    Re: Rick Sweet

    Has Sweet's name ever come up as a future Red's manager outside of Redszone? If Sweet has the experience and respect requisite of a manager; and also being from within the organization and having relationships with many of the players, it seems to make sense to he would be "promoted" at some point - especially during the current youth movement. I was just wondering if anyone may have hard something.

    Welshie has mentioned it a few times during games during his occasional mini rant about coaching jobs only being offered to people who have previously held major league coaching jobs.

    Who knows... maybe Dusty will decide he wants to spend more time with his family

    I like Rick Sweet, hope he gets a shot after Dusty gets the boot (at some juncture).

    I get the impression they're grooming Delino DeShields to take over for Dusty in a couple of years, or at least giving him the leeway to run things his way down in billings and now Dayton to help learn how to deal w/ the overall concept of running a team rather than just doing everything he can to develop prospects (ie moving Yorman out of CF which was probably good for the team but a setback in the hopes that Yorman could be a solid CFer down the road)
