If not Ausmus then who?

Recommended Posts

If Ausmus is not back next season who do the Tigers turn to? It will be a tough sell knowing this team could lose 200 games the next 2 years.

It has to be someone willing to lose 100 games next year and after.... who wants that?

Lance Parrish will take it.

Can they just use Martinez as the manager?  They're paying him, they might as well get something out of him.

We need a manager with inpeccable skills when interacting with other players. Someone that is widely respected for his integrity. A person that won't leave the job undone and will always hold the respect of the fan base.

What's Denny McLain up to these days?

Astros bench coach Alex Cora, Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway, Indians first-base coach Sandy Alomar Jr., Cubs first-base coach Brandon Hyde, Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez, Dodgers third-base coach Chris Woodward, Nationals assistant hitting coach Jacque Jones, Red Sox bench coach Gary DiSarcina and D-backs bench coach Ron Gardenhire are among the managerial prospects who could remain busy through October.

Increasingly, MLB general managers have sought candidates with front-office experience: Dodgers special assistant Raul Ibanez, Dodgers director of player development Gabe Kapler, Rangers assistant general manager for player development Jayce Tingler and Braves special assistant Bo Porter all are serving in executive roles.

Mark DeRosa and David Ross are recently retired players who are currently working as broadcasters, but they are viewed within the baseball industry as potential managers; DeRosa interviewed for the Marlins' opening before the team hired Don Mattingly in 2015, according to a report by MLB.com's Joe Frisaro.

Joe McEwing (White Sox), Tim Bogar (Mariners), DeMarlo Hale (Blue Jays), Ron Wotus (Giants), Don Wakamatsu (Royals) and David Bell (Cardinals) are among the current bench coaches who could be considered for openings this fall.

 

I predict one of these guys.

Kapler is an interesting name. 

Not as interesting as Keplar, but it's close.

Honestly, I think it is an interesting question.  Do they go after a warm body or is there someone out there that they think can be the leader of an up and coming team with (hopefully) and influx of talent in 3 seasons and wouldn't mind putting up with crap results for the next 2 seasons?

The work the next two years will be in the front office and minor leagues.   The ML manager is just a figurehead at this point.

Brookens had the perfect manager stache.  I don't know what went wrong.  The Tigers are probably going to be terrible for a couple of years, so it doesn't really matter, but it would be fun to see Parrish as the manager.

Wasn't Brookens in line for a while?  What happened to Chambersburg's finest baseball player?

The Pennsylvania Poker.

OK, I'll do it.  But I'm putting @sabretooth in charge of the bullpen.
