Adam Jones (2011, 2012, and 2018), Chris Davis (2013 and 2015), Manny Machado (2016), Jonathan Schoop (2017), Trey Mancini (2019), and Anthony Santander (2020) ...... Nelson Cruz was only with the Orioles for one season (2014), but oh what a season it was (both for Cruz individually, and for the Orioles as a team.)     M.V.O. ) (1954 - Present)   1954 – Chuck Diering 1955 – Dave Philley 1956 – Bob Nieman 1957 – Billy Gardner 1958 – Gus Triandos 1959 – Gene Woodling 1960 – Brooks Robinson 1961 – Jim Gentile 1962 – Brooks Robinson 1963 – Stu Miller 1964 – Brooks Robinson 1965 – Stu Miller 1966 – Frank Robinson 1967 – Frank Robinson 1968 – Dave McNally 1969 – Boog Powell 1970 – Boog Powell 1971 – Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson 1972 – Jim Palmer 1973 – Jim Palmer 1974 – Paul Blair, Mike Cuellar 1975 – Ken Singleton 1976 – Lee May 1977 – Ken Singleton 1978 – Eddie Murray 1979 – Ken Singleton 1980 – Al Bumbry 1981 – Eddie Murray 1982 – Eddie Murray 1983 – Eddie Murray, Cal Ripken Jr. 1984 – Eddie Murray 1985 – Eddie Murray 1986 – Don Aase 1987 – Larry Sheets 1988 – Eddie Murray, Cal Ripken Jr. 1989 – Gregg Olson 1990 – Cal Ripken Jr. 1991 – Cal Ripken Jr. 1992 – Mike Devereaux 1993 – Chris Hoiles 1994 – No Award Given 1995 – Rafael Palmeiro 1996 – Rafael Palmeiro 1997 – Randy Myers 1998 – Rafael Palmeiro 1999 – B.J.

    • I have thought Iglesias could be a prime trade target.  It could come this offseason or perhaps we (and an acquiring team) would want to see him off to a good start offensively - even 775 OPS should generate a quality return.  Depending on how Iggy is doing would impact the prospect I want back.  Top 15ish sounds about right, but maybe more if Iggy does well in April and May ahead of a deal. Iggy should have won the MVP.  Crazy to lineup Mountcastle's stats with Santander's and give it to Santander.  Anyone voting for Alberto, Nunez or Severino in their top 3 should be disqualified from ever watching baseball again.
    • Elias has made moves to save money.  Traded Villar, Bundy, Cashner.  This off season Cobb is in the last year of his contract.   Alberto has his 2nd salary arbitration year. Santander, Severino, Armstrong, Valaika and Nunez are all arbitration eligible for the first time. Will Elias make moves to keep the team cheap?
    • The right choice IMO.    Congrats to him.    I hope his strong performance in a relatively short period this year carries over into 2021. Santander has now played just a little more than a full season’s worth of games (176) and his 162-game average is 29 HR, 91 RBI to go with his career .759 OPS (which includes his two partial Rule 5 seasons).     
    • o   Santander won it (thanks for the info, Sports Guy.)   This is mildly reminiscent of when Erik Bedard led the American League in Strikeouts-Per-9 Innings (10.929), Hits-Per-9 Innings (6.973), and was among the league leaders in Strikeouts (221) in spite of having missed the final 5 weeks of the season due to injury.   o
