    Louisville Manager

    So there has not been any manager named yet for the Bats, has anyone heard of any potential candidates? here are 5 guys I think could be considered.
    1. Corky Miller
    2. Billy Hatcher
    3. Joe Oliver
    4. Ryan Freel
    5. Some one that they would like to replace dusty with.

    Re: Louisville Manager

    I wouldn't look past Delino Deshields as a potential candidate

    I forgot about him, there are two others that I don't think are as likely and they are Riggleman and Griffey Sr.

    Rick Sweet? Some believe that his move to catching coordinator was largely the result of efforts to avoid losing Bell. Now that Bell is gone...

    The way I saw it was as stacking the organization against Dusty so they could bring in Rick Sweet.

    I am with '72, I read it as a way to keep David Bell in the organization.

    It could also go to Riggleman if he stays in the organization.

    Re: Louisville Manager

    When the Bats posted on facebook that Bell was gone, pretty much everybody commented that Corky Miller should replace him. He would be a very popular choice, and I would love to see him manage the Bats, but I think Rick Sweet would be a good move as well.

    Anything is possible, though I would think that if he is going to manage, it would begin in Billings or perhaps Dayton. You do not see a lot of Triple-A guys hired without some managerial experience. The White Sox did it at the big league level, but it is somewhat rare.

    Re: Louisville Manager

    The fans in Louisville love Corky which is why I could see him getting it but I say freel because he played with the aggressiveness that is needed in the system and he was around long enough to know how to put everything together as a manager.

    What the fans want is completely irrelevant to this conversation though. Fans in general are dumb. Simply being around long enough doesn't mean you can be a good manager.

    That is true, however catchers generally make better managers than other positions and Corky started with the Reds system and he would be a very good candidate to help make players better

    I was more so talking about Freel than Corky, but either way, I highly doubt you see a fresh to managing guy take over a AAA team. That just doesn't happen too often.
