    Hypothetical Question about managerial situation

    Seeing as how Baker's numerous flawed decisions of late have led to a hot bed of posting activity on the situation of late, it got me thinking....

    If you had the opportunity to replace Baker with a person, of which had no managerial experience at any level, but was at the top of his high school class to the point that he got a full ride scholarship to Vanderbilt, would you make the switch?

    I don't see a problem with this esp. if the manager is open to the new way of thinking in baseball.

    No, I do not replace him with Deliverance author James Dickey.
