The Marlins appear to have selected Girardi as their new manager. Tampa Bay still has a long list of candidates but Wash isn't on it. Does this mean we luck out and get this very valuable member of the team back? Sure hope so.
Have the Dodgers hired?
Not yet.LA will wait until afetr the WS but they asked to interview Terry Pendleton (who declined), Hersheiser, and Valentine. Wash's name has not been mentiooned recently for this opening.
Man, what a rip. Tampa and Florida looked like the best fits for Wash. Anyone else would be underutilizing him -- LA included. So we get him back (hooray!), but man, this flower's gotta bloom. Starting to feel for the guy.
I feel guilty to be rooting for him not to get a job elsewhere...
yup hopefully he will come back and teach these youngins how to play ball.
That's the reason that I think Wash would be a perfect fit in Tampa Bay. The only thing between hot-shot shortstop BJ Upton and the big leagues is his defense. I think Wash could help remedy that situation. Look what he's done for Chavez.
I think I would feel worse if Wash is overlooked for a manager job than I would be happy to see him stay. He deserves a chance. I just hope there's no prejudice involved. Same old, same old with MLB.
I agree with Jerry completely. Wash would be perfect for Tampa Bay. Sounds like they're going to be too stupid to hire him, though. Another great decision by the organization.
Does Wash being african american have anything to do with this?
"Does Wash being african american have anything to do with this?"
I said VERY early on that the best fit for Wash would be TB. That team is WAY better than than their record and they have some real studs ON the team and in the minors. I can't imagine a better fit and better fit for a first time manager gig - ie. not in LA or NY or anything like that.
All due respect, I think the question oaktownfan asks is fair.
Depo is filching Billy?
Washfan: ESPN.com reported that Pendleton turned down the chance to interview for the Dodgers job because he didn't want to be that far away from his family in Georgia
I saw that too.
Well maybe if Macha can get himself fired Wash could take over as interim.
...and we all know how much of a freaking genius Macha is!
I guess if the players did not like Crapha there would be a palace revolt....however; look what that got Byrnsie sent too two last placers.
