Manager... I got nothing.

Yup hence my playground post
the main board only frustrates me because there is no real discussion.
It's the worst it's ever been (which is saying something).

I' m saying if the new manager hire is a rookie then a veteran presence is needed to be the sounding board for the new hire.I'll take Lovullo as that guy as nobody else stands out from what I've read on the possible candidates.Maybe Hinch comes aboard as the bench coach or how about Varitek ? The former catchers IMO bring a lot to the brain department.

I realized I have no idea or reason to want any of our candidates. I just don't have anyway to give an intelligent reason to be pro/con with any of these guys, and the main board only frustrates me because there is no real discussion.
this is the problem. I don't think anyone knows really anything about these guys that is why the discussion is so horrendous. Personally I would like to see a "smart guy" that is more firey than professor. A guy that always has his players backs that will bring that to the field. This was the thing I liked the least about Svuem (who I actually would liked to see given one more year). When the Cards had a dirty take out slide, the very next batter should have gotten one in the ribs.

I completely agree, and I wonder if there's a bias for people who think managers don't really matter that much. I am sort of in that school of thinking that a good manager or a bad manager are almost always function of a talented organization or a less talented organization.
