I can't open it on my iPhone. Can someone sum it up?

Basically they are looking at everybody in baseball

AA is just so well spoken. You can't help but like the guy.

Cito suggests Juan Samuel as possible replacement.


Sorry Cito but I don't see it happening.

Its an interesting question though...

Sure, they can go with Brian Butterfield or Juan Samuel but they've never managed contending teams...and you would think that they would want to go with someone who has some experience getting the younger guys over that hump.

There's outsiders like Bobby Valentine and Mike Hargrove who bring great experience but may have been out of the majors for too long.

And then, of course, you have the big name thats out there....Joe Torre, whose contract with LA runs out after this season.

I don't envy AA.

I think hiring managers like Torre is not neccessary. I want a guy who fits in with AA's philosphy not that Torre doesnt. Alot of managers who are considered great like Torre, LaRusa, Cox have had great teams so they been lucky in some sense. I dont think a big name (icon) manager is neccesary.

I just hope we get someone who can manage a bullpen.

Be AA's biggest decision to date. Getting a good manager. Back in '80s we tried for Pinella but Yankees would not let him go without high compensation. If we had got him back then instead of Williams with team we had in late '80s, sure to do much better
