    Re: Possible Managerial Candidates

    If Baker is fired, he would immediately be at the top of nearly everyone's list who is looking for a manager next year. He definitely would be a better option than anyone listed in this thread.

    Cox isn't unretiring.

    I pray that LaRussa isn't, either.

    Lou Pinella. What better situation to come out of retirement?

    I believe that Martinez is clearly the best of the non-retreads out there if a change must be made.

    Plus RedsZone may finally get its wish and see Ryan Hanigan at the top of the lineup.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    What is his resume?
    Why is he considered a hot commodity?

    Let's face it, the names out there don't seem to be that great, and I hope that Dusty is back.

    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.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Any insight into Bell's in-game management skills? Or do AAA managers have their hands tied too much by organizational directives to get a good indication how they perform?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    If that is the choice, then I say keep Dusty.

    Ok I'll throw a name out!!

    What do you all think Lloyd McClendon and what he could do with this team? He done a good job with the pirates with the players they had.With a team like the reds I think he could do a much better job than when he was with the pirates.
    I can spell,I just can't type!!
