Me personally would rather have maddux... just so we can get rid of Riggins....didnt seem to be a good coach at all!

I'm confident Riggins is gone either way.

What was his contract? He might already be gone without a needing to say it.

His contract expired last week, I believe.

It is an interesting topic...I've always had a somewhat lower regard for the idea of pitchers becoming managers. It might be their reputation for being "different"...slightly more focused on one (highly critical) element of the game, and not necessarily having the ability to adjust to the broader picture.

On the flip side...Tommy Lasorda, Dallas Green, Roger Craig were all pitchers who became successful managers. Bud Black and John Farrell are also clearly well-regarded. If you had to bet on a pitching mind that might make a good manager...I'm pretty sure any Maddux would make the list.


Bud, Tom, Roger, and Dallas all managed in a World Series. I like our odds with Mr Maddux.
