Most over-rated manager in the history of baseball. Not that he's a bad manager, per se, but that his hype (especially the hype he generates himself) is so overblown.

Dave Martinez to manage the Nationals. :blink:
Oh, and Phillies hired Gabe Kaplan to manage. His only experience managing was Class A in 2007. :shock:

Still waiting on the Yankees. Based on what the Red Sox, Phillies, and Nationals did, the candidate pool appears to be shallow. :?

Nah, he got hired on the strength of his blogging. Trust me, coconut oil. Look it up.

Another tidbit, while the game was going on, someone burglarized Puig’s House. Not a good day for him.

D-Backs credit him with the makeover that got them the 30+ game improvement this year.

Sure he gets some credit, but a lot of those guys where there before he got there. He had the benefit of not having that bad of an organization to step into.

I'm still waiting for the Dodgers to hire Hershiser. Roberts sucks....

It was Gardenhire on the bench that should get the credit.

Zero managerial experience at any level...

He better be an super motivator, at minimum...

Girardi wouldn't sit and eat lunch with Cashman anymore, maybe Boone will become Cashman's lunch buddy.

The plot thickens. :popcorn:
The Babe Ruth of Japan, Shohei Ohtani, will not be playing in the city where Ruth became a legend. Nor will he play where the Babe began his career.

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman informed reporters Sunday night that Ohtani's representatives have told the team that it will not be invited to meet with the starter/slugger face-to-face. The Yankees have been preparing for months their bid for the services of the 23-year-old with a 100 mph fastball and devastating swing.

Boston Red Sox GM Dave Dombrowski also said Sunday that Boston is out of the running.

Cashman said Ohtani seems to be leaning toward West Coast teams in smaller markets.

According to multiple reports, the Minnesota Twins, Oakland Athletics, Milwaukee Brewers, Pittsburgh Pirates, Toronto Blue Jays, Arizona Diamondbacks, Chicago White Sox, New York Mets and Tampa Bay Rays are also out.

Possibly. I wonder why he is limiting his selection to 'smaller market' teams though. I get the West Coast thing for him. But wouldn't he want to actually have a chance to win something meaningful?

Contending for what? :? A .500 record? They haven't even made the playoffs since you were a sperm blob.

You're 19 years old, right? I'm impressed if you were able to get it up AND blast something outta there at such a young age. :clap:
