How would everyone feel about him managing the Nats? Unless Showalter wears out his welcome rather quickly (which for some posters it appears he has), the O's manager position won't be open for a few years.

He has spoken numerous times about getting back into the game, but it seems he is all over the place. I feel like there has been talked about ownership, GM-type role, and manager. What do you all think would be the best position for him?

I think he'd be the best manager we've ever seen... Sorry Earl. :D

I imagine there would be great attention to detail, like Buck. I also imagine he would have the immediate respect of everyone in the clubhouse. Outside of that, I have no idea how he'd do with managerial decisions.

Until he tells Machado he's not as good as Beltre.:)

Wow it only took one reply before we saw a shot at Cal. That joke is so annoying and tired.

I think the amount of shock in Balitmore when Cal pipped up with that horrible opinion was EF6 level. It will be years before he lives it down.

Most guys didn't grow up in the Ripken household, where Daddy taught fundamentals on both baseball and life.

I read an article the other day where pedestrians are getting run over by cars at at a pretty alarming rate as compared to the past. The basic gist of the article was that in the old days kids were taught to be attentive, to look out for cars and be careful. Today's kids/younger generation now cross the street while texting and listening to their ipods etc. They believe they have the right of way and the cars need to look out for them.

Every new generation has its strengths and weaknesses.
