I also find it as interesting that neither Chicago or Boston interviewed Dave Martinez for their respective managers spots after him being mentioned for their short lists. Maybe I just missed something but I don't recall any follow up from either team on Martinez... ...

I have wondered why also. My theory is that he is an old school guy that doesn't use advanced statistigs much. Also, I think that he is so connected to the cubs everyone sees him as a person that would jump ship given the opportunity so they do not want to "invest" in him. I could be wrong, but I also wonder why.I'm really, really curious why though. It's certainly telling, but it's not answering.
The fact that he can't seem to land a big league coaching job - let alone a managerial gig - is striking. And maybe telling.

That's kind of what I wonder.
I wonder (and I believe it's been speculated) that Ryno will only accept a manager job and is actively telling teams that he will not accept a bench coach, base coach, etc. If that is correct his bravado to only accept a job as manager without MLB coaching experience could be the reason teams avoid him. He really needs to accept a coach/assistant role if he plans on reaching the MLB as a manager.
