New Manager

  1. 1. Who do you want to be the new manager?



Recommended Posts

Now that we know when Bobby will retire the new question is who do you want to replace him? I vote for Ned Yost. He already has learned the errors of his ways so he won't make the same mistakes again. Plus he got the Brewers on the right track to respectablilty. Before he left to manage the Brewers he was with Bobby the longest.

Im not sold on Fredi yet and I dont think TP would do much good as a manager I went with Eddie because I think he'd be a perfect fit to follow Bobby and catchers usually make for great managers

I would be happy with Eddie Perez also. I'm just afraid that they are grooming TP to take over. That would be a huge mistake. Nobody listens to him as a hitting coach because he sucks so what makes me think the team will agree with his decisions as manager?

I voted for Ned because of the same reasons.

The way he got the Brewers going was very impressive.

i have a feeling fredi would burn alot of bridges with the current players though, he's known as a hard-*** to the Marlins... which might be a good change of pace, but it wont come without upsetting some current players

I think most of the players are going to be a little uncomfortable with whoever comes in after Bobby.

Players like Chipper know no one but Bobby and change is never anyone's strong suit.

Freddie Gonzalez would be great. Unfortunately, he's under contract with the Marlins through 2011, and they're unlikely to allow him to go to a team within the division.

Ned Yost is a good baseball guy, but his team never really got behind him in Milwaulkee. That may be more of a reflection on the players then on Ned, but nothing he did in Milwaulkee has made me want him back here.

Terry Pendleton may become a better manager than a hitting coach, but his overall hitting philosophy is just wrong for the organization. He's likely to hire a hitting coach with a philosophy similar to his, and that's just not working.

I like Eddie Perez, and I think he may make a good manager someday, but he needs some seasoning first, perhaps as a bench coach or third base coach. I've never heard of a bullpen coach making the jump up to manager.

My choices:

1. Roger McDowell

2. Phil Wellman

3. Jim Fregosi

Don't count on it.

Agreed. Minnesota is a great baseball town and they always sellout when they are in the race for the playoffs and with them getting a new stadium next year. A better question would be why would anyone leave Minnesota for Atlanta with our sorry fan base? I have been really disappointed with the crowds the last 2 nights. I was totally expecting 40,000.
