I agree. I'm a huge fan of Hershiser too, but I think Martinez has more pertinent coaching experience. Maddon has noted several times that Martinez is responsible for a great deal of the daily operations of the Rays.
Bell is an intriguing candidate and knows the game as thoroughly as anyone. I think the jury may still be out on his ability to develop players. He's at least close to becoming a serious candidate or a MLB coach.
