    Indeed. I didn't think Walt's comments to the contrary after the game on Tuesday were particularly compelling. This was Cast's decision and he made the right one. Kudos to him

    There is a chance.

    There's a better chance Patrick Swayze will be managing the club next year though.

    I've heard David Bell as a candidate. That would generate a lot of excitement, not.

    I thought I'd read or heard from Morgan that he really doesn't harbor any interest in managing because it would tie him to routines that limit his ability to pursue the things he's been building since retiring from the game. He's got businesses, he is popular as a commentator, has moved into a trusted status as a spokesman for the traditions of the game through his involvement with the HOF; I have a hard time seeing him as a manager.

    Has the guy had any success anywhere he's been? I'd much rather take a chance on a first time manager than go down that road.

    Biggest move the team could make. Hopefully this will set the stage for some intelligent moves by the organization.

    Joe Morgan is Dusty baker without the intelligence.

    With all the crazy threads this forum has had over Baker, sabremetrics and on base percentage...I don't know what anyone expect will happen if Morgan took over the club. Not only does he hold sabremetrics in a similar regard as Dusty, but he's much more outspoken.

    Good players don't always make great managers. In fact, they usually make horrible managers.

    Bob was also sitting with his wife. I'd give Mrs. C about the same odds as Little Joe.

    I love Morgan, but this past year his big initiative was to start selling red and white wine at GABP. Going from that to managing the team would be one heck of an upgrade.
    This... IMHO, whomever gets the nod, it will only be for next year. They could try Joe out but I hope not. I'd rather not go through another episode like what happened with Tony.

    Morgan will never manage. That ship has sailed. He is pushing 70 and has to cushy of a life and to many business interests going on to take on managing.

    I feel bad for Dusty but it is the right move for the team to take a different direction. Jacoby needs to go too as this teams needs an entirely new approach. Price would be a good choice but I think they will go for a manager with experience.

    No, not Joe Morgan. Please no... That would ruin a perfectly happy Friday if Joe was announced.

    Re: Dusty out as manager

    I think the next manager needs to be the anti-Dusty...he needs to be a disciplinarian, not a laid back players manager. That means it should not be Riggleman. This is the silver lining that comes with losing on Tuesday. Putting the CTrent-Dat Dude incident aside, let's look at Dusty's handling of the team. As they melted down these last few weeks Dusty's reponse was something like "so what? The only game that means anything is Tuesday vs the Pirates...There's no urgency." Well now we see that there was urgency. He took the risk that after allowing his team to sleep walk through the end of the season that he could not awake them. He lived and died with that sort of approach to managing and today he "died by it."
