Re: Possible Managerial Candidates
While it does appear that Dusty will be offered the job at least another year, I think a good option might be to promote Speier, keep Price as pitching coach, but replace Jacoby as hitting coach. I'm not that up on hitting coaches, but there has to be an upgrade out there somewhere. (Love to see a new hitting coach whether Dusty comes back or not).
I'm not saying they ought to do it, but three additional in-house options: Ken Griffey Sr. has spent a lot of time in the organization and you know he has to have his eyes on a big league manager's job. Dave Bell seems to be on a fast track and a FO favorite. Rick Sweet is still floating around the organization, isn't he?
Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
